Preparation is Key
If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail. This holds true for your workouts and will be imperative for your success with nutrition, always plan ahead! For nutrition I like prep my pre and post workout meals ahead of time. This creates consistency in my diet and allows flexibility in my meal choices through the rest of my day!

There’s no such thing as bad food!
Except pufferfish, if prepared wrong that could be your last meal! In all seriousness, I hate the term “clean” foods because it gives food a black and white image. If you’re eating chicken, broccoli, and, rice every single meal, I can confirm there’s a much more effective way to diet! Take the time to learn more about nutrition and understand how foods can affect your body! Bottom line, there’s no such thing as bad food!

Don’t just count the reps, Make the reps COUNT.
To many of us, me included, we show up to the gym, do our routine, and just count the reps! We don’t actually make the reps count. One easy way to feel the difference is apply negatives to your sets. Let’s take a bicep curl for example. Instead of curling up and letting the weight drop, curl the weight up and from the top, let the weight slowly come down for counts of 3-4 seconds. Rinse, repeat. You’ll definitely feel the difference between counting the reps and making the reps count after applying negatives!

Strive for progress, not perfection.
With social media on the rise, it’s almost second hand nature to take an image of an inspiring individual and compare ourselves. You may see someone lose 2 pounds per week while you are only losing 0.5lbs. Are you doing anything wrong? If you are following your plan to a tee, probably not! Understand that everyone progresses at different rates. As long as you are moving in a direction: progress is progress.

Don’t Forget Fiber!
Fiber is not a macronutrient, but it is one of the most overlooked micronutrients! A lot of us will track carbohydrates, fats, and proteins, but most of us overlook fiber! Fiber helps keep your digestive system regulated, your appetite satiated, and fiber also helps improve insulin control! You’ll typically need to go to nutrient dense foods such as vegetables, fruits, and whole grains for fiber!
