For many years, especially my early years, I did not believe someone if they would tell me that Abs are made in the kitchen.
Later years and after two phenomenal fitness mentors, I finally realized that the food you intake, not only makes a difference physically, but in your whole lifestyle.
Once I adopted a healthy lean lifestyle, I felt more energetic and positive in my everyday living.
The first important thing I discovered was that one need to opt into a healthy lifestyle and not diet. A diet is not sustainable and one tend to “overdo food” once the diet is over. A healthy lifestyle is sustainable and will keep you full of energy and in a good state of mind.
My week normally looks more or less the following.
Monday to Friday:
Breakfast at 5am: Oats or yoghurt with protein powder and chia seeds.
