The next, and often overlooked factor is sleep. Sleep is everything. If you have the best diet, nutrition, exercise, and training protocol – but your sleep is lacking, inconsistent, or just not of the highest quality – then none of this matters, period.
Sleep is the time when your body’s cells regenerate, your muscles repair themselves, your brain is allowed to recover and flush out toxins. And this is when (surprise!) all your fat loss actually occurs. You do not and cannot drop fat while awake, fact.
You’re super serious about your health goals and are eager to see results soon! Perfect!
A formal consultation is the first step in this process.
If you sign up for a formal consultation, you will receive a detailed questionnaire to fill out which I use to create a customised nutrition plan or formalised blueprint for you to follow.
I analyse your answers and the metrics you’ve recorded to define goals, calories, energy balance, macronutrients, deficits and surplus. I look at micro level detailing of your eating habits and patterns and suggest foods to add or delete based on your preferences, via a formalised blueprint.
The Blueprint will also include suggestions for eating frequency, windows and patterns. It will suggest pre and post workout nutrition options and recommend supplementation based on any deficits that show up in your questionnaire. Styles and frequency of training are also recommended.
The goal is to create a sustainable short and long term strategy to ensure you’re always in optimal health.
After creating the blueprint, a consultation call is arranged during which we go through the blueprint together. I explain macros and the role of hormones in overall health and take care of any comments, concerns or questions you may have. Once we’re aligned on the route forward, the Blueprint is sent to you.
This Blueprint will serve as the guide through your transformation journey.
