Have you ever pushed through a workout, but felt miserable because you didn’t have any energy, weren’t able to work as hard as usual, get that many reps or lift as heavy as you expected?
Eating out often is the biggest challenge when you’re trying to build new lifestyle habits, become healthier and lose fat.

How To Calculate Your Macro's For Fat Loss
I would say that this is one of the key questions I get asked as a personal trainer. It's not as a direct question like the title suggests but it's phrased "How can I lose weight?"
A couple weeks ago I posted up a Fat loss calculator on my blog. This was a very basic and easy way for the readers to calculate their fat loss quickly. However, I felt it was not very personal and it only gave you a vary rough idea.

So with out further adieu here's what you have been waiting for.

Consuming plenty of protein is important for health, performance and body composition. Consuming the right amount of protein has a number of health benefits, it can help you lose weight, (especially belly fat) and help repair and build muscle after a workout which in turn helps increase your muscle mass and strength.
The recommend daily intake (RDI) is 56 grams for men, and 46 grams for women. However, many health and fitness experts believe that we need more that that. To help you achieve your protein intakes you do not need to rely on expensive protein shakes, here is a list of 17 great tasting, high protein foods.
This is the holy grail and your definitive guide to the number one question asked by all clients. How do I lose Fat?
