A few months ago I posted up an article helping you calculate the calories and macronutrients you need to help with your fat loss goals. It’s proven to be a hit with my clients and a lot of people on my social media handles.
However, Recently I have had a number of people ask me what the best way is to put on muscle and if they need to do anything different from the fat loss article. Well, the short answer is yes.

Darn it..!!

You probably already know what stops you from achieving your health and fitness goals: nutrition or lack of healthy nutrition habits. Most likely you know what you should be doing but for some reason when it comes to making the choice you pick the wrong one.
