By now you are probably well aware of my cardinal rule when it comes to nutrition…protein first at every meal! The importance of adequate protein in your diet cannot be overstated.

When it comes to losing weight or improving health, the vast majority of people seek out some magic “answer”.

We need adequate fat to support metabolism, signal cells to support hormone production, immunity and nutrient absorption. Having enough fat in your diet will also keep you full between meals and help regulate blood sugar.
What’s your primary motivation for exercising and eating clean? If you say it is because you want to look good, it doesn’t mean you’re vain and if you’re willing to admit it, it probably means you’re fairly honest 😉
