You CANNOT out train a poor diet!

Why do we use the term Food Freedom? 

It's because diets don't work. We focus more on what a sustainable lifestyle looks like, and ensuring that we can continue that sustainable lifestyle for a lifetime.

Here we provide 3 simple strategies for anyone who is ready to make realistic changes to how they approach food and what they put into their bodies.

Strategy #1

Sip & Stand: Minimum 2L - Water is extremely important. If you are working out on a consistent basis, you should be drinking a minimum of 2L of water every day. If you are not properly hydrated, your body will not be able to function efficiently. It's recommended to sip water throughout the day, versus chugging large amounts at a time.

Tip: Set a timer every 48 minutes to drink a glass of water.

Strategy #2

Pledge the veg - Eat a minimum of 2+ cups of vegetables per day, but we recommend 4+ cups. Also, make sure that you are consuming a variety of vegetables, with 3-5 different variations of vegetables to maintain a good balance.

Vegetables contain your vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and they are also great for your hydration. This help your body refuel as for better results as you are training.

Strategy #3

Pair your Proteins - We recommend that you eat protein with every meal you consume. For most, getting protein at dinner is easy, but we typically don't get enough protein for breakfast and lunch. Protein in phenomenal for muscle building, healing your body and increasing your energy.

Why should you consume protein for each meal? Because your body will use and absorb approximately 30g of protein per meal serving. Not eating enough protein throughout the day will make it more difficult for your body to properly use the protein that you do give it.

Tip: Eat 4-6 ounces of protein each meal.

Bonus: Strategy #4

Quality Probiotics are extremely important for gut health and you are only as healthy as your digestive system! This is a bonus because probiotics help to better digest the vegetables and protein you're eating.

We recommend a probiotic with at least 20 billion per capsule, so you don't have to take multiple capsules per day.
