Below you will find information about why we eat the way we do on the AWPT nutritional plan. Remember this is NOT a diet and I NEVER want you to be hungry or skip meals. Skipping meals is not healthy and I have provided enough recipes and ideas on how to cook healthy food that tastes great and will also get you in amazing shape!
This plan has been developed for individuals who are active and workout regularly as well as those who are not as active and do not exercise. Although I would highly recommend regular exercise as it has so many proven physical and psychological benefits. Individuals who are regularly exercising will require more fuel to aid with working out and recovering efficiently. This is explained in further detail in the “Eating for Working Out/ Exercising” section of this plan.
Please read through the following sections as it explains the science behind our eating approach and the foods, that are AWPT approved, to be included in your meals.
Before starting this nutritional plan and on a weekly basis you should take a full body picture (or selfie). This will allow you to monitor how your body is changing with your eating habits and also lets you log your progress. This, alongside how your clothes look and feel, is a fantastic way to keep you honest to the plan. You don’t have to share these photos with anyone but yourself – they are purely for you! I much prefer this method compared to using the weighing scales, as it is a far fairer interpretation of results. There are too many variables (e.g. hormones, water weight, muscle mass) with the number readings that you get from standing on the weighing scales every day!
If ever you have any questions then please do let me know in the forum on the website.
I hope you enjoy following this new healthy lifestyle as much as my clients and I do already!
