Real-talk from the pros
On meal prep for weight loss...
"With meal prep, it's the small daily changes that count. Committing to 1-2 months of meal prep will pay off. If you are someone who is using meal prep for weight loss, you are going to be STOKED with how fast you can see change. Stick to the plan and kick ass."
- Eric "Erock" Botsford (Fitness Writer | 7X CrossFit Games Regional Athlete | Fitness Coach)
On the secret to consistency...
"Despite the best intentions, many people find themselves throwing in the towel after only a month or two of exercising and dieting. Your motivation may be high but it’s essential to have a well-prepared set of goals and actions steps. Without the roadmap to your fitness goals, you’ll never reach your destination because you won’t know how to get there."
- David Sautter (Fitness Writer | NASM Personal Trainer | NASM Nutrition Specialist)
On knowing how many calories you need for your goals...
"Not calculating your recommended daily intake of calories in order to lose weight is like trying to get to a new city without a map or GPS: it probably won’t happen."
- John Papp (Fitness Writer | CPT)
On beating the afternoon slump...
"When the afternoon rolls around you’ve probably had a meal or two and maybe a snack in-between. Maybe you’re feeling a little tired and are struggling to stay focused. Maybe you’re thinking of skipping your gym session after work. The mid-point in your day is a window for supplementation. When you cut calories, which is an inevitable part of the weight loss process, it's common to feel depleted, tired and in need of energy. In those moments, supplements can help you push through and stay on track with your goals. Whether it's a weight loss support supplement that helps energize you or a whey protein that helps keep your appetite in check between meals, supplements can enhance the effort you are already put into your nutrition and workout plan."
- Craig Capurso (Cellucor Athlete | Former IFBB | Fitness Coach & Author)
