What is nutrition?
There is a big difference between the latest fad, or the opinion of the newest blogger, and a real strategy based on scientific research and proven to get results. Nutrition is no different. In taking on anything new, there are always questions. And when it comes to diets and eating, it’s hard to cut through all of the noise out there. The actual truth about nutrition, however, is that it’s fairly simple.
REAL, EFFECTIVE NUTRITION FOCUSES ON ONLY FIVE THINGS:
You’re getting the right amount of the right things and limiting the things that can have a negative effect on your health.
2. Calorie Control
This isn’t about just reducing calories; it’s about making sure you have the right amount of calories throughout the day to keep your system working effectively.
You don’t take in an excess amount of those things that can have a negative impact on your health.
Ensure proper nutrition but also eliminate the monotony of a diet. Variety is the spice of life!
Make sure you’re getting all of the essential nutrients you need to maintain health and replace what is lost on a daily or weekly basis.

Even the best plan will fail if it’s not executed properly. You will improve your results if you remember that your custom meal plan has been designed to be:
A road map, not a rulebook.
Give your best 80% every day, and even pick a cheat day (probably a weekend day) to take some liberties. With a little flexibility, you’ll find it easier to follow your plan on the other days, and, more often than not, you’ll start doing better on those “cheat” days over time too.
Used throughout a three to four week period, even though it’s a seven-day plan.
Human nature says we like patterns, so you’ll use the plan as a guide day-to-day and week-to-week for a while. It’s typical that around week four, two things will happen: you’ll begin to want a something new; and the results you’re creating in your weight/ body composition and activity level will produce new recommended calculations that will require a new meal plan.
OK, you’ve got your own customized meal plan, and you’re committed to following through with it, but you can boost your odds of success by knowing the five key factors about what we’re putting in our bodies:
