Often times when people first start on their journey of improved health, they ask a million and one questions.

Here are some frequently asked questions:

What is the best diet for fat loss?

It depends. When it comes to a diet and/or nutrition plan, the best one is a plan that you can easily follow. Whether you are doing the Atkins, Paleo, or Ketogenic diet – you want a diet that you can comply to the longest. When committing to a diet for 30+ days, the biggest change comes from the individual being more aware of what they are eating.

Accountability is the success factor!

Best exercise for a better bum?

It depends. The first step to getting a better bum is to be realistic. If you have a body type like Paris Hilton but want the bum of Serena Williams, then you are in for a rude awakening. When it comes to improving your bum or any part of your body for that matter – focus on creating a new version of yourself.

Do not compare yourself to someone else, as no one is built the exact same way as you. Even twins can have completely different body types. If you feel your glutes contract, you are on the right path!

Best time of the day to train?

It depends. The best time to train is whatever time suits your schedule whether it be 6am, 10am, 5pm or 9pm. Take a look at your schedule and see where you can make time for the gym.

If scheduling is a constant hassle, then there is a good chance you won’t keep up this habit change for long.


How many hours of sleep should I get?

It depends. Before focusing on the number of hours, try to improve the quality of your sleeping habits. If you sleep a disrupted 5 hours a night, going to bed early for 7 hours will not make you feel better.

Here are a two things you can do to improve your quality of sleep:

  • Step way from electronics 30 minutes prior to sleep.
  • Few drops of chamomile and lavender essential oil on your pillow case prior to bed.

This will help get your body ready for sleep.
Your body needs a sleep ritual!

On the road to achieving a healthier you, there is no ONE approach. It all comes down to figuring out what works best for you. Implement these strategies to assure that you’re on the right road to success.
