FITNESS 10 — Earn your carbs.

FATLOSS TIPS 1 — When it comes to training and nutrition, consistency is key. 2 — Find a physical activity that you enjoy and plan around it, but make sure you’re goal driven otherwise you will find yourself running in circles. 3 — Success depends on You. 4 — Find an experienced coach 5 — If you’re not nervous about your next training session, you are doing it wrong. 6 — Find a good programme and stick to it. 7 — When training remember: The bigger the base, the taller the peak. Too many people try to work at their physical maximum, only to find it later. 8 — Mobility comes first. It doesn’t matter how big or how strong you are, if you don’t have the flexibility you’re going to do more harm than good. 9 — Replace your weights each time you use them. Trust me on this one.

11 — Eat the rainbow. No, not skittles, but loads of differently coloured veg. 12 — Drink at least a half litre of water before breakfast and keep drinking it throughout the day. 13 — With protein powder, you get what you pay for. At Hybrid, we opt for ICON whey (see sidebar). 14 — Avoid coffee after 1pm. 15 — Cooking with coconut oil. 16 — Opt for dark chocolate over milk. The bitterness will stop you eating as much. 17 — Treat yourself every now and then. Don’t make yourself feel miserable. 18 — Eat a good source of protein like chicken or fish with every meal. 19 — If you do slip up, remember it’s not the end of the world. Put it behind you and get back on the wagon. MICHAEL LENNON PERSONAL TRAINER HYBRID FITNESS, BELFAST
