FREE 28-Day SLFitness Summer Shred Programme – Nutrition & Supplementation
Hello and welcome back to my second and final part of the FREE 28-day SLFitness Summer Shred Programme, this section will discuss nutrition and supplementation. Covered will be:
Things to remember
Overview of nutrition
Tips to success
Don’t forget, the workouts are only one part of your journey. Being strict when it comes to nutrition and supplements is the only way to really achieve your goals for summer – helping you to push your performance, refuel, and recover the right way, every single time.
When it comes to eating healthily, nobody wants to just eat dry chicken and plates of veg. And you don’t have to. You can lose weight with a controlled, carefully considered diet as long as you get the nutritionals you need to reach your goals.
Plus, this way, you’re more likely to stick with it over my 28-day programme and get the results you want in time for summer!
THINGS TO REMEMBER… ARE YOU EATING ENOUGH?
Losing weight and toning up isn’t about starving yourself – you need enough calories to perform as you should. This lets your body work efficiently and helps create a healthy metabolism.
DRINK PLENTY OF WATER
We can’t stress this enough! When looking to tone up or lose weight, it’s vital to stay hydrated so that your liver can metabolise fat efficiently.
THINK PROTEIN, PROTEIN, PROTEIN
Include the stuff in every single meal as it supports the growth and maintenance of all-important muscle, and when combined with good fats and carbs it’ll help you achieve the lean results you’re looking for. Struggling to add it into your busy schedule? Always have a shake on hand to make sure you meet your daily intake.
DON’T FEAR FATS!
Despite what many people think, fat does not equal fat. Your body needs healthy fats from food such as sh, nuts, dairy and avocados. They can help with better body composition, as well as making you feel fuller for longer!
You don’t want to self-sabotage by enjoying a few beers or glasses of wine all too often! Your favourite drink is probably packed with calories and your performance will most likely take a hit the next day.
CUT OUT ‘REFINED CARBS’
Cut out biscuits, cakes and fizzy drinks. When it comes to dropping these sugar-filled snacks, it’s a no-brainer.

AND FINALLY… SIMPLE STEPS TO SUCCESS.
With my SLFitness 28-day programme, you’ll soon be putting in the work and becoming a master at food prep to make sure you’re ready for summer.
So, I’ve got a few more tips to help you on your journey to being the brightest and lightest you. These are super-simple, but put into practice, can make a massive difference…
READ ALL FOOD LABELS
Be proactive and educate yourself with what you’re putting in your mouth.
Some supermarket foods replace low sugar content with excessively higher fat. Familiarise yourself with the macronutrients and sugars of all foods.
Find an inspiring influence and use them to keep your- self motivated at every moment.
Choose an individual you can relate to – either a sporting hero or a public figure. Constantly remind yourself that when it comes to achieving goals, you are no different. My motivation is Leon Scott as he is down to Earth and also enjoys a social life which what life is about – balance!
Calculate your calorie intake so you know you’re reaching your daily targets.
Monitor your calories as accurately as you can. Write everything down in your own personalised ‘calorie diary’. Review this every day to make sure you’re getting it right. Alternatively if you are a client with myself use the macros tracker from the app on your mobile device.
Keep checking you’re achieving results, but remember, patience is the key. And set yourself realistic targets! We’re going to help you reach your summer goals, but this is just the start of a positive lifestyle change for even greater results!
AND THAT’S EVERYTHING YOU NEED FOR SUMMER ’18…
But these workouts, nutrition tips, and supplements are just the start of your journey to a happier and healthier lifestyle.
Dedicate yourself for 28 days and you’ll achieve some great results, but you’ll also learn the basics to help develop your long-term fitness, for the rest of the year and beyond.
