Remember, everyone will approach nutrition differently. There really is no cookie-cutter way to do it. We ask you to consider the following when it comes to your approach to fuel.
Find a system that works for you – For some people this will be 5 smaller meals a day, others it might be 3 larger ones.
Be consistent – Building muscle takes dedication and time. Nothing will happen overnight. If you’re following a system that is not compatible with you or your lifestyle, you will not be able to be consistent.
Use food first – The right supplements can help to fill the gaps, but should not be your focus.
Keep it simple – Prioritise real, un-processed foods. You do not need to create elaborate recipes, or buy obscure “superfoods” from all over the globe.
There are NO “bad” foods, just principles
By Charlie Binns
Charlie has been in the nutrition and fitness industry for over ten years. He started as a level 3 personal trainer, and then his interest went down the performance nutrition route. He has a Masters in Applied Sports Nutrition from Leeds Trinity, where he completed his level 1 ISAK accreditation. Charlie is currently the first team nutritionist for Tottenham Hotspur FC.
Charlie's approach was described by Jude Bellingham (professional footballer for Borussia Dortmund). He said: "Charlie took the time to speak to me individually about what food I like and what food I should be eating to match the targets we set based off my weight, body fat etc. This has helped me stay in the best physical condition possible to maintain my performance level both in training and in games."
