Here are some tips that will help you focus on building the foundation, which will help you achieve the greatest level of success possible going forward.

Nutrition
– Cook your own meals using whole foods
– Eat 1 Gram of protein for every pound of your goal weight
– Consume at least 20 percent of your calories from healthy fat
