He eats over 10,000 calories EVERDAY!


Yep, that’s right….

Over 10,000 kcals, EVERY DAY, you read it correctly,

In one day……….


That’s a serious intake, right?!

‘He’ in this case is Eddie Hall, who also happens to be one of the strongest men on this planet………weighing in at over 29 stone…..

My girlfriend and I watched Eddie’s documentary on Netflix last night in which he chats about his colossal calorie intake and his training & lifestyle……

Eddie claimed he doesn’t count calories now, as he has an accurate idea from sheer experience of eating in a certain manner for years…

When he did track his intake, he said it clocked in at over a MASSIVE 10,000 CALORIES A DAY!

Ha, we were both amazed! He literally eats a full pizza and tub of ice cream most days!

My point to you today is to simply ask you:

Do you know or at least have an idea how many calories you are eating on a daily basis?

Chances are its not 10,000, but Eddie only knew this by initially tracking & measuring his intake.

I’m not suggesting you have to track every single calorie you eat from now to eternity…

However, if you are not where you want to be with your goals, tracking things for a certain period of time can help you to educate yourself on what you are truly eating.

From there you will gather experience & knowledge that you can apply to your life, so if you allow a little treat it can be factored into your daily targets.

That’s all for today,

Until the next time,

P.S –When I do track calories, I use the My Fitness Pal app. It’s easy to use and it’s free, try it and educate yourself on yourself. Any issues, give me a shout.


Why your hairdresser is right…….


Have ever looked in a magazine, seen a pic of someone and thought to yourself:

He/she looks cool, I LOVE their hair…….I want that hairstyle……

You book your appointment and strut into the salon all ready & fired up for your new look, and after your discussing it, your hairdresser tells you……………

It’s not for you!


This is often because your professional stylist knows that you simply cannot reproduce the same look yourself.

It’s perhaps just not a manageable style for you to have to deal with on a daily basis.

So if you did go for this new style, you’d maybe look great for that day (with the help of your stylist) but what would you do when left to style/maintain it yourself?

>Would you end up in a worse position in terms of your lovely locks?

The same logic applies to your health & fitness goals:

I pretty confident I could get you to do A LOT more than you may currently be doing in the gym in terms of intensity, and you would definitely step out your comfort zone, however:

If you can’t consistently reproduce this yourself, what’s the point?

>Anyone can train hard once.


>Nobody got in great shape by doing just one intense workout.

If the intensity cannot be matched/reproduced, I’d suggest you’d be better scaling it down to a more manageable level.

You need a find a level of intensity that challenges you but also allows you to build a foundation of progression.

Your hairdresser and I have your best interests in mind, and we are both thinking about your long term happiness and success.

If you need a hand in establishing a routine that you CAN stick to, give me a shout.

That’s all for today, until the next time,

Christmas Shopping -HELP!


Christmas Shopping……….

There I was…. wandering around the shop aimlessly

……..trying to find what I was looking for…

No joy……

I popped into town last week to get a gift for someone, but couldn’t find it anywhere in the shop!

I didn’t even know where to start……

So I asked the first shop assistant I saw….she didn’t know, but she suggested another girl may know……

Still no joy……

So girl 2, asked girl 3 &……….SUCCESS!

Hallelujah, a Christmas miracle!!

My point today is that you get where you want to be far quicker by simply asking the right person the right questions……

If you don’t know the answers (like girl 1 & girl 2), that’s ok, you just need to find somebody that does!

I could of spent/wasted far more of my time attempting to find what I was looking for and I may or may not have got there eventually but what’s the point when I can accelerate the results by getting advice & seeking the right person to help me?

This is EXACTLY the same with your health & fitness goals.

You are NOT expected to know all the answers, you just need to ask the right questions…

That’s all for today, until the next time,

P.S – it’s always better to confidently not know something, than to under confidently try to know something………

Does your ‘diet start again tomorrow’?


Does your ‘diet start again tomorrow’?

In your mind, have you been ‘bad’ or ‘fallen off the wagon’ this weekend?

Starting tomorrow, is this week going to be different?

> What changes are you going to make?

> Most importantly, what changes are you going to be able to stick to?

How is this week going to be TRULY different to any other week?

What action can you take to put yourself one step closer to achieving your goals?

Consider this, what is greater?

The pain of change?
The pain of remaining the same?

What will happen if you don’t change?

Why not make this week truly different?

Trust me when I say you CAN change.

That’s all for today, until the next time.
