The Basics of Nutrition


Protein is key for sustaining lean muscle and losing body fat! We recommend ladies eat between 0.7-1.0g per pound of bodyweight. Guys should eat between 1.0-1.2g per pound.


Fats play a crucial role in hormone regulation. They are the most calorically dense food at around 9 calories per gram, so they are the easiest "macro" to overeat--but that doesn't mean they are "bad" for you.


Carbohydrates are your brain's primary fuel source. Carbohydrates also help with short-term energy, like during your workout, as well as muscle repair after your workout.

Important "Non-Nutritional" Elements


We recommend at least 80 ounces of water a day. Removing or reducing other beverages in your diet will help you shed weight FAST!


The only thing more important than water intake is your sleep! You need AT LEAST 7 hours of sleep per night.

Daily Activity

Increasing your daily activity (outside of the gym) will also go a long way in aiding your nutrition goals. We recommend at least 8,000 steps on days you workout and 10,000 steps on days that you do not workout.
