70% is nutrition 30% exercise.
Getting nutrition right helps with energy levels, stress, hormone balance, sleep, recovery, growth, losing body fat and not to mention the compliments you will receive.
Heres what I do
I find out my clients TDEE ( total daily energy expenditure )
Once I have the clients estimated TDEE I then put their calories into either a calorie deficit (-500 below TDEE) or calorie surplus (+500 above TDEE) depending on their goals.
Once I have worked out how much calories they require to reach there goals I then work out the macronutrient split of protein, carbohydrates and fats for them and devise a healthy meal plan for them to follow.
