What are the top 3 things you see people do to mess up their nutrition? I would say people primarily go too complicated too soon, so with that in mind: 1) Over supplementation; 2) Incorrect portion sizing; 3) Not balancing through all food groups / cutting meals/ cutting out specific foods.
How has your perspective on nutrition and exercise changed over the years? I used to think purely about performance. Am I performing better and better, regardless of how I felt day to day or overall health. As long as performance when up it didn't matter. Now I'm much more focused on the 'big picture' and how I 'feel' and general health.
What are the top 3 things you see people do to mess up their exercise? 1) Try to push through pain or an injury. Pain is the body telling us to stop, so we should listen. When we're injured we never give ourselves that extra day, take it, and you'll feel better.
2) Doing more and more and more. Doing more always isn't the answer, training smarter might be though!
3) Recovery/Auto regulate - make sure your getting a good nights sleep and recovering correctly, with that being said if you haven't then tweak your next session to avoid injury. You don't always HAVE to do every single thing no matter what.
Fast food is… Heroin. Kidding. It's highly processed, fake food meant to taste so non-bland we can eat loads and spend tons of money on something that won't do any good for us.
The key to my fitness and health success is… Auto regulating, with my past injuries, it's been increasingly important to listen to how my body reacts and feels day to day, session to session. I would say this and playing some kind of sport / game. Nothing develops your movement skills better and teaches how YOU MOVE better than this.
Bonus: What is your favorite supplement? A good whey protein is always a must when looking for a quick snack and refuelling. As well as fish oils on the regular.
