Nutrition and diet is so fundamental to a good training programme, a question I often get asked is ‘how do you stick to your diet’. The answer is BALANCE. I am currently into my off season and won’t be competing for another several months, this doesn’t mean I forget my healthy eating lifestyle and switch to fast foods, but this also doesn’t mean having to stick to such a rigid routine, like along the lines of chicken broccoli and rice.

During off season I eat around 5-6 meals a day, I increase my carbohydrate intake to make up most of my calorie consumption, my meals are always varied in order that I don’t get bored, but for me preparation is key. I spend two evenings a week cooking up enough meals to last me the next 2-3 days this way there is no excuse to let diet slip. Fail to prepare, Prepare to fail.

However that being said, I do still love to indulge just like everybody else, we are all human at the end of the day. I allow myself one cheat meal a week, and also one ‘clean’ cheat as I have a slight sweet tooth.

Below I’ve added in a few of my favourite clean cheat recipes for you to try.
