TAKE IT OFF AND KEEP IT OFF

When you’re trying to live a healthier lifestyle - or, at least, a less unhealthy one, whether it be recovery or cutting out junk food or upping the exercise - words can be far more triggering than actions.

Apparently this needs to be a PSA or something, because some of the most well-meaning people can turn into the worst instigators without even realizing it.  And they’ll just say it again and again until you break again.  It’s not your fault, it’s not their fault, it’s not any one person’s fault.

But it feels like you failed, and it hurts nonetheless.

Get enough sleep
Just one extra hour’s sleep per night in the run-up to a major event can make a huge difference to your physical appearance and your general mood.
Drink water
Water is vital to feeling and looking better, and I recommend that my clients drink at least eight to 10 glasses of water per day. If you become dehydrated your body underperforms and you can end up feeling tired and sluggish.
Have a day off between workouts
You become physically stronger when you recover from training, not during the session itself. Even when I was training Hugh Jackman for X-Men II we trained only every other day.
Plan ahead
This applies to everything. To help you stick to your nutrition plan you should take ‘good’ food with you. This way you avoid the temptation to stray. Another tip is to use a diary to schedule your workout and rest days. This way you always know where you are, and you can make sure you have fun on your days off.
Read the label
Some food packaging can be really misleading. For example, low-fat products often have elevated levels of sugar (simple carbohydrates) and some bottled water has high levels of salt (sodium; or Na).

If you aren’t recovering from an eating disorder, you are dying from it.
