Getting in shape and feeling good is not just about working out but what you eat too. That’s why we provide eating plans with our camps along with dedicated online healthy eating groups where you can ask for advice and be inspired

When it comes to nourishing your body, and ensuring you stay fit, healthy and looking the best you can no matter what your age, eating the right breakfast is crucial. But what is the RIGHT breakfast?

Ask most women, and they would choose porridge or muesli as being the kind of breakfast that will help them to lose weight. It will if you’re usual breakfast is a croissant and a latte.

BUT if you real aim is shape change, protein is queen of breakfasts, whether that is eggs, a protein shake or even Greek yoghurt (many other forms of yoghurt contain sugar) with roasted nuts and seeds.

This food souce is the only thing that helps your muscles to repair and create new muscle tissue, absolutely VITAL if you want to avoid fat spread.

Forget running, cardio, and long drawn out workouts, creating muscle tissue through lifting weights and then supporting that change with the right nutrition is essential.

And why is building muscle SO important, particulalry from your mid twenties onwards? Because as women we lose muscle mass at the rate of 0.5 – 15 per YEAR from the age of 25. And as muscle is active and burns calories even as you’re sitting down, that means you will put on weight UNLESS you use weights.

But all this doesn’t mean having to deprive yourself of delicious foods.

Our eating plans provide a range of restaurant worthy breakfasts, not to mention the recipes that are shared via our online healthy eating community which you gain access to with our plans.

Want to finally get the missing piece to the body shape up puzzle? Then don’t miss signing up to our Summer Body Beautiful Camp (starts July 2nd) by June 23rd which entitles you to our diet plan, online healthy eating group and assessments worth over £30.
