1 Guilt should never be the mo­ti­va­tion to get healthy be­cause guilt wears off. Your de­ci­sion should be be­cause you want to feel good and healthy and live long for loved ones.

Why? “If you are al­ready work­ing out five days a week and you are not see­ing re­sults fast enough, then the prob­lem is your food. When I rec­om­mend a meal plan for some­one, this meal plan only gives the client the full ben­e­fit of the work­out that they are al­ready do­ing.”
