‘I don’t believe in counting calories’
He’s trained Rosie H-W and Victoria’s Secret girls, so we asked Clean & Lean founder James Duigan for advice…
‘Your body is crying out to be treated well. As soon as you start to relax and forgive yourself, your body will transform so quickly. The most powerful transformation is in your mind.’
Try: Five minutes of meditation pre-workout.
‘Compound movements are the key: the more muscles you use, the more fat you’ll burn.’
Try: Squats or lunges with a press. You don’t even need a bar – instead, try holding a full water bottle or some books.
‘You should be looking at getting protein, fats and complex carbs into your system. I never count calories; I don’t think that’s right. I wouldn’t recommend refined white flour, though. Be smart with the carbs you choose and bear in mind everyone is as different inside, biochemically, as they are on the outside. Listen to yourself.’ Try: A breakfast of fruit with yogurt and nuts soaked in milk, followed by a lunch of avocado with lots of brightly coloured veg with some added lamb for protein, washed down with a kale juice. And dinner? Bolognese with brown rice, steamed broccoli and pesto.
