What's going in fellas! I started the 3 week program this morning, then a 3 mile run after. My body typically responds well and fairly quickly to workout routines.

Can anyone recommend foods I should start eating and what I should stay away from? I know a good diet is a huge component in maintaining great fitness.

I'm a former professional dancer and I used to rely on my dance schedule to keep my body tight. Those days are gone. Let's work!

Lean chicken, lean meats, boiled eggs, always pair these with veggies of possible. Low glycemic choices for carbs. Sweet potatoes, small portions of steel cut oats, apples, and these are just a few. Fats- unsalted nuts like walnuts, almonds, pecans, avocado, sardines are a favorite of mine if they're the healthier more expensive brand. Your fat intake should be 30% or so. Fruits- I like berries and apples these you can portion out to 3-4 servings a day, higher glycemic fruit for immediate post workout like half a banana. Tons of water. Never go 2 hours before a workout without...

No problem! Nutrition is key and ultimately the number one key before fitness. Keep it clean, complex carbs, lean proteins, healthy fats and if you like to eat a lot and cook I highly recommend crock potting meals. There are a lot of healthy crock pot recipes. 

Remember as well that a car if going 0-60 mph takes a lot more fuel than a car staying at 35 mph. The same can be seen with carbs and fats. Carbohydrates are the number one source of fuel for the body and when you're lifting heavy or performing more intense anaerobic exercises, your body will utilize the glycogen stores (carb storage) in your body before using fats for fuel. Longer cardio sessions utilize fats more than carbohydrates for fuel. On days where I'm planning more cardio HIIT, I keep my carbs a little lower and keep the healthy fats but for heavy lifting days I'll go for more complex carbs because that's what my body will utilize for fuel.

No one can recommend you anything worthwhile without knowing your goals.

So what are the goals you have in mind?
