I’m just finishing up a quick in-and-out trip to New York City, where I had lunch meeting with John Romaniello and then a few other business partners (non-fitness related) on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning.

I also snuck in a big walk around Central Park, and then hit an upper body meathead workout with my friend Simon Black – he’s like a secret agent or something – at a New York Sports Club near Central Park.

Friday was a true cheat day, as Roman and I hit a BBQ joint where I just “had to try” the fried chicken and waffles. Good times. But I planned for that. And on Saturday I was right back on track.

And today I’ll join you in doing the 3 things we all MUST do for our diets.

1 – Plan
2 – Shop
3 – Prepare

Every single person who loses 10 pounds, 25 pounds, or even over 34 pounds in 12 weeks with Turbulence Training does these 3 things with their diet.

First, they plan ahead.

They identify the obstacles that are going to come up this week (such as business trips, work meetings, soccer practices with the kids and no time to make dinner) and they plan ahead to make sure healthy meals are pre-made.

And when you’re home, you plan ahead to have the ingredients for incredible fat loss meals like these ones from Prograde, a company I’ve partnered with to bring you the best nutrition information.

You get 197 recipes for under $5. That’s 2.5 cents per recipe. And these meals aren’t boring or bland, and they don’t require crazy, fancy ingredients. Even ol’ Bally the Dog could make these meals.

Second, that brings us to the shopping part.

Now that you know what you need for your meals in the week ahead, that makes the shopping easy. Get the best quality ingredients you can afford – checking out farmer’s markets for deals on fresh food.

Finally, bring home the ingredients and “batch-prepare” as many of the meals for the week ahead as you possibly can make.

Wash and cut up fruits and vegetables and place them on the most visible shelf in your fridge. Research shows this encourages you to eat more of them.

Simple steps – 1, 2, 3 – will help you lose fat without needing to make dramatic changes. And this recipe book shows you how to enjoy delicious meals that help you lose fat.

=> 197 recipes for fat loss meals

Follow this simple plan and you’ll look better, feel better, eat better, and have 10x’s more energy for your family, work, and fun.

Back with some really cool workouts tomorrow,

PS – What about protein powders?

I’m not huge into using powders, but when I do use protein, I like this brand

=> If you use protein, get this protein powder

It’s the brand I buy for my mom, too.
