I used to hate giving people negative feedback because I was so worried about hurting their feelings. I would always think to myself, I’d rather bare with feeling a little uncomfortable or unhappy rather than make someone feel bad about themselves or I would justify it in my head to just talk myself out of it & tell myself not make a big deal out of “small things”.. but after a lot of life experiences and a LOT of reflection I’ve realized that staying silent has very often been the main reason I’ve ever wanted to distance myself from people or even completely end relationships. All those small things turn into a huge mountain! I had my reasons for thinking that way which I finally realized after working with a hypnotherapist (I will definitely fill you guys in on that later one day) but after finally realizing, keeping my feelings to myself only made me feel farther away from the people I cared about and it did absolutely the opposite of what I intended to do in the first place which was to protect their feelings. I’ve realized now it’s SO important to express yourself & let people know how you feel if you want to keep them close to you. Find the right way to communicate it and the right time, the people who truly care would want to know Don’t stay silent with the ones you love

What's the secret to achieving your physique goals? The hard truth…. There is no quick fix! To grow you need to eat more, eat more of the right foods and make sure that you don’t overdo it. The same goes for fat loss. You either need to eat less, change the quality of your food, alter the macronutrient composition (carbs, proteins, fats) of the foods you eat, along with making sure you don’t put yourself in an excessive calorie deficit for too long. Eat too much – you get fat. Eat too little ­- you mess up your metabolism and live a miserable existence. – I’m not a big fan of sensible food shops. I’m not a big fan of cooking either. I have @beast_mode_nutrition_dxb handle the bulk of my meals during weekdays which is honestly a huge relief! I don't have to panic about my next meal or binging on a greasy midnight takeaway. On weekends, I prep my meals a day in advance and do it the night before, usually taking me around 15­-20 minutes. I'm not exactly chef Ramsay in the kitchen but I know how to string together a decent meal. If you are serious about achieving your goals you have to place just as much importance on your nutrition as you do with your training. #NoExcuses Get it done! – #StrongAsFulat #EasyMealPrep #StayOnTrack #Beastmodenutritiondubai
