If you are in any way concerned if this plan is for you or are experiencing anything abnormal, please contact your local physician for a professional opinion.

No, you do not have to strictly count calories. Instead, we have included different nutritional challenges, that help you become aware of your eating habits, like secret snacks or sugar amounts you might not be aware of. We believe this is a more natural way to become mindful of our eating habits than counting calories. If you are prone to over- or under-consuming food we encourage you to pay more attention to your portion sizes and adapt them accordingly.

What is the price and availability of the foods in the nutrition guide?

Most ingredients are inexpensive that you can find in any supermarket. For some, like chia seeds, you might have to go to an ecological store. We also love to check out markets and buy seasonal products right from the farmers.

Need input.

How important are the runs (is this LISS or HIIT)?

This depends on your personal starting point and body goal. If you want to loose weight, cardio exercise is extremely important as it will burn fat and show the muscles/definition you have worked so hard on during the workout sessions. If you want to build up muscle mass, running is not that important. However, cardio exercise is key to a healthy heart and body and will significantly improve your overall workout performance.
