Contrary to what you might think/or may have heard, taking pills and drinking caffeinated drinks are not the best way to get energised and stay energised.
What you really need are slow release foods, full of protein and healthy fats for your body to break down.

We’re talking about your immune system. The worst thing about getting sick is having to wait to get back into your regular work routine.
Now, while there isn’t much you can do to prevent getting sick, you can make your body more resistant to it.

Fights are always won by the guy or girl with the greatest muscles. While the gym is great, it’s no match for a diet lacking in vital nutrients.
Protein and calcium are key for strong bones and well-recovered muscle.
