Welcome to Week 1 of The Foundation.
The Foundation is where you’ll learn the truth about training and nutrition — what works and why it works.
Understanding why we’re asking you to do something is crucial if you want to get head-turning results from TeamTEG. If you don’t know why then you’ll end up confused and doubting the approach.
And you know what happens then?
Doubting the approach at best leads to lack of consistency (and at worst, giving up altogether). Either way, that’s not what you want to do if you’re serious about flattening your stomach and toning your thighs!
Plus, if you don’t finally learn the truth, you’ll still be confused about diet and training and won’t know what to do after TeamTEG.
We want this to be the LAST EVER fat-loss product you ever need, and studying The Foundation is your key to success in that area — getting in shape and knowing how to maintain it FOREVER.
What you probably want to know now is how does The Foundation work?
Well, each week you’ll be granted access to a new set of powerful fitness knowledge within The Foundation. Each week will build on the previous week’s knowledge until eventually you’ll literally know everything there is to know about the “art and science” of burning body fat.
It will be a combination of videos and the good old-fashioned written word to make sure you “get it” no matter what.
You can choose how to “digest” the content — you can read it all in one go if you’re a bit of a machine, or you can do it bit by bit if you find learning it all in one hit a little overwhelming.
Oh, and we’ll also email you throughout the week with each of the steps that you need to complete for that week’s Foundation knowledge-building so even if you forget to check out The Foundation online you won’t miss out.
So now you get how this works, let’s get stuck into the meat of this week’s must-have knowledge…[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
So yes… Counting calories IS the #1 most important thing if you want to lose weight. FACT.
(Don’t you just love it when someone says something, then says FACT!)
But unfortunately it’s not that easy (it never is, is it!?)…
It’s also important that the majority of your diet comes from healthy foods.
Well it’s actually pretty simple.
As the video above explains, unhealthy processed foods contain toxic ingredients and these need to be processed by the liver.
And why do we care about that?
Well, the liver also BREAKS DOWN FAT… and if it’s busy dealing with all those unhealthy processed foods it CAN’T BURN FAT.
Yes, that’s right. Eat more junk and you’ll have a harder time breaking down fat.
But what are “healthy” foods?
Well, put simply, “healthy” foods are single-ingredient foods. AKA foods with JUST ONE INGREDIENT.
So… if a food has a long ingredients list its far less likely to be healthy (we’ll get on to how to spot “bad” ingredients in the coming weeks).
We generally recommend 80% of your diet comes from healthy single-ingredient foods.
The rest of your diet can come from any other foods (although they should still fit your nutrition targets) — if these are only eaten in moderation they will not significantly impact your results.
We’ll go over exactly how to manage eating “healthy” and how you can still incorporate your favourite treat foods like ice cream, cookies and chocolate in the 1-80 rule in the coming weeks.
However, if you struggle with working out what foods are actually healthy, we have something to make it REALLY easy!
Read on to find out about “The Manual” and how you can have it with you at all times to make spotting good and bad foods a piece of cake…[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
We understand that this can be a steep learning curve, so if you’re finding it hard to keep up, don’t worry!
We have put together an easy-access manual which you can download to your phone and look anything up at any time (so you can have your questions answered whenever or wherever you are).
This includes a definitive list of “Foods to Eat and Avoid” if you want to lose weight and tone up, nearly 50 delicious recipes and meal ideas, as well as a swipe-and-steal shopping list which you can use to make sure your foods choices are on point

And that is…[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
Step 3. Why Counting Calories Blows “Eating Healthy” Out The Water When It Comes to Blitzing Body Fat
Counting calories sounds like a chore, right?
But ask yourself this quick question:
Do you want to get that attention-grabbing dream body in 4 months or 4 years?
We’re guessing you don’t want to drag out the process over 4 long years! You probably have a holiday, a wedding or another special event coming up (and you don’t get any younger) so you don’t have time to delay.
So you want results and you want them as fast as possible — we all do!
Well, there is only one guaranteed way to get results fast and that way involves counting calories.
Put simply, your body responds to HOW MUCH you eat, much more than WHAT you eat (although what you eat is still important).
If you want to ditch the belly fat and bingo wings, you’re going to need to lose fat and that can only be done one way — eating the RIGHT amount of calories FOR YOU.
Eat too much -> Put on weight
Eat too little -> Stall your metabolism and stop losing weight
It’s like walking a calorie-counting tightrope — stray too far either side and you won’t make it to your goal.
But luckily for you, we’ve worked out your perfect fat-burning, body-toning, slimming & sexifying calories based on your initial questionnaire.
So all you need to do is track your calories and hit your goals and you’ll start blitzing body fat from day 1. Easy![/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]
So now you’ve learned about tracking calories and what foods to eat, but now you might be wondering when’s the best time to eat those calories and how many to eat in each meal.
Well… Here’s the good news for you:
It doesn’t really matter!
The MOST important thing is TOTAL calories eaten — hitting your calorie targets consistently.
^^ This is the number one thing that will determine whether you get head-turning results.
How many meals you eat, when you eat them and how big they are… none of that really matters!
So, our advice: do whatever suits you!
(Although remember that training on a full stomach isn’t fun, so I’d avoid eating a meal 1-2 hours before any workout)
But of course, we’re not just going to leave it at that. We’ve got a couple of “real-world” examples below to help give you some ideas (based on a diet of 2100 kcal per day):
1. If you only have one lunch break at work and no time to eat snacks, perhaps you’ll choose to split your calories up like this:
- Breakfast: 700 kcal
- Lunch: 700 kcal
- Dinner: 700 kcal
2. If you’re finding 3 meals a day too much, maybe add in two smaller snacks, like this:
- Breakfast: 500 kcal
- Morning snack: 300 kcal
- Lunch: 500 kcal
- Afternoon snack: 300 kcal
- Dinner: 500 kcal
3. Or if you train first thing in the morning (absolutely fine, by the way), then maybe you’ll want a bigger breakfast:
- Breakfast: 700 kcal
- Morning snack: 200 kcal
- Lunch: 500 kcal
- Afternoon snack: 200 kcal
- Dinner: 500 kcal
Basically, there’s a million different ways to split up your calories and no one way is better than another. Start with a format that you think will suit your lifestyle and then adapt it as you progress along your journey.[/fusion_text][separator style_type=”single” top_margin=”15″ bottom_margin=”20″ sep_color=”” border_size=”” icon=”” icon_circle=”” icon_circle_color=”” width=”” alignment=”center” class=”” id=””][fusion_text]So that’s it for this week!
