You know what they say—if you fail to plan, you’re planning to fail. “Get some Tupperware, go to Sam’s Club or Costco and plan your meals in bulk,” recommends Quince. “Make seven days worth of meals at one time and put some in the fridge and some in the freezer. Now you have something you can quickly take with you.”
For optimal performance, Quince recommends protein before and after a workout. “A lean turkey sandwich or almonds are great before a workout,” he says. After your cool down, you should load up on more protein. “Immediately put protein in your body post-workout. You want to sustain that muscle.”
If you’re lacking motivation to workout on your own, grab a gal pal and sweat it out together. “The best thing to do is grab someone and say, ‘Hey let’s meet tomorrow at 7am, bring your sneakers, we’re going for a walk.’ Make it a buddy system with your friends or get your coworkers together,” advises Quince.
Ladies, let’s be honest —it’s time to start choosing our health over our hair. Instead of letting a fresh hairstyle keep you from working out, make your fitness goals your top priority. “Women love their hair and they will use it as an excuse,” says Quince. “That’s why I love Nicole Ari Parker’s Save Your Do wrap.”
Using a juicer is a great way to squeeze in extra nutrients in your diet which will help you stay fuller longer and cut back on high-sugar, processed, store-bought beverages. “I’m a big fan of juicing,” says Quince. “Juicing takes away all of the fiber so all you’re drinking is the good stuff. It can be a lot of work, but it’s worth it.”
If you thought you needed a pricey gym or bootcamp membership in order to lose weight, guess again. “I’ve transformed bodies with no weights at all. The most inexpensive way to start a fitness routine is to by some sneakers and just go for a walk. You don’t need to spend a lot of money,” says Quince.
