Omega 3's are healthy fats and due to the fact I am reducing my carbohydrates by around 20%, upping my Fat content is a great way to ensure I maintain enough calories throughout the day. Omega 3, also has huge health benefits including increased concentration and brain function. Adding good fats to my Nutrition will allow my body to loose more fat over the 14 day period.
The Premium Plus capsules contains the equivalent of 2.5 - 3 kg of Fresh, raw and ripe fruits, vehetables and berries.

Day 2 Summary: Todays training sessions went really well. I found it easier doing two sessions(morning and evening), compared to Day 1 where we did a GBC session immediately followed by a CrossFiot style Workout. With the intensity of my training and the fast metabolism I naturally have, I am already feeling leaner and tighter. The BCAA's post workout certainly feel like they helped today, so I will continue to take these morning and evening as well as pre / post workout. I was in bed at a much better time today and with the ammount of training I am doing, I realise that sleep is vital for recovery. Bring on Day 3.
