Many people will try everything at first, and through a trial and error approach, they attempt to make the best possible nutrition plan that works best for them.

It will help you plan your tailor-made nutrition plan so that you are always ready and prepared.
We will also go into the controversial subject of nutrition. If you take a quick look at our website (www.dbfitnesschallenge.com), you will soon find out that we do not sell any nutritional supplements. This helps us be brutally honest about different products and show you which ones you actually need and which ones do not live up to their claims.
For far too long, people have ignored nutrition, even though awareness on healthy-eating is at an all time-high. From my experience, this lack of trying is derived from lack of knowledge. The answers found in these blogs will help you improve your knowledge, and whilst it is not our intention to replace a qualified nutritionist, we can help guide you in the right direction to achieve your goals. Regardless of whether you want to lose weight, gain weight, or improve your performance in your chosen sport, these blogs will guide you in every step of the way.
