  1. Besides using a weekly pill box, you can try placing your vitamins and supplements next to something you see daily (i.e. toothbrush, coffee maker, kitchen table, or nightstand). Hope this helps! =)
  2. Basically, avoid processed food and sugary drinks (including fruit juice), and eat whole foods. Instead of white rice, pasta, and bread, eat brown rice or substitute for cauliflower rice. As for cholesterol, avoid bad fats like butter, but there is good fats like avocado and egg yolks that can be eaten in moderation. Your body needs cholesterol and the food in good fats helps increase in good cholesterol (HDL). In general, working out at least 3 times a week and making sure you get enough sleep every night helps keeps your cholesterol and blood sugar in check.
  3. It is possible to loose fat AND not compromise performance/strength. The key is make sure you are getting enough proteins and not loose the weight too fast (no more than 0.5-1lbs per week). The key is to start cutting out fat slowly, if your weight is not going down, then start decreasing your carbs, but never cut down your protein intake. Fill up with proteins and veggies. I was about to loose ~10 lbs while still making strength gains following this principle through the RP diet.
  4. Don't beat yourself up over it. It is harder said than done, I know. When I get off track, I try to pick up from where I left off. If you can't do that because of stress and life is happening, then ease back into it. Instead of eating clean the whole week, try 2-3 days a week first. Instead of trying to do everything (good eating habits AND working out), how about just focus on your eating habits first and give the gym a break until you are back on track mentally and emotionally. Prioritize getting enough rest/sleep and eating well first because working out can be stressful for you
