FUEL SMART WEEKLY ELEMENTS
WEEK 1: Goal setting and calories
Is calorie counting an effective way to lose weight? We address the myth and set ourselves SMARTER goals to provide a focus for the programme.
WEEK 2: Detoxification
We tend to think of a detox as a diet, but in fact its happening 24/7. We will take a look at its importance, what to look out for and what foods we should get into our diet.
WEEK 3: Fats and Carboyhdrates
The balance of carbs and fats can have an affect on your sporting performances. We will look at the debates and benefits of Low Carb-High Fat vs Low Fat-High Carb diets.
WEEK 4: Blood Sugar Regulation and Carbohydrates
Controlling your blood sugar levels will improve your energy and mood and you will be able to control your body composition a lot easier. We will look into carb dominant foods and tips to regulate your sugar levels.
WEEK 5: Fats
To improve our body composition we can't simply cut fat out our diets, they are fundamentally important. We will look into how to get a balanced, good quality source of fat into your diet and how your body uses fats during exercise.
WEEK 6: Hormones and Stress Management
Eating, sleeping, training and stress patterns heavily affect our hormones. We will look into foods and exercise types that can help balance our hormone levels and improve our stress management.
WEEK 7: Proteins
Protein provides a small provision of energy but mainly is a recovery nutrient. This week will look into why proteins are important, how much we need in our diets and protein sources.
WEEK 8: Mindfulness
Most of our behaviours in life become habitual or addictive and it is up to you alone to be accountable. We'll address mindful eating and provide you with recommendations, tips and an exercise to try.

"Its not a short term diet. Its a long term lifestyle change."
In the space of 10 weeks my approach to food, health and my general well being has completely changed....for the better! Togo has helped build my confidence when it comes to understanding what foods are good and bad and the impact it can have on my performance. It has really opened my mind to trying new things!
Recently attended the Nutrition Workshop run by Togo. It was brilliantly presented, extremely informative and very simple to understand. I left with a far greater understanding of what an important role nutrition plays, not just in training and competing, but day to day life as well. Togo and Leigh are great examples too of how a holistic approach to nutrition can benefit in so many different ways.
Since starting at Njinga my body has been transformed losing 20kgs, improving my FTP by over 60 watts and achieving an all time peak power of 1949 watts. My enjoyment, my ability, my fitness and my whole cycling world has been transformed. It has made me leaner, faster, happier, more relaxed and less stressed.
