"It’s not about starvation diets," he says, "it’s about eating protein, a lot of vegetables, colourful foods, and foods that are dense in nutrition, like greens." Wong also taught Lawrence, "why you need to have healthy carbohydrates, and why it’s not good to have processed foods and refined sugar." One thing Wong advocates is eating all your proteins at breakfast and lunch, saying that this will help keep you feeling full all day, reducing your urge to snack. When you eat proteins at night, your body will go into high gear trying to digest them which can prevent you from getting enough sleep. Sleep, being a key component in weight loss.

When it comes to exercise, Wong believes that you should "only exercise to what your body allows you to." He believes that working out should make you feel better and happier, it shouldn't make you feel worse. "If you’re stressed at work, and had planned to do an exercise class that is high intensity, your body might not be resilient enough to cope with it," he explains.
Wong's training programs are built around helping his clients find the exercises that work best for them. There is a time and place for going all out, and there is a time and place for gentle exercise. Listen to your body and balance your high intensity workouts with things like yoga, Pilates, and meditation.
He does not believe that any one plan will work for everyone, saying, "my most important advice is that everyone should learn to be their own nutritionist, and their own trainer."
We are sure that the majority of you are not training to star in an X-Men movie but you can easily apply many of these principles to your own life. Give yourself room to enjoy dinning out or your favourite treats, but make sure that the majority of the time, you are eating meals that consist of proteins, healthy fats, whole grains, and whole, fresh, fruits and vegetables. It is important to move your body everyday, but it isn't necessary to move your body in the same way everyday. If you feel strong and jazzed up, bust out your killer HIIT workout, if you are a feeling tired or run down, it is okay to skip the HIIT for a restorative yoga practice. The exercises that are right for you are the exercises that you will do. Move your body every day, but listen to what it is looking for.
Do these sound like practices you can adopt in your life?
