“The thing I find most interesting about diet plans is that no two people are exactly the same.

Some people like to be very rigid in their approach, eating the same meals day in and day out until their goal is reached, while others work better with more flexibility and freedom. The good news is there are many different ways to get in great shape!

When we really get down to it, if you are in a calorie deficit and eating enough protein per day to build muscle you will see fantastic results. That’s what The Happy Diet is all about. Once you have set your targets for both calories and protein, you have the freedom of choice to fill your diet with foods you love!”


How It Works

Some people like to track every aspect of their diet, but others absolutely hate it.

This nutrition plan is made for the latter.

You see, for many people it’s the prospect of overhauling their nutrition and tracking every little thing which stops them from ever getting started, and the bleak reality of being told that their favourite foods are no longer allowed only serves to increase the likelihood of them quitting without reaching their goals.

So what if I told you it doesn’t have to be that way?

No really… because it doesn’t! I designed The Happy Diet back in 2016 specifically for people who hate following rigid diet plans. This program gets you doing the absolute basics (great for forming healthy eating habits if you’re new to the gym) and will help you achieve high quality results – without ever telling you what you can or cannot do!

Here’s how it works:

  • Setting Your Calorie Target
  • How Much Protein Do You Need?
  • The Freedoim Of Choice
  • The Best Apps For Tracking Your Nutrition
  • How To Make Changes To Increase Results

Setting Your Calorie Target

Regardless of our food preferences, weight loss is ultimately achieved by a calorie deficit.

So you might have a colleague who enjoys a ketogenic diet, a friend who follows the latest celebrity diets, and a sister who keeps it low carb, and even though many of things on their chosen diets “do’s & dont’s” list will contradict each other, the net result behind their success is the same mechanism – a calorie deficit. (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7)

This means you can still reach your goals even if you’ve failed on other diets, because all you have to do is find a way to get your body into a calorie deficit!

That’s pretty much the foundation of The Happy Diet – I won’t be restricting certain foods, I won’t be getting you to track every little detail, no macronutrients are blocked off, you can eat at any time of the day which works best for you, and it’s as simple as staying within your calorie budget.
