    Course Content

    • Welcome To the Course & What You Will Learn  

    Everyone’s body is different and will react differently to special workouts and diets. Your tutor will only recommend what is scientifically proven to work.

    • Get to Know Your Instructor 

    This is a master class that will teach you everything you need to know about meal planning, dieting for weight loss, dieting for muscle gain and how you can improve your meal system with the right foods and vitamins.

    • Meal Planning Explained 

    When it comes to meal planning and nutrition your goals might be to lose weight, to gain weight, to lose fat or to gain muscle or to simply live a healthy life. Whatever your goals may be this program is meant to teach you how to reach your goals and show you what strategies and principles are proven to work.

    • Calories Explained 1455

    Calories are a form of energy measurement. When you eat food, you consume the energy that is stored within the food. Energy can be stored for later use as glycogen or fat.

    • Micronutrients Introduction 

    Micronutrients are things like vitamins and minerals that you only need in tiny amounts. People who work out regularly, need more micronutrients than the average person.

    • Protein Explained 

    Protein is important for building active muscle fibres after exercise, but it has thousands of other essential roles in the body.

    • How much protein do you need to consume per day?               

    There is no one size fits all answer here. Your ideal protein intake will depend on factors such as weight, muscle mass and fitness goals.

    • Fats explained

    Your body needs fatty acids to survive and cannot produce them from other foods. Fat is needed to regulate hormone production, keep your skin and hair healthy, and absorb fat-soluble vitamins.

    • How Much Fat Should You Eat Per Day?

    Roughly 15 to 20% of your daily calories should come from fats. You should favour monounsaturated fats and polyunsaturated fats.

    • Carbohydrates Explained 

    Carbs are the bodies preferred energy source. Your body breaks carbs down into glucose, which is transported throughout the body to provide energy. 

    • Macronutrients Explained

    Macronutrients are the three main nutrients your body needs to survive, these are protein, carbohydrates, and dietary fat.

    • The Different Types of carbs

    There are three types of carbs, Monosaccharides which are simple, Disaccharides which are also simple, and Polysaccharides which are complex.

    • How Many Carbs should you eat per day?

    The optimal intake depends on a variety of factors but even without knowing your exact measurements we can still narrow in on a range using only your body weight and training intensity.

    • Meal Timing Intro

    Meal timing has its place, but its importance is often overestimated by beginners. Calorie balance and macronutrient amounts are much more powerful and important than mealtime.

    • Protein Timing

    If you meet your daily calorie and nutritional requirements through your normal diet you do not have to drink a protein shake before or after your workout.

    • Carbohydrate Timing          

    Eating carbs before your workout provides your muscles with additional fuel for your training, which will indirectly affect your muscle growth.

    • Fat Timing      

    The only time you should avoid fats is right before your workout since fat slows down the digestion of both carbs and proteins.

    • Pre-Workout Meal 

    Eat a balanced meal with 0.2-0.25g/lbs of your target body weight (for both carbs and protein) up to one hour before your workout.

    • Post Workout Meal             

    The post-workout meal is meant to supply your body with everything it needs to repair the muscle tissue.

    • What About the Anabolic Window?

    The idea of the anabolic window is that you have a specific window of time after your workout to eat food and if you do this, your muscle growth is accelerated.

    • Food Composition Introduction 

    Food composition refers to the individual foods that you eat and their given nutrition. It is a lot less important than people think.

    • Protein Composition     

    Protein quality can be measured in a variety of ways. Firstly, bioavailability which is what percentage of protein that you consume is absorbed into the bloodstream. Secondly, how much of the protein is composed of essential amino acids.

    • Carbohydrate Composition

    Just like protein composition, carbohydrate composition can refer to several concepts. The most common is the glycaemic index.

    • Fat Composition 

    Consuming certain types of fats and staying away from others will make a difference in your overall health. Choose foods like avocado, nuts, and olive oil.

    • Top 3 Beginner Supplements  

    Supplements can never replace proper diet planning and nutrition, but they can help you reach your fitness goals faster.

    • How to Use Protein Powder When, How Much & With What

    Consuming enough protein every day can be tricky, especially when you do not have time to prepare high protein meals all the time.

    • How to Use Creatine When, How Much & With What 

    Creatine helps supply the muscle cells with energy during high-intensity, short-duration exercise.

    • Other Supplements to consider

    Most fat burners will slightly increase your metabolism through a few key ingredients: caffeine, synephrine, green tea extract, naringenin and hesperidin.

    • How To Determine Your Optimal Calorie Intake          

    You will learn how to calculate your Total Daily Energy expenditure which is the number of calories that your body burns in one day.

    • How to Track Calories  

    You will need three things: food, a calorie tracker app, and a kitchen scale to ensure that your calorie and macro counting is sufficiently accurate.

    • Determining Protein Intake 

    Your optimal protein intake is about 0.8g to 1.0g per pound of body weight per day. A 180lb male would choose an average intake of between 145g and 180g of protein per day.

    • Determining Fat Intake

    For our 180lb male, he should intake between 45g and 60g of fat per day. That is between 390 to 520 calories.

    • What About the Remaining Calories?

    For our 180lb man, you want to take in around 2600 calories to maintain weight. Carbs or fat are usually the best options to fill the remaining calories.

    • Determining Meal Structure

    Now that we have determined how many calories, proteins, fats, and carbs we should eat every day, we have to come up with a meal structure.

    • Quality Protein Sources

    Now that you have set up your meal structure, find out what foods are the best quality sources of protein.

    • Quality Carbs Sources

    As for quality carbohydrates, the best sources are unprocessed whole foods like fresh fruits, legumes, whole grains, and many vegetables.

    • Quality Sources of Fat

    Consuming quality fat can actually be pretty easy and delicious at the same time. Here are some high-fat foods that are incredibly healthy and delicious.

    • Adjusting Your Diet for Weight Gain          

    Bodybuilders and athletes work in two phases called bulking and cutting. First, you focus on building strength and size while consuming more calories than you burn throughout the day and then you try to get rid of any extra fat by cutting calories while maintaining lean muscle mass.

    • Adjusting Your Diet for Weight Loss 

    Let us look at the perfect cutting diet. The most important thing you need to understand is that there is a big difference between losing weight and losing body fat.

    • Cheat Days and Cheat Meals 

    80-90% of your diet should come from “clean” and healthy foods. 10-20% can come from whatever foods you like as long as it fits your total daily calories and proteins, carbs, and fats.

    • Post Workout Shake

    You will notice a lot of debate online around what makes the perfect post-workout shake. Unfortunately, there are a lot of “bro-science” and myths out there so let’s take a look at some science-based facts.

    • Healthy Dieting Intro          

    This section will focus on healthy dieting which consists of understanding and designing your diet not just in the context of fitness but also overall health and wellbeing.

    • Dieting myth #1 Carbs are bad for you                      

    Carbs can cause insulin insensitivity, but only in people with prediabetes that overeat high sugar carbs. If you do not exercise and your diet consists mostly of these types of carbs then they will negatively impact your health.

    • Dieting Myth #2 Fat is bad for you        

    Cutting all fat from your diet can be dangerous since your body needs it for hormone production. Many low-fat products contain more calories than their normal counterparts.

    • Dieting Myth #3 Protein is bad for you   

    Is eating too much protein bad for your kidneys? Healthy adults who exercise have no problems with consuming high amounts of protein.

    • Dieting Myth #5 Avoid Salt at All Cost      

    Salt (sodium) is an essential mineral; its consumption is critical to our health. The average person, however, consumes double the recommended intake.

    • Dieting Myth #6 Eat several small meals throughout the day to lose weight

    Eating frequently may have benefits for some people, but it is incorrect that this affects the number of calories we burn.

    • Dieting Myth #7 Diet Foods Will Lead to Weight Loss             

    Low-fat and low carb does not always mean low calories. Studies have shown that participants ate up to 50 per cent more of foods that the researchers falsely labelled “low-fat” than they did of the same foods with real labels.

    • Dieting Myth #8 Red Meat Always Causes Cancer          

    Almost everything we eat has the potential to be involved in cancer development. Current evidence suggests that red meat can pose a cancer risk for people with poor diets and lifestyle choices.

    • Common Diets Intro            

    The dieting industry is like fashion in that there are always some trends everyone seems to follow. Sometimes these diet trends make sense but often they are just fads that will not stand the test of time.

    • Gluten-Free Diet Explained  

    Gluten is a naturally occurring composite of two proteins (gliadin and glutenin) that are mostly found in rye, wheat, and barley products.

    • Paleo Diet Explained           

    This means eating the same foods our hunter-gather ancestors supposedly ate (fruits, vegetables, meats, seafood, and nuts). Avoid processed foods, dairy products, potatoes, and grains.

    • Low Carb Diet Explained

    If you are completely sedentary it makes sense to cut carbs as you do not need the energy. Also, people who consume primarily simple carbs will benefit from eating less of them.

    • Intermittent Fasting Explained 

    Intermittent fasting has you fast for 16 hours and eat for 8 hours. Studies have found no significant benefits related to body composition, fat loss, insulin sensitivity or hormones.

    • Vegan Diet Explained         

    Vegans in addition to being vegetarians do not consume animal products and by-products. It is possible to build muscle on a vegan diet, but it is more difficult.  

    • Micronutrients Introduction  

    Micronutrients are things like vitamins and minerals that we only need in tiny amounts. A healthy diet will most likely provide you with enough micronutrients. Active people who exercise regularly need more than the average person.

    • Vitamin A 

    Vitamin A is a fat-soluble vitamin needed to maintain eyesight and prevent night blindness. It improves the immune system, helps with fat storage, and protects against infections.

    • Vitamin B 

    Vitamin B is essential for the breakdown of carbohydrates into glucose, the breakdown of fats and proteins, and muscle tone in the stomach and intestinal tract.

    • Vitamin C 

    Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant needed for many metabolic functions, including new tissue growth and repair. It helps to produce anti-stress hormones and aids to heal wounds and burns.

    • Vitamin D    

    Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin needed for the growth development and maintenance of bones and teeth, regulating heartbeat, and protects against muscle weakness.

    • Vitamin E

    Vitamin E is a fat-soluble vitamin with several health benefits such as the effective preservation of foods, prevention of diseases such as cancer and diabetes, promotion of a healthy nervous system, protection against heart disease, and protection for the eyes.

    • Vitamin K

    Vitamin K is needed for blood clotting, growing and repairing bones, and conversion of glucose into glycogen.

    • Calcium

    Calcium supports muscle function, transmits nerve impulses, helps cells to communicate, and is involved in the release of certain hormones.

    • Magnesium

    Magnesium is necessary for protein synthesis, muscle and nerve function, blood glucose control, blood pressure regulation, and energy production.

    • Phosphorus 

    Phosphorus is found in the bones, cell membranes and energy molecules, it is needed for tissue growth and is regularly lost through sweat and urine.

    • Potassium 

    Potassium is necessary for muscle contraction, nerve impulses, protein synthesis, transferring nutrients through cell membranes, breaking down carbs, and maintaining a regular heart rhythm.

    • Sodium

    Sodium is necessary for nerve signalling, muscle contraction, fluid balance, and the transferring of nutrients through cell membranes.

    • Copper 

    Copper is necessary for the production and function of red blood cells, maintaining blood vessels, maintaining nerves, and maintaining the immune system.

    • Iron 

    Iron is an important mineral involved in various bodily functions, including the transport of oxygen in the blood.

    • Zinc               

    Zinc is necessary for the immune system, cell division, cell growth, wound healing, breaking down carbohydrates, and for senses of smell and taste.

    • 6.2 Sequence Activities

    It is important to logically arrange the activities on a timeline and identify the dependencies that exist between them.

    • 6.3 Estimating Activity Durations

    This process estimates the amount of time taken by each activity to complete given the previous prerequisite’s activities are in place.

    • 6.4 Develop Schedule Process 

    This is an important process because it produces a key deliverable on the project called the project schedule.

    • 6.5 Critical Path Method

    You will learn about a scheduled path diagram for the Critical Path Method.

    • 6.6 Compressing Schedule: Crashing and Fast-tracking     

    Another technique that is used to modify the project schedule, is used to shorten the project schedule without changing the project scope. This is schedule compression.

    • 6.7 Timeline View of Project Documents

    At this point, we now have all the elements that answer the question of at what point in time should things be done on the project.  

    • 6.8 Microsoft Project – Entering Activities and Duration 

    We will now start entering all the information we collected about the project activities into the Microsoft Project application.

    • 6.9 Microsoft Project – Sequencing Activities & Creating Gantt Chart

    From the sequence diagrams that we constructed earlier, we can determine the order of project activities.

    • 6.10 Microsoft Project – The Project Schedule

    The last step is to create the project schedule itself. This is automatically constructed in Microsoft Project once all the activities that define the entire scope of the project are entered into it.

    • 7.1 Estimated Costs 

    These are the Cost Management, Quality Management, Resource Management, and Risk Management knowledge areas.  

    • 7.2 Determined Budget

    We can determine the budget by aggregating the costs of all the activities that we determined in the previous process of estimation.

    • 7.3 Timeline View of Project Documents

    At this point, we have the project budget ready so we now know how much money it will take to work on this project.

    • 7.4 Estimate Activity Resources

    We can now determine the number of resources on each activity, this is done in the resource management knowledge area.

    • 7.5 Timeline View of Project Documents 

    At this point, we know how much project resources are needed to deliver on the project objectives.

    • 7.6 Plan Quality

    It is not enough to simply deliver a project within its defined scope boundaries. Quality is the measure of to what extent you are satisfying the customer, or the sponsor, by meeting their requirements on the project.

    • 7.7 Timeline View of Project Documents

    By finishing the plan quality process, we now have the quality metrics available which will help us in the future to control the project.

    • 7.8 Introduction to Risks

    Risks on projects are uncertain events that matter. This means should they occur; they have an impact on the objectives of the project.  

    • 7.9 Identify Risks

    In the planning phase of Risk Management, we will go through three processes that will create an important output called the Risk Register.

    • 7.10 Perform Qualitative Risk Analysis 

    Now it is important to address which risks are of immediate concern and which ones require your immediate attention.

    • 7.11 Perform Quantitative Risk Analysis

    Now a lot of data and mathematical calculations are used to quantify the various risks. This is done by using various modelling techniques.

    • 7.12 Plan Risk Responses

    The most important part of the planning phase of risk management is to obtain the risk responses using the Plan Risk Responses.

    • 7.13 Timeline View of Project Documents

    We are now equipped with the risk register and now we know how many risks are anticipated on the project, and to what magnitude are those risks going to impact the project objectives.

    • 8.1 Plan Communication

    When the project is ongoing and the real products or services to be delivered are far from the delivery date, the most important output for the customers is the project communication itself.

    • 8.2 Timeline View of Project Documents

    We now know when we should communicate with all the stakeholders to transmit relevant and necessary information.

    • 8.3 Plan Procurement 

    Procurement is about identifying what goods or services you are going to purchase from outside the organisation and how you will make them available.  

    • 8.4 Timeline View of Project Documents

    We now have the make or buy decisions we made finalised on the external vendors we will engage during the execution of the project.

    • 9.1 HOW are things done on the project 

    There is one last important process that needs to be completed in the planning phase, but first, let us go over what we have done so far.

    • 9.2 Develop Project Management Plan 

    This is the last process of the planning phase, and it lays out the guidelines for how the project is done with a roadmap.   

    • 9.3 Individual Management Plans

    The individual management plans are obtained by asking the question – how will we manage each of the aspects of the project that we have discussed so far?

    • 9.4 Timeline View of Project Documents

    At this point, we have all the management plans from the individual knowledge areas which means we have a good understanding of how we will manage each of those areas.

    • 9.5 Timeline View of Project Documents-2 

    This is the conclusion of the planning phase where we now have the Project Management Plan which is going to be a big help when we move into the execution phase.

    • 9.6 Direct and Manage Project Work 

    We are now at the executing stage of the process. The project teams can now get to work with the approved plan. The process that will guide us is in the Integration Management Knowledge Area.

    • 9.7 Timeline View of Project Documents

    We now have the Work Performance Information which is the data about the project which indicates the project health.

    • 9.8 Manage Project Knowledge

    There are “lessons learned” in project management terminology that will influence future projects. This is the Manage Project Knowledge section which is found in the executing phase.

    • 9.9 Timeline View of Project Documents

    At this point, we now have the Lessons Learned Register which we have now started to build based on our observations.

    • 9.10 Monitor and Control Project Work  

    Here you will constantly check for deviations from the project management plan and ensure that the project work is on track as laid out in the management plans.

    • 9.11 Timeline View of Project Documents     

    We now have the change requests in the monitoring and controlling phase that is being initiated to readjust the project in terms of the scope, schedule or cost.

    • 9.12 Perform Integrated Change Control 

    In this lecture, you will learn how to manage changes to the project that are introduced in the middle of the project.

    • 9.13 Steps to perform Change Control 

    Learn how to take the various change requests and get them approved at the end so that they become a part of the project.

    • 9.14 Timeline View of Project Documents   

    We now have the approved change requests that are being finalised to implement in the execution phase.  

    • 9.15 Budget at Completion: BAC 

    This is an essential topic in project management for the controlling of costs and the managing of budgets.

    • 9.16 Planned Value: PV            

    The Planned Value is the cost of work that has been authorised and budgeted for a scheduled activity or WBS component during a given time or phase.

    • 9.17 Earned Value: EV 

    The Earned Value is the value of work completed to date as it compares to the budgeted amount assigned to the work component.

    • 9.18 Schedule Variance (SV) & Schedule Performance Index (SPI) 

    The SV is the difference between the earned value and the planned value. The SPI is the ratio of the earned value and the planned value.

    • 9.19 Actual Cost(AC), Cost Variance and Cost Performance Index

    The Actual Cost is the cost of completing the work component in each period. The Cost Variance is the difference between the earned value and the actual cost.

    • 9.20 Budget Forecasting – Estimate at & to completion 

    We can now forecast how we will perform on the project in the future – If the amount of money that currently exists is enough for us to finish the project right on time and under the budget.

    • 9.21 Close Project or Phase

    All projects have a defined end, this is now the closing part of the project. The project team has built the required product or service and is ready to deliver it to the customers or sponsors.

    • 9.22 Timeline View of Project Documents

    We are now in the closing phase, we have Product/Sales Transition, Lessons Learned and Organizational Process Asset Updates.
