The FNS 16:5:1 Philosophy
The FNS Program Philosophy is based around the 16:5:1 Formula. With 24 hours in a day, typically you spend 8 hours sleeping, which means you spend 16 hours of the day in an active and ready state. Of those 16 hours, 5 are typically spent preparing and consuming meals and snacks, with 1 hour a day being devoted to exercise.
This hourly breakdown illustrates why having a positive mindset is the most important aspect of being fit. If you have a negative mindset during those 16 hours you spend awake, it can have a negative affect your meal choices, exercise productivity, relationships, work productivity, etc., and vice versa. It is important to remember this formula as you go through your Game Plan. Keeping a positive mindset will keep you focused and help you make healthier choices throughout the day.
Your FNS Game Plan does not promote rapid change. By focusing on one healthy habit at a time, you can create a lifestyle that you will sustain throughout the rest of your life.
