Did you have a good day on Monday? Or was it just horrible?

Well, allegedly blue Monday was the most depressing day of the year and the day the majority of us will have failed our new year’s resolutions or quit our diets and get-fit plans.

BodyFire’s founder and professional rugby player James Haskell reckons he can get you on track.

“Remember, greens are king! Swap those carbs on the side of your plate for greens, vegetables give you a shot of vitamins and nutrients. Imagine your plate as a pie chart, you should want to see a large share of the chart made-up of protein, a large share featuring vegetables and the remainder of the chart, the smallest element by far, comprising your choice of carbs.

Juicing is a huge craze for 2014, it’s simple, yet effective. Juicing is a great way to get the greens you need without having to eat them with every meal, juicing will also give you the vitamins and minerals you need to keep your body and your mind happy. Juices are great as main meals or as meal replacements.

When I juice, I ensure to add Tagaloa. Tagaloa organic coconut oil is an essential food product for anyone serious about nutrition; it has a superb combination of fatty acids, which help with energy metabolism. Coconut oil is a great source of the once demonised saturated fat in the diet. The fats provide medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are a great and accessible form of energy,” says James.

Sometimes the main reason we fail at our new year’s resolutions is lack of motivation, sometimes we just need that extra kick to make us get up and go! If you’ve invested in that gym membership, make the most of it! Hades (for men) and Hella (for women) are pre-trainer and fat burning food supplements designed to help you take fitness training to the next level and maximise results.

James has teamed up with ex London Wasps Rugby Club chef, Omar Meziane to create a variety of great tasting Tagaloa meals and smoothies.  To view James and Omar’s recipes visit Bodyfire’s YouTube channel: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAMfA6rLKaU
