Adam MacDougall is a former NRL star who won two premierships with the Newcastle Knights. Since retiring, Adam has turned his attention to helping men become fitter and healther, and he outlines how to achieve this in his new book, The Man Plan.
Adam spoke with us about the book and what inspired him to write it. His plan tells readers how they can become fitter and stronger by exercising for just ten minutes a day, and how overhauling their diet doesn't mean cutting out the foods they love forever.
You can listen to our full chat with Adam here.
Adam is passionate about helping men live their best lives. At a time when a vast majority of health and wellness messages are targeted towards women, his book is important for any man who feels sick, tired, stressed, or overworked (or a combination of those) and doesn't know where to turn to for help.
But getting back on track to good health is easy, right? Well, not quite. On any given day, we are bombarded with multiple competing messages about how to eat well and get maximum benefits from exercise. Are you supposed to give up grains or dairy? Meat or sugar? And how much cardio is too much cardio? Do you even lift? Adam busts exercise myths like 'you need to go to the gym to get fit' and 'cardio is the best way to get rid of your gut' to help even the most time-poor of men get back into shape.
Adam's book puts you back in control of your health. There aren't many things in life that you can control, but you can control what you put in your mouth and how much you move your body every day, and controlling these two factors can change lives. The Man Plan outlines a simple exercise routine consiting of five daily man moves and ten primal moves, and includes fifty recipes that allow you to keep eating the food you love without adding to your waistline.
