My name is Adam Warren, I’m 30 years old. First off I’d like to say thank you for visiting, there are many pages on the web so I appreciate you being here! This blog was originally written solely on improving my cooking skills and displaying the journey I was taking, however my other passion is fitness and I wanted to incorporate that part of my life as well.
Up until about 2 years ago I never really had much experience in cooking. I mean it was only when I got to University that I realised that there were other forms of pasta besides Spaghetti (and that was the tinned version!) The way I survived was on frozen, ready-meal dishes that you mostly poked with a fork and stuck in the oven for 20 minutes. When I got to 25 though, I realised I was starting to gain weight and knew what I was eating, along with my ‘partying lifestyle’, played a huge factor. I also realised that being a 25 year old, single guy who couldn’t cook wasn’t a very attractive feature!
Once I had decided to do something about it, my next thought was “ok, well where do I begin?” It took a lot of researching, practicing, learning (and ocassionally burning!) to get to where I am now. Although my skills have got to a high standard I’m still very much on that journey and still have some way to go to get to where I want to be, however what I have learnt I want to share with those that love being in the kitchen and cooking delicious food, so that we can get there together.
Ever since I turned 18 I’ve been in and out of gyms, committing to their contracts and spending my money with very little to show for it. I wanted quick results but didn’t really know what I was aiming for or, more importantly, how I could get there (and I certainly couldn’t afford a Personal Trainer).
Progress finally came after I really committed myself. A few years ago I could get away with all of the unhealthy eating, snacking and drinking I wanted, however it was starting to catch up with me. I was Skyping with one of my relatives and he blurted out “oh Adam you’ve put on weight haven’t you”. Although this hurt, no-one else had pointed it out, perhaps for fear of hurting my feelings however it was exactly what I needed to be told.
From that moment on I looked at my entire lifestlye as objectively as I could. I focused on what I was eating and what I was doing at the gym, and realised I had been wasting a great deal of time and effort.
Food&Fitness Always is about the changes I made and continue to make whilst helping others with their own journeys towards hitting their goals, whilst enjoying healthy and very tasty food!
