Pushing beyond his limits made Shaffie realise that if he wanted to see changes, he needed to work hard for it.
To start things off, I started to watch my diet and calorie intake for the next 4 months. I took up a no-sugar diet and ate in moderation with specific meal preparations. If I go out with my friends and family, I will ensure my calories are kept to the minimum and always opted for the healthier food option.
For those aspiring to compete in Men’s Physique competition(s), my advice is ‘To achieve your goals, you got to stay focused and be consistent every day’. Getting a good body is not just about exercising or how much you lift, it’s more than that! 70% of your results come from food. I always believe that WHAT YOU EAT SHAPES YOUR BODY.
I am so proud of myself and my achievements as I stepped on the stage with the other competitors. It is a shared achievement with the friends that I made through the journey, who supported me along the way. I am blessed to have gone through this experience.
