  • Instead of powders and shakes, cant we find real, natural, nutritious organic food to eat. Eating from containers is tasteless boring and just wrong. With so many tasty healthy foods out there, enjoy them. Food can be your best friend. Not powders? Sorry Zuzka but if we are going to have a candlelight dinner together shakes are not on the menu.We are going to be eating sensual, exotic meals. Mixed with spices and herbs from around the world. Your stunning body and taste buds will love it.


  • Help me out here you said having ketones with protein after workout for keto people. If I workout fasted there will be ketones already so just the protein? So I don’t need a ketone supplement?

  • ok Zuzana I am considering ur videos cause I need the motivation and guidance to lose weight. Iv been a follower for a while and I think it is time to get in and involved to see the change I want and need. What exactly can I expect from ur dvds, is it a specific work out n meals too? I am 5’9 and 265 and very sedentary so can ur workouts still be for me as a real beginner, I don’t want to like die mid circuit.? they r well priced so I can afford it.

  • I have never taken supplements and have been gaining strength.
    Look at what raw foods have valine, bcaas, etc. Honestly, brown rice a banana and coffee is great pre workout. Post workout I go heavy on hemp/chia seeds and vegetables with a serving of fish and carbs. Shrimp is my shit! Also look at adaptagens like ashwaghanda is great. Ashitaba is great for pulling and metabolizing your nutrients your taking in. Check it out y’all

  • Hi Zuzana! I am 150 Lbs and 5’9″. I would like to gain 10 Lbs of muscle in 2 months. Is that possible for me to do with the diet you suggest along with nutritional supplements like Muscle Milk? I really want to gain weight, but I eat lean meats and I’m unsure if I should eat fattier foods. Thanks in advance!

  • Actually, whey protein WILL ALSO DIVERT BLOOD AWAY FROM YOUR MUSCLES. So take EAAS, then wait 30 to mintues to take in whey AFTER.

  • Those are some clean looking glasses. What brand/model are your eyeglass frame? Thanks for all the information on what to look for

  • Hello Zuzana! I heard from one trainer that it’s only good to eat fruit before you work out. Is that true? He trainer said that fruit was very high in natural sugar and I shouldn’t eat it until I’m about to exercise. However, I eat mostly fruit during the day, and then I have meat and veggies for dinner. I don’t eat sugar/sweets, starch, or much (if any) processed foods. Please advise, thank you!:)

  • Hi Zuzana! I wanted ask you, if I workout in the afternoon can I still have carbs for dinner? ‘Cause i heard many times that you shouldn’ t be eating carbs and fruit for dinner is that true? xoxo

  • Dear Jim, how are ya???
    I have a question or two.
    Im a skinny,about to start a heavy labor job.
    Im able to gain weight quickly due to the fact that im pushing 40 and currently not in top shape as yourself.
    I am able to hike 10 plus miles aday without feeling it the next day, wearing steel toed boots. As long as im able to eat a decent meal and all.

    What would be a path of a post sup, that wont mess with your stomach. Bending and lifting all day..lol i dont want to dot myself:-p.
    Im not trying to get super ripped like you, lol. But just get my upper body alittle more in shape.
    Plus protien and water are best friends, i know this.
    But a cheese burger or two a week wont hurt what im trying to do, ya know.
    Any advice would be awesome..
    Thanks Jim, Cheers
