Green Bananas (Image: Unsplash.com) Going for unripened yellow bananas may seem like a healthier choice for many, it’s a good idea to eat it before working out. Green bananas are rich in vitamins and minerals, and they’re also a good source of fibre. However, this healthy snack. Here are some foods to avoid before a workout.

Beans, and other belly-bloating foods. Foods like beans, raw broccoli, fruit, and dairy tend to give people gas. Although these foods are health. There are some surprisingly ‘healthy’ foods on this list We’ve long been told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but that could be false.

Wha. When you eat before a workout, you’re making your body have to decide between an internal process (processing the food) and an external process (converting energy into work—i.e. pushing that weighted sled farther and faster). And the internal process is going to win out every time. “You can’t hit pause on digestion,” he says.

  • Manon & James, you’re too much fun! Let me know when you’re in Colorado. Have some beautiful mountain routes I’d love to show you.

  • Love this, and I’m a respecter for vegans or meat eaters, cause Personally no one can shove any opinion down our throats unless they shit it out Butt hurt. God Bless:D

  • Thank you sooo much for getting straight to the point and keeping the video short. Gah majority of the videos out here just tells u all sorts of blah blah before getting to the point but sometimes some people just want to know the simple things like what u said. So thank you for not waste 11-20 mins on other jibber jabber.

  • I’ve never been a fan of the 80/20 rule especially when it comes to achieving abs “abs are made in the kitchen..not the gym” not true in my opinion why can’t abs be made in the kitchen AS WELL as the gym. Working out and eating right work TOGETHER…doing one without the other defeats the purpose

  • I really like you guys! Was looking for HIIT excercises and your videos are awesome! fun! Different workouts for all walks of life. Easy to do, gets you sweating without thinking about it! Awesome job!

  • I just cut out the junk foods and eat breakfast lunch in smaller but filling meals. As well as snacks I eat fruits or a smoothie or cheese. Without soda and Just drinking water and OJ is great. Its nice I just want to get used to dieting and bringing in healthier meals to the table. I also started training to go jogging with a friend, which I’m so excited I remember jogging when I was younger for soccer. There is ice and snow out side my side walks so I will have to wait for a bit to start.

  • bro im telling you this you are wrong. you should have a source of protein in the morning to keep your sugar balance. especially if you eat otmeal that keep your sugar low. maybe you take a protein shake with it but dont tell wrong info to people like that. learn find a good source then make your video. i dont think anybody knows more then I other then an doctor and a nutritionist as i work with them in a hospital as a nurse.

  • I must be a rare breed then lol, don’t get hangovers and have been on a big night out and then did 100k the next day, no slower than normal

  • he only takes 4 LOOOOL i take 8!!! Olimp Redshit… it’s so fucking weak.. have to take freaking 10 scoops…. 1k Caffine! yeah bitch!

    Edit: if you guys didn’t know 1k caffine is = 100mg DMHA IT’S PERFECTLY FINE!

  • 1.) i just wanna say great video. No 5 minute intro repeating the title and quick to the point.
    2.) Jordan Peterson talks about having a protein focused breakfast. Would you recommend eggs after a workout? Also isnt there a way to consume and use lipids for energy instead of carbohydrates since lipids last longer?

  • Once took two and a half scoops of three different pre workouts and half of an energy drink and I was sweating before even starting my workout and it was very difficult to breathe. Still killed them deadlifts tho lol.

  • Dude, really? I know this is supposed to be a satirical joke, but he’s got a Budweiser over there. Some teenager could see this and actually try to drink a Budweiser. You really should be ashamed of yourself…because everyone knows it should be a Sam Adams there.

  • I bought some today. Along with $208 worth of other sups and I haven’t even started going to the gym yet, but this video makes me want to try this shit right now!!!

  • What exactly is Custokebon Secrets? How does this thing really work? I see a lot of people keep on talking about this popular fat burn methods.

  • Great video! At current we’re using nonfictionfit.com freshly roasted coffee pre-workout! Would love to know your thoughts on natural ones also:)

  • I have always been skinny but skinny doesn’t equal fitness, i’m actually quite out of shape and that is why I am starting to workout.

  • This still surprise me, just how a lot of people do not know about Custokebon Secrets, despite the fact that many people get great results because of it. Thanks to my mate who told me about Custokebon Secrets, I’ve lost lots of weight with it without starving myself.

  • Its still shock me just how a number of people don’t know about Custokebon Secrets even though a lot of people using it. Thanks to my personal buddy who told me about it. I have lost a ton of weight.

  • Was this filmed in Devon? Dartmoor?

    I seen people getting out of a VW Bus in GCN rig the other day. I mentioned to my partner that it could be the GCN crew making a video ��

  • I love u Kelly!!! I’m so glad I landed on your YouTube channel ������ thanks for telling ur story and giving great advice!! Love ur videos and ur hot bod��✨��✨

  • I love your rants because you tell the truth. We (the general public) always try to find an “easy” way to get fit instead of the tried and true way…diet AND exercise. Thanks for the video reminder.

  • In my case, I’ve found that diet is everything when it comes to losing fat. However, every body is different. What has worked for me in the past is intermittent fasting with soy meal replacement shakes or VERY strict no carb/high fat diet (reaching ketosis) along with a potent multi vitamin daily, high intensity interval training 30min 3-5x a week, weight training 2-3x a week. The fat literally sloughs right off in record time, all while still retaining muscle mass. It is very difficult in the beginning, but consistency is key. Awesome video! Awesome motivation!

  • Yes you can lose more weight with only dieting alone but trust me, you won’t be able to maintain it. I was a yoyo dieter so I’ve been there.

  • Thank you for the video. I’m using your vid everyday.. and feeling good. It’s good that you dont put any music..b cos it can be stressful with fast music… Thank you so much!!

  • We agree. If we can’t eat well and weight train, our hiking certainly suffers. Thanks for helping/motivating us to do what we love.

  • The first time i took pre workout i was at home, i had 8 hours of sleep in 3 days and just wanted to see if it was any different than a cup of coffee, i took 2 scoop
    The next thing i remember is me only wearing my underwear with my finger and face burning doing an uncountable number of pushup because i was physically incapable of not working out. Fucking rocket fuel in my chest and arms, after 4 hours i felt like it was maybe time to stop even tho my muscle were still asking for it. Best fucking experience of my life
    A sick pump > your organs or whatever you find in your body

  • My real issue is that I have a horrible emotional addiction to bad foods as well as the regular one that comes with eating it too often. I didn’t have a very good childhood on the whole. Sugar, and sweets and treat foods were kinda my solace for the last 20 years (Do not feed your 6 month old a sucker. That’s just bad parenting imo)

    So due to the other issues that came along, I am solely focusing on working out consistently as possible. I focus a bit on food, but I have so much trouble with it. I just get that craving, likely due to underlying depression or emotional void and it will not go away.
    I try really hard to not go get sweets and I can hold off sometimes, but not others. And even after 6 months of only things like fruit and dark chocolate limited on a eating plan, I went back to my old habits. It’s really frustrating and due to my well, shitty childhood, I also just get mad at myself rather than think “it’s okay to screw up, I can get better with time” and instead that negative thought train just spirals, which makes me want to fill the emotional void again and it just goes in an endless cycle of self-loathing and frustration. I know I likely need therapy on this issue, but if anyone has any advice, I’d love to hear it. And if therapy is the answer, well, it was still kinda relieving to share my story. I know I’m not the only one. And if nothing else, these awesome videos you guys do really help. Especially because you guys are so thoughtful and kind to peoples issues mental or physical in regards to having a healthy body and life style.

  • Years ago I would buy a different preworkout every so often and I would consolidate it with the rest of whatever I had before. So after awhile I had a concoction of like 7 different preworkouts mixed together. And of course I always kept the biggest scoop. One day I took a couple big scoops and my heart felt really weird. Almost like a liquidy feeling. It scared the shit out of me.

  • I know Hank got his name from Hank Williams, but it seems it should be “Les Nessman”. In the 1970’s TV show WKRP, Les always had a bandage on. Seems Hank has a fresh wound in just about every video.

  • Poor amounts of sleep: I always sleep badly before a big ride. Or a ride with someone who is keen to see if I’ve made any progress.

  • I absolutely love you guys! What a way to keep it real. You are really a breath of fresh air and I truly appreciate having fitness blender for us all.

  • I wanted to know if you have workouts that are good for people that have some physical disabilities? My husband has arthritis in his lower back and bad knees (his 48 years old). He was a cross country runner and a boxer in the Navy. Is there anything that he can do to get a good workouts without aggravating his injuries? Thanks. 


  • Nothing better than a cold beer after a long ride on a hot day with your feet up at home I usually crash like a dead man and sleep for hours afterwards.
    You have to treat yourself every now and again.:)

    That said, I notice that I usually gain weight when one beer becomes two or three, but usually feel stronger on the bike the next day. More calories available to burn I guess. Weight-loss day legs are the worst!

    I am definitely guilty of over-training (usually out on the bike or the trainer every day for 2 + hours), but it does wonders for my mental health and stress levels.

    Enjoyed the video, keep them coming!

  • For me working out is much easier than eating right. One because I genuinely enjoy working out, personally I can’t see myself never working out again like I used to. 2nd because I live at home and don’t make enough money to spend on my own groceries so I have to eat what’s handed to me. 3rd I get horrible hunger feelings around PMS and I get massive cravings for sugar on a regular basis. I honestly wish it was only exercise. I know I’ll get to the place one day where I can eat the way I need and want for myself and body. But for now I flip flop between eating really good and bingeing on junk food. om nom nom

  • Anyone else struggling to keep on it now restrictions are being lifted? Proper got back into cycling in March but now I’m back at at work and finding it hard to find the time and motivation.

  • Quick question to anyone who can help. If your height shows you overlapping on frames size recommendations do you go for the smaller or larger of the 2 frames? I’m 5′ 10″ and i see a lot of frames showing i fit either a 54 or 56!

  • Yeah, stress. Cycling is one of the very few things in life that helps reduce stress for me. A friend commented years ago the happiest he ever saw me was at a time when I was heavily into riding.

  • Q??? If I’m lactose intolerant & have a nut allergy. What advice would you give me for a pre-work breakfast? Thank you kindly in advance for your help my brotha.

  • Thanks for sharing…spot on, I say! When I was an athlete in HS, I swam before n after school 2-3 hrs..on top of weekend meets. When I ate badly, it reflected in performance. In my 20’s, the 80/20 diet worked somewhat for me then…but by the time 30’s hit…and a few more kids….now in my late 40’s, 100/100 is the only real, lasting solution for me. 

  • There are times when I cook my own dinners because my dad rarely includes veggies and the good stuff in our meals. When eating healthy and exercising I get the satistfaction that the inside of my body is a clean and happy system, nowadays I can’t even eat junk knowing all the rubbish and man made chemicals I’m going to be putting in my body! It’s becoming a habit where I almost always look at the ingredients on packaging before eating or purchasing

  • Fuck the pre. I just jack off Great Whites and inject that shit directly into my arteries. Massive fucking gains, bro. If it works, why stop?

  • Having a baby, definitely the quickest way to lose fitness. Breaking your arm doesn’t help matters either if you were wondering…

  • Had a quick look at what you people promote as clean eating.

    loaded with disease laden ingredients. Absolutely no real food choices. All low carb crap.

    You should not be giving advice.

  • lmfao 1:3 dimeth was in a preworkout I tried once. I was sitting on a bench struggling to breathe and I thought I was having a heart attack

  • BOTH have such a profound affect on my mental heath, mood, and energy. Great message: Choose the BIGGER life! MORE whole foods AND plenty of exercise and fresh air. We have such a WIDE array of beautiful fruits, colorful vegetables, various whole grains, tasty proteins, and rich, delicious fats before us (plus the occasional indulgent French pastry!) gifts in abundance. And the ability to exercise is a real privilege. So many people live with debilitating illness, people who would love the chance to dance, lift, run, walk, hike, cycle, row… Let’s not take these things for granted. Celebrate both food and exercise if they are yours to choose. One day, they may no longer be so. D&K: Your “rants” are really just calls to remind us of how good we have it. Refreshing! My motivation at (almost) 50 is not a bikini (heaven forbid!), but hopefully life with someday-grandchildren and enjoying the second half of it all with my awesome, active hubby who loves to hike. For this, I need a strong, fit body so I can enjoy these years. It just gets better and better when you love your body for what it can do and not how it looks. THANK YOU for all you do.

  • Just wondering… I have recently lost 55+ lbs in 3 months, I feel really flabby. Im afraid to be saggy. Do you have workouts you could recommend? Please, let me know asap. I’m doing this workout in tge am. Looks really intense, which is a good thing. Thanks in advance!!!!:))))

  • Hi Matt! Is it fine to eat banana in the morning with an empty stomach? They said it will cause imbalance of magnesium and potassium in blood if you eat it with empty stomach.. Kinda confused. So many misleading info spreading around ��

  • The problem I have is I eat wayyy too much calories due to my gluttony issue. But I do workout ard 30 to 40 mins a day, but still gaining weight because I didn’t burn off the cals I have eaten. I’m still working on eating clean and lesser.:) any tips to curb appetite? Thanks!

  • I’d like to know how many ppl in fitness blender were morbidly obese at sometime in their life? To clarify, I mean over 300 pounds. Studies overwhelmingly show that diets don’t work. They didn’t work for me. Trust me it isn’t simply about will power, the body wants what the body wants, if you battle against your body, you will lose.

  • Hey guys,

    I just wanted to say that I appreciate the value of all of your videos SO MUCH that, even though I don’t often buy stuff online, I went ahead and purchased your 8 week fat loss program without much thought.

    Any time I can’t (or just don’t want to) make it to the gym, I can put on one or two of your videos and get a good workout in for the day that’s fast yet I can still feel it! You guys do such a great job, so I’m excited to follow you 8 week plan and let you know how it works for me!

    Much love,
    Laura C

  • The one PB I got running was literally the day after going out for 12 pints I felt awful but I got it so uhh I’m either that rare breed or beer doesn’t do anything

  • I have to admit that as a Food chemist, additives and whatnot are a part of my daily life. But I respect your opinion about not eating anything you can’t pronounce (I can lol). I love your videos and honesty, you’ve helped me so much and you are right, both aspects are equally important. Have a great 2014, you deserve it.

  • This topic came up today during a discussion on weight loss, and I had people completely trash the 50/50 plan in favour of an 80/20 plan simply because they don’t want to be ‘shredded’. 

    Thanks for the video. Hope to share this with people who are silly enough to think dieting is more important than exercise.

  • I came here for ideas of what it eat because as of right now, I just eat a piece of whole grain, wheat toast before I leave for the gym.
    It seems to give me enough energy to wake me up and my body takes care of the rest because I’m a naturally hype person.
    I’d totally go for bananas every morning, but I can’t eat em.

  • Thank you for posting this video. I eat lots of fruit throughout the day because I love fruit. Do you think eating fruit throughout the day is adding weight gain?

  • Fair play guys, my prejudices based on life experience tended to make me think of anyone who cycles even semi seriously as a narcissistic, possibly psychopathic, Lycra clad joyless type. Then I saw this vid… ��

  • Love this. I’m a physician assistant in family practice (in the southeast US) so I have this conversation with my patients every. single. day. I wish I could just leave your videos on a loop in our waiting room! Thanks for being a resource for me and presenting reliable, practical information to the public. You guys are doing good work and impacting lives. Keep it up!

  • This advice is shit. What do you classify as clean eating? What is very active?

    News flash. It’s 80% diet. You can’t exercise off a bad diet. That doesn’t mean you don’t work out 7 days a week it just means you’re not going to get the results unless you eat properly.

    Condescending, empty, vapid, obtuse statements don’t mean shit in the real world. your diet is everything.

  • you know those white cubes you set on fire and they make big flame…..i snore that shit before soccer i shot a guy with a boll and he fucking flew 5 feet in the air

  • Hi Kelli and Daniel,
    I am on a fast diet and do exercises 40 minutes an hour exercise everyday, interchangeably with yoga and tai chi. My favourite exercises from Fitness Blender is 40 minutes total fat blasting, also upper and lower body toning in separate days. You know what! I lost 5kg in 1,5 months! I feel much happier and lighter. Now I’m eating healthy and doing exercises everyday. Thank you for your helpful and encouraging videos. Keep up the good work! Love you guys!

  • Please can you direct me to exercises that I can do after surgery on my back I love running but its nit possible do you have recommendations for high cardio low impact?

  • Amen! Kelly, help! I did the ultimate butt and thigh workout and loved it but now my quads are huge! Any way I can reduce their size?

  • Im 55, retired and only a bit overweight. But cake on a ride is great and a post ride pint or two is just ace.

    But then, I’m not racing anymore and ride because I love being on the bike.

  • It’s fascinating how much of this video is anecdotal practice advise, including the comments.

    Both diet and exercise are very important, date I say equally important, when it comes to HEALTH.

    HOWEVER, based on the evidence, diet is FAR more important for WEIGHT LOSS.

    You can control 100% of your calories in, while you can only control about 30% of your calories out (exercise).

  • Some people will of course lower their risks of illnesses and diseases etc by simply eating clean. Evidenced by my dad who was instructed to lose weight due to his diabetes (he reached the age of 65 and developed it despite being only probably 1 stone overweight) and so he overhauled his diet, and has massively improved his health in the eyes of the his doctors. Of course staying active is incredibly important, but i think the average person can definitely become healthier by eating very cleanly. Then again you won’t have a physical endurance, or it will lessen with age, so i guess both exercise and diet together!!

  • i totally agree vegans should not shove their lifestyle down the throat of others u should encourage ppl to eat clean and healthy that should be the goal

  • I’m having such a hard time just doing it. I can’t afford a gym membership so I think maybe if I just eat better but I do for two days then fail miserably and man I just can’t get back on it, it’s just so much to lose. I need to lose almost 50 pounds and it just sounds like soooooo much weight to lose hahahha Lord help me.

  • Bro siffs Take Cellular C4 Pre Workout Blue Raspberry!! It literally taste so good and you get the GAINZ LIKE CRAZY!! Here is a link from amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01KYKJ344/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B01KYKJ344&linkCode=as2&tag=fitnessandnutrition-20&linkId=ebeb84b17fd91a1cb1a85287f2cad170

  • Love this. I can’t express just how angry I get when someone says “I’ve lost weight and I didn’t even exercise” or “I want a bikini body this year” (Then exercise a couple of times a month for a month). I agree completely, eating healthy and exercising is just as important as each other with consistency. 

  • What rubbish… Stop selling your products… Guys diet is 80 percent whereas excercise is just 20 percent… Follow it u will surely lose weight

  • Future episode should be how much fitness do you lose drinking a stout vs a lager vs lite beer vs a Belgian triple. Lloyd vs Hank for this one

  • So true! I used to eat whatever I wanted within 1200 cals and run 2 miles every other day and I got no where! But once I started eating clean and doing a more wide variety of workouts (mostly FitnessBlender videos ;p) I’ve lost 10 pounds of fat and gained healthy muscle, and I’m a vegetarian so it is very hard for me to gain lean muscle!:) I’ve never been over weight but now I’m confident and healthy! Thank you for your lovely videos, I’m gonna be one ripped grandma in my 90s:P

  • Do you have any suggestions for me to work out without using my legs too much? I hurt my ankle, and now I can’t run or jump or do kickboksing for a while. How can I still do cardio?

  • I think the “80/20” idea is very popular because it allows people an excuse to put in a minimum amount of effort as a society I think we are always looking for the quickest, easiest way to see results, which is why diet pills are so popular. To be honest I used to fall for the “diet is way more important than exercise” thing I actually lost over 5kg mainly from calorie restriction with a only small amount of exercise, but even as I approached my goal weight I realised that yes, I may be thinner, but I’m not stronger or fitter, I’m certainly not as toned as I would like. Which is why I now watch Fitness Blender:) So really, if you want to actually look and feel good, exercise really is important.

  • I rolled in from a night out at 2am Sunday morning last week then headed out for a 100 mile ride at 9. It was unpleasant to say the least.

  • Please can you direct me to exercises that I can do after surgery on my back I love running but its nit possible do you have recommendations for high cardio low impact?

  • Awesome workouts.  great for when you are deployed.  I look forward to my 30-40 minutes with Daniel and Kelly every day.  My goal was just to stay in shape and have lost inches and increased my Physical Fitness Test Score.  WIN-WIN.  Not to oversimplify but cut your portions by 1/3 and exercise every day even if its only for a half hour and you will see gains.  Its not a sprint its a marathon.  A couple of weeks and you will see gains and meeting short term goals.  Thanks for your program, it really has changed how I approach overall fitness.


    But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars-they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”


  • This is great. You’re always so sincere and aren’t afraid to tell it like it is instead of the whole profit-driven: “Weight loss is SOOO easy if you use our system!” Thank you for your very informative and no BS advice. KEEP IT UP!

  • If all you muscle Gurus would wash your mouth with some green liquid soap we could glean something from your silver coated tongues of wisdom. Otherwise I can just take a circus peanut before pumping iron it will give me the same effect. Lets save some big bucks here dudes.

  • Sometimes I feel like you guys say what other trainers are either afraid to say or just don’t know better. I have believed in your concepts for a long time, even before seeing your videos. Thank you.

  • I do something like 80% workout, 20% diet, and it works absolutely fine for me (lost 16 pounds during the last six months and generally got alot stronger, fitter, healthier). I work out 4-6 times per week, usually between 30 and 60 minutes. When it comes to diet, I just take care not to eat too much sweets and stuff like that. I also make sure that vegetables are always the biggest part of the meals and that bread is always full grain (thanks for the hint!), but apart from that I just eat as much as I want of whatever I want whenever I want. Never counted calories.

  • I eat really healthy and work out six days a week. I am training to be on my school’s water polo team. Can I still lower my body fat percentage without counting calories?

  • I very rarely drink ever and I had 2 pints of Stella on a ride when I was really thirsty, talk about mistakes what an unbelievable headache when I got home

  • Biggest ones for me: Don’t drink too much alcohol, and don’t over-train and get hurt. Of these two, overtraining is definitely the worst option, especially if you’re older. A few pints too many will definitely ruin your ride the next day, or possibly even prevent it and make you feel like the moron you most certainly are. But if you try to ramp up your riding too quickly, or forget that you’re not 25 any more when you charge up that big hill, and strain a knee tendon or blow out a hamstring muscle, you’re not riding anywhere for a very, very long time. This is not only bad for your physical fitness, but kind of devastating for your mental health, especially right now, when bicycling may be one of the only things in one’s life that feels relatively normal.

  • well Hank i think it is ok to crash now and then, this means you are pushing your skills to the limit not just riding to stay fit and look good on camera keep up the excellent work and take care best wishes to all GCN staff!!!!

  • doms not wrong first time i took pre workout was when i was playing football and i would train in the gym we had daily and one guy had these pre workout sups and offered me one because i was being a bitch about only sleeping 2 hours

    ended up fucking cranking out the best workout i had to date and the almighty lord himself came down from the heavens and we fucked a dinosaur together while curling 100kgs

  • Kelli could you please do a video talking about being on your period while you’re trying to lose weight? How to deal with cravings, comforting eating, bloating, mood swings and feeling like you want to give up?! Basically juST HOW TO SURVIVE!?!?! Thanks, love you guys xx

  • What are some ways to lost tons of weight? I read lots of superb opinions on the internet about how Fenoboci Diet Plan can help you lost a lot of weight. Has anybody tried this popular weight loss method?

  • Eggs before workout are GREAT. The white are pure protein. They will help repair the muscles, the damaged cells, joints… The yolk are super rich in vitamins, carbs and Omega 3 wich is the most important fat for muscle building, repairing muscle fibers. Yolks also contains healthy cholesteril wich is converted to testosterone.

  • You should do a video where Hank points out all his scars and explains where and when he got them. Kind of like in lethal weapon…… Or maybe not ��

  • Hello. I am 9weeks pregnant. The only vitamin my OB gave me is Mosvit Elite. Nothing else. Is it enough? Please respond. Thank you,

  • Hello Mam I have a few Questions for you.

    I am a 20 years old boy from Mumbai, India and I am into endurance cycling. I wanted to ask that as I burn a lot of calories throughout the day during long distance cycling tours, so what kind of food and liquids should I intake to stay energetic and hydrated throughout the day and not breaking down in between??? Should I eat carbohydrate containing foods like boiled Corn with some veggies or protein containing foods and apart from drinking water can I try taking enerzal powder in water???

    By the I have watched all your pregnancy nourishment videos for my university research project and your videos are very helpful and every small detail is explained in an excellent way. I loved your videos, you talk with very simplicity and always give a happy smile. Thank you very much mam. God bless you.
