The benefits of eating Green beans and Fava beans.

Green beans:

  • For best results and maintaining the nutrient value steam them for 4 – 5 minutes.
  • Believe it not green beans are a powerful anti-toxin food. They contain flavonoids like catechins, epicatechins, and procyanidins that detox the body.
  • They provide you with an essential mineral called silicon. Important for bone health and formation of healthy connective tissue.
  • Nutritional value includes:  vitamin K,  manganese, vitamin C, fiber, folate, vitamin B2, copper, vitamin, B1, chromium, magnesium, calcium, potassium, phosphorus, choline, vitamin A, vitamin B3, protein, omega-3 fats, iron, vitamin B6, vitamin E
  • Improvement in levels of blood fats and better protection of these fats from oxygen damage has been shown to result from green bean intake, overall this improves your cardiovascular system.

Fava beans:

  • Eaten raw will release more of the nutritional values in Fava beans, however they can still be cooked and retain high levels of nutrition.
  • Dense with vitamins and minerals, high in protein, offering 10 g per 1/4-cup serving
  • Stacked full of Folate. Folate belongs to the B family of vitamins and is vital for energy metabolism. Also supports the function of the nervous system and aids in the synthesis of DNA, RNA and red blood cells
  • If your diet lacks iron, these little bad boys are packed full of it.  A cup full will supply you with 30% of your RDA
  • Full of Manganese. Manganese supports the function of the nervous, immune and endocrine systems and is required for the production of superoxide dismutase, an enzyme that is also a powerful antioxidant. Manganese helps prevent arthritis, osteoporosis and diabetes.
  • Soluble, fiber-rich food that supports cardiovascular health. Soluble fiber is particularly effective at lowering low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol levels, commonly referred to as “bad” cholesterol.

My Money-Back Guarantee To You

My 'Fitness Freedom Money-Back Guarantee' & 'Program Swap Guarantee' To You

If the reviews and success stories didn’t already convince you, then hear me out. I am completely confident that the Fitness Freedom Programs will change how you workout forever.

In fact, I’m so confident, that if it doesn’t help improve your understanding of mindful muscle-centric TRX (or band) technique, change your body, and ultimately help you achieve your fitness goal, the Program is all yours FREE forever.


So, you’re free to join the whole Program, and try it out. Watch the teaching videos, read the training guides, join the private Facebook Group Community, drop me a message anytime and connect with your body like never before using the Programs…

If you follow the entire Program exactly as prescribed, and do not gain anything in the next 8 – 10 weeks than you ever had previously, you have the right to a prompt and full refund, no questions asked. Could any offer be fairer than that?

Or if you think you've chosen the wrong Program (too easy/hard, prefer a different split, wrong goal etc) you can swap to another within the first few days, free of charge!

I didn’t create the Fitness Freedom Programs as just another ‘workout plan’...

I created them because I love helping people ‘see the light’ by teaching them how to gain a Life of fitness freedom, and not lack results like I did for years inside a gym, confined and mindlessly ‘just moving’.

Gain your Fitness freedom! Adam, TRX Traveller
