Why is it that as soon as people leave the comforts of home and eat anywhere else, all sense of health, nutrition and portion control go out of the window? It is the ‘treat factor’? I get that, but these days we eat out so often that these ‘treats’ are actually having an impact on […]

Breastfeeding and Fatloss

“Breastfeeding Burns Calories” we are told. It’s also the most natural and nutritious start for your little one, helping to protect against illnesses and allergies, as well as protecting against breast cancer in Mum, so it’s no wonder that almost three quarters of Mums in the UK choose to breastfeed their baby. Hmmm, if that’s so, […]

Should You Send Your Kids To Bootcamp?

Is it just me or is our obsession with all things health, diet, and fitness now being inflicted on our children, as young as 2?! Don’t get me wrong, as a nutritionist and the Director of a health and fitness company I’m a Tiger Mother when it comes to my kids’ well-being – they don’t […]

The Scales Will Make Fools Of You

Fitness Fanatics Have Higher Sex Drives

Making A Habit A Habit.

I’d like to talk about habits. Habits are great. They are what people who are consistently fit and lean do. And the best bit? You don’t even realise you’re doing them! Because that’s what a habit is – it’s done unconsciously, automatically, without a second thought at all, and is therefore completely effortless. You’ve heard […]

New Year New You

  January 1st. The day we start the diet/stop smoking/join the gym/whatever. Or perhaps January 2nd, to give us a day to get over the hangover and polish off what’s left of the Christmas chocolates.
