Dry Brushing

If you were told that there was an easy and painless way to reduce cellulite, would you believe me? Dry brushing is a natural health practice, which has been a traditional method of removing dry skin from the body however, it does more than just remove dry skin. The brush stimulates our circulatory system and activates our lymphatic system,... 

Infrared Saunas

Last post I wrote about the steam room and sauna, and how they can be beneficial to our physical and mental well-being. I left on a note about infrared (IR) saunas and how they need a blog of their own. So, in this blog I am going to explain the benefits of infrared lamps and some of the differences... 

Gluten & Its Friends: The Series – Part Two

Last week I wrote the first part of my gluten series, which explained the different gluten intolerances. I also briefly mentioned wheat allergies and how they can also be present without a gluten intolerance. If you haven’t done so already, please read Gluten and its friends – Part One as it will provide you with the information needed to... 

Dairy is for Cows

This concept will be a controversial one – background, education and experience as a nutritionist, coach, doctor, personal trainer, etc.  All determines different approaches. However, this is my approach and strong belief, and I’d like to explain why I have chosen this lifestyle for myself, and my clients, in the simplest way possible.   A simple question, where does... 

ASPARTAME is Chemical Poison!

When it comes to artificial sugars, there is one that undeniably needs to be cut from our diets – aspartame. There are so many controversial products on the market, that are 100% not good for us (cigarettes for one), and aspartame is high on that list. It is hidden in our food and drink as an artificial sugar and,... 

Carbs are not the enemy!

When I first started writing meal plans for others, it was evident that there was not enough mainstream information circulating about healthy fat loss. The ever so popular fad diets, such as Atkins, had promoted the idea that to lose weight you needed to cut out carbohydrates. Although I knew this was a popular theory, what I hadn’t realised,... 

Managing the Silly Season

It’s that time of year again, where all the holidays fall within the same month – Christmas, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and Australia Day, and while it’s great to set goals and be determined, it’s also extremely important to have balance. When dieting, the ‘all or nothing’ approach is quite common but, it doesn’t have to be that... 

5 Tips for Keeping on Track!

Lack of motivation, preparation and self-doubt are 3 of the most common reasons why we fail when starting a new diet or training program. It takes 21 days to create a habit and 90 days to change a lifestyle but, it’s not always easy to make it to those key markers. So, here are my ‘5 Tips for Keeping... 

Good VS Bad Fats

When it comes to the word fat, most will assume the worst – it’s the notion that low-fat foods will keep you from gaining unwanted weight, that drives this false norm. Look around you at the supermarket, there is an abundance or low-fat options but, fats are actually a vital component of our diet. So, what are the different... 

What you don’t know about Sodium!

Who doesn’t love salt and why wouldn’t we? It tastes amazing and acts as a natural preservative, keeping our food from spoiling! However, it’s also a key component of our diet for more than just our tastebuds. Salt is our main source of sodium chloride, a vital micronutrient that we require for muscle contraction, nerve stimulation and fluid regulation.... 

Look after your gut, so it can look after you!

Everyone is buzzing about the importance of gut health and it’s extremely exciting! The movement is challenging old fashioned, damaging fad diets and shifting towards a holistic approach. Inevitably, this will eliminate ‘quick fix yo-yo diets’ and enable maintainable results. But what is gut health, why is it so important and what can you do to achieve it? Gut...
