Why I Don't Count Calories - Part 2

In the first part of this blog, I talked about what factors might influence how much we eat, and why it’s not always so simple to work around numbers. Moving beyond daily calorie intake (whether tracked or not) there are other reasons why I don’t follow the calorie counting approach either for fat loss or overall health.

Why I Don't Count Calories - Part 1

No, this isn’t going to be a controversial post, and I’m not trying to imply that calorie deficits don’t matter in weight loss. But there are several reasons why I don’t count calories, points or “track” – either for myself or my clients…

Want To Boost Your Immune System This Winter? Here Are 3 Boosters You'll Want To Try

It’s that time of year when bugs spread, and colds linger to generally spoil the festive season. Sometimes it seems inevitable that we’ll catch something, and so we need to support our immune system as much as possible.

Alcohol: What's The Harm?

In part one “Sober for October” I talked about drinking habits and guidelines for weekly alcohol limits. Now we’ve taken an honest look into how much we drink (those of us who do in fact drink alcohol at least), let’s take a step back… Why might we want to limit our intake in terms of our health goals - sleep, mood, digestive health and training goals? And what tips could we use to take a booze break?

Eat, Drink and Be Merry

Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, it’s hard to escape the indulgence that surrounds us in December.

Meat Free Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays?

First of all, I’m not a vegan, vegetarian or even a pescetarian.  I’ll state from the outset that personally I don’t have a problem with the concept of eating fish, meat or animal products so that’s not what this blog is about. I do however, completely respect different beliefs in this area, and love working with (a growing number of) vegetarian clients.  

Secondly, I can’t claim to be an active environmentalist.  Don’t get me wrong, I care about the planet, but other than reusing plastic bags, recycling, and being selective with certain cleaning products and cosmetics (no microbeads, thanks!) I’ll admit that there is a lot more I could be doing.

 So why exactly am I writing a blog about reducing meat?
