Often, I’ll speak to someone who is frustrated at their lack of progress despite eating every ‘superfood’ known to man, taking some very specific supplements and doing a whole host of very particular exercises.

Usually, it’s a case of forgetting the basics.

While super nutritious foods are of course probably good things to eat, and sometimes specific supplements can be very useful too, for 90% of people, sticking with the basics consistently is enough to get you most – if not […]

I had several replies to the message I sent last week about how to make change stick.

Specifically about point three, which reminded us that we all make our own choices – no one else is making them for us.

I was really pleased that you found that as empowering as I hoped!

You know,

The bottom line is that no one is responsible for what you eat apart from you.

Of course there are days where you’re eating at someone else […]

Weight loss is hard. Making the changes you need to make in order to reach your goals is really difficult, especially when you’re maintaining the changes for the long term.

And while it’s been hard for a lot of reasons while we’ve been stuck at home, it’s still hard now that we’re able to meet up with people again.

So, here are my top five tips for making changes last the distance.

1) Find the goal you […]

Eating food you wouldn’t usually eat, in quantities you hardly remember eating, in the evenings seems a huge issue for so many of us.

We easily justify eating calories equal to a generous meal, after only just eating our dinner.

I’ve written about it fairly often, and there are still more aspects to evening overeating that we can talk about.

I do think it can be fixed. One of the many factors I’ve written about before is likely to […]

Try my new quiz!

I don’t think losing weight, improving fitness and getting in shape should be viewed as a one-size-fits-all.

We’re all individuals, and we all have our own views of what’s easy and what’s not.

When it comes to eating well and exercising, we’ve got some aspects totally sussed and other things which would serve us well to work on.

And then, of course, there’s your […]

Why You Shouldn’t Be Hesitant To Improve Strength or Gain Muscle

When I use the phrase ‘improving strength’ or ‘gaining a little muscle’ while explaining the best way to prime our bodies to burn fat, there’s often something of a hesitation.

Often, strength and muscle are linked inside your mind with body builder style muscles and bulking up.

But, gaining strength doesn’t have to be about lifting heavily loaded bars or huge dumbbells; you can also build strength by practicing and perfecting a whole variety of exercises, and by adjusting variables […]

Nutrition May Be Complicated – But Eating Well Is Not.

The science of nutrition might be pretty complicated, but eating food is not.

Just eat real food.

Eat protein – at least 1g per kilo of your bodyweight every day.

Eat veggies – pretty much as many as you can cram in, of as many different types as you can manage.

Eat a portion of carbohydrates every day, especially if you’re active.

Allow most of your fat intake to come from whole food sources which also fit into another category.

Drink plenty of water.

Keep foods which don’t fall into any of the above categories (like processed food or alcohol […]

With this in mind, I’d like to know what you’re finding hard with respect to nutrition and exercise at the minute.

Is It Good To Ache After A Workout?

Let’s talk about muscle aches after a workout.

Is it a good thing to ache? And does it mean you haven’t worked hard enough if you don’t ache the next day?

Well, the science says that no, you definitely don’t need to ache after a workout in order to be progressing. Just because you’re not aching after yesterday’s workout does not mean it wasn’t an effective workout.

But, is the flip side true too? Have […]

Huge numbers of people have flooded back to gyms this week. This re-opening of gyms seems to have initiated a ‘fresh start’ type feeling which has followed on to those who don’t fancy the gym for whatever reason and have made a start at a new at-home workout program.

It is not at all essential to exercise in a gym if you want to lose weight and make changes to your health and fitness. I […]
