I feel this is an important topic to cover, since so many of us are eternally seeking a certain figure, or a certain look.

We feel that once we reach our goal, life will be better because we will finally be happy with the way we look and we’ll just skip off into the sunset in delirious happiness.

But the truth is – the figure/look you want, is never the figure/look you want.

Even once you’ve reached your goal […]

The schools are back and we have a little more time and control over our days again.

It seems like a good time to get back on to the healthy lifestyle wagon, and to prepare for what could be, with a bit of luck, a much more sociable festive season than last year! Sorry. It’s inexcusable to refer to that time of year in September.

So, I’m looking for two ladies who are fed up with being stuck in a cycle of on:off dieting for low reward.

Do you feel like you’re always either ‘on it […]

Feeling satisfied by what we’re eating is something we often don’t consider enough when thinking about a weight loss plan.

But, feeling hungry is one of the biggest reasons people quit on the changes they’d started to make to their diet.

Of course, there are lot of reasons for hunger from the obvious to the less obvious like hormones, poor sleep or stress. While we can influence many of the causes of hunger as part of a well-planned […]

Sometimes, it can feel like we’re doing everything right yet we don’t feel as good as we feel we should given the effort we’re making.

There’s a massive array of things which can cause this, but to get you started, here are some things to look at:

Diet
Regardless of what the theory says, and regardless of how well an approach worked for your friend, sometimes the diet you’re eating just doesn’t suit you. If you […]

The biggest enemies to weight loss programs might not be what you think, and they underline the importance of what I think of as ‘lifestyle factors’ in your weight loss plan too.

The biggest enemies are tiredness and hunger.

Think back to when you last found yourself falling off your program. Were you feeling tired and not in the mood to make a healthy meal, or to go and do your workout? Or perhaps you were hungry and didn’t have enough […]

How often have you found yourself going about your day minding your own business and then BAM. You walk past a delicious smelling bakery or you see or hear someone talk about something yummy they’ve just eaten – and now, that’s all you can think about until you’ve eaten it.

What is it with us humans! It’s like life is designed to make us go against our healthy eating aims!

But actually, it kind of is if you think […]

Do You Believe The Basics Are Enough?

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 […]
