Sleep is too often underrated, yet it is very often a missing piece of the health and fitness jigsaw.

You might not realise it, but often a lack of sleep is the thing which pulls you off your healthy eating course since your body sends you looking for pick-me-ups to keep you going all day.

Likewise, it is pretty likely that the reason you can’t drag yourself out of bed to get a workout done before work is nothing […]

I’m not exactly sure how, but it seems like Christmas is nearly here!

In fact, it looks like it has arrived in quite a few places already – isn’t it lovely seeing all the decorations up earlier this year.

This year has been, amongst other things, interesting. From a health and fitness perspective, we’ve had to challenge the way we thought things might be in different situations.

We often used to say, decisively, that if we only had more time […]

There are some things which one needs to take into consideration when trying to lose weight. They can be seen as pretty inconvenient and can make the road both harder and easier at the same time.

The first is that you have to take action. Waiting for the right moment, waiting for the motivation to strike or holding out for a clear spell in your diary are all ways of not taking action.

Action doesn’t happen because the stars have lined […]

It’s probably not news that there are certain things in life that we can control, and certain things that we can’t control.

Things you can control are obvious – like what clothes you wear – and things you can’t control are obvious too – like the weather.

But whether you’re in control of some things, especially those relating to changing your lifestyle, can be seen as a matter of opinion.

Think about the results you would like to achieve in terms […]

Good morning!
What a glorious morning it is, just as the world is being turned back on it’s head again!

I think most of us are feeling somewhat deflated, and especially now the days are getting shorter, it’s going to take effort to keep the positive state of mind going.

Working on maintaining a positive mindset can help to carry you through difficult times and help you be more resilient to stress. It’s something I discuss with clients regularly […]

Please do go and watch the videos if you haven’t already. If nothing else, they are a pretty accurate documentation of the remarkable amount of coldsores I’ve had over the last few months!

Likewise, would you like me to make some videos with different, or supplementary, content to these newsletters? Perhaps cooking videos and maybe some workout ones too?

So, the Covid rollercoaster continues, and now the weather is less cheerful, I think we all need to be paying a […]

Since we were all embarked on this Covid rollercoaster, I have been only offering online coaching.

It was something which started as a necessity, but, as I’ve said repeatedly; online coaching works an awful lot better than anyone expected. So much so that several of my long term clients have discovered that online coaching is something they would prefer to stick with rather than returning to face-to-face coaching.

Working with new clients without ever meeting face-to-face was […]

I always think it’s surprising just how many calories we can drink. Not because it really ought to be a surprise, but because drinks just don’t feel like they should be all that full of calories. I’m not even just talking about alcoholic drinks!

Let’s look at some not-water drinks you might have during the day:

Orange juice with breakfast – 100 calories for 250ml

Coffee shop coffees – a standard ‘tall’ latte is 181 calories, even if you […]

As we start to hurtle towards the winter, and cold season, I thought it would be a good idea to write about boosting your immune system.

The two biggest areas to focus your attention on in order to boost your immune system are gut health, and stress management.

Over 70% of your immune system is located in your gut. So, keep your gut happy by keeping junky food or things which don’t agree with you to a minimum, and instead make […]

I’ve recorded this email as a video as well. You can find it on Facebook or Instagram.

Have you heard these ‘facts’ before?

“Eating small meals is best for energy, and helps you stay less hungry”

or

“If you don’t eat often enough, your body will go into starvation mode and store more fat”

Are they true?

Is it better to eat smaller meals more often, or bigger meals with longer breaks between?

Definitely: not true. There are no studies to show that eating smaller meals more often leads to an improved outcome, and the calorie-sparing effects […]
