We’ve all been there. For whatever reason, some kind of off-track food catches your eye and you can think of nothing else until you’ve eaten it. It might not even be something you especially love, but still – we all know it’s only a matter of time before it has been eaten.

Then, the usual course of action follows: shame and guilt followed by laying out a new (probably stricter) set of rules that you should live by. Which […]

For some reason, exercise seems to be put into a different category than many other things in life and we expect every workout to be a good one. We think that if we are working out regularly, we should be better every time. And if we are not better then often we decide that it is ‘obviously not working’ and that we should just quit.

But the truth we have to accept is that some days (or even weeks) you’re not […]

It is all too easy to spend all day sitting these days, yet most of us want to maintain our health and fitness – and still be able to fit into our ‘nice clothes’ when this is all over!

General movement, which we largely used to achieve without a conscious plan, now needs to be intentionally added into our day – and the time needs to be strictly guarded!

Before we were stuck at home, regardless of what structured exercise we were doing, it […]

Try putting these three simple ideas into place, and notice the changes you can make to your body with relatively little effort – or pain!

Make your goal to eat at least 1g protein per kg body weight, every day.
This simple act will boost your satiety, and help reduce cravings.
When you start to actually count your protein intake, you’ll realise that it’s quite a lot to get through in a day – it will leave you very little […]

Although they might sound similar, I feel there is a big difference between being disciplined and being motivated when you’re working towards your goals.

Motivation is FEELING LIKE doing what you need to do. You’ll know the feeling of motivation doesn’t last long. And often, the expectation is that motivation comes from an external source – like reading a book, or working with a personal trainer.

Self discipline is about DECIDING to make certain choices – and sticking with them regardless […]

Happy New Year!

I hope you had a lovely, if strange, Christmas.

I, for one, am in need of a few weeks of eating well. There’s something about Christmas which makes us feel like we’re not correctly celebrating if we don’t eat too much or drink too much. We make choices we wouldn’t make at any other time of the year. In fact, I’ve seen some interesting numbers about that; apparently we are less satisfied with ‘normal […]

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 […]

Does A Different Christmas Mean You’ll Eat Differently?

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 […]
