Omega 3 and 6 are considered essential fats – i.e. fat that you need to eat because your body cannot make it itself. Yet, the focus is always on omega 3 – why is that?

Omega 6 intake needs to be considered less because it is found in things we tend to eat a lot of anyway.

Any type of ready made food is likely to be high in omega 6, since vegetable oils are both high in omega 6 and are in […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Should You Eat Small Meals More Often – Or Full Meals Less Often?

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 […]

So. Boris wants us all to join him on his quest to lose weight. Excellent! We have massive problems in this country with obesity and related health issues.

At last the attention of the country is on improving our health and fitness with the intention of improving our health and resilience rather than simply focussing on getting slimmer.

I’m hopeful that this may pave the way for more programs designed with health, resilience and longevity in mind, and less fad-type diet and exercise programs.

Boris has also been talking about how you don’t need a gym to […]

There seem to be various numbers floating around, but apparently the average person has gained 0.6 stone during lockdown. That’s just shy of 4kg!

Apparently a third of us have gained significantly more than this too, and some of the numbers floating around are from over a month ago!

It sounds like a LOT of weight to gain doesn’t it. But, let’s break it down.

Of course there is way more to this, but it’s said that […]
