Eat More to Weigh Less!! Do you snack & shop smart?!

 

Eat More to Weigh Less? – That sounds like a contradiction in terms doesn’t it – but it isn’t! Good news huh?!

I have blogged before about how to increase your metabolism and burn more calories, & one of those ways is actually by eatingBUT this doesn’t mean eating what you want, when you want… and this could be where you are going wrong if you’re having problems with your weight management.

You want to keep your metabolism stimulated – this is why NOT skipping breakfast is so important – you are literally breaking your fast from the night before and giving your body the energy it needs to start the day. It requires energy for your body to digest food so having breakfast will help to kickstart your metabolism each day. Beware the cereals though, nearly all of them are full of sugar, even ones that appear to healthy – like some mueslis.

I often hear people say “I just can’t eat breakfast” – rubbish! You have simply trained your body to not want it – what you need to do if this is the case, is snack on, press here…

PHOTOBLOG:- IsoWhey in London, UK Summer 2011

Well, all good things must come to an end as they say! So myself and my trusty companion tub of IsoWhey have returned to the beautiful shores of Australia after a successful trip to Britain. Of course, the latest images from London have not been pretty ones, so I wanted to show you the London that I saw and loved with a PhotoBlog of my visit. IsoWhey is about to take the UK by storm and has been launched there at the Queens Pharmacy (John Bell & Croyen) and I also presented it on “Ideal World”, the home shopping channel in England.

Now the funky new tub of IsoWhey is in every one of these photo’s – but sometimes it’s hidden – see if you can spot it!

Despite strong competition, IsoWhey still stands alone in its quality, taste and variety of healthy natural ingredients, but more importantly its low sugar AND fat AND carb content! Look good and feel great – make it part of your new lifestyle and SEE the difference! – Look out world here comes IsoWhey!!! to see more, press here…

To Supplement or not to Supplement…? (Part Two)

So, I talked in the last blog about basic supplements, and it can be a very daunting experience walking into a health store and seeing the huge array of products available to you – that’s why it’s best to know your stuff, know what you want/need, and get the right quality. You don’t necessarily need the most expensive but if it’s cheap there’s normally a (not too good) reason for that, so beware!

Of course it should be your aim to have a good healthy balanced diet – but most of us realise that that just isn’t going to happen everyday! Even if you think you’re eating healthily, that may not be the case – the soils in which our vegetables are grown are much depleted in the amount of minerals they contain due to years of over use, plus of course we have the chemicals that are everywhere today and being stored in YOUR body. We often put our bodies through such a hard time, especially during early adulthood, we don’t even know what it should feel like to be healthy. Nowadays you can take supplements for most concerns – the top ones worth mentioning are… get healthy, read on…

Supplements – how to choose (Part One)

Supplements – can be defined as a ‘preparation intended to supplement the diet and provide nutrients such as vitamins, fibre & amino acids that may be missing or not found in sufficient quantities in the diet to provide optimal health’. These can be in the form of pills, capsules, tablets, powder or liquid. These have been around for years in their present form, but of course their origin is from nature, so have actually been here for millions of years – unlike manmade (usually toxic) medicines which have not.

There is of course a place for all types of medicine in this world, the unfortunate fact is that MONEY is more important to many people, (& pharmaceutical companies!) especially the people in power, who decide what YOU the consumer can and cannot be told. This is really a big enough topic for a totally separate blog which I will do at a later date, but I have been shocked by the laws which govern the UK health industry (from the EU) – read on, press here…
