I have been working with Rick Hay here in London especially looking at Nutrition and how important it is to be aware of pitfalls when planning your diet. Adding IsoWhey to your daily plan is a great way to start, but bear in mind thew following points to get the full advantage of the IsoWhey program..and see the results!..
Know What you’re eating…
There are some common mistakes that we all often make when it comes to optimum nutrition. If you are able to eliminate most of these whilst on your Anti Ageing and Fitness Transformation you will really turbo charge your weight loss results.
So here are some of the most common pitfalls to good health :
Not eating every three hours
Not including some protein at each meal and after exercise (IsoWhey is ok for the meal replacements)
Not thinking nutient dense rather than empty calories Using a high sugar or high caffeine pick me ups
Not dealing with stress
Eating too quickly and whilst walking etc – not smelling and really tasting and enjoying your food
Not checking labels for hidden sugar e.g in yogurts, health bars, cereals and energy drinks
Not taking a multi vitamin mineral or superfood daily – our soils are often depleted and this is a great way to provide essential vitamins and minerals.
Eating too much meat and too many dairy products.
Not having enough hydration – coconut water is a good option to supplement your fluid intake as are herbal teas.
Not having a varied enough diet – this should include nuts, seeds and colourful foods
Not checking the label of foods
Not keeping a diet diary quaetly for a week so you can see what you are actually doing
Not exercising or chilling out enough
…Choose one or two to focus on each week and you will feel the difference!
It is my pleasure to welcome back my guest blogger – the one and only Janine, IsoWhey chef extraordinaire! Here she is talking about how you can best challenge yourself by ‘going without’ for the month of February! Here we go…
With FebFast approaching, now might be the time to revisit your New Years resolutions,
Christmas is a time each year when we spend more time with family and friends, socialise more and work less – fantastic, yeah? Then why do we also feel so bad about ourselves most years after we have eaten too much, argued again, and seen the scales get out of control! Read More…
After almost 2 years now of blogging all things health & fitness – this Sugar blog has been the ‘most clicked’…so I wanted to re-post it with an editors note: There is now even more scientific evidence regarding the adverse effects of sugar on the human body (from the Australian National University, relating sugar and brain shrinkage, for example). I seem to be aware of more and more people trying to cut sugar out of their diets and this can only be a good thing. But it’s not easy, everytime I go into practically any shop – all I see is Sugar – everywhere, it’s like it taking over the world! Reading the back of ingredients lists you can see how much sugar is in nearly everything – but you CAN make a difference, always check labels, make informed choices and search out low or no sugar products. Also there are Sugar free publications, like Sarah Wilson’s ‘I Quit Sugar’ cookbook – make a difference to your health and fitness – and quit today!…
Sweet, sweet sugar – we love it right? We also know it’s bad for us, right? Yet we continue to use it…right? Read On…
More good news this week – especially for people suffering from Diabetes or who are overweight / obese. A research group from Adelaide (University of SA) has just published a study in the Australian Journal of Nutrition & Metabolism*.
Anyone who has seen “The Hunger Games” movie, or read the book, will know that it is about being in a situation where you have to literally fight for your life – the same may be said for some people trying to deal with either being overweight or obese. Continue Reading..
