Not only did you NOT miss out on the deliciousness of Christmas day - including some festive drinkies, but you also managed to drop weight.

Delegating ALL the responsibility to future me

New Year New Me... I'll lose the weight then. It's in the too hard basket to lose weight leading up to Christmas.

So we make the decision that 'next year' will be MY year to lose all my unwanted fat.

But in that decision, we end up 'dumping' all the responsibility on our future selves, and not taking any of that responsibility now - we eat ALL the things at the Christmas parties, we over-indulge at all the festive gatherings - because, well, you know - FUTURE me will take care of it. That's HER problem.

What if there was a solution to taking on a bit of the responsibility now?

Is slow weight loss jeopardising your results?

We have often been taught that a sensible approach to fat loss (you know, slow and steady) is the only healthy way to drop fat.

We're taught that fast weight loss is not sustainable in the long term.

And the thinking behind it goes something like this:

If you lose it fast, you'll gain it back fast.

And NOBODY wants that.

But what if I told the opposite to be true?

What if I told you that slow weight loss may in fact be jeopardising your results, not helping them?

If you've believed the same or similar thoughts, then this podcast is for you.

Enjoy! xx

The Reason Why Losing Weight is so Hard

I have turned my 3 part video series into a podcast for those of you who prefer to listen.

In this episode, we dive into the reasons why weight loss is so difficult. I get it. I've been there. It WAS hard. It's not just you.

If you have experienced yo-yo dieting before, your body is doing exactly what it was programmed to do.

But there is hope - and in this episode I give you tangible steps to take to set you on the path to success.

The Secret to Dieting & Getting around Restriction

Losing fat takes an element of self control. It just does. But full on super restrictive approaches don't work long term.

If I told you not to eat, smell or even look at your FAVOURITE food for the next 6 months, AAAALLLLLLLL you're going to be thinking about is that food, right?

Tell me I can't have something....I want it even more! And you're probably the same.

So what do you do?

If you know that your favourite thing is what is causing you to overeat (because it is so darn yummy and you can't say no), but now you're told you can't think about, look at or even smell it, (what IS with that by the way!), how do you move towards your goal without feeling deprived?

There is an answer. And I share it with you in this minisode today. Enjoy!

Raw Food, Detox Cleanses and Organic. Fact or Fiction?

We are told from our grandparents, our doctors, the latest blog or from 'influencers' that we should eat ONLY raw foods, ONLY organic, ONLY unprocessed, and that detoxing is absolutely necessary.

But this way of thinking is very black and white, and not necessarily the absolute truth.

Today we walk through 5 Nutrition Myths that may actually surprise you.
