Sugar…To Quit Or Not To Quit

Sugar...To Quit Or Not To Quit

Just a few days after returning from my travels in America, my PA flicked me no less than 96 emails from my readers asking my opinion on a recent ‘sugar war’ that had broken out between a journalist and a nutritionist.  I read the article in question and was some what amused as these sorts of controversies always seem to come round when the latest health  craze is hitting the streets. So I feel compelled to respond to those who have asked about my stance on this argument, not only because so many of you have requested I clear up the confusion, but also because  Sarah Wilson was a client of mine, when she consulted … Continue reading

Why I need to detox…

Why I need to detox...

  So you may recall I have spent the past couple of months gallivanting across America for work, which was all very exciting , but exhausting at the same time, and the travel, combined with the fact I was in America – land of GMO foods and high fructose corn syrup,  certainly posed it’s challenges when it came to sticking to healthy eating.  For me it wasn’t a case of not actively trying to eat healthy food, but rather the fact I was stuck on aeroplanes and in air ports every few days, along with hotels that offered a gluten fest for breakfast each day – … Continue reading

Whatever you do…READ YOUR LABELS people

Whatever you do...READ YOUR LABELS people

I’m currently in the United States for work which means discovering new foods and familiarising myself with new brands.  All too often it’s so easy to pick up a product based on what’s displayed on the front of the pack – and be lured by terms such as  ‘organic, no added sugar, fat free, low GI, non GMO, Gluten Free, dairy free’…. the list is a mile long! But whilst some of these terms may represent a genuinely healthy product, it’s not until you turn to the back label, that you will discover the FULL story about what’s really contained … Continue reading

My Healthy LA Food & Fitness Trail

My Healthy LA Food & Fitness Trail

When I visit a new city, I like to immerse myself in the local food and culture as much as possible, to get a feel for the local way of life, so in the lead up to my trip to LA for work, I have to admit, I was a liiittle bit sceptical about how well LA and I would gell.  I mean let’s face it, LA is more renowned for face lifts and Ferrari’s than the type of down to earth and genuine kind of vibe I prefer to connect with.  BUT….after just a few days in the beach side … Continue reading

Are Your Pain Med’s Causing You Pain?

Are Your Pain Med's Causing You Pain?

  If you’re suffering from chronic pain and have become reliant on pharmaceutical pain medications, such as over the counter anti inflammatories  – known as NSAID’s – non-steroidal antiinflammatory drugs –  like aspirin or ibuprofen, or you’re unlucky enough to have to rely on heavy duty corticosteroid anti inflammatory drugs, such as prednisolone, prednisone and medrol, then chances are your pain could become a product of these medications if you’re taking them regularly. How can pain relieving medications become the cause of pain I hear you ask?  Well quite simply because of the damage they cause to the lining of the small … Continue reading

Yep, Sitting Is The New Smoking!

Yep, Sitting Is The New Smoking!

  For the past 12 months, I have been hard at work on some big projects, that I hope you’re going to love, but there has been a price to pay with all this hard work, in that I have been doing a lot more sitting than usual!  I’ve justified this to myself by saying, “it’s just a temporary change in my work habits”, “it’s not for long”, blah blah blah, but the truth is, we can all make excuses like this to ourselves and get caught in a vicious cycle of ‘putting off today til tomorrow’.  I actually wrote … Continue reading

Why the humble sandwich doesn’t cut it!

Why the humble sandwich doesn't cut it!

  Let’s face it, many of you probably grab a sandwhich for lunch each day, and if your like most,  you probably didn’t make it yourself, but rather picked it up from your local cafe or sandwhich bar.  So what’s wrong with this ‘typical’ lunch?  Well, there are many factors that make the humble sandwich a poor choice.  I know a lot of you may throw your arms at me  for saying this, but before you switch off, take a moment to hear me out. First of all, I want to state that for those of you who buy good … Continue reading
