Does Cow’s Dairy Leach Calcium From Your Bones?

Does Cow's Dairy Leach Calcium From Your Bones?

The case against cow’s dairy and whether it plays an ‘essential role in our health’, is an age old argument, causing plenty of controversy and a divide amongst health professionals.  To help dispel much of the confusion surrounding cow’s dairy and the role it plays in our diet, I’ve broken down the science for you so you can be clear about the facts on this supposed ‘essential food’ and whether we really need to consume cow’s dairy for strong, healthy bones.

Why The Real Secret To Weight Loss Lies In Your Gut

 Hands up if you’ve ever been on a diet and failed?  Hands up if you’ve ever been on a diet that has lead to you putting on more weight than before you started?  I bet the answer to at least one of these questions is ‘Yes’ and the simple explanation is because diets honestly don’t work, well at least not in the long term for the majority of people.  You see as humans, we’re designed to be pleasure seekers and food is one of the simplest and most satisfying pleasures we can enjoy, so by depriving yourself of food and … Continue reading

Red Meat - to eat or not to eat

  The age old debate over whether humans should eat red meat or not, has divided society for centuries. Whether you choose to eat red meat or not is a very personal decision.  For some avoiding red meat is based on ethical and animal welfare reasons, for others it’s because they simply feel better on a meat free diet, whilst others swear they cannot function without it. The truth is, when it comes to the biochemistry of our bodies, we are all different.  To a certain extent our bodies response to red meat is influenced by our blood type in addition to our microbiome – the bacteria … Continue reading

5 Mistakes People Make Going Gluten Free

  It seems more and more people are going gluten free nowadays, which in my view is GREAT news because of the countless negative effects gluten can have on the digestive system and overall health!  But in an effort to get healthy, I see many people replace gluten with supposedly “healthy” foods, thinking they are on the right track just because a product has a gluten free label!   Food manufacturers are also trying to cash in on the gluten free trend, producing gluten free foods that are often anything but healthy!  So here are the 5 most common mistakes I see … Continue reading

7 Mistakes Paelo lovers make that are harming their health

  There’s no arguing the Paleo diet has taken the world by storm and I’m far more in support of, than against this movement as it shares many of my nutritional philosophies – eating whole, unprocessed foods that are as close to nature as possible, and nothing our ancestors wouldn’t recognise, as well as being gluten and dairy free and low in sugar.  However I find many Paleo enthusiasts get the wrong end of the stick when it comes to some of the Paleo principles.  Here are seven of the most common mistakes I find people make when following a Paleo … Continue reading
