Four Easy Stress Recovery Steps

22nd November 2015

It's been a pretty busy couple of months at Fitter Food headquarters (aka Matt's teenage bedroom since we moved back in with his Mum). We've been running on adrenalin, coffee and Quest bars for a few weeks to make sure our book is ready for Christmas and we also ran our final Fitter Food Academy this weekend.  We are fully aware of the damaging effects chronic stress has on our body, so now our biggest projects are done and dusted it's time for both of us to thank our bodies for powering us through and invest back a little TLC.

3 Things That Got Me Through The Most Stressful Week

8th November 2015

This week is certainly up there as one of the most stressful I've had all year. The deadline to get our book to the printers is this Friday. With recipe testing, editing, referencing, macronutrient information and image design to finish, my 'to do' list went way beyond overwhelming at times. Running a business I've been here before and luckily I've made time to develop coping mechanisms that enable me to nail these projects without letting my health suffer in the process. I thought I would share with you 3 things that really helped me over the last few days when the going got really tough.

The Most Effective Fat Loss Strategy Starts Here

3rd November 2015

At Fitter Food we've been in the industry a good few years now and had the opportunity to work with thousands of individuals both in person and online. We have helped people of all shapes and sizes with very different starting points, different goals and barriers to progress. This experience has allowed us to develop different strategies and approaches to ensure people get results, however, they all have one thing in common and start in the same place.

5 Hassle Free Steps To Burn More Fat

25th October 2015

It’s no secret that here at Fitter Food we prefer the simple life, we don’t like to cause ourselves unnecessary stress and overcomplicate things. This applies to our training, nutrition and lifestyle choices. Often this approach to fat loss may fall on deaf ears because many people believe fat loss can't be simple and needs to involve complicated formula's and fancy products to get results.

5 Lessons From Dubai about Health, Happiness & Fat Loss

6th October 2015

As you may or may not know, we've recently been in Dubai spreading the Fitter Food message with the help of Talise Fitness. Alongside some training sessions we've been coaching the folks over there about gut health, sleep, stress and hormone optimisation. A truly amazing bunch of people showed up and we had an awesome time chatting with them all about their health journeys. When I travel and have new experiences I am often reminded about some key factors that support optimal health, nothing revolutionary necessarily but rather gentle reminders of things that make me smile and enhance my health. I thought I'd share them with you all in this weeks blog.

5 Daily Habits To Transform Hormone Health

13th September 2015

Hormone health is frequently talked about across the health and fitness industry. It's certainly significant and we do a lot to educate people about how hormones work and how they may impact upon your health goals. However, I frequently see people fly off immediately to get tests done, buy expensive supplements and start posting in Facebook groups for help as a first point of call.

Stop Wasting Time On Fat Loss

7th September 2015

Whenever I ask clients or Fitter Foodies about their top goals, you can guarantee fat loss figures somewhere in the list. For many people it's their No.1 goal, whilst others might speak of health priorities like "fix my bloating" or "improve energy levels" but there is always an added "oh and lose a few pounds" somewhere in the conversation too. The problem with these fat loss goals is you're almost doomed to fail from the start! Here's why!

4 ‘Stress Less’ Investments

4th August 2015

We often talk about the benefits of reducing stress in our lives. Whilst some acute stress is beneficial and needed from time-to-time (e.g. elevated cortisol is a must in the morning as it gets us out of bed ready to attack the day), these days stress is all around us. Too many people are suffering from chronic stress which increases fat storage, ruins our thyroid and negatively impacts our hormones, not to mention makes us feel pretty crappy. Oh and if you want to build muscle whilst excessively stressed, good luck!

5 Steps To Get Your Mojo Back

6th July 2015

There's something I want to share with you guys. Even though life may often look hunky dory for Matt and I, it’s actually been a bit of a rough year for us. Just like many of you we've had our fair share of personal and work related issues that have really impacted our outlook on life. At times it's felt like ‘one thing after another’ is going wrong and we've questioned our ability to cope. When lots of events beyond your control take place life can quickly became frightening and overwhelming.

Feeling Frazzled Or Losing The Plot?

19th March 2015

Last week we were feeling a little tired and run down and noticed just how much it impacted upon our passion and productivity. Of course we still got stuff done but we just didn’t seem to enjoy it as much as we usually do. This coincided with us watching Ruby Wax’s new play Sane New World about mindfulness - it couldn’t have been timed better and resulted in us taking a step back and making some life changing decisions! If you’re in a similar position here are a few bits of advice that might just inspire you to do the same.

Depression: Nutrition And Natural Measures

13th August 2014

This week the world was deeply saddened by the loss of another talented and inspirational individual. When we contemplate the life of Robin Williams many will remember him as a character in one of their favourite films - often hilarious and outrageous. We likely imagined his successful Hollywood career was accompanied by a life filled with laughter, fun, adventure and happiness.
