I posted on Facebook a while back that perhaps there's a little too much effort going on when it comes to fat loss and people might be missing some quick wins which could be achieved by kicking back a little and simplifying things. When an individual decides they want to change their body composition and focus on getting healthy it often starts off all guns blazing.

I have discussed my transition to a Fitter way of living before and how experienced a huge benefit and never looked back.

It’s nearly Christmas and I'm so looking forward to it! Spending time with loved ones, chilling out and enjoying some of my favourite treats including Yule log, short bread and mulled wine... yum. I can’t lie I'm a sucker for festive treats, they have sentimental value and as I'm just a big kid at heart I don't need much persuading to indulge.

In the final blog of our baking series I’m covering how to 'pimp your baking' and some add extra nutrients.

Are You Listening To Your Body?

20th July 2015

How frequently have you said “it must be my hormones!” because I hear this pretty often from clients, friends and family. We talk about our hormones like they’re some separate entity ticking away inside of us with a mind of their own, completely outside our control.
