Believe it or not, social media really gets on my tits. If I didn’t use Facebook for my business, you can be sure as hell that I would have deactivated it by now, along with Twitter, Snapchat and everything else that’s hidden away in the ‘Social’ folder on my iPhone. But Instagram is a completely different […]

Testimonial from Lorna

too busy

“I’m too busy to exercise…”If I had £1.00 for every time someone said to me ‘I don’t have time to exercise’, I would be very rich indeed. To me, exercising is a necessary part of living a happy, healthy life and I can’t imagine not exercising most days, or at least making a conscious effort to […]

Weekend Binge

Has your over indulgence at the weekend left you feeling guilty, exhausted and a bit annoyed with yourself?

Fat

Along with carbohydrates, fat has really gotten itself a bad reputation over the last 40 years or so, which is a shame because it has done a lot of damage to the way we view food. Fat, like protein and carbohydrate, is a macronutrient and is essential for our health. Contrary to popular belief, you […]

Carbs

If I was a carbohydrate (and if I was, I’d probably be Glucose, coz I like to act fast), I would be feeling a little bit unloved. L Carbohydrates have taken some major criticism in the last decade or so, leaving us human beings completely confused as to whether we should be eating them or […]

Protein is something that I get asked about a lot – and quite rightly so. It is probably the only macronutrient that actually gets some positive press. Poor carbohydrates and fat getting a bad rep whilst protein takes centre stage for actually helping you to lose weight… or does it? In this blog I will […]

Anxiety is something I have lived with for the best part of a decade. It used to prevent me from going out, prevent me from socialising with friends and family, prevent me from going on holiday, going to work, going to the gym, and even prevent me from going to the local shop for a […]
