Let’s start by saying… the statistics are bleak and we don’t think that’s a huge secret. According to a study conducted by the University of Scranton, just 8 per cent of people achieve their New Year’s goals, while around 80 per cent fail to keep their New Year’s resolutions. Roughly 55...

Starving children in Africa. Holocaust victims who went weeks, months without food. Google some photos of these... well actually, don’t. Because it’s very sad (with all due respect to these people 🙏). They are skin and bones. That’s what “not eating enough” looks like.

What “not eating enough”...

Are you an abstainer or a moderator?

It seems as if every day there is a new headline floating around the web about the “best diet” or “foods to avoid” or “best fat burning foods”. It can become very overwhelming and confuse those of us who are trying to reach our health and fitness goals.

😱😱😱 THE DREADED SCALE 😱😱😱

We’ve all experienced it before...the thrill of seeing the scale drop by 2kg’s in a week, only to be followed by the disappointment of it going up by 1kg the next week.

Scales tend to be most people’s go to measurement when we attempt to measure our fat loss. This is...

In our last post, we touched on something that we like to call “creepy” calories. Creepy calories are the calories that mindlessly go unacknowledged in our day-to-day life. Some of us spend 5-6 days a week at the gym, yet we are unable to see results from all that hard work. Could mindless snack...

Little pickers are bound to wear bigger knickers!

What you see in this image would be classified as pretty healthy food. It’s so often that we hear “I eat healthy but I’m not losing weight, and I exercise so much!” Healthy or not, the laws of thermodynamics will never change. A calorie, si...

Alright. We gotta talk about this folks.

If you don’t know about the study done in the UK about how people tend to under-report what they’re eating, let us summarize for you.

4000 men and women were asked to count their calorie intake for a period of time. On average, the SELF REPORTED figures f...

Crash diets are designed to achieve a quick loss of weight. Unfortunately most of this weight loss is not the desired loss of body fat. It is mainly the loss of water and muscle tissue. As soon as you eat properly again, the water comes straight back but the loss of muscle is less forgiving. Muscle...

⚠️ARE YOU SELF AWARE?⚠️

Bounce balls vs. kit Kat. Same amount of calories and one is really not that much more nutritious than the other. But isn’t it funny how one has a “healthy” connotation and the other is known as “junk food”?

The bounce ball. If someone has weight to lose, the chances of a...

Yes, you will. And you’ll probably eat about 10,000 calories the night before because A. “It’s your last chance to enjoy yourself” or B. You are emptying out all the cupboards into your body in hopes of all temptation being out of the house by Monday. (PS. Use the...

MACRONUTRIENT AWARENESS 👀

Coconut yogurt is a dairy free alternative to its cow milk counterpart. How does it taste? Yeah pretty good! But I think anything with 21 grams of fat per 100 grams would be yummy!

This little container (very sneakily tweaked on the nutrition label, I might add - per 10...

The amount of diets out there is overwhelming. What ever happened to the “balanced” diet? You know the one where you eat mostly whole foods, learn how to eat clean with variety and treat your self MINDFULLY once in a while without blowing out. You know, the lifestyle change that can be sustained...

🍫ARE YOU READY TO ENJOY TREAT FOODS IN MODERATION?!🍩

Our philosophy when it comes to diet is 90% clean, whole foods with an allowance to treat yourself every now and then. This is what we tell all our clients with hopes that they know how to moderate that last 10 percent.

The 90% part is actuall...

Is the cheeky sarcasm from the image obvious? 😁

These are statements that probably aren’t going to get you bursting through our door, right? However, if we were to advertise “LOSE 10 KILOS IN 8 WEEKS”, we’d be overflowing with people!! Right??

Look, we’ve had clients who have lost 50 kg in a y...

🤷🏻‍♀️I ONLY HAD ONE AT WORK🤷🏻‍♂️

Mmmhmmmm. First of all, we know it’s never “just one”. Let’s be honest with ourselves here.

You’re trying your best to diet but that salad you had for lunch hasn’t done anything to fill you up. You didn’t eat all morning in hopes of shaving off those extra...

⚠️FOCUS ON THE BIG PICTURE⚠️

If you are on a fat loss journey, you’ve got to keep it simple. The reason why you have gained weight, or can’t lose weight is NOT because you aren’t drinking the right kind of milk. It’s not because the carrots you’re eating are too high in sugar. It’s not...

Before we start, we aren’t saying which one you should choose, or that one is “better” than the other. This is simply to demonstrate how marketing can skew our perception of food intake. The “healthy” place is almost 400 calories more than the one that is demonized for being unhealthy. The...

Alright, if you haven’t heard it enough from us already- let’s talk weekends. This is typically the highest margin of error for most of our clients. Understandably, we are human- we are social beings and nowadays, social events are associated with food and drink.

However, if weight loss is your go...

“Ok I had cake but the rest of it was pretty healthy!” 😬

If this is your mindset, you’re likely setting yourself up for failure if weight loss is your goal. You must be realistic. You must be honest with yourself. Social situations are very difficult, especially when there’s plenty of food to...

Do you suffer from food amnesia?

It happens, we are human- we are definitely not trying to scold you, we just want to help you become more aware. Like let’s be honest, how tempting is it to lick the peanut butter spoon?! 😍

The scale – that darn, dreaded scale. Some days it’s our best friend and some days it’s our worst enemy. The scale can be a good way to track progress, so don’t toss it out the window quite yet. However, it is NOT the be-all-end-all of tracking your weight progression.

But why?

There are several...

🍹CHEEKY COCKTAILS 🍹

It’s about that time of year! It’s getting cold in Australia and we are heading to our favourite tropical destination to escape the weather. During these times, we tend to kick back, relax and lose track of ourselves.

It’s easy to overeat even the healthiest of meals. Especially with protein. Somehow we think that overeating protein is a good thing, it goes straight to the muscle! Well wouldn’t that be nice! The muscle will take as much as it needs, then the rest will be stored as fat. A good standard is to e...

If you take anything away from this post, take this analogy:

CONSISTENCY ☝🏽

We can’t use this word enough. Whether you’re trying to gain weight, lose weight, lower your blood pressure or just get fitter..... you must stay CONSISTENT to see results.

The most common thing we hear when it comes to weight loss is “I’m good during the week, but struggle on...

Yes people...WEEKEND CALORIES COUNT!!!

We see this all the time and we can't stress enough how important consistency is.

So we go ahead and calculate...

Well hello Paula Pickalot, you must be friends with Candace Cantloseweight. If not, let me introduce you because you have a lot of things in common. You both don’t eat enough, you both subconsciously compensate for your lack of input by mindlessly inducing extra calories, and you are both in denia...

Uma Unprepared exercises 5 days a week and swears that, although she doesn’t have time to prepare, she still makes healthy choices during her work day. However, she’s been steadily gaining weight. Living in denial, she swears it must just be muscle mass even though her pants are getting tighter...

Ah yes, Candace Cantloseweight. Our favourite. Under eating during the week, overeating on the weekends. This is a classic situation we see far too often. Now you’re probably thinking a few things- the first one is “Yeah ok I enjoy myself on the weekends but there’s NO WAY I eat 5000 calories!...

Read your labels! This particular item, according to the packet is "vegan, sugarless, dairy free, gluten free and guilt free".

Continuing on with our "we love fruit" series, today we present to you the grapefruit!

Grapefruit is a very refreshing way to start your day although it's often overlooked due to having a slightly bitter taste. We are very lucky here in Australia as this fruit is available almost year round.

Let's talk fruit 🍌

Something we hear often is that people avoid fruit because it's high in sugar and it makes you fat. Yes, fruit does contain fructose and glucose. However, the way sugar in fruit is metabolized is completely different than refined table sugar.

First let's make one thing clear -...
