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”...

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...

You train hard, you eat clean and you have completely changed your lifestyle but you still aren’t seeing the results you’ve hoped for – does this sound familiar? “Clean eating” is a wonderful thing. You’re providing your body with all the nutrients it needs, strengthening your immune sys...

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...

THE TRUTH BEHIND GRAINS!!!

Unless you’re a celiac or have a gluten intolerance, there’s no reason why you should be avoiding whole grains.

You may remember about 20 years ago when everything on the shelf was “low fat”. Times have changed, and so have our shelves. We are now seeing “low car...

⚠️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...

💁‍♀️I’LL START MONDAY💁‍♂️

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...

NOT EVERY CALORIE IS CREATED EQUAL!

Serotonin is the neurotransmitter responsible for making us feel good. To put it in perspective, a large percentage of anti-depressants on the market are known as SSRI’s (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor). SSRI’s block the reabsorption of serotonin so...

🤷🏻‍♀️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...

Let’s use Mr Clueless Clarke as an example. Mr Clueless Clarke just cannot understand why he’s not losing weight. He makes his way down to Coles or woolies every Sunday and does his regular grocery shop. In his trolley he’s got an abundance of all the “good” stuff (or so he thinks)! Everyt...

“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?! 😍

But even for the “best” trackers who are glued to their food diary, m...

Supplements, bars and powders are a multi million dollar industry, and growing rapidly every minute of every day. With so many options out there, how do you know what to choose?

Best advice, don’t. Just eat real food. And by real, we don’t mean a packet of tim tams. We mean whole, unprocessed...

🍹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 important to be mindful whether you’re on vacatio...

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:

A patient at the hospital goes in for surgery. When do you think the doctor will administer pain killers? Right when the patient starts feeling pain, hours after they wake up? No, they will administer pain killers 3 hours before the pati...

Vegetables, noodles, and protein... how bad can it be? Pretty bad. HEAPS of cheap oil, fatty meat and low quality noodles. And maybe a palm-ful of veggies. Remember, restaurants have to make a profit too- don’t count on them using premium ingredients. Not only that, they want you to come back. Tha...

Low carb, Atkins, keto, paleo, whole 30, gluten free, dairy free, vegan, vegetarian.... how overwhelming!!🤦🏻‍♀️

Man made "diets" are really making things difficult for those who are on a journey to a healthier life. We need to go back to the basics.⏰
