Nutrition Challenge: I CBA to Plan Meals

It’s no secret that I have struggled with meal planning. In times of high stress, it’s always the first thing to get binned off for me.  In fact, you could probably take a pretty good inventory of my current stress level at any given time by opening my fridge and seeing how out of date […]

Beginner’s Guide: Actually Executing Your Meal Prep

One of the most overlooked parts of meal prep for the week is how you actually sit down and execute your plan. People ignore this when they set their intentions for the week because they feel confused and overwhelmed about how it can fit into their lives. That’s why I am taking all the confusion […]

Trigger foods

What are they? A trigger food is something that you eat (or drink) and struggle to control yourself. Once you start eating it, you find it difficult to stop and as a result you’re prone to eating more of it than you wanted to. With trigger foods, it’s common to eat more than you intended, […]

Staying Full on a Diet

This morning’s workshop on nutrition was requested by a member who had been dieting for a while, but struggled to feel full on the foods she was choosing. When she started to feel hungry, she’d overeat and that made it difficult for her to achieve her weight loss goals. The request came in last week. […]

“I can’t stop emotionally eating!” If this is you, you aren’t alone. Around 60% of my clients list this as a “major challenge”, with over 50% saying they have “intense cravings” and “snack when not hungry”. This doesn’t just mean when things are negative either. Celebrations and social events are emotional too.  The goal is […]

Give Yourself Permission To Grow

“I’m not the sort of person who…” Fill in the blank.  “…is good at maths.” “…is comfortable with public speaking.” “…is into exercise.” As adults, who we are can sometimes feel set in stone and too established to change. We have made a decision about who we are – and who we are not – […]

Your Diet Isn’t Your Identity

”Yeah, I’m doing keto and I’ve lost 8lbs.” 1. If you’re only “doing keto” during the week, and you’re increasing carbs on weekends, you’re almost certainly not in ketosis. You’re just in a perpetual state of feeling shitty, never working through that rough patch and making it out the other side. 2. Even if you […]

“You can’t out train a bad diet” – I’ll help you with diet too!

I’m taking away the Saturday spin class, and replacing it with an educational class on nutrition. Here’s why I think this is important: Every single time I poll my in person clients, they report that their diet gives them more difficulty than what they do in the gym. When they’re working out – I’m with […]

Training with intensity – stop faffing about!

Several times a week, I conduct in person classes which are performed at high intensity. In a CrossFit environment, people really get what this is meant to feel like. That 100% max out on the air bike that leaves your legs like jelly. The slam ball finisher which leaves you feeling your pulse in your […]
