Over the last 7 years I have made this observation – so many of us want to lose weight, have more energy, sleep better, feel better.  Be healthy!! I have also observed that we aren’t really prepared to make the necessary changes in order to get that.  We want it yesterday and we want it...

That’s a bold statement when, as I write this, kiwifruit are selling at over $7/kg.  But hear me out. I can write about this because I do it.  I have lived it, even in times of uncertainty, on a very low budget, and living week to week.  I still keep a low budget for the...

Our bodies are AMAZING organisms. So why do so many of us continue to treat them so poorly? Is it a lack of knowledge?  I don’t think so, we all know that we should be eating “healthy” foods and “exercising” but even as I write that I realise how boring and mundane that sentence sounds. ...

The older I get the more I learn.  And the more I want to share.  Currently I am learning more about the mind body connection in relation to pain.  There are so many people who are living with chronic illness. Today I want to write about what I have learned about the impact of our...

That’s a scary thought isn’t it?  How frustrating is it when your body won’t respond the way you want it to?  Why does it keep storing fat cells?  Why don’t I have energy?  Why does everything seem so hard??? Here is the thing.  Our bodies will respond to the environment that we put them in....

Is calorie counting outdated?  The basic premise is that if you are trying to lose weight then on a daily basis you should be consuming less calories than your body burns.  Then with the power of the compound effect, you will lose weight over a period of time. I’ve done it before.  In my 20’s...
