A massive change for one client

I could write so many different stories about each client, as they all have had their own amazing journey. I was coming home from a much needed spa day when I got a message from a client. Whilst I was at the spa I thought about different things. I thought a lot about where I wanted to take my different ventures. Every single one of the clients I have worked with or working with now inspire me every day. The texts or emails I receive are amazing…. So I wanted to share this one with you, which gave me my reasons and answer to a lot of my questions I had at the spa that day.

This client is currently on the Nutrition Coaching, came to me and we talked a lot about “WHY”. This person had and is coping with depression and has it now, from that she had picked up other health issues, which was creating a never ending circle. Please tell this person well done once you have read her message.

“”I can’t believe it Matt, Best thing I done was to look on yr page, I feel great !!! I did find it hard the first few days but now I can’t believe how easy it is! I don’t crave for sugar as much, which has surprised me because that was my downfall! Didn’t even have many headaches which I usual do when i do a diet.
Can’t thank you enough! My family are so happy for me especially the way I’ve been.
Now I can exercise never thought I would look forward to exercise haha but can’t wait to get on my treadmill and by the way I have lost 1 stone in 2 weeks””
Can’t thank you enough

This is why I do it… Well done to this person !!

I need to change.

Clients that have worked with me get to see my passion for nutrition. I feel myself sitting on the edge of seat and my talking rate goes through the roof. One subject I enjoy explaining is about inflammation. Here is a quick fire explanation of what you are doing to your health when you are constantly eating bad toxins.    If you’re consistently eating foods that cause a low-grade allergic reaction or contain lots of toxins, your immune system is constantly kicking into gear, That immune response is, by its very nature, inflammatory, because it has to produce lots of proteins (called antibodies) and chemical agents to fight off invaders. Which is what you want them doing—just not all the time.  

That leads to a chronic state of low-level inflammation, which can cause all sorts of problems. Think acne, migraines and weight gain in the short term, with heart disease further down the road.
Just to finish…. If you would like to make a change, where ever you in the UK, we can make a difference to your health, your weight more important the quality of your life. Read this and contact me

Hormone Balancing Foods

IMG_1743

Kale – This trendy vegetable is full of Vitamins A, K, B6 and C as well as minerals like manganese, copper and calcium. Combined with fiber and potent antioxidants, this leafy green is a force to be reckoned with. These factors will reduce mood swings, painful cramping, bloating and water retention. Kale can be enjoyed in salads, smoothies, soups and more.
  
Spirulina – This blue-green algae comes from lakes and ponds and contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium and potassium. These essential hormone-balancing nutrients will reduce cramps, mood problems, breast tenderness and overall inflammation. Also reported to reduce blood sugar problems, spirulina attacks hormonal imbalance at a major root cause.

  
Coconut oil (and all coconut products for that matter) – It contains lauric acid, which is incredibly healing to the skin and extremely beneficial for hormonal production. It also kills bad bacteria and viruses in the body, provides a quick source of energy, is easy to digest, and speeds up metabolism.

Egg yolks – They’re rich in countless vitamins and minerals including: A, D, E, B2, B6, B9, iron, calcium, phosphorous, potassium and choline which all contribute to a healthy reproductive system, hormonal balance, and healthy skin

What is Online nutrition coaching?

I get so many enquiries from people all over the country. So it made made sense to keep up with the times and go online, (still keeping face to face nutrition coaching and Metabolic Balance® ) The online nutrition coaching is electronic based contact but still having that personal touch. Great for when you want the results but live far from where I am based. I have always been one for good old fashioned face to face. It’s important for customer experience.

I’ll give you the nutritional foundation, knowledge, and tools to help you find a new found love of food. You’ll learn to have a relationship with nutrition, not an obsession. It’s all about being realistic, no one eats perfectly all the time and I don’t expect you to.

What do you need to do ? 

Where to start is the hardest, some know where to start, but don’t get results. I will give you everything you need. All i need from you is a promise that you will try your best. Leave the rest to me !

Need more sleep ?

sleep

I get so many requests for tips on improving lifestyle. I wish I could answer every one. So what I’m continuing to do is write more blog posts like this one. This is about how we all can get better sleep. I understand that its not that easy, if kids have a bad routine and end up jumping into your bed or you might work shifts. Please try this tips as it might just help a little…

Things that could be effecting Sleep…

– Small changes that could help, for example the amount of light getting in to your bedroom. Try to black out all light in the room.

– The temperature in the room, keep things cool as possible because your body temperature heats up under the covers and if its warm within the your bedroom you will become restless.

– More health related issues could be issues like Hypoglycaemia (glucose deficiency) which is more common with insomnia. Sleep apnoea (interrupted breathing) even depression can effect your ZZZZ`s

There are so many reasons why your sleep can be good or bad…. Here are some ways to help.

– Exercise, a big one which will help, boosting endorphins that may help mellow out your nerves and anxiety.

– Avoid stimulants, coffee, teas and the sugary drinks will all interrupt your sleep up to 24 hours. so if you are losing hours eliminate them.

– Booze and large dinners – large meals in the evening can interrupt the sleep cycle and loose the booze.

– My passion and favourite, eat the right foods, (remember, get booked in with me to benefit with weeks) Melatonin is the hormone we need to regulate our sleeping cycles. So we need to help the hormones through the food your putting in. Eggs, sesame seeds, chicken, cashew nuts almonds and chickpeas.

You`ll sleep well if you share this with friends… ZZZ !!

Do we have to be positive every minute of the day, can we not just be negative some days. Some weeks are better than others, right. Do you find that sometimes just one little negative thought can just knock your day then everything is against you. All around us everyday there are messages telling us that we should be positive, “Have an amazing day”, “Go out there and show the world what your made of”. For everyone that knows me I am one for all that, because surely that’s why we are here, right? Surely we don’t just have to get up each day go to work, pay bills, then back to bed. While we are here why don’t we do the things we dream of and live a life we say we would like.

I’ve learnt so much about myself lately in every part of my life, I made some shit decisions, I’ve let people down, I’ve upset people. I spend so much time worrying about  the shit decisions, the people I have let down……. Should I worry? Is that the person I am?……. Where am I going with all the questions and thoughts?

One of the things I have learnt about myself is that its OK to have negative thoughts, when we look at our lives all around us there are opposites. Hot and cold, light and dark, up and down, left and right, right and wrong, good and evil. So having negative thoughts is normal, as normal as having the positive thoughts. Treat your negative thoughts as an normal everyday event, its fine!!

Think about it, as I said earlier every day we are bombarded by the positive quotes, be happy, smile every day even if you down”…. So what happens when we hit a stone in the road. If we are constantly up there 24/7 we have to come down at some point. Don`t teach your mind to be up there every day. When we think of other negative emotions like crying or anger. We were always told not to cry as “only babies cry” OR we were always told not to be angry it will upset people. WRONG !!

Crying is a normal natural emotion, I say let it out, It will give you that balance your body and mind needs. Anger…. Get it out, its another natural emotion. How good do you feel after a cry or an outburst ?

So, a negative thought is OK, you will always get them, just roll with them, don’t force the negative feeling away with a positive one, just be aware of it, question the thought why is it there, where did it come from.

Remember all the opposites around you, Positive and negative go hand in hand…. “Just have the day you have” – If you liked this please share or re-tweet, Thank you.

Let’s face it, sometimes there’s nothing better at the end of a long day than a glass of wine. But sipping much more than that can wreak havoc with your shape, and not just by adding hundreds of calories to your diet. Alcohol temporarily keeps your body from burning fat, The reason is that your body can’t store calories from alcohol for later, the way it does with food calories. So when you drink, your metabolic system must stop what it’s doing (like, say, burning off calories from your last meal) to get rid of the booze.
Drinking presses ‘pause’ on your metabolism, shoves away the other calories, and says, ‘Break me down first!'” The result is that whatever you recently ate gets stored as fat.
What’s worse is, Research has uncovered that alcohol especially decreases fat burn in the belly, That’s why you never hear about ‘beer hips,’ you hear about a ‘beer belly.'”
So can we ever enjoy a drink without putting on pounds? Absolutely.
