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 !!

F**K `em

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.

Boost your moods

IMG_1360

Boosting your moods can be done in so many ways, why not try it through food.

Take a look at the list of seven delicious foods below that you should consider adding to your diet today:

1. Watermelon
Watermelon is a refreshing fruit that is bursting with key vitamins and minerals. For years it has been linked to lifting depression and balancing hormones, and its rich water content and natural electrolytes rehydrate and reduce irritability.
2. Turkey 
Turkey is one of the best mood-boosting foods as it contains high levels of the amino acid, tryptophan. This stimulates the production of serotonin (a feel-good hormone). Turkey also features the chemical element selenium, which is thought to help prevent anxiety and depression.
3. Eggs 
Rich in healthy proteins – which help to balance your blood sugar and stabilise your appetite – eggs are a great choice for making you feel more content (not to mention fuller for longer). They also contain a variety of amino acids, which can lift your mood, help you to feel less stressed, and allow you to fall asleep more easily.
4. Ginger
Ginger has been used for centuries in Chinese medicine to help treat emotional problems and low mood. Research has also shown that it has a calming effect and can help to relieve aches and pains that may be contributing to bad moods.
5. Natural yoghurt
This creamy delight is packed with calcium which is thought to aid restful sleep, and has been linked to lowering stress hormones found in the blood. A recent study also showed that the probiotics found in live yogurt may alter brain chemistry, helping to treat stress and low mood.
6. Strawberries
Berries are known to be rich in antioxidants which can boost energy levels and help protect the body from stress. Strawberries though also contain manganese and B vitamins, which can help balance mood and provide a natural source of energy.
7. Dark chocolate 
OK so it’s not as creamy as milk chocolate, but dark chocolate is far more valuable to our health and mood as it is choc-full of flavonoids. These have been shown to reduce stress hormones in the bloodstream.

One BIG belly

fries

Here are some foods that will make you feel so bloated you wont eat them again, “will you”??

Bagels – Most bagels are actually made from 100% refine flour, do they taste nice, Ill let you decide, that refined flour sets off negative events of elevated blood sugar, elevated insulin levels, and increased belly fat storage. (not good)

bagels

Cabbage – Yes it is good for us BUT, Cabbage is a vegetable known for increasing gas production in the gastrointestinal tract during digestion. And this increased gas production can bloat your belly, a good tip though, Give it a good cooking.

0614_cabbage011

Coke – Common sense on this one guys, yes its terrible for you and a lot of the bloating comes from the carbonated sodas,

As well as the carbonation that increases gas in the stomach (which causes immediate belly bloat), the sugar in cola can make that temporary bloat turn into a permanently larger belly! Depending on the cola, it may contain sugar, corn syrup, or another liquid sweetener. All of these sweeteners have the same long-term effect: increased fat storage right in your abdominal area.

High sugar content, especially in liquid form, immediately raises blood sugar, which in turn spikes insulin levels. This elevated insulin level signals your body to begin storing the excess sugar as fat. And, of course, your body places it in the easiest and most convenient location: your belly.

Diet soda isn’t the answer.

cola

Deep Fried Foods – Commercially fried foods often contain the most dangerous of all fats: trans fats. These fats in even small amounts have been linked to many negative health effects (such as heart disease). They can also significantly elevate inflammation in your body.

fries

Rice – White rice digests rapidly in your body, creating that cascading effect of increased insulin levels, increased fat storage, and an increased waistline over time.
Also, as a refined grain, white rice offers a low level of satiety. So you’ll eat it, won’t feel very full, and then eat more. This cycle can lead to an excessive calorie intake and increased weight gain.

I want better skin


Anti-wrinkle 

 

Below is a paragraph describing just one of thousands of pieces of advice and facts that best descibe what #MetabolicBalance® Can do for you. 


A few years ago, I gave up processed sugars. This is a tough process, but the rewards to your body, skin and overall health make it worthwhile.

Overeating sugar can make skin dull and wrinkled. To blame is a natural process known as glycation. With glycation, the sugar in your bloodstream attaches to proteins to form harmful new molecules called advanced-glycation-end products (AGEs). As AGEs accumulate, they damage adjacent proteins. Most vulnerable to the damage are collagen and elastin, which keep skin firm and elastic.

I suggest following an anti-inflammatory diet with healthy fats, lean protein, fiber, and antioxidants to limit glycation. Eat proteins first as they will balance the insulin spikes of the complex carbs. #MetabolicBalance®

Look good, feel great, lose weight

cropped-img_6999-1.jpeg

Glad you liked the title of this blog post, what isn’t there to like. Looking good, feeling amazing and losing weight tends to be high on peoples agenda. Two of them are high on my agenda, for years and years (and until only recently) I always thought, if I exercise four or five times per week I could eat what ever I wanted. To an extent it works a little… when I was younger maybe, but in both male and female bodies the age thing tends to creep up. are you with me on this? The four or five times at the gym or pounding the streets started to get a little harder.

So why the change, dont get me wrong exercise I love and always will and will continue to do and keep prescribing. I have found my new love, something that is in “every-bodies” life every day many times per day, more so for others and for some through bad habits and education, its killing people and will continue to kill people… sorry to bring a downer to this. Food is killing people. This is why ive had a change. When im talking to friends and clients about the way in which food can and so easily can change your life, i get a buzz out of getting to the root cause.

With in 2 weeks you can feel amazing by simply changing the way you eat, your skin changes, your energy levels, your sleep improves, whether you have IBS, depression, osteoporosis, allergies, gout, over weight, hypertension the list can go on and on, these symptoms can be helped, even got rid of.

This I why im doing the Metabolic Balance approach, look at the recent changes in international singer Sam Smith and soon to be international James Corden their bodies have changed so much and gone through the Metabolic Balance way. I read in article about how people with depression have had the best results they have ever experienced and not needed the tablets any more.

This is where the change has come from. Hope I can see you very soon.
