When wanting to lose weight the common theme I see in clinic is people ramping up their exercise routine and eating less. In theory it makes sense – burn more calories than you eat, and the kilos will come off. But, the truth is which study after study has shown that, in the long run dieting is rarely effective. Eating a low calorie diet for a long period of time does not improve your health and can do more harm than good.
Smoothies are an amazing way to get a variety of nutrients in your diet. They also take very little time to make so are the perfect breakfast option for anyone who is short on time in the mornings. It’s almost too easy to get carried away with smoothies by adding a little of this, a handful of that a sprinkle of that and voilà! A healthy meal in no time, right?
Currently I’m in week 2 (day 9) of my 14-Day Restart Plan and I’m already feeling ahhmazing, so much lighter, more alert, energetic and finding it much easier to get out of bed in the mornings. I too enjoyed a few more wines, cheese and crackers and ice-cream than normal over the holidays, which is why I’m doing my 14-Day Restart Plan, I really wanted to start nourishing my body again with whole foods so I could feel vibrant and mentally focused once again. I thought I would share a day on my plate with you while on the plan so you can get an insight into what foods you would be able to enjoy whilst being on one of my programs or working with me.
Not sure about you, but I sure did enjoy a few more wines, ice-creams, cheese and crackers over the Christmas/New Year season. I like to relax a little more over the holiday season as often I’m away with friends and family and I don’t put pressure on myself to eat perfectly. I know it’s only for a short period of time, and I’m all for balance! But, I’ve had my fun, and now I’m in need of a reset. Anyone else feeling the same?
