I’ve seen hundreds of clients for weight loss, who before seeing me tried everything under the sun to lose weight. Some of my clients even have the perfect diet but still were struggling to shift weight. Weight loss doesn’t always come down to calories in vs calories out. There are numerous things that could be going on in your body which can affect weight loss, this is what I educate my clients about to help them reach their weight loss goals. And today I’m going to touch on a few of these for you.Read More
We all get food cravings, let’s be real. But we shouldn’t get them on a daily basis. I’ve helped hundreds of people overcome their cravings, and it’s something I still see clients with on a weekly basis. Because of this I wanted to write this post. If cravings is something you’re struggling with hopefully I can help you overcome them! I know first-hand how much cravings can consume us. Before I studied nutrition, I was working in a corporate role and was struggling with health challenges. At that time I was a sugar-addict, chocolate and ice-cream consumed my mind daily, and I’d always give into them, only making my craving worse and my health challenges worse, so I know how it feels and how challenging it can be to over-come cravings.Read More
Stress is inevitable, and a little stress is normal and actually good for us (believe it or not!) when it’s in small amounts, but too much stress isn’t good, and this is also the case when we are trying to burn body fat and lose weight.Read More

You need to consider your thyroid health, for example, are you getting the right nutrients in your diet to support thyroid health, because your thyroid is what controls your metabolism. You need to consider your adrenal health, and what your adrenals are doing to your thyroid, and then your stress levels and what your stress is doing to your adrenals because if you’re stressed your adrenals secrete stress hormones which affect thyroid health. You also need to consider your gut health, viruses, illnesses, emotional bases issues.Read More

If you want to lose weight, what would your answer be if I asked you “why do you struggle to lose weight”? Answers I commonly get to this questions in clinic is to do with emotional eating, eating out of boredom, portion control, struggling to say no to “office treats”, feeling too restricted or losing motivation. This doesn’t come to surprise me, a lot of people I see in clinic often have tried dieting, restricting foods, followed a new food trend (paleo, low carb, fasting) or followed what worked for their friend or family member, which is a problem. One size does not fit all. Typical methods of losing weight are often too restrictive, lack flexibility and this doesn’t often fit into your schedule and everyday life.Read More
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.Read More

For far too long many people jump on the scales to see what number jumps back at them. Although picking an arbitrary number for weight loss can be a good starting point (and it’s definitely good to set goals), your scale number certainly doesn’t tell the whole story. Yes, they are valuable as a quantitative tool, and clinically can be useful for tracking progress. However, the number you see when you jump on the scales can either make or break your day and can send you on an unnecessary roller coaster of emotions. I want to encourage you NOT to jump on the scales in the morning, or any time of day in fact. We are so much more than a number!Read More

More often than not I have to emphasize the importance of protein in my client’s diet, which is why I decided to write a blog post about it. Protein is actually one of the most important parts of a healthy diet. It seems to me that many people nowadays are still under the impression that protein is going to make us ‘bulky’. This is in no way true what so ever! Did you know that protein is a component of every single cell in your body, and is used to build and repair bones and tissue?Read More

There is no easy or quick way to lose weight. If there was, weight loss wouldn’t be such a hot topic! I believe if you want to maintain your ideal weight you need to bring it back to the basis, and maybe let go of old habits or old thought processes. Changing behaviours is often more difficult than losing weight.Read More
