So here’s a new idea, I’m always saying you should buy foods which add value to your health. Ones where you get real nutrition for your money. I don’t like paying for things which actually leave me worse off in the long run. But this blog is also about how being healthy affects your whole [...]

I definitely stole the title of this post from this article right here. The title was originally going be ‘an addictive problem’ because the majority of people out there are addicted to sugar. No it’s not a class A drug. No it’s not associated with disorderly behaviour, lower social classes, or mental problems. But it is addictive. [...]

A study just released indicates a significant health care savings, $85 billion – if we manage to scale back obesity rates just 1% annually (in the USA).

I wont deny, some people do have a lot of success losing weight by following the no carbs after 6pm rule. For some people its a more simple rule, easy to manage, and therefore they stick to it for longer.

Occasionally I have it, and the following recipe is possibly the simplest, most delicious, most nutritionally complete option I have developed yet, for those who want a cereal/oat [...]

Friend offered me a gummy sweet today. I kindly declined, and suggested she didn’t know me well enough. She exclaims, “what, these are not healthy?!” To me this is just a massive FACE PALM.

You’re OK. You’ve probably got what you need. Maybe you’re already in good shape, and no big health concerns. You’re having a good time, you’ve got a nice place to live, a job, and the problems you do have are way more important than making up any health issues which aren’t even getting in your [...]
