FLEXIBLE DIETING FOR LONG TERM, SUSTAINABLE RESULTS

FLEXIBLE DIETING FOR LONG TERM, SUSTAINABLE RESULTS

on Thursday, 17 March 2016.

I have had a few questions about 'Macros' aka Flexible Dieting, which is a way of counting macronutirents (carbs, protein & fat) so you have complete control over your diet in order to lose weight, maintain weight or gain lean muscle. While counting macros is not for everyone, it is an effective method if done sensibly and correctly, and is also a great way to learn about nutrition and what is in the foods we eat. Danny Kennedy is an expert in the field of Flexible Dieting for body composition, and has been helping people master it for years. 

Pigmentation & Melasma

Pigmentation & Melasma

on Thursday, 10 March 2016.

In the few past years I started to notice slight uneven tones and patchiness on my face in some spots. This is called Pigmentation, which is from sun exposure and a Melasma, which is also from sun exposure and possibly from taking the pill for so many years. After experiencing slight pigmentation and Melasma I saw a dermal clinician, Derya from the Victorian Dermal Group, who has helped me decrease the problem and educated me on how to avoid it. So I have asked Derya a few questions to share with you what she taught me.

Limiting pre made sauces & Condiments

Limiting pre made sauces & Condiments

on Wednesday, 07 October 2015.

Sauces, spreads and condiments are often some of the unexpected culprits of high calorie foods. It is hard to imagine sushi without soysauce, toast without spreads or eating your foods plain! Sauces and condiments add flavour to our food to make it more palatable, but unfortunately a lot of them are full of fat, sugar and salt. The good news is that there are plenty of healthy ways to add flavour without these commercial sauces, and if we are educated about the contents of what we are putting on our foods we can learn to moderate how much we use, and make healthier alternatives.

HERBS & SPICES

on Wednesday, 07 October 2015.

Fresh Herbs and spices are a healthy way to flavour your meals, and can turn boring, bland food into a delicious dish! Salt, sugar and flavour boosters are often found in our foods to enhance taste, which can often cause us to over eat. Here I talk about some different herbs and spices so you can start to use them in your cooking for natural, healthy flavour enhancement

I got an apple watch about two months ago — and I love it. I haven't gone a day without it!

It has been a great motivational tool to move more every day, so I thought I would share why I love it and what it does, in case anyone is thinking of getting a sport watch.

My Make Up Bag + Best Natural Products

on Thursday, 04 June 2015.

I like to use more natural products where I can, especially for foundation and products that go straight onto the skin.

CARBS AND PROTEIN

CARBS AND PROTEIN

on Wednesday, 13 May 2015.

Carbs VS Protein? I'll take both! With all the extreme diets around (some which cut out healthy food groups) I want to talk about why protein and carbs are both equally important and about why a balanced diet, containing all of the macronutrients is the most healthy and sustainable diet.
