Types of exercise for fat loss

Types of exercise for fat loss

on Tuesday, 07 July 2015.

I am going to start out by firstly saying, if you are getting out there and getting active more than 3 times a week then you are doing well! Whether that be long distance running, run-jog-walking, footy training, group fitness classes etc- good on you!

My Make Up Bag + Best Natural Products

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. I really notice that my skin prefers them compared to brands and products that have more chemicals in them… I have tried and tested many, so below I talk about the best of the best! 

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.

on Monday, 30 March 2015.

With all the attention on reducing sugar and processed foods in our diets, I feel like there is a lot of talk but less solutions! So here is a list of 10 great snack foods and ideas which have: no added sugars, minimal processing and are healthy and fulfilling. Plus 2 swap ‘this for this’ ideas.

Straightening teeth with Invisalign

Straightening teeth with Invisalign

on Thursday, 12 February 2015.

I get comments on my teeth every now and then – I have Invisalign to thank for that!

I started them when I was 18 or 19 so the invisible option was great as I wasn’t keen on conventional braces.

Sugary Drinks

Sugary Drinks

on Thursday, 29 January 2015.

Soft drinks, energy drinks, sports drinks, iced teas, vitamin waters .. The list goes on! There are so many sugary drinks for sale out there, all full of empty calories. Meaning they contain high calories – but little to no nutrients. 

 

‘feeling lazy’ cardio work out

‘feeling lazy’ cardio work out

on Wednesday, 14 January 2015.

You know those days! Where you scheduled to hit the gym but you just can't mentally be bothered. On those days when I feel like this, instead of not going at all and being lazy, this is the work out I do. 

Daily Beauty Regime

Daily Beauty Regime

on Wednesday, 17 December 2014.

Like nutrition, not one beauty regime is going to be the answer for all. But I have been through many stages of trying the ‘best thing’ for my skin, and have become wiser on the topic. I have also learnt that how your skin looks and behaves depends a lot on hormones, genetics and nutrition.

Why sugar is not toxic

Why sugar is not toxic

on Wednesday, 10 December 2014.

Sugar in excess is not great for your health, and I personally don’t eat a lot of added sugars in my day. But does this mean I buy into the ‘sugar is toxic’ saga? No!

I get asked about this topic a lot, and I think it is important to understand that yes, we could all do with eating less sugar, but we can’t blame just one nutrient for our obesity problem. So thought I would share some knowledge with you.

The Mediterranean diet

The Mediterranean diet

on Friday, 21 November 2014.

The Mediterranean diet is more a way of life. It is not a restrictive diet and does not have strict guidelines to follow. It is simply how people in the Mediterranean choose to eat, and it has them healthy, fit and living long - as some of the healthiest people in the world.
