There seems to be so much confusion out there about just what is and what is not The Paleo Diet.

Just the other day I was confronted by two otherwise very intelligent, very knowledgeable health professionals who were surprised that I still ate fruit on my ‘Paleo Diet’. This is my response.

There also seems to be […]

You’re Here For You

Sarah, our new trainer at Greenhill Family Fitness, has a saying that she likes to repeat over and over: ‘You’re here for you!’, and I think it is a fantastic mantra to have.

So often in our modern health care system people want to pass on the responsibility for their health and their actions to someone […]

Why I Hate The 80:20 Rule

The 80:20 rule is an oft repeated and much loved mantra in health and wellness circles. The principle (and I think it a quite sound one) is that if you can get your diet and exercise 80% right then you will get most of the benefits that you would otherwise get if you did it […]

Why I don’t use exercise machines

I wish I had a dollar for every time someone has asked me what type of exercise equipment they should buy, or use at the gym, or which one is the best. Whether it is the more commonly used machines at the gym or the shall we say ‘unique’ ones you can purchase on TV, […]

Why I Don’t Like Hacks

Hacks have become very popular in the Paleo community over the last few years as people try to get even better results out of their Paleo lifestyle or simply try and expediate the process towards their goals. I for one am not a fan of many of them.

I am as curious as the next person […]

Don’t shop hungry!

The battle to eat healthily is often won and lost at the shops. If you buy healthy stuff during your weekly shop, you are much more likely to be eating healthily throughout the week. I mean let’s face it, if you have one of those weak moments when you are home and there is something […]

The Story Behind the Book – Nourish Without Nagging

‘Nourish Without Nagging – How to Get Your Kids to Love Eating Healthily’ isn’t something that happened overnight, it’s been in the works for a long time.  Just the other day I was going through old files on my computer when I found the document that started it all and realised it’s been almost 5 years to the day!
