It’s outta the house!

If you’re anything like me, if chocolate is opened or mince pies sitting in the cupboard I’ll eat them. I hate throwing food away – so I have another plan…read on

I find this pull towards food worse when I’m studying (and I’m doing a lot of that). Whether it’s because I’m not in ‘the flow’  – you know when time just goes without realising it – or my brain is working overtime so needs more fuel! (Of course it must the latter!!!)

Anyway, i’m getting away from the subject…

So if you’re being pulled towards the Xmas left overs… get them outta the house!

This year I hosted my family Christmas and worried they would starve (like we do!) I filled the kitchen, any spare space (including using the outdoor shed as a fridge for drinks), with goodies. 

As my family gradually left I filled their bags with food. No space in the car they cried… I’ll find some, I replied!

The final bag full went today.

So my advice to you is do the same… if you know you’ll be helped by it… give it away or hide it wrapped, underneath, high up so it’s a real inconvenience to get at.

We can make it easier for ourselves to get back to eating in moderation again.

 

If you would like to join the coaching programme to help you breaking those bad habits and making new ones then email info@getfit2.co.uk and get these sort of results…

80% of women…

This is a scary statistic…nearly 80% of women aged between 40-60 are either overweight, obese, inactive or (and??) drink too much.

(Guildelines for alcohol intake is no more than 14 units per week – both men and women)

Will you make any changes to move away from that statistic?

I see about 15 people a week coaching them to improved health. The main issue with many of them is that they spend the majority of the day sitting at a desk.

How can you break this up when you have a sedentary job?

  • Lunch time walk?
  • Walking to the next block of toilets or coffee machine?
  • Walk to chat to a colleague instead of calling?
  • Take the stairs instead of the lift
  • Walking meetings
  • Stand when on the phone
  • Get a standing desk (if funds are available)
  • If you get an hour’s lunch break – 30 minutes could be spent doing a fitness class
  • Stretch every hour – minimum!!

Where’s my chocolate gone?!?!

Have you ever sat in front of the TV chomping away on a bar of chocolate…only to realise you have eaten the whole bar?

Did you enjoy the whole bar? Or maybe you only remember eating the first chunk!

Here’s a little test for you to awaken your taste buds.

Diabetes, inflammation, weight gain…

Wow! I learnt so much and will be able to help you even more with your health and well-being

I’ve been listening to a diabetes summit this week with some amazingly knowledgeable presenters with professions and backgrounds in functional, traditional, naturopathic education, interests, experience and practice.

I will just quickly share a small snippet with you…

Look after your gut health first

Take care to avoid (as much as you can), toxins from food, plastic containers, cleaners, cosmetic

Dietary fibre is really helpful in balancing blood sugar

Another good reason to use coconut oil is that saturated fats cannot be oxidized and can’t be damaged by toxic chemicals (free radicals)

The immune system regulates itself so make sure you’re not deficient in Vitamin D, zinc and magnesium. Eat bone broth (and eat organ meat) to get glycene in your diet.

It’s not just about diet, if you’re not consistently getting enough sleep you’re damaging your immune system

 Absolutely fascinating!

I have worked with many clients who have been either pre-diabetic, diabetic and also helped clients reverse their type II diabetes. So I was interested to hear and learn more on the subject, especially new scientific research and tried and tested natural remedies and the possible causes.

I didn’t expect to learn as much as I did about gut health, thyroid problems, and the any other autoimmune diseases there are and was interested to hear about how our immune system gets stressed and the impact on our body systems.

I have a real passion for food being our medicine and there was a lot of information on how diet effects inflammation and also learnt about the many different herbs and natural remedies that can be used to decrease the risk of auto immune system.

I now have to make sense of the notes I have made and do some further research that will help me to help you and share strategies to help with your health and well-being.

If you’re interesting in hearing more about any of these subjects please email me and tell me what you’re interested in. I will let you know when I write or set up courses on the subject. info@getfit2.co.uk
