Intuitive eating is simply the process of:
The problems with counting calories
We’ve been told to count calories and reduce fat for years, but we’re unhealthier, bigger and sicker than we’ve ever been before. Why?
Our environment is geared to stimulate excess energy consumption and decrease our incidental exercise. Both of which promote unhealthy weight-gain, which is associated with poorer health-related quality of life, shorter life-span and chronic disease.
I recently watched a BBC documentary called ‘Big in The Valleys’, which documented the struggles of obese individuals living in the Welsh Valleys, who were trying to lose weight and improve their physical and mental health markers (like cholesterol, blood pressure and anxiety levels).
Deciding what to eat on the day that you’re travelling can be frustrating. It’s frustrating because of your limited choices and weakened will power, as you’re probably either relaxed (vacation) or stressed (business trips).
Our feet are made up of multiple small bones and joints that are put under immense pressure throughout the day. As we walk on a variety of surfaces in all types of footwear, our feet adapt with each step.

There’s no doubt that most people begin intermittent fasting to help them lose/control their weight, but a recent study has shown there’s a lot more to be gained outside of the obvious weight-loss benefits.
I understand that this post is going to rub a lot of people the wrong way, but please hear me out.
Does the first thing we reach for in the morning really matter when it comes to fat loss? What if our total daily calories are in check?
My clients and I manage to achieve our goals without counting calories, and so can you.
For years, health and fitness professionals have told us we need to count calories in order to lose weight, but they’re wrong. Not only are they wrong, but they’re blind to their error —they just keep feeding us a weight-loss dogma that clearly doesn’t work, and it diminishes people’s hope of ever finding the lifestyle they desperately crave.
I bang-on a lot about SLEEP | EAT | MOVE | REPEAT, but how do I live my mantra when I’m away? Do I let it all go, or do I stick to it like glue? Read on to find out…
