Eat This: The Blame Game

Why me, why her/him and not me? Why does it seem so much easier for others to lose the weight, stick to the program, to get up and go to the gym, basically anything that you see others having success in. “Why not me” is a narrative that can weigh you down, keep you stuck and hold you back from feeling incredible and having the life that you want.    Do you know what’s holding […]

Eat This: Be intentional

A good friend of mine, once had the note on his WhatsApp as BE INTENTIONAL. As he’s a wildly successful entrepreneur and coach, that phrase has stayed with me, although I haven’t always practiced it. Rather than the start of the year resolutions, I always set intentions. What I will be working towards, what I set my sights on and then head in that direction. I’m well aware that even with the best of intentions, […]

Eat This: FODMAP

Have you ever come across an acronym that you just couldn’t figure out? A colleague at work shared with me that he had just learned what LMAO stood for. How about diets? Sure there’s the DASH diet (dietary approach to stopping hypertension), the GAPS diet or gut and psychology diet, but what about the FODMAP diet? Ever heard of that one? Well on the heels of episode 97, all about candida, fungus and yeast, I […]

Eat This: Fungus, yeast and candida

While it’s not a usual to talk about anal itching, vaginal itching, jock itch, athletes food, crusty itchy skin amongst friends, that’s the kind of thing that we talk about here.

Eat This: Immunity 2.0

A listener’s question came in via email from Janice and asked “I’m hearing of colds going around. Can you help tell me what to stock my fridge with, that’ll help my family stay well?”  What do you think about that, Chris? I say, let’s help her out shall we?  Colds and flu season is around the corner and now, more than ever it’s important to be as proactive as possible in boosting our immunity to […]

Eat This: Your genes and testing

Lymphoma, breast cancer, endometrial cancer, colon cancer, stroke, heart attack, high cholesterol, arthritis, depression, macular degeneration, tremors, headaches and migraines are just some of the health conditions in my gene pool. My DNA has been tagged with these health trajectories. The only area of health that isn’t in here is diabetes and dementia, that I know of anyway. Does this mean that I’m destined to be hit with any of these diseases and health issues? […]

Eat This: The worst ingredients

Reading the label of any packaged food can look like it needs a chemistry degree. I’d hazard a guess that if you do turn over the box or crunchy plastic bag of what you’re wanting to know more about, and see sodium benzoate, or carrageenan or even artificial flavouring tartrazine not knowing exactly what it means doesn’t lead to you putting it back on the shelf … or does it? Why isn’t the whole label […]

Eat This: The good and the scary of chocolate

It’s a scary time of year as Halloween approaches, and when I say scary, I’m not just talking about the goules and dressed up scary clowns, I’m talking about the sugar overload that’s unleashed at this time of year, that often continues right through to the January resolutions of eating better, ditching the sugar and hitting the gym. And yes, it’s the end of October, but whenever you are listening to this episode, my nutritionist […]
