Eat This: Men’s Health

I once proposed a book topic and title to my publisher, and it was about men’s health and weight loss. It was turned down before even being proposed to the ‘group’ of other editors who all weigh in on whether a book title and topic is worthy of them looking into publishing it. I felt let down on many levels. “Men don’t buy books, or enough books” was the reason. Well, then who is buying […]

Eat This: What do I do every day?

You know when you look at someone and wonder what on earth they do with themselves, because you’re looking to do better? Well that happens with clients, listeners, followers and friends. Being asked what I’m doing has been a constant throughout my career and I’m more than happy to share. Along with wanting to be inspired, I’m also asked how-to. In the midst of our busy lives, there has to be a way to do […]

Eat This: Energy

Energy is defined as the “strength and vitality required for sustained physical or mental activity”. Well, that’s the definition to do with health of course. Energy can feel like seeing an oasis in a desert at times, where you wish you could get there—feel it, experience it and then live it, man your life could be all singing, all dancing if you just had more energy. There are different types of energy; physical energy, that […]

Eat This: Burnout – Adrenal Failure

We talk about stress like it’s a fact of life these days, and unless you’re living on a desert island with someone fanning you all day, bringing you food and drinks with umbrellas, you’re likely experiencing stress on a daily basis. What happens when it goes on and on and becomes chronic and you just can’t get off the stress merry-go-round? Burnout happens, that’s what. Does that mean that you can’t get out of bed […]

Eat This: Protein Powder

Picture this: walking the aisle of a supermarket, health food store, supplement shop or even big box store in the protein powder section. I just felt your energy constrict at the mere thought of scanning what’s on offer, weighing up the claims and promises and then crossing everything that you’re choosing the right one amidst the downright confusion. Those massive tubs of muscle-building, weight-loss-promising, be-healthy-faster powders can not only break the bank, but be a […]

Eat This: All About Menopause

Menopause, and a more common term that you’ll hear these days – perimenopause – sum up what’s dauntingly known as “the change” in a woman’s life. It typically happens anywhere from her forties onwards – for some even earlier, and for some it comes later. I think it’s a bit like breastfeeding in that this is supposed to be a natural part of life, but “natural” doesn’t speak to how uncomfortable, difficult and painful it […]

Eat This: Vitamin D And Its Magic

Unless you’re living in a dark cave without sunlight and an undiagnosed situation of osteoporosis, you’ve heard of vitamin D and its importance for strong bones and teeth, and more recently, the potential impact on improving immunity. Of course, it’s best known as the vitamin to prevent rickets in children and the often bowed leg photos are from third world countries that have plenty of sunshine, so what’s up with that? There’s often a lag […]

Eat This: What’s not to love about tea?

Tea is the second most consumed drink in the world – next to water, that is. Answer this: if you could only drink one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? I’d likely say water, but I might get bored of it, so I’ll agree with some of the great functional medicine docs out there and say tea. Tea can vary the taste of what’s in your cup but with some […]
