Eat This: The Vagus Nerve

Despite my willingness to always be learning something new, there are times when I need to hear something, or be hit over the head with it a few times before I get into it. Well that has happened over the past few months. In speaking with someone about the mental health challenges that one of my daughters has been having over the past year, the term Polyvagal Theory came up. It was suggested to look […]

Eat This: Sleep and why you can’t get a good night of it

There are times when topics come up once, and then you hear the same thing again, and again. Lately, I’ve had that experience with different people talking about sleep. And not always that they’ve had a good night of it. Clients who have had issues of late, but also for years. There are people who have never slept well in their lives, and others who go through spells of not sleeping well. I’ve talked before […]

Eat This: Supersized Lies

So you’re not happy with your weight. Many aren’t so that conversation is extremely common. How many diets have you put yourself on, tried in earnest, only to find that you go back to your default way of eating and the weight creeps back on? There are health implications that come with obesity, fat deposited around the middle–that muffin top, a high fat to muscle ratio and numbers staring back at you when you step […]

There are varying degrees of discipline to any exercise or way of eating, and sometimes it’s easy to be super focused, and then that novelty wears off, but […]

Eat This: Digestion, gas and poop

  Digestion and toilet talk are generally not very gauche to strike a conversation about but it needs to be talked about. Before birth, while you’re swimming around in your mama’s womb you poop. And from your first breath onwards,you’re hopefully going to poop every day. What comes out of your body–down the poop shoot; whether solid, liquid or gas, tells a story of what’s going noto only within the digestive system but within your […]

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: 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 […]
