Eat This: Cheat Days

Have you ever signed yourself up for a CHEAT DAY? Or do you call it a treat day? Maybe your version is a cheat night, the week while you’re on holiday, or the month after you’ve done a cleanse or been on a restricted diet? It happens. 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: 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: Meat myths and choosing the best

If you’re any kind of carnivore; part time, full time, following the carnivore diet as a meat only eater, Keto or any variation of those the chatter and controversy around eating too much meat is a constant one. Plant-based ways and views can either vilify eating animals or be somewhere in the middle with do-what-you-want, and I’ll do-what-I-want philosophy. The eat meat camp can be just as strong as the do-not-eat camp. I’m not sure […]

Eat This: Cholesterol

Have you ever been painted a picture about something that’s just not good. Only to find out for yourself that that dark, bleak and unhealthy picture isn’t actually all that bad? Well that’s my feeling on certain health issues and one in particular, cholesterol. Man, it gets a bad rap. The diagnosis from your doctor brings the unknown front and center. With a likely diagnosis of HIGH cholesterol, the tailspin that ensues with a clear […]

Eat This: Could You Have NAFLD?

Your liver is your body’s workhorse and when was the last time that you even considered how it’s doing? If you’re not aware, your liver is your body’s primary filtration system and converts toxins into waste products and then takes out that trash. It cleanses and filters your blood, metabolizes and breaks down nutrients and all medications from anti-seizure, blood pressure, cholesterol and chemo meds to what you took for your last headache and it […]
