Eat This: DNA Test Results

We go through life being tested; tests at school, driving tests, health checks and blood tests, and some of the results of many of these tests can be life-changing, would you agree? Well at the beginning of 2022, I voluntarily submitted my spit – yes I filled the tube to the line with a bunch of watery saliva that ranks up there as the easiest bio-fluid to extract and use for DNA testing. This isn’t […]

Eat This: Take This, but why?

The word supplement means something that completes or enhances something else when added to it. Drilling down on what a dietary supplement is, good ol’ Merriam tells us that a product taken orally that contains one or more ingredients (such as vitamins or amino acids) that are intended to supplement one’s diet and are not considered food.

Eat This: Isometric training

We all may have done it, got inspired about working out, joined a team sport, put on a fitness app, and have someone tell you how long to ride or cycle for.

Eat This: Time Management

Time… why does it seem that there’s never enough of it? After all, there are 86,400 seconds or 1,440 minutes or 24 hours in a day, and most days it’s not enough, right?! But, what would be enough?

Eat This: Reading blood test results

We’ve all been to the doctor, sat down at their desk or stretched out on the observation table and shared how you’re feeling and what your symptoms and concerns are. Your doctor assesses them all, writes notes, maybe checks you out, does a physical exam and maybe orders some tests to see what’s not seen.

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 […]
