What does all this mean?? It means you are eating something that will provide you with an increased resistance against allergies, helps you to metabolise fats and sugars within the body, helps control blood pressure, a powerful antioxidant boost to protect cells from damage, reduce your risks of some cancers, and provide feelings of satiety which can help with weight management. Can't get better than that!
As with all foods, it is recommended to eat a wide variety of foods everyday to gain maximum health benefits as nutrients work in synergy with each other. Below is a list of some of the more common mushrooms you might like to try!

How many of you think you are doing the right thing, by not adding salt to your foods or cooking? You might think that your salt (sodium) intake is ok....? But is it really?
Most people are unaware of hidden sodium in foods. If you eat crackers, biscuits, chips, pastries, bread, pickled foods, processed meats, condiments, sauces, pasta packets, convenience meals, basically anything that has been pre-packaged or processed chances are your sodium intake is still too high!!
What can happen to your weight and health if you have a diet consistently high in sodium over a long period of time??

I meet so many people that tell me they are going on a holiday and when I ask them if they plan on doing any exercise whilst they are away they look at me like I'm crazy and say "It's a holiday! I'm going to relax!"
Sleeping in is bliss...a lot of people enjoy a nice sleep in. There are so many other things in this world for us to enjoy too...what about the beautiful sunrises we have almost everyday here in Australia. Some of the best in the world! An early morning jog can be the perfect start to your day and put a smile on your face. I can tell you it definitely feels worthwhile getting out of that nice warm bed when you get to see the pretty colours in the sky above.
Here is a suggestion for all those holiday takers who think exercise is not an option;
Check out these great shots that I took from this mornings sunrise :) Got back feeling pumped and got straight into some kettlebell work!
Knowing that I have an uphill battle on my hands against the steady stream of fad diets, high protein low carb crazes, shakes and supplements that promise rapid weight loss, it was going to take more than just me verbalising my views on the topic. People respond well to real life results. How do you know all the products on the market work? Can you really believe their clever marketing and testimonials?
As a general rule, if something sounds too good to be true it really is. I have met so many people that have tried all of the above, lost some weight and then put it all back on. Where is the long term healthy weight maintenance? There is none if we are talking about all of the fads mentioned above.
So I thought the best way to show people what I believe is one of the best methods for weight loss was to follow my own plan to show what it really takes to lose weight and change your body composition. Below are the videos that I took along the way to mark my progress throughout the challenge. As a reward for my hard work, I had some professional photos taken from a fantastic photographer Tom Kirk at hypercaptures.zenfolio.com. Which you will see on some of my pages within this site. I hope you get something out of these videos. Any questions feel free to send me an email :)
