Diet Cults

Diet Cults

A strong charismatic leader with a powerful, us versus them message. A narcissistic fake saviour willing to twist the facts, fabricate lies and sow the seeds of doubt. According to the diet guru, the other experts in the field are misinformed fools or even corrupt. He wants us to believe that the solution to losing fat and keeping it off (in most cases) is far more complicated than decreasing lamingtons and increasing the daily activity. And it definitely isn’t about…

My Mostly Plant Based Diet

My Mostly Plant Based Diet

How to know someone’s a vegan? Don’t worry, they’ll tell you! Now, on that note. In 2015 I was eating four meat meals a day and went through vivid fantasies on how great would it be if I could reduce it to one a day, focusing on plant based with the others. I had started to feel strongly about the environmental causes and stuff and I figured that if I drop down on meat it would help to reduce my…

Game Changers for a Better Health

Game Changers for a Better Health

I got the idea for this week’s post after scrolling through Dan John’s online forum. Someone posted their five game changers that have given them the biggest boost towards a better health. As I’ve written in the past I don’t always see health and fitness part of the same goal. You can be very fit but in poor health. On the other hand, you can’t be healthy without being at least somewhat fit. Here are five game changers I’ve done…

Conquering Donut Cravings

Conquering Donut Cravings

  As is with most great blog post ideas (even if I say it myself), this too came while having a chat with one of my clients last week. He’s been trying to find ways to curb down his sugar consumption and was able to do so with a very simple shift in mindset.

F*ck Cheat Meals

F*ck Cheat Meals

I had a great dinner the other night when I caught up for beers with few mates. I ate beer battered fish and chips with tartar sauce and shared two massive plates of chilli cheese fries. I flushed it all down with four beers and two ciders. It was glorious. And although some people might call it a “cheat meal”, it wasn’t anything of sort. It was just another meal.

Confessions Of a Personal Trainer: What Do I Eat

Confessions Of a Personal Trainer: What Do I Eat

A while back Tony Gentilcore wrote a series of blog posts titled Confessions of an introverted strength coach. I will steal his headline (that he stole from a movie) for this blog post and write my own confessions. This might even become a series. It seems to surprise people when I explain how I actually eat. You might think that all personal trainers are a calorie counting robots (think R2D2 meets Robocop) who eat to maintain a ten-pack and deep…

Evil Carbs. Amazing Superfoods. Magic Diet.

Evil Carbs. Amazing Superfoods. Magic Diet.

There, I just proved a point. The sensationalism in the headline surely caught your attention. Don’t feel too bad, it’s not just you. It’s all of us until we build up our bullshit-radar. It’s easy to fall into thinking that harder is better when every source of “creditable” fitness information tells you to be a hardcore gym monster and a lean machine. The truth is that no one wants you to think that fat loss and fitness is simple. That would…
