Treat treats as treats

In the pre-covid world, when I used to commute to work, it was nothing short of enlightening to observe how many people we’re passionately downing potato chips or candy on public transport. This happened mostly in the afternoon on their way to what I can only assume was their home. […]

If it’s in front of us…

…we tend to do it. So much of our success with health and fitness comes down to our environment and surroundings. Whatever you have in your fridge and cupboard, that’s what you’re going to eat. Buy accordingly. If you want to reduce the amount of ice cream and cookies you […]

Don’t eat according to what others think

Don’t eat based on what you’ve been told in the past, if it no longer works for you. And especially if it’s never worked for you. Don’t eat based on what’s trendy. Trends come and go. And they’re mostly based on what gets clicks. Don’t believe anyone who says their […]

How to Stick with a Diet

The first domino falls. Maybe you swore to quit sugar (nooooo), carbs (say it isn’t so) or coconut ice cream (I can’t even). And now the initial burning motivation and excitement have worn off.  This attempt at a diet is becoming yet another prematurely ended diet in the mausoleum of […]

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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
