Responsibility

January 18, 2017

Responsibility is a great and HUGE point to take into consideration in the getting healthier journey.

In my opinion, that is the actual point that most people lack, and that is what creates unhealthy bodies, societies and even our planet.

Think about it.

If you own your problems, self reflect and act, you will be taking responsibility.

Some people avoid it to death, and sometimes until they die.

Global warming, obesity, political issues , they are all caused by the same factor.

To be healthy is not only about losing weight and doing a bootcamp.

I am sure you have already realised it by now.

Health is a broader spectrum.

To be healthy you must be strong and face things that need to be changed from diet, work, social connection, career, you name it, the list goes on on……

I highly recommend you to do a list today about things that need to be changed.

That will be a huge step into getting healthier.

After you do your list add a solution for every single point.

Some of them might scare you and that’s ok.

Take a deep breath and be responsible !

Don’t forget to add social aspects to your list, from your community to people around you.

The list starts now !

Excuse Mode

January 18, 2017

91328-87664

I think one day I will write a book about the thousand ways that people can create excuses to not exercise, eat well and achieve their targets.

I will name a few here, see if you can see yourself in there. If so, ask yourself WHY you are doing it, take a deep breath and ACT on your life instead of doing nothing :

1) I am busy

2) My girlfriend / boyfriend / partner forced me to eat it

3) I have a lot of business lunches

4) My mates forced me to drink alcohol or smoke

5) I am too old

6) I felt tired so I had to eat it

7) I was on holidays

8) I ate just a bit of it

9) I need a cheat day

10) Life is about moderation so …

11) It is a family tradition

12) I decided to not train when I was in bed

13) I had a late night so I couldn’t train

14) Everyone is doing it so I did it also

15) I was feeling bored and down so I ate it

And many more !

As you can see they are all very childish and irresponsible.

Stand up, take control of your life and DO IT !

The M Factor

January 12, 2017

CNDBPS4000_2

Here is one of the most important factors in fitness. I see people missing this point over and over.

Most people, when they think of fitness, think, harder, more, more and push harder.

This way of training is not the right way.

The right way is based in MODERATION.

Moderation will change from person to person. What is important is to self access and check a few points.

You will know that you overdoing it if :

1) You always feel tired
2) Irritable
3) Lack of motivation for things that before were considered passions
4) Feel like sleeping the whole time
5) Body aching all the time
6) No fitness results
7) No weight loss

Interesting huh?

So are you being moderate or not?

Honesty Factor

December 28, 2016

Iris_-_left_eye_of_a_girl

A lot has to be said about the title of this blog entry.

And I can’t emphasise enough the importance of honesty in health.

Honesty is about fully expressing yourself in any moment. I am talking here about acting with your essence and not with your ego’s needs and pressures.

An example applied to health is alcohol intake. Most of my clients complain that they end up drinking due to social pressure.

I teach them to be themselves and to say NO to those kind of pressures. People will love them even more when they say NO.

It is an interesting business the honesty one. I personally try to follow it a lot. I don’t socialise with people that are not my mob and I really don’t care what others might think.

It is kind of liberating to put yourself out there and say NO to anything that brings you down or takes you on a negative pathway.

I highly encourage you to make a list of things that let you down and change them.

It is hard in the beginning but with time you will feel amazing. Trust me.

As I said in a whole chapter of my book The Rawfit Diet, remove negative people out of your life !

Toxic people don’t add anything to your life.

Give your time to people that love you and respect you.

Ask yourself from time to time : “Can I fully express myself here or with this person”.

If not, DELETE it.

If so add more of it !

7 Thousand Calories

December 22, 2016

turkey-healthy-christmas-dinner-14112011

Can you believe that the average person “can” eat up to 7 thousand calories on Christmas Day?

I always say to my clients to be careful during celebrations but I think at Christmas the damage is taken to the next level !

If you think that the whole concept of Christmas was based on the celebration of life why would any person do something that extreme that at the end of the day takes away from that?

I question the behaviour big time!

An average person should not even be eating 3 thousand calories, let alone more than double that!

Jesus ! Literally !

My recommendation to you is to eat in moderation only foods that add quality to your life!

Think about what Christmas is and work on that !

And avoid that dessert that your mum or friend does so well !

Superfoods On A Budget

December 15, 2016

o-SUPERFOOD-900

I know superfoods are expensive. Not everyone can afford them.

The thing is, the more people buy them, the prices will go down. I remember when I used to buy Spirulina 20 years ago it used to cost as much as gold ! Now I can buy it at any supermarket, so it is important to keep buying those foods.

In the meantime, here is a little antioxidant recipe of superfoods on a budget !

I would recommend you have a powerful elixir at lunch time only:

Mix the following ingredients :

Juice of 3 lemons
5 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
3 shakes of cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons of Tumeric Powder
3 shakes of ground black pepper

Then add enough water to fill the whole glass.

This will help your body big time !

If you want to keep it simpler just have the lemon juice, cayenne pepper and Tumeric.

Cardio or Not ?

December 7, 2016

Jenny_Running
I have been asked this question a lot lately:

“Is cardio the best way to burn fat?”

I would elaborate here, saying that when I started doing my job as a trainer I believed that it was.

I used to believe that the harder you go, the better you get .

Uhm? But after so many years comparing results I can say that DIET is the best weight loss solution, followed by low impact exercises, followed by long duration exercises followed by cardio.

I don’t believe cardio is the solution for weight loss at all.

In the long run you can overeat, it can increase cortisol levels on the body and the end result is more weight gain.

Don’t get me wrong. Cardio is a fantastic exercise to increase your vascular system capacity, bone density, muscular tone and many more things, but for weight loss it is a NO NO.

I still recommend cardio to all of my clients but not for weight loss.

Is Breakfast The Main Meal Of The Day?

November 20, 2016

7270423_G

Apparently according to the KELLOGG’s folklore it is.

It all started in 1944 with its first marketing campaign, to be very specific.

John Harvey Kellogg a religious doctor believed that cereal would both improve Americans’ health and keep them from masturbating and desiring sex. Yes, you heard me right.

If we rewind history a bit more you would discover that the Romans ate only one meal a day. And they were very healthy.

Simply…. food companies sponsoring the major food researches in the name of profit, not in name of health.

If you have kids and if you remember when you were a kid, you will see that most of them hate breakfast. That is called natural eating instinct.

Personally I like to have filtered water with lemon juice and a pinch of cayenne pepper to start the day.

Mr Kellogg would be horrified I think !
