Did you look in the mirror this morning and a dad bod looked back?
Perhaps you’re wondering how this crept up on you… perhaps you’re not even a dad!
As for how it happened, it may have involved;
- - Friday night beers with mates turned into Monday through Sunday beers;
- - A few too many burgers with chips, kebabs or pizza;
- - Breaking off a Kit Kat (or three) for afternoon tea;
- - Skipping the gym again in favour of working late or sleeping off that hangover from above-mentioned beers;
Or simply too busy, or can’t be bothered to shop or cook (that’s if you knew how to cook, in the first place).Read more...
Marketers do a great job making products more appealing to consumers, especially on the shelves of your local supermarket. Thankfully it’s my job as a nutritionist to help you cut through the hype and sort fact from fiction.
These days, choosing healthy options is a minefield of competing product claims, making it virtually impossible for anyone without a Food Science degree to make sense of it all. But not anymore.Read more...
If you’re trying to stick to a diet or healthy eating plan, you need to know what you’re actually eating and sometimes the supermarket labels can be deceiving. You need to be able to navigate the sometimes wildly exaggerated health claims of product labels to know if a product is truly healthy or is it just a marketing hype. So if you’re searching ‘how to read food labels’, now is the perfect time to learn your way around a food label and it’s easy with our guidance.
Lucky for us, food labelling in Australia is governed by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand (FSANZ) which means we have a consistent set of information that must be contained on every label. So really, those healthy choices are right in front of you, you just need to be able to make sense of it all. And that’s where we come in.Read more...
For most keto dieters, eggs are the go-to breakfast staple – scrambled, fried, poached, boiled or as an omelette – anyhow you like them is fine. You can also freely eat your fill of bacon, avocado, cold cuts, olives, nuts, smoked salmon and cheese as well as adding any healthy fats such as olive oil, coconut oil, butter, mayonnaise and coconut cream. Keto friendly vegetables include leafy greens, zucchini, cauliflower, broccoli, asparagus and eggplant to name a few.Read more...
Understanding the Keto Diet
The ketogenic diet is a high fat, moderate protein, low carbohydrate diet that forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.
A typical Western diet contains approximately 250g of carbs per day, whereas ketogenic diets limit carbohydrate to just a fraction of this amount. Suffice to say, adopting a keto regime can be quite a radical change from many people’s normal eating habits!Read more...

Daniella Calci, owner and franchisee of Vision Pt Balgowlah talks to us about goal setting and how it's an integral part of achieving positive results. Vision’s core focus is based on improving weight loss, strength and fitness by applying these 3 simple but important fundamentals:
1. Be realistic - Understand your body type and any limitations when setting weight loss goals.
2. Be practical - Set achievable nutritional and fitness goals. If the client can only exercise 3 days per week that’s OK, we set the goals to suit them.
3. Be supportive - Daniella has worked with 100s of clients and the one thing everyone needs is encouragement and support. This is the best thing about one-on-one Personal Training, it’s much more personal and therefore has greater benefits.Read more...
