Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a lovely weekend. Now lets round up what we learnt from clinics this week and how we can apply some practical tips into our own lives.
- Is weight loss your only goal for changing how you eat? Weight really is only one small factor of being healthy and this week I found it really refreshing to meet with a client who actually chooses not to be weighed because their goal is to just make healthier choices in their life and feel better. Now can we all start thinking like this please?[spacer height=”20px”]
- Why are we not taking stress and mental health seriously? This week I saw several clients for digestive health problems and all had quite high levels of stress in their life. Will my diet intervention alone completely resolve their problems? Erm, highly unlikely! I mean, yes they will get some benefit but unless stress is addressed they are unlikely to ever find a 100% solution to their problems. Stress affects us all and unfortunately it is difficult to avoid it, so lets get some coping mechanisms into our lives or find professional help.[spacer height=”20px”]
- Christmas has been on the mind of many people in clinic this week. Regardless of what their dietary goal is – panic is setting in! No need to fear though as I will be doing a downloadable planner which will enable you to pre-empt difficult situations so you can achieve the balance of enjoying Christmas without the side effects and guilt. To makes sure you don’t miss the download planner please ‘subscribe’ to my updates.[spacer height=”20px”]
- On to a less festive topic, yes POO! It has been a while since I lasted posted about this so I need to get my fix. Anyway, if your stools are looking cracked and hard rather than smooth, this is a sign of constipation. There seems to be some confusion around this as despite going to the loo daily, these other signs are an indication that you are actually on the constipated side of things. So a 3 step remedy for you – fluid (2-3L of non-alcoholic each day), exercise (30 minutes daily) and fibre (5 x 80g portions of fruit & veg AND brown carbs please).
