Hands up if you’ve ever felt lethargic and rundown, struggling with your exercise routines? It could be down to your diet and how you’re fuelling your body. We all want to ensure we have the best nutrition to optimise our performance and help us along our fitness journey.... but sometimes, it can be hard to figure it out by yourself.
Training for a sporting event? Or smashing your summer by keeping on your fitness path? Whatever you’re training for and for whatever reason, correct nutrition to fuel your body is paramount to keeping you energised and allowing your body to recover efficiently post-workout.
What the heck happens to our evenings? During the week, long days in the office can sap motivation to get those pesky chores done come evening. And before you know it, bedtime is calling and you’re in no way prepared for tomorrow. Especially for lunch…
What’s life without the odd sweet treat? We couldn’t bear the thought! We’re all about balance and we’d never judge someone who will smash a HIIT session then smash a piece of cake. We feel ya. We do it too… but what if you have a sweet tooth that needs to be curbed but you’re wanting to stay on track to your goals? Never fear, we’ve got 10 delicious low sugar snacks that you NEED in your life.
The saying goes “abs are made in the kitchen so get crunching!” - do you know what that means? You can workout to the best of your abilities, smash your sessions and feel like an exercise god/goddess… but if you’re not fuelling your body correctly, you could be undoing all your good work. Time to delve into delicious post-workout meals to refuel your body.
The subject of carbohydrates can be complex (pun intended), as they’ve sure gained a bad rap over the years. Many fad diets have written off the food group, viewing all carbs as weight-gainers, leading to many believing that a carb-free diet is a top way to lose weight and be healthy.
Being active and squeezing all you can from life should be at the top of everyone’s list! We all know that being active makes us happier, healthier, and ready to take on the world… But how do we develop a workout habit and turn it into an awesome lifestyle, not a chore?
As raw food diets continue trending with gusto, more of us are reaching for the raw crunch over regular cooked vegetables. The thinking behind raw food diets is that the less processed or cooked the vegetables are, the more nutrients will remain locked in giving us all the goodness we need… but while raw vegetables may be giving our jaws a workout, is it any better for us?
We’re all guilty for reaching for a sweet treat every now and then. When that craving kicks in, you sometimes have to have super-human strength to resist, or look for an alternative option that isn’t packed full of sugar.
