We need a new approach to health and fitness-one that places less emphasis on body weight (or body fat) and more emphasis on healthy metabolism-becoming “metabolically” fit.

LOSING WEIGHT

LOSING WEIGHT

I am not advocating that we should be complacent about obesity. Its just that continued focus on weight loss seems counterproductive and may be quite hazardous to the health of those who continually battle their weight.

HYDROLYSED PROTEIN

Hydrolysed or hydrolyses is a method of adding water to protein molecules to help break (lyses) them into smaller parts called peptides. Peptides are collections of 2 to 5 amino acid (the building blocks of protein) chains which are theoretically absorbed faster. It is something like a form of pre-digestion.

BETTER HEALTH

FINANCES, RELATIONSHIPS AND MENTAL WELL-BEING: The quality of your life is directly related to your standards. A standard is a personal rule or expectation about the level of excellence you require in something and when you raise your standards you change your life. In my work as a professional coach, i have found that most people haven’t taken time to define their standards.
