It is becoming more and more know that diet and nutrition plays a significant part in your health and fitness goals. On average it contributes a massive 80% of weight loss in the UK, with this in mind why not try something new……rather than trying different diets and either failing or yo-yo dieting (putting it all, and more back on) why not try keeping a food diary. It is simple, effective and a great start for a lifestyle change rather than a diet (remember diets shouldn’t have an end date). To start a food diary it really is as simple as jotting down everything you eat and drink in a day, at the end of each week look back at your diary and see where your weak points are and then we can look at addressing them step by step.

Just dip some strawberries in yogurt, then put them in the freezer for 20 minutes and voilà! Easiest snack ever! If you want to go even more healthy, try using Greek yogurt. Not only does Greek yogurt have half the sodium of regular yogurt, but it also has more protein.
Another question I get is how to make a healthy breakfast when you are in a rush or on the go. For this I would always recommend a breakfast smoothie.
My little trick is to make up bags of frozen fruit ahead of time or use up fruit that is going off or looking a bit sorry for itself, and then whizz them up in the morning with a bit of natural yogurt, fruit juice, milk and a handful of oats to give it a bit more sustenance as a breakfast alternative. You could also add a bit of fresh ginger or a pinch of cinnamon for some extra flavour! This is a great tip for those of you who are often guilty of skipping breakfast.
The gluteus maximus is the largest muscle in the human body. It is large and powerful because it has the job of keeping the rear of the body in an erect posture. So keep squatting!!
Fruit is a food group that can be confusing to low-carb eaters and diabetics. It is also an area where some of the popular low-carb diet plans differ, as some depend more upon glycemic index or glycemic load, while others just look at the amount of carbohydrate.
