Do you see yourself as you are?

So do you see yourself as you are? I saw this article in the Daily Mail today and it got me to thinking… Five years for us to admit to ourselves that we no longer look how we think we do. Can that possibly be true. Well yes – I rather suspect it might well… Read More

Motivation, procrastination and pain

motivation, procrastination and pain

I have had one of those days today. One of those days where everything just seemed unnecessarily difficult. I had all the motivation of an unmotivated sloth. A breed not famous for their go get ‘em attitude to life. Motivation, procrastination and pain – the key. I have had 2 months to do my homework… Read More

judging of women based on their size and shape

Posted on 11th April 2016 in Weight Loss category.

The endless judging of women based on their size and shape seems to be getting sillier and sillier. First we were supposed to look down on the miserably thin, unhappy and unhealthy models wandering down the cat walk. I mean some of them certainly do look pretty unwell but hey-ho. Each to their own. There… Read More

Most of the people reading this have some kind of Food issues. Else you know someone who does, or you are working with people who do, or something along those lines. If that’s not the case I have no idea why you would be reading my words of wisdom as that pretty much is what… Read More

Diet pills

Diet pills

The Sunday papers were awash with crazy articles today. I ended up ripping 4 of the features out of the paper. Normally I am gripped by the silly diet advice. Today though my old friends the Diet pills were back on the agenda. This is the article from the Sunday Times: http://www.thesundaytimes.co.uk/sto/news/article1672756.ece Who knew?

Control what you can

Control what you can

Picking your battles or how to Control what you can. This is one of those issues that can torpedo more than just weight loss efforts. It can destroy any efforts for change, be they in the workplace, home or personal goals. This is well demonstrated by the following Robin Skynner quote… “If people can’t control… Read More

Gut health and weight loss

Posted on 20th January 2016 in Weight Loss category.
Gut health and weight loss

Gut health and weight loss is closely linked. Your digestive system has its own communication system and affects much more of your health than anyone previously believed. The link between certain bacteria in the gut and depression symptoms has been proven. Difficult to believe that what is going on down below can have such a… Read More

Stress and your weight loss

Posted on 12th January 2016 in Weight Loss category.
Stress and your weight loss

Stress and your weight loss are intrinsically linked. Once again I am lampooning the calorie in versus calorie out argument. Your level of stress has no direct effect on your intake of calories and OK it has a bit of an effect on the number of calories burnt as your heart rate goes up. But… Read More

Hormones and weight loss

Hormones and weight loss

Hormones and weight loss are intrinsically linked. Hormones are more than just what puts a wriggle in your stride (how’s that for a tortured metaphor)? They are controlling much more than you think they are. Hormones actually regulate huge amounts of what is going on in your body. Insulin is a hormone – the one… Read More

dangerous and stupid diet drugs

  I have written about the dangerous and stupid things that people do to lose weight before. I write about it from a place of knowledge because I have done more than a few of them myself over the years. I wrote a few months ago about DNP and why it’s so dangerous. This guy… Read More

92% Failure rate for everyone

Posted on 1st January 2016 in Uncategorised, Weight Loss category.

There is a 92% failure rate on all New Year’s Resolutions. Isn’t that a sad statistic?? Why on earth do we believe that on the 1st of January we are suddenly going to be able to live our lives in a radically different way? There is no magical pixie (that I am aware of) who is… Read More

Weightloss Workshop 5 pillars

It’s that time of year when all we see and hear about is food, glorious food – and drink and then more food. Not so much a time for thinking about Weightloss Workshop and how to make 2016 a great year. It’s a time for celebration and family and friends and all sorts of lovely… Read More

stress and losing weight

stress and losing weight

The link between levels of stress and losing weight is a really interesting one. It’s also a connection that people fail to appreciate as being a bit of a game changer. I am moving house today. As I sit here typing there are three (I think Polish) men squirrelling through my every possession slamming them… Read More

When is it good value?

When is it good value?

One of the questions I am most often asked is “When is it good value?” about the value of a stay at NuBeginnings. There is no amount of wealth that can make up for poor health. So for that reason alone NuBeginnings is exceptionally good value. There’s no denying it – we are not a… Read More
