Why Broccoli is my favourite vegetable

Hate it or love it, broccoli has been the bane of kid’s lives since it was first introduced in the Mediterranean almost 1,000 years ago and was eventually introduced to England in the 1700s.

10 Tips to start gaining muscle

Eat enough protein

You can’t build muscle without putting in the building blocks. Dietary protein is required to build muscle & the best sources come from animals (poultry, fish, beef, dairy).

Look after your gut

You aren’t what you eat, you are what you digest and absorb. If you have an unhealthy gastrointestinal tract … Read more

5 most common fat loss myths

Myth 1. Don’t eat carbs in the evening
The myth I probably here most is that you shouldn’t consume carbohydrates after 6pm otherwise they will be stored as fat (I even hear trainers telling their clients this).
I can tell you that this is COMPLETELY untrue.
Fat storage all depends on your calorie intake, overall diet and hormonal/physical health versus how much you are burning and how hard you’re training.
TO MANY CALORIES CONSUMED VS. NOT ENOUGH BURNED = STORED ENERGY.
Nearly all of my clients will consume carbohydrates after training and most will train in the evening. If carbohydrates in the evening are causing you to … Read more
