Standing on the scales

Chris, I’m Doing Everything Right……

Chris, I’m Doing Everything Right…… But I’m not losing any weight…I hear this many times, unfortunately. And there’s nothing worse than feeling like you’re doing it all but not getting the results.A number of things might be happening. So let’s explore them:


Consistency vs intensity

I’m sure we’ve all seen it on FB and Instagram. The posts that go:

I’ve smashed a killer workout
I’m so hard, I’ve run xxx. I’ve squatted xxx
I’m so sore, I did xxx

These posts shout out about Intensity. But we hardly hear anything about Consistency.

Calories burnt irrelevant

Why Calories Burnt is Irrelevant

Calories Burnt in a Workout is Irrelevant . The number of calories burnt is a totally useless indicator of whether a workout is good or bad. Read on to learn why.

Moroccan Cod

Moroccan Cod and Bulgar Salad

Here’s a super light fish dish for you to try. Do you like eating fish? I do, but sometimes I run out of inspiration on what to do with it!


Slow Cooker Chicken Fajitas

These fajitas had rave reviews with the participants of my Nutrition Course. And I halved the spices and even my fussy children ate them! 

Mushroom Soup

Mushroom Soup

Sometimes you just want a nice a simple soup! Easy to make and with none of the shop-bought nasties…

Fun fact: I hated mushrooms as a child and drove my mum mad picking them out of everything. Nowadays I add mushrooms to loads of meals and erm, I love them. Sorry mum!

Turkey Broccoli Stirfry

Turkey and Broccoli Stirfry

I’m on a quest to expand my repertoire of family meals. My kids (6 and 8) are fussy eaters – in particular they don’t like things mixed together. As a result we eat alot of meat and 2 veg. Or fish and 2 veg. Or chicken and 2 veg. You get the picture. It’s really boring for the adults. 

So I’m trying this broccoli and turkey stirfry this weekend. Becasue they like noodles, And turkey. And broccoli… It’s super simple but should be quite tasty too.

We shall see!
