Why Dieting is not the answer this New Year

“My Goal this year is to lose 5 kilos” – said millions of women around the world at the beginning of each New Year.

Food, Emotions + Fasting

Over the last few months I’ve found myself using food as a coping mechanism.

To cure boredom.

Suppress feelings.

Soothe stress.

Celebrate wins.

Distract myself from reality.

I then realised I could not remember the last time I had felt the sensation of hunger. Hunger had been my biggest fear over the two decades of on-and-off dieting I had endured. All the restriction, counting of calories and concern with weight. …

I’m sorry for what I said when… I felt Fat.

Yes I thought this title would draw your attention.

As women we just love the F word. We use it to talk to ourselves and we use it to describe how we are feeling and as a way to connect to one another. When the truth is what we really feel is unworthy, unlovable, unattractive, ugly, uncomfortable, disconnected… the list goes on.

As many of you know I am all …

My Number #1 Health Tip

Health to me for a long time equated to dieting and the foods I was putting into my body. I was obsessed with food and my physique so naturally I considered myself a health expert.

In my time I have attempted almost every diet under the sun. You name it – I’ve most likely tried it.

From cabbage soup, to weight watchers meetings, quitting sugar and taking fat blaster tablets …

How not to be a weirdo around food.

 

Once upon a time I was terrified of fat. I was doing everything in my power to avoid fattening foods. To balance this out I binged on sugary snacks and fruit flavoured yogurt.

Soon carbohydrates were considered evil. I avoided grains at all costs. Even fruit became off limits. I was left feeling bloated and constipated.

Then I jumped on the I quit sugar bandwagon. I would spend hours …

Your Keys to a Powerful Day

There was a time, not so long ago, where I would awaken each morning and just allow my day to happen.

From the moment my alarm went off I would groan to myself ‘Oh I’m so tired’ and then I would proceed to  check my email inbox, social media notifications and WhatsApp messages all within minutes of opening my eyes. This was a surefire recipe for high anxiety levels and …
