Weight Gain and Diet You’ve Been Lied To.

If you’re still struggling with weight gain and your diet is still the same, you need to change your thinking before anything else.  This will make the whole process more achievable because it’s really not your fault.  In the last 50 years we have all been lied to on a major scale when it comes to Nutrition and the problems we face around weight gain. We have all succumbed to the massive marketing machine that is our local Supermarket.  Bright shiny packaging and discounted offers have put us in to a rut when it comes to food and nutrition.  The […] Read more »

Staying Healthy – What’s Your Number?

Staying healthy in a study led by Dr Sandra Mandic, of the University of Otego in Dunedin, New Zealand, of nearly 4,400 healthy US adults, found that the 20% with the lowest physical fitness levels were twice as likely to die over the next nine years as the 20% with the next lowest fitness levels. In other words, if you can get yourself out of the least fit 20% of the population, you can double your survival chances.   http://www.menshealthforum.org.uk/walking/19595-unfit-start-here#sthash.MSjGF22k.dpuf Now I don’t know about you, but I like percentages, you always know where you are at a glance.  So where […] Read more »

Fitness At Christmas

Family Christmas

Well it’s here again, Christmas.  How do we keep our fitness at Christmas? It’s that time of year when we eat, drink and be merry.  Let’s face it; we’re all up for a bit of that!  In Winter we always want to eat more anyway, and Christmas is the time when we can, or can we? I’ve put on a bit of weight this week.  I’ve been out and about, a few Parties, some Cake and Mince Pies – I’ve always had a sweet tooth! But I’m not going to worry about it because I know where I am with this eat, drink […] Read more »

Winter And Having No Weight Gain

 I’ve just had lunch and got to thinking about winter food and having no weight gain again like last year, and how it’s been like this for the last few years since I tamed the beast.  I was thinking how good it is to have my weight under control when so many guys seem to be in a constant battle with their food.  I’m sitting here in Somerset in the UK today, the weather is better than it was in July, well actually… May, June and July for that matter.  We’ve had no real summer as such, just lots of […] Read more »

Weight Gain It’s All In The Mind

Here’s a hard one. Are you overweight? Have you put on a few pounds? Have you “piled” it on over the last few years? Have you got a “beer belly” or a “bread basket”? Have you got a “muffin top”? Are you just plain fat! Woah! We don’t like that one. A bit nearer the truth though. Maybe you’ve probably heard one or more of those phrases and I probably could have gone on, and written at least another dozen. Words and phrases that people use, some more negative than others, but always said in a way that tries to […] Read more »
