How to Stress Less & Love Yourself More

How to Stress Less & Love Yourself More

Stress & Release We are such creatures of taking everything personally and feeling the weight of hurt and pain, rejection or worth. I love Anthony Hopkins philosophy that it’s none of my business what other’s think of me. The problem is I didn’t know that as a teenager and took EVERYTHING personally. Until a few years ago, well into my thirties, my mind and body was filled with the anguish of thinking I wasn’t good enough, pretty enough, and especially not thin enough… I ended up spending the majority of my life creating my own internal stress and contributing to my

Lose the Stress and Lose the Weight

Lose the Stress and Lose the Weight

Mind-Body Weight Loss If you’re stressed out, worried, fearful or lonely, the impact on your health is immediate and the hormonal imbalances created are the same imbalances that cause food cravings, which also lead to weight gain. This stress, tension and fear might be a demanding job, a hectic family life, an abusive spouse or any of the millions of emotional challenges we all face in life—but the biochemical result is the same. Your hormones become imbalanced, your food cravings increase, and you’ll very likely gain weight. As time goes on, your cortisol levels rise, your blood sugar sky-rockets, your

Benefits of Blending Your Greens for Vitality, Health & Wellbeing

Benefits of Blending Your Greens for Vitality, Health & Wellbeing

Super Greens! Ok, be honest with yourself now. How many percentage of leafy greens, vegetables and fruits do you eat in a day? A week? What percentage of your nutrient intake is processed, packaged, refined and tinned or loaded with fat, sugar and salt? Just allowing yourself some time to consider what you’re actually eating and putting into your body can be a realisation that your eating habits and choices perhaps aren’t so healthy after all. Depending on whether your diet is predominantly full of leafy greens, vegetables and fruits or packed full of chemicals, toxins, fat, sugar and salt, you

Peppermint Slice Recipe Paleo Raw Vegan Unrefined

Peppermint Slice Recipe Paleo Raw Vegan Unrefined

My Famous Peppermint Slice Recipe! I’ve always loved peppermint slice! Just loved going by the bakery whenever I felt the yearning for a chocolate biscuit base with a dark chocolate topping, sandwiching a thick layer of sweet, creamy peppermint icing! Those were the days when I had little knowledge of what I was eating and had no interest in learning what it was doing to my blood sugar, insulin or hormones. Holistic health wasn’t something I practised back then and nutrition wasn’t something I took much notice of. These days I don’t go the bakery. Haven’t for years. But I do still enjoy

Transform your mind, body and life for wellness

Transform your mind, body and life for wellness

From Medication to Freedom! How my Achieving Your Wellness coaching program has helped my client move from medication to freedom. I have an intelligent, insightful and attractive young client who came to meet and work with me late last year in 2013. At only 18 she had spent years on anti-depressants suffering low moods, unhappiness, isolation and body image concerns that bordered on disordered eating. Her dreams of travel, true happiness, connection and vibrant health were being hindered by limiting beliefs and unhealthy habits and behaviours. She came to me with a desperate need to combat the life she had created for herself and turn

How to Make a Dark Raw Chocolate Pizza

How to Make a Dark Raw Chocolate Pizza

Raw Chocolate Pizza The Christmas Version! Pizza was never my favourite food. In fact a homemade group effort pizza was the first food item that contributed to my inaugural Bulimic offering when I was much younger. I’ve since made peace with it by making my own gluten free and cauliflower versions, decorating with fresh, whole, natural and colourful toppings that are nutrient dense and pack a punch of flavour. Yummy clean eating that doesn’t cause digestive (or emotional) upsets. Being the raw chocolatier and recipe creator that I am, it was only time that I came up with a raw

Healthy Sexy Slow Eating

Healthy Sexy Slow Eating

Pleasure Eating By Marc David, Institute for the Psychology of Eating In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism in 2009, eating a meal quickly rather than at a slow pace, diminishes the release of hormones in the gut that help create the feeling of being full. When these hormones – specifically PYY and GLP-1 are low, the unwanted result is simply this: overeating. The implication here is that the body needs time to regulate the chemical messengers that control our food intake. According to another study, published in the British Medical Journal in October 2008

5 Foods to Uplift A Depressed Mind

5 Foods to Uplift A Depressed Mind

Feeling Low? Try these uplifting foods! Many of you have heard me talk or write about the importance of nutrients and cell nourishment in creating the neuro-nutrients (brain food), neurotransmitters and hormones to fuel the communication channels between the brain and body. Every bit of food we eat – our nutrition quality – can create direct and immediate chemical changes within the body and brain to improve mood, energy, concentration, digestion, metabolism and general wellbeing. We literally rely on the foods we eat to create the nutrients we need for every function within the body. Combine our daily life stressors on top of our

Sugar Facts For Your Health & Waistline

Sugar Facts For Your Health & Waistline

The Facts About Sugar By Dr Libby (Check out My Top 5 Natural Sweeteners) Sugar is the hot topic in the nutrition world at the moment. It is no secret to many that we are eating too much of what has been coined by some as “white poison.” The World Health Organizations (WHO) recommends that the intake of sugars be less than 10 percent of total energy intake. Yet those living in Australia and New Zealand are having an amount that far exceeds this. What is most surprising is just how far this substance has invaded the modern diet. Salad dressings,

Do you suffer from belly fat, sugar cravings and tiredness?

Do you suffer from belly fat, sugar cravings and tiredness?

Mood swings, sugar cravings, belly fat! When I entered into a purposeful recovery from my Bulimia Nervosa, I really didn’t know much at all about just how much I’d confused my hormones. I had no understanding whatsoever about how our food literally creates our hormones and chemical messengers to transport information and feedback between the body and brain. I didn’t understand biochemistry, or blood chemistry, and I certainly didn’t realise how food chemistry affected brain chemistry – I hated science and maths at school! Now I do know these things. I’ve researched, I’ve suffered, I’ve lost and I’ve gained. And now I can share
