Trust Your Inner Wisdom (and break free from Dieting)

Trust Your Inner Wisdom (and break free from Dieting)

The Wisdom of Dieting Who’s been on a diet before – lost weight, regained weight and done the whole thing over again? The word ‘diet’ has evolved over many years of experimentation. It used to summarise your daily assortment of nutrients or food intake, but over the years ‘diet and dieting’ have become more about restriction, starvation and deprivation. When we don’t like our reflection, especially those thighs and that stomach, we tend to blame our body and put it on a diet. When we have no energy and feel bad about ourselves, we often think we’re not trying hard

How to make the most Tastiest Healthy Basil Pesto (Recipe)

Basil Pesto Recipe I LOVE making my healthy pestos and dips! Who needs the unnecessary oils, preservatives and sugars in commercial dips when it’s so easy to whip up your own and bump up your nutrient intake. I just love being able to walk out the backyard and pick from our ever-growing herb and vegetable garden and mix them with some beautiful cold pressed macadamia, coconut or olive oils, nuts, seeds, apple cider vinegar, garlic, citrus juices and good old cracked pepper and sea salt…. YUM! Even though it takes time and devotion to keep nurturing your garden, the rewards

Do You Feel Safe in Your Body?

Do You Feel Safe in Your Body?

That weighty feeling Who’s been on a “diet” before – lost weight, regained weight and done the whole thing over again? I’ve tried numerous diets over the years and a few methods I made up myself. But nothing ever truly worked until I learned to listen to my thoughts and understand what my beliefs and fears were saying to me unconsciously, continuing to trigger my fat storing hormones. What’s the difference between losing weight and regaining, and losing weight and staying there? It’s our emotional, mental and spiritual experience of whether we feel “safe” at a lower weight and comfortable

What Works When Dieting Doesn’t

What Works When Dieting Doesn't

Dieting Disasters It annoys and saddens me when people ask, “So what diet do you follow Viki?” Let’s be clear: I DON’T diet. I spent years dieting and it got me nowhere. I tried diet after diet. I was hungry, miserable, tired, cranky and didn’t really learn much at all about myself, my body or why I was eating the way I was, to get to that point in the first place. Following a plan was challenging because I wasn’t allowed to be in control. I had to follow what was laid out in front of me and make myself adhere

Take positive steps forward and climb mountains of fitness

Take positive steps forward and climb mountains of fitness

Move it or lose it This morning we challenged our fitness climbing Tabletop Mountain, on the Toowoomba range, for the fourth time in a week. spokeconsulting.com/statistics/loans for unemployment benefits Last Saturday morning. Wednesday morning. Friday morning. And today – Sunday morning –  the first time with the children. Last Saturday’s effort was the second time we’d ever climbed this local historic mountain. The first time we climbed it in 2011 was memorable, and not just because we left the water in the car! Rather because: 1. We took the children (slow & dramatic!) 2. It was before Beloveds knee surgery when his

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

Merry Christmas + Happy Eating Tips on Xmas Day

MERRY CHRISTMAS + happy eating tips! It’s that time of year again – when many of us freak out at the abundant supply of festive food that is often on our “forbidden/bad/diet says no” lists. http://susieandmedays.com/html/ Personally I don’t struggle with festive food like I used to in the throws of my Eating Disorder days. I simply know what I’m eating by preparing many foods myself with whole, natural and nutrient dense freshness. If I can’t really tell what’s in the food on the serving plates I don’t eat it. I always make sure that I continue to get up and

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

Healthy Chocolate Mousse | Dairy & Sugar Free, Vegan, Paleo

Healthy Chocolate Mousse | Dairy & Sugar Free, Vegan, Paleo

Chocolate Mousse Anyone?! I do love a chocolate mousse that’s smooth, creamy, rich and easy to eat! I don’t like the feeling of a heavy, bloated, queasy and bilious tummy afterward though! Our house has a variety of tastebuds, like most families do, which sometimes means a harder task in pleasing everyone. It becomes a challenge to create something that doesn’t contain the flavour or aroma of one particular food yet still provides the texture so that everyone will love it. Even though bananas are a wonderful source of fibre, iron, potassium, B vitamins and tryptophan, Mr 12 is NOT a fan! So chocolate mousse made with fresh

Natural, Functional and Fun Movement for Energy, Strength and Weight Loss

Natural Movement, Real Food, Healthy Mindset Last week on my way home from a 4 day practitioner retreat on the beautiful Sunshine Coast, I stopped into Buderim Forest Park to meet with Clint and Aimee from Primal Influence. They view health and fitness from a similar holistic approach as I do, which is why I wanted to talk with them about what they do, how they do it and why. Clint came from a background of not being able to enjoy a lot of physical activity because of his size. This resonated with where I started many years ago at holding

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,
