For the last few days, I’ve had a nasty cold and despite sleeping lots, and taking my vitamins, getting a good sweat helps get the toxins and infection out quicker; especially when there’s a deep nasty cough involved :(. This is what I do to speed up recovery from a cold, and even follow as…

Recently I started incorporating IF (intermittent fasting) to my routine to see if the purported benefits were as good as the studies say. And I have to happily admit, they are better than I expected. I’m leaner than I’ve been in a long time; I’m literally 2-3 pounds away from stepping on stage and competing…

  I don’t know about you, but I have never questioned nutrition labels before. Call me naive but I always trusted what was stated on the label was true. Didn’t we all? …. Luckily, we have a governing body called the CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) that does this for us.   They follow strict…

For anyone looking to bio hack their health and make dieting easier, you would have heard and most likely ingested something with sugar alcohols. They are mostly synthetic products (man-made), except for a couple, that taste like sugar, have a negligible effect on blood sugar, but have minimal or no calories, or so we thought……

Whether we love it or hate it, Winter is here and that means less time outdoors and less exposure to the sun. It may not seem like it should really affect us, but it does.

Who doesn’t love Fall, with the fresh crisp air and the changing colours of the trees. And of course we can’t forget all of the pumpkin related drinks and pastries being marketed everywhere. Hence this month’s blog, three recipes that are a healthier version of the originals; yet still taste great. Pumpkin Spiced Latte The…

Nicole is in the spotlight this month because of her commitment to living the fit life and sticking to the program just as fully as when she was competing in our 10 Week Body Transformation Challenge (which she won :)) She came to us to lose weight and look great for her upcoming wedding in…

This is something all women should be aware of as a way of understanding why things change throughout the month, when it comes to our fitness program. Hormonal changes do cause a number of changes when we workout; whether we are at our strongest or struggle with finishing a cardio session. And there is a…

This is one of my daily meals that I look forward to each night. Its quick to prepare, has a mix of different textures and great flavours. Call me strange, but I consider it a mock version of a peanut butter & ham sandwich. The barbecue flavoured broad beans are crunchy and tastes just like…

As most people have probably heard, there’s a new diet around and its called the Ketogenic diet.

Things tend to…
