It’s the week before your holiday that youv’e been looking forward to since your last and you have a panic on. Oh crap… DETOXING! Its a word dreaded by many and the thought of eating nothing for a certain amount of time is pretty daunting. After being asked and questioned about different methods of detoxing, by women who shared my pre holiday panic, I did a little research. Not many of us want to ‘starve’ ourselves for days on end and want quick results. Being somebody that… Read More →

One of the most commonly stated phrases is “I don’t want to do weights because I don’t want to bulk up” This is a myth and let me tell you why: It’s a conscious effort for a man to build muscle let alone women. We simply don’t have the hormones for it. Testosterone is the main hormone responsible for muscle mass. Normal testosterone levels in men are 200-1200 ng/dl. As for Women this is around 15-70 ng/dl, a fraction of testosterone in comparison to men. A man at the low end of the testosterone scale still has over double the amount of testosterone compared to a woman at the high end of the scale. It’s not possible to bulk up… Read More →

I strongly recommend including these in your diet if you don’t eat them already because of the benefits and nutritional… Read More →
