Truesapiens….. today we are talking ‘cheat meals’. Is it okay to ‘cheat’ on your diet or eating plan? The concept of ‘Cheat Meals’ Quite often I am asked about the concept of ‘cheat meals’. What I think of them, whether clients are ‘allowed’ them, all that jazz. I’ll try to remain calm and ‘un-sassy’ (if that’s a term). But really, all I want to do is scream ‘NEVER, THE CONCEPT IS NOTHING SHORT OF RIDICULOUS AND DAMAGING’! But you know how it is here, we like to deliver knowledge, not emotionally driven posts. I also understand that everyone is an
Recently it was International Women’s Day and I am ALL about celebrating women. What their glorious bodies can do and how STRONG and impressive we can all be, both mentally and physically. To mark the occasion, I wanted to chat about something loosely related. We, as women, for such a long time, have been told by society that smaller is better in most cases, and we have essentially spent most of our lives fuelling to shrink ourselves. Well, no more! Let’s chat about how we can fuel for fitness. Fuel so we can perform as optimally as we can in our

Defining the winning mindset A winning mindset is one that sees challenges as opportunities instead of roadblocks. One that knows mediocrity is not an option and strives…...
What is the key to staying on the path to success; whatever that may mean to you? Surprisingly, the answer isn’t willpower. Success or failure isn’t determined by intention or willpower. Sure, intention plays a part because if there was no initial goal, a desired outcome would be unlikely, if not impossible. But what has a more powerful bearing on success? The human brain Basically talking, there are two parts to your brain when it comes to decision making. The ‘instinctive’ and the ‘logical’. The part of the brain that is instinctive, your ‘primal brain’ is called the Medulla. The
Are our children getting the positive examples and inspiration they need to develop their own successful habits? Children depend on their parents for their behaviours and lifestyle habits, and parents, through their attitudes, actions and knowledge, influence their futures. Children learn by imitation: monkey see, monkey do. After all, we do compare them to sponges. That’s because they model their own behaviour on what they see around them. Are the ‘average’ majority badly letting the next generations down? A fundamental example The example that we set as parents is fundamental to their adoption of healthy lifestyle habits. Studies have consistently shown
The challenge was simple. To not eat or drink, other than coffee and water, for a 48 hour period. The thought behind it My 48 hour fast challenge isn’t about following any sort of trendy fad. It was nothing to do with ‘detox’ or anything to do with intermittent fasting. So why did I fast for 48 hours? Simply to see if I could do it. How it would make me feel, physically and psychologically and to test myself. The planning (or absence of it) 5pm on a Thursday evening. Finish my meal and decide to start the 48 hour
