3 Ways to Create Emotional Balance for a Lighter Body

I was thinking over these past few days how important emotional balance is for a healthy, happy, light feeling BeUtiful body.  You see, we consume ’emotions’ much like we consume food, and they get either stored or digested, depending on how easily we can process them! However, when it comes to losing weight, ALL our […]

Taste Your Way to Skinny Jeans

Calorie counting and food arithmetic has certainly played it’s part in disconnecting us from the real nature of food.  Often, our decision of what to eat is based around carbohydrate content, whether it’s paleo friendly, vegan and/or on the latest diet plan we’ve decided to try and stick to this time!

The National Article: 7 Most Nutritious Foods

Time is of the essence, in every aspect of life, including our health.

Yogalife Article: Hormonal Harmony

Hormones are among the most powerful chemicals in the body.  They are the driving force behind stimulation, growth, circadian rhythms, metabolism regulation, activation of your immune system, reproductive organs, hunger, cravings, sexual arousal and, perhaps most important, how you feel.

The National Article: The Secret to a Flatter Stomach

The most powerful thing you can do for a flatter stomach in just one meal time.

Healthy Diet CANNOT Override Unhealthy Emotions

Three days ago I was speaking at the ‘Mind Body Soul Happiness Centre’ in Dubai.   The title of my talk was ‘Food Effects How U Feel’.  This is such an under appreciated, rarely talked about aspect of nutrition, but one that I am passionate about. So, I want to explain why, because it is one […]

The Beauty in Sleep

The Beauty in Sleep

Daytime naps, hmm, I’m not a fan.  But, sleep, now I love to sleep, just at the proper designated times, like night time!  Are you hearing my capricorn nature embedded in my self imposed doctrine here? However, I have a confession, just recently even I have had to give in and go against my own rules because I have […]
