I see so many people spinning their wheels when it comes to building muscle, so this episode covers the 5 most common mistakes I see people making, and what to do instead.

You’ve just eaten a burger, and some chips…and a few slices of pizza…and washed it down with some ice-cream and now you’re regretting the whole situation and feeling pretty damn uncomfortable.

So in this episode, I’m going to show you how I would troubleshoot this situation with a client of mine if someone reached out to me and said that they had massively over-eaten - because you’re a human, you have taste buds, and this ...

In this week’s episode I’m excited to have friend, personal trainer, photographer and business owner Jenny Chan back behind the mic.

Jen has completed the 75 HARD Program (by entrepreneur Andy Frisella) not once, but twice, and although it’s often perceived as a fitness or weightloss challenge, what we find out is that it’s far more about mindset, mental resilience and forging a level of self-belief that carries over into ...

So in this episode I show you how I would troubleshoot these situations with clients I work with - I look at when you should eat breakfast, what you should eat for breakfast, how to manage your morning routine to better allow you to eat breakfast, and if ...

In this episode I’m talking all things protein powder because, quite frankly, supplement stores aren’t always the most accurate (or… impartial) source of information.

If I’ve done my job well, then hopefully this episode should leave you knowing the difference between a WPI and a WPC, what to look for in a good protein powder, and if you actually need to be including protein powder in your diet.

“I’m in a calorie deficit but I’m not losing weight - what am I doing wrong?” is one of the most common phrases I hear as a Sports Nutritionist.

And I completely understand how frustrating this can be when, despite your best efforts, you feel like you’re spinning your wheels.

But (hopefully!) I can help. In this episode I explain what a calorie deficit is, and also look at how I would trouble-shoot this situation...

Let's talk about eating at night-time..

For some reason, eating at night-time seems to be a contentious topic and there is a lot of information (mis-information?) out there from people telling you what you should (or should not) eat after 7pm.

So should you eat after 7pm? What happens if you eat carbs after 7pm? And is it really ok to eat carbs after 7pm? Join me on this week's episode to find out.

One of the most common questions that comes up right now is how best to navigate Christmas functions, work parties and social engagements without completely falling off the bandwagon.

Believe it or not, there can be a middle ground where you simply go out, enjoy a few different foods, have a couple of drinks, and then carry on as usual the next day.

If you struggle with an all-or-nothing approach over this time, t...

Pre-workout supplements come in so many forms! Some people swear by them, while others are happy to get by on a banana and a coffee.

The supplement industry is a multi-billion dollar industry and if a supplement claims something that is too good to be true, then it probably is!

When it comes to weight loss, the message that is often put forward is that if you want to be successful, then you have to count calories, track macros, or follow a meal plan.

And yes, although these are all valid options, they’re definitely not the only way to successfully achieve your weight loss goals.

So can you lose weight without counting calories? And if so, how would you do this? Tune in to find out!

When it comes to exercise, what is considered a 'normal' amount of exercise is going to vary between individuals.

Factors such as someone's personal goals, lifestyle, time constraints, family and work commitments , can make it a challenge to put any objective parameters around quantifying how much exercise is considered normal.

So rather than looking at what is ‘normal’ when it comes to exercise, I ...
