Water and Health

Have you heard about the latest research on water consumption? The good news is more science confirms drinking water about 1/2 hour before meals can contribute to weight loss and a healthier lifestyle.

I was interviewed by Channel 9 Melbourne news today for a feature on tonight’s 4:30pm and 6:00pm bulletin. Tune in for my thoughts. Click here for the link.

The Impact of Technology on Your Wellbeing

It’s now midway through winter in Australia, many of my clients are spending longer hours immersed in technology, watching TV and playing games on the ipad.

However, this may be at a cost to health.

Check out my latest clip on the impact of technology use (particularly late night technology use) on your wellbeing. I’d love to know what you think.

The New Food Pyramid

Food Pyramid

Food Pyramid

Exciting news in the Nutrition world is the official launch of the new Food Pyramid. After 15 years it has been updated!

 

The new pyramid separates each layer into 5 specific food groups. Plant based foods are still the “eat most” category; with fruit, vegetables and legumes in the largest layer.

The grain section now contains quinoa and soba noodles which reflects how our culture has evolved.

 However, my favourite alteration is the addition of herbs and spices. They are packed full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and an excellent flavour enhancer so less salt can be used.

 Only 7% of Australians eat enough vegetables and less than half consume enough fruit.

Quite simple, quite the fad diets and consume more plant matter.

There is conflicting and inaccurate health and wellness information publicised in the media. If followed, there may be disastrous consequences to one’s health.

As such, this resource was created to house highly qualified and credible nutrition professionals and bloggers; with recognised nutrition education, training and skills that you can trust.

I’m honoured and humbled to be included in this list.

I’d love you to take a look and let me know what you think xx
