Around Christmas time last year I had a final session with a female client before she left for the holidays. In this session she managed to perform a full pull up for the first time, as well as squat her bodyweight for reps.

She was delighted with the improvements she had made over the previous months and was looking forwarded to increasing her strength when she returned after the new year. So I began planning a new program looking to push her strength even higher.

Everyone has stress, some more than others. I myself am the type of person who tends to worry about situations, which don’t warrant the stress. For example, showing up on time when meeting a friend (even though punctuality is becoming a forgotten art form, but that’s a different matter).

Stress tends to be portrayed as bad, negatively impacting on our health and generally just a menace to society! While this can be true in certain circumstances, stress=bad isn’t quite the full story.

A fallacy is a statement which is thought to be true, however is based on unsound arguments. Fallacies are committed regularly as logical assumptions are made, which although seem to be correct, don’t have evidence to back it up.

For example, a fallacy is committed if I was to say all Scottish people were delighted to see England eliminated from the European Championship. Now, this seems as though it would most likely be correct, BUT right there is when the fallacy kicks in!

Last week Health by Science attended a brilliant event hosted by Sense About Science, an independent campaigning charity that challenges the misrepresentation of science and evidence in public life.

They run an excellent campaign called Ask For Evidence, a public campaign to help people request for themselves the evidence behind news stories, marketing claims and policies.

Summary:

Fats are essential if we want to look our best and be healthy.

In today’s society fats have been demonised and it’s intuitive to think fat makes you fat. But it does not.

A good target is to achieve at least 3 thumbs of good quality fats (e.g. 50g) a day.

Good sources of fats include olive oil, nuts, avocado, nut butter.

We are not trying to eliminate poor quality fats from our diet but rather control them better.

Summary:

Many of us know what to do (e.g. eat lots of fruit and veg and a varied balanced diet etc.) but have struggled with how to do it.

Every successful weight loss client uses different methods unique to their history, lifestyle, preferences and goals.

The one thing that they all have in common however is that they follow the principles of good nutrition, consistently.

Today we’ll share these principles with you.

Our environment strongly affects our thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.

In other words, only keep things that you should consume.

Recent research shows that our “willpower muscle” can be strengthened with practice.
