My Philosophy

My philosophy is pretty simple really (isn’t life already too complicated?).

I believe that optimal-wellbeing is about looking at your whole life balance. It’s how you EAT, THINK & LIVE = WELLNESS.

In a nutshell, here it is:

  1. EAT WHAT WORKS FOR YOU. I’m not really into mainstream diets or fads (yes, they do all come & go). The way you should eat depends on what’s happening inside your body, your lifestyle, goals, family needs, budget, training levels and so on. There is no ‘one-size fits all’ approach – biochemical individuality means that everyone is unique.
  2. WELLNESS SHOULD BE A WAY OF LIFE. Our health & body changes constantly, but we tend to notice it more as we age. It’s about rethinking & resetting how you eat, think & live when things don’t feel quite right. But your health needs to stay on your ‘to do list’ – sometimes you’ll just need to make a few tweaks & other times a full overhaul. There is no set formula or rulebook of what will work for you.You need to roll with it & stay open to trying new things. The effort will be well worth it.
  3. MARKETING CLAIMS ON FOOD: BEWARE. We need to train ourselves to ignore the marketing on products & read the ingredients instead. For example, compare a packet of carrots to a box of cereal. Which is better for you? Exactly – carrots, the one without all the marketing hype. The more claims on a packet the more suspicious you should be. Why? There’s (almost) always a catch. Low fat or no fat often means high sugar. No sugar often means it has artificial sweeteners/chemicals. Natural means nothing! Gluten-free doesn’t necessarily mean it’s healthy either.
  4. CHALLENGE THE FOOD CHOICES YOU MAKE. The food you eat either makes you more healthy or less healthy. Simple. Real foods from mother-nature are nourishing, beneficial & healing. Whereas processed ‘food-like-products’ silently create imbalance & disease. It’s important to challenge the choices you make. Is there something better I could eat now? How can I get more veggies into this meal or snack?
