There is no objective definition of a ‘cheat meal’, but for the purposes of this post, I’m going to assume that most people treat it as a meal which might have a significantly higher calorie content than the other meals they usually consume throughout the week, and one which might have a different macronutrient split; […]
If you want to lose weight, then you’ll need to be in a caloric deficit, period.
In other words, you’ll need to be burning off more calories than you’re taking in on a daily basis, over an extended period of time.
Sounds easy doesn’t it? And if you have all day to weigh and measure your food, […]
How many times have you people saying that they’re eating ‘clean’?
‘Clean Food’ is a buzzword that’s rife in fitness circles at the moment, and while you could just dismiss it as another vacuous hashtag, it’s ubiquity can be confusing for those that don’t know any better.
So what is clean food? Well, it isn’t anything.
That’s right, […]
Know anyone who’s on a diet at the moment? Let me have a guess what was the first thing they decided to ‘cut out’…

You might have seen it plastered all over social media, or heard it lauded by the recumbent bike-dwellers at the gym; Juice Plus is apparently the latest in a long line of miracle diets guaranteed to help you shed pounds. Except it’s bullshit.
Like all the other diets you’ve tried, Atkins, Dukan, Cambridge, South Beach, Cabbage […]
Being ‘on a diet’ is cool, if you’re not dieting then what exactly are you doing with your life? How can you possibly expect to get thin if you’re not on some ridiculous, temporary plan that demonizes one type of food, which has obviously been the root of all your problems, all this time?

Shrove Tuesday. Excellent, another day when you’re encouraged, nay, virtually forced to eat yet more shitty food. And you’d only just got rid of that layer of Christmas fat.
Well, as with most bad food choices, there is another way. You can join the droves of comfort eaters without slipping into a dark underworld of sugar […]
