Why Apple Watch is the biggest step backwards for your health in the last decade

As technology paces forward, I get excited about what it means for everyone's health - tracking vitals, better access to information about your body, and faster feedback as to what's working and what's not, will all help us live more healthy lives and have the energy and physique we want. So why then is the new Watch from Apple the biggest leap backward since the food pyramid? Continue reading

Can you eat oysters on slow carb?

I had a great question the other day on my email, from reader Alan W. He asked "Can you eat oysters? I like raw oysters with lemon, fresh grated horse radish". So, I thought I'd share my reply, just in case you're thinking about hitting a dozen natural sometime this week. Continue reading

How do you go off slow carb??

This post is based on a very simple question. One that I get asked quite often, and one that came to me when I first read the book. If slow carb works so well, then what do you do when you reach your goal? I've taken a close look at this, because it's not at all clear, when you get started, where it's all heading. That's something I'd like to help you with. Continue reading

Are cravings a sign?

How often do you have a craving? How intense is it? For many people, perhaps for yourself, cravings can be a disruptive part of every single day, and they can be hard to ignore. Though sometimes we just feel like having a treat, there could be a much more serious message that a craving is sending to you. Find out now what that is, and how to take action to correct the problem. Continue reading

Is bodyfat the problem, or a symptom?

I'm sure that your body's shape and size is very important to you. It is to me too. And its not just about looking good, because bodyfat is one of those things that makes you look - and feel - like you're less healthy than you could be. So, you, me and everyone else tries things to reduce bodyfat. But, what if that means you are focusing on the symptom, not the cause? Sounds like a recipe for endless frustration. So what if excess bodyfat is actually a symptom? Continue reading

One guy vs all those meal replacement shakes

In the last few weeks, I seem to be frequently coming across 'meal replacement' shake mixes. Whether it's at the gym, around friends, or with clients - these drink mixes are popping up everywhere. Once you know their dark secret though, you'll probably look at them a little differently next time you see one. Continue reading

The definitive answer on nuts and the slow carb diet

It's a question that gets asked from time to time - if we are avoiding 'white' carbohydrates, and eating protein and some fat.. then why no nuts? Maybe some are ok, and some aren't? If you have been wondering about nuts on the slow carb diet, or if you have been snacking on nuts with your slow carb diet, you probably want to read this - all you need to know about nuts is right here.

Why the food pyramid makes me angry

If you read this site often, you'll know I don't like to speak badly of something, or anyone, for that matter, and like to focus on 'how to' and not 'why you can't' types of ideas. Today, however, I've reached the end of my rope with one very common sight around the world - the food pyramid. It takes a lot for me to get worked up about something, but I have been astonished too many times now - at people's beliefs, attitudes and the government's inaction of changing their recommendations so that people can be healthier in their dietary habits. So, it's time to explain why the food pyramid makes me furious, and why I wish I could turn back time and delete it entirely. Continue reading

Why we get fat – finally understanding the process

If you have ever heard someone saying fat loss or fat gain is 'simple thermodynamics - calories in, calories out', or if you have ever heard or read the only way to lose fat is to enter a diet that has a calorie deficit (less calories in than going 'out') then this is critical information you cannot afford to miss. Everyone should be taught this information in school. This couldn't have come soon enough. It's the missing piece that I had always been looking for, but never found easily. Completing a recent cross-country drive gave me a chance to listen, uninterrupted, to an excellent audio book on the topic, and I have found it revolutionary. Continue reading
