Psychological hunger is head hunger and originates in your mind, not your stomach. Here are some strategies to help deal with it.
Doesn’t that sound enticing? Take this shake, swallow those fat burner pills, or follow a very rigid and very low calorie diet and fat will magically melt off you. Does it work? But more importantly, do the results last?
Winter is an even more challenging time to stay on track with healthy eating because we are inside more, it is cold and the nights are long. Most people admit to eating because they are bored. When you have time on your hands what do you think of? Certainly not dropping to the floor and doing 20 press ups.
Carbohydrate addiction, is it even a real thing? In my 16 years plus of working with clients, specialising in fat loss, I am convinced that it is ‘a thing’. I haven’t yet met a client who, when going through a tough time, craved eating a chicken leg or a piece of broccoli!
The stats for ‘dieters’ keeping lost weight off are pretty grim, with only about 5% achieving long term success. How sad and dispiriting is that. Does it have to happen? Of course not, but you have to realise that whatever you did to lose weight in the first instance has to become a long term habit.
The age-old dilemma of what to have for dinner. After a busy day at work, or wrangling children, often the last thing you want to have to think about is what’s for dinner. It can be even more challenging if you are catering to different palates and family members needing to eat at different times. What is the best way to manage this?
This is for you if you want to find your oomph and get back into good eating and lifestyle habits over a 6 week period.
Long term weight loss and healthy living isn’t about being perfect, it is about perseverance. It is about eating well most of the time and when you do have a bit of a wobble, just get back into a healthy regime ASAP. Holidays, weekends, birthdays, parties, there are plenty of occasions ready to trip us up, and they do.
When I first started working with clients the advice was to eat snacks between meals ‘to keep your metabolism raised’. That long held theory was debunked a few years back and now we recommend NOT eating between meals. How science changes!

Have you ever wondered where fat goes or how it gets out of your body when you lose fat? I think most people will be surprised to learn that we breathe it out! I know, that sounds strange, but for a proper explanation, have a read of this.
Fasting has become quite popular over the past few years and I am often asked what I think about the idea. I think it can be beneficial for many people and this article explains the many benefits very well.
Losing weight and living a healthier lifestyle top the charts of New Year’s resolutions each year, but only about 10% of people manage to make lasting changes and achieve the results they hoped for. Why is that?
December and early January can be a tricky time to keep on track with healthy eating. There are often lots of social occasions which, of course, involve eating and drinking! Here’s a few tips to keep in mind.
It’s time to dust the BBQ off, load up with fresh veggies and get cooking. The nice thing about summer eating is that it doesn’t have to involve a lot of preparation or cooking time. Keep it simple, keep it fresh.
If you are confused about what to eat you aren’t alone. It seems like just about every month new research comes out, discrediting previous research about something to do with diet and nutrition.
I’m a completely new person. I am confident, energetic and so happy. I did have my doubts and had ups and downs along the way, but having Lynda to keep me accountable was definitely the factor that drove me to keep going.
Nearly every new client who comes to see me tells me that they need accountability. Yes, most have a reasonable idea of what they should and shouldn’t eat, but if there is no one to report into it can be difficult to keep the momentum going.
I think like most people, I find that getting out of routine sets me up for making decisions around food that aren’t always particularly wise and the thought ‘I’ll sort it out when I get home’ prevails. That’s fine, as long as you do, before the habits become ingrained.
