Travel tips A-Z
P is for Pre-Packaged foods. It is a great idea when travelling and spending time in different places to have some pre-prepared food with you in case you cannot get what you need or things take longer than expected. Some great options are packs of nuts or even pre-packed protein shakes and bars. They are easy to travel with and easy to pop into your pocket.
V is for vaccinations. Always pays to check if travelling to other countries just what is recommended and what you might need. We often don’t realise until it is too late there are things we could have done to protect ourselves. If in doubt, check with your doctor before travelling abroad and see if you are up to date.
Is a great way to increase protein in our diets which helps with repair, recovery, appetite management and a whole host of other benefits. Made from animal protein, it is a great winter option for those wanting something quick, simple and warming. Available in 2 great flavours.

I find this are an effective way to get back into fitness and exercise or if you want a change that will get things happening again. Try performing 4-5 exercises using body weight or resistance such as press ups, lunges, step ups or shoulder presses straight after each other and then perform 5 minutes of cardio exercise such as jogging, stair climbing or even skipping before back into your 4-5 exercises. Keep it short and intense for effective fat burning and conditioning but be sure to focus on great form.
Listener Q & A - What is the quickest way to Burn belly fat?
In my experience one of the quickest ways to target and reduce body fat is to incorporate big body part exercises as these big muscles require the most energy and effort to move as well as requiring core activation. Try lunges, squats, step ups and even press ups to target belly fat and avoid crunches as this is not always the best way to improve the mid-section.
Listener Q & A - How can you get rid of upper back fat?
Based on our BioSignature Modulation testing using body fat callipers to check hormone levels in the body, we find many people with upper back fat can have challenges processing carbohydrates in their diet such as fruit, muffins, bread, pasta, crackers, cereals and so on. Sometimes we just need to clean things out a little for the body to process and digest these foods a little better. We often suggest to clients to reduce these foods for a week or so and increase their consumption of protein and good fats to address this problem with great results. Try swapping toast and coffee for breakfast with eggs and mushrooms or your morning muffin with some nuts and seeds.
