reflecting on 2016

2016 has drawn to a close. I’m not big on the old ‘New Year’s Resolutions’ tradition, however, I do believe that this is the perfect opportunity to slow down and take the time out to reflect on the past 12 months of our lives, without the craziness of our busy daily routine.

You should consume carbs post-workout or in the evening.

To set you up for a successful day, start it right – with fats & protein.
It improves brain function, alertness, energy levels and performance.  It also helps you get lean, control hunger and minimise cravings, as it allows for a slow and steady rise in blood sugars and keeps them stable for a long period of time. Continue Reading
