What I am currently working on
So I have been missing from the podcast for a few weeks now as I had to concentrate on a few projects that needed my undivided (almost) attention. In this episode of the podcast I reveal what they are... Keep an eye on my social media channels for links to the goodies I mention in the podcast.

BLOGCAST: Don't let SAD drown your spirit. 5 tips for excellent mental health this Winter
For many people, including myself, the day that the clocks go back one hour is a sad day. I do struggle to stay cheerful when the sky is constantly overcast and I definitely do better when there is more daylight. However, all is not lost: here are my 5 tips to stay sane in the run up to the Winter solstice. You can find the research paper I mention in the BlogCast here: http://citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/download?doi=10.1.1.456.8452&rep=rep1&type=pdf - do check the references for more in depth research on adults.

What helps me overcome cravings
Cravings are the number one reason that most people fail at their weight loss efforts. Whatever program you choose will involve restricting calories in one way or another. This is necessary to persuade your body to use its fat reserves as fuel. However, unless you work WITH your metabolism and reduce calories intake in a way that keeps it stable you will cause yourself to get cravings for starches, either sweet (cakes, biscuits) or savoury (chips, crisps, pizza, pasta). This is what helps you keep them under control. I wrote a blog post about this too and it's at this link: http://rcl.ink/2SC

Why You Should Never Go On A Crash Diet
The human metabolism is an exquisitely sophisticated machine specialised in maintaining the status quo. It loves stability and the moment you upset it by making sudden and significant changes your metabolism fights back with a vengeance. This is why you should never go on a crash diet. Unless you know what to expect and how to deal with it. Listen to this episode of the Healthy & Wealthy over 40 podcast to find out what happened to me when I used a crash diet recently to counter the effects of a gluten baby. :-)

Three books that I highly recommend
Sometimes I am asked which recipe books I recommend instead of learning how to navigate one's metabolism. My answer is always "none until you have learned that" BUT there are three books that I know will be invaluable to help you succeed at your weight loss and fitness project. You can find them here: Book number 1: https://amzn.to/2DlD5Ms Book number 2: https://amzn.to/2QPsXhS Book number 3: http://rcl.ink/XGq Check them out and enjoy! :-)

The exciting thing about the fitness industry
What keeps my love for what I do alive is the fact that I find the fitness industry fascinating. But not necessarily for the reasons that might have come to mind straight away...

A personal secret: why I call myself a metabolic detective
I like to jokingly refer to my work as that of a metabolic detective because that is essentially what I do when I work with clients on their weight loss and fitness journeys. In this episode I explain what that looks like by revealing a personal secret...

Lessons learnt
Introspection: something I do when I am forced to stay still. Reflecting on what's going on in my life tends to bring forward a-ha moments. Last week, as I was dealing with vertigo, I took stock of a few lessons that I learnt recently. I mention 3 but it's more like 300... The most important lesson I learned today: don't vlog holding the phone the day after an exciting grappling sessions. It weighs a tonne and makes everyone seasick. Sorry about that. What have you learned recently? #success #health #strategy #fitness #mindset #sleep #downtime #reflection #introspection

If I had to start again
Have you ever wondered if you had to start something again, with the wisdom of now, how would you go about it? I recently had some time off but my brain didn't get the memo and as I was thinking about it I realised that for all the successes, mistakes, failures and times when I fell flat on my face and wanted to give it all up I would still do what I did more or less the same with the exception of one thing...

How I do what I do
A lot of the time people don't know what to expect when they work with a fitness coach. Many think that all we do is dish out the exercises and recipes but in reality there is so much more to it. This is how I do it.

The healthy & wealthy after 40 podcast
Every so often it's good to try something new. In August 2018 I took part in a vlogging challenge to help me get over the phobia of being on video. As of September 2018, while my vlogging adventures continue on different platforms, I am also starting this podcast to experiment with a different platform from the usual blogging and social media. Who knows? It might be fun and it might be good. Over the next 6 weeks or so I will be sharing a bit about my work as a "Metabolic Detective" as well as a few tips on how you can stay healthy & wealthy after you reach the milestone of your 40th birthday. I hope you'll join me and if you have any questions at any point don't be shy and send me a message.
