Wasting your money on Supplements?

May 13, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Nutrition  //  No Comments

If you are (happily) taking more interest in your wellbeing, and may have read articles which encourage you to buy nutritional supplements – STOP!

Please be aware that that is what they are – supplements. Firstly, find the correct support (ie qualified professional) to work out if your foodstuff is actually giving you the correct nutrition for your system, not a whole bunch of other people’s. Secondly, then, you can be safely recommended any necessary supplements.

Thirdly, a simple blood test, if you are concerned, taken by your local surgery will inform if you are low in vital nutrients, eg Vit D – of which there has lately been much in the press.

Don’t be unnecessarily alarmed or conned – take these simple steps to save, time, money and worry.

Feeling the cold?

Jan 21, 2013   //   by Anne Russell   //   Nutrition, Tip of the Week  //  No Comments

Yes, we do want to eat more during cold weather – keeping warm takes more energy. To make good choices that keep you feeling full for longer, this is a time to choose the foods containing fats – but please choose the good fats! ie, good meats, nuts, avocado, peanut and nut butters (without added sugar of course!), semi-skimmed milks rather than skimmed.  Pulses and legumes are also very satisfying and nourishing. Call for any more assistance.

that dieting feeling coming on?

Here at Coaching NorthWest, we understand the thoughts of “I need to lose weight” come more fully at this time of the year to many.

It often takes a unique and dedicated understanding also of the person involved to bring that about as enjoyably and comfortably as possible. It also needs to be a healthy food intake for you, not just a “slimming” diet.

It won’t feel like that with the Nutritional Programme designed especially for you at Coaching NorthWest.

Special encouragement discounts await you. We all need a little enticing to do what we need to do! Make 2012 the year you can say: “I did it!” Contact Anne Russell now and lets get started.

Weighty Issues

Oct 28, 2011   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Nutrition  //  No Comments

This isn’t the time of year to mess about, action is required!

A great deal of comment is now in the media with the government and various bodies adding to the conversation about personal weight problems.

It is, if you don’t mind the pun, a growing problem. A lot is known about the process of weight gain, and a lot more is likely to be learnt. However, it must be remembered that not everyone responds in the same way. Here at Coaching NorthWest, you are treated as an individual.

There is no judgement, just very healthly adjustments that teach you how to gain and maintain a sensible weight for you. It’s much more than simply losing weight. It’s a whole new way of approaching food. And, importantly you will enjoy!

Plenty of testimonials to encourage you on your way of successful goals achieved available.

Brain Food!

May 9, 2011   //   by Anne Russell   //   Blog, Nutrition  //  No Comments

Yes! certainly, do not be surprised – our food is there to enjoy, of course, but the nutrients in the food are vital.
So, we have nutrients that feed the brain, just as we have the right oils for the car engine. Miss out supplying those to your car, and you won’t get very far very efficiently.

The brain needs lots of various important nutrients. But one to focus on today is the omega 3 food group, which I am sure many of you will now have heard of?

The brain is made up of 60% omega-3 fat, so obviously you need to get a good dose of this essential nutruient. How do you do that?
EAT – oily fishes, nuts, seeds, nut butters.

If you want more news on how what you are eating makes a difference to you, just drop me a line via the contact box and I will get back to you.

You know it’s good for you – so go on – eat the right foods, think the right thoughts!
