Going Vegan

Going Vegan

So one inadvertent tangent on Monday’s video about seeing people going Vegan lead me into looking at it in greater detail. Why would you consider becoming a Vegan? What are the health benefits in going Vegan? What are the affects of staying a meat eater on your body as well as the environment? Are micro pigs good pets? And, in the worst case of Netflix and Chill ever, I sat accompanied by a notebook and pen to watch Netflix’s ‘What The Health’ to help give me more perspective.

Check out the video below and let me know your thoughts, particularly if you have experiences with becoming a vegan and how it as worked for you! 

And because I hate click bait: I’m not going vegan, that’s not to say I should or shouldn’t. Ok, that’s kinda click bait.

Counting Calories, IIFYM and the one thing people don't talk about on eating

There seems to be a large focus online recently on calorie counting, IIFYM and the idea that you can eat whatever you want and still lose weight. Is this true and why I think you still should not do it even if it might be! 

Also, my absolute hatred for memes like '524 burpees to burn off large fries'. Not only are you making my beloved burpees not seem like a great fat burning exercise but there is so much wrong with that statement that I could have wrote multiple blogs on it! 

Eating On The Road

Eating On The Road

It's can be very hard, if not impossible, to maintain a healthy on the road and 24/7. I look into a lot of the fast food chain in search of slightly healthier options as well as which one has seemingly the best coffee and my own take on that Joe Wick vs KFC Meal on which is better for you while using a rule of thumb that I try to implement for all my blogs, do my own research on the 'facts'.

Part 2 of my fitness weekend continuing with after I left the BodyPower Expo. There's a lot of take aways in this blog including:

- Saunas for Endurance Training
- Using a simple technique involving a foam roller to be able to bend over a touch your toes in minutes
- Setting myself up for one of my biggest ever fitness challenges
- A 10 minute workout that is literally a pain in the ass!
