Scrambled eggs are simple to make and provide an excellent foundation for a meal.

The beauty of eggs is that they don't need to be refrigerated, last for ages, and are perfect standby protein base for a meal.

The cardinal rule for scrambled eggs: NEVER make them in a microwave, it's sacrilege!

A great salad dressing can make eating salads a delicious experience.


This dressing is simple and you can change the ingredients to suit your taste.

A ketogenic ("keto")  diet is basically a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s the new buzzword in fat-loss but the concept has been around for ages, and it works!  You can probably think of different names for low carb (sugar) and high fat and protein diets that have been in and out of fashion

When you eat something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin.

  • Glucose is the easiest fuel for ene...

Take Body Measurements The Old-Fashioned Way!

Use a tape measure to track the inches you lose in your weight-loss programme by measuring key areas. Weighing scales don't tell the full story!

We talk a lot about the weighing scales not being the holy grail of weight-loss/fat-loss.

There are a few good reasons for that.

The scales tell us how much we weigh, and not what condition we’re in. They say nothing about the width of our shoulders, how muscular we are or how much...
