New year, new pantry. Combating obesity is simple.

With Christmas and New Year fast approaching, a lot of people will over indulge on food and alcohol and come January, will be looking to join the gym or jump on the latest diet fad to lose weight, eat better and be fitter. It seems like a mammoth task, when in fact, with the right head space and education, you can make informed decisions on the path to being healthy and it doesn’t have to be hard work. We hear about new diets every day and they are all backed by different, confusing research. We…

Sacrifice is the biggest thing you need consider when getting into business

There is no one on the planet who would not say that your health is your greatest asset. Mind you when you are in your teens and early 20s you think that by the time you are ready to die there is probably going to be a cure for death. In the meantime, you drink too much, experiment with all sorts of things and do risky and some would say stupid things (I may be just talking about myself here), and health really is a low priority – as long as we look good in…

You want me to put the coffee where?!

It always amazes me that people spend a fortune on their car every year to make sure it’s in peak condition but they only spend a fraction of that cost on their own engine; their body. You can always get a new car if it’s a dud but you can’t get a new body. I love a good detox challenge as much as the next person, so I have been going to health retreats for years. Like most people, I’m really dedicated at the start and get inspired to make all the healthy changes. I…

People are afraid of fruit!

Finally some sense with the new and updated Nutrition Australia food pyramid this week; maybe this will help put fruit and veg back on the menu where it needs to be for people drawn in by popular diet fads. Increasingly extreme high-protein diets and the anti-sugar movement have been misleading people into believing that fruit and vegetables are unhealthy so it’s fantastic to see them back where they belong on the pyramid – at the foundation of a healthy diet. The concern is that when people go down the fad diet path, they may be…

View of the Good Life from Riley Allis. Age 16.

From day one the goal of us, our human race is ultimately to have a good life. Some may argue that our goal was survival or growth or to reach the moon, but what’s the point, so what, who gives a shit. The fact remains that we survived because we wanted to, if a good life is not the goal then what’s the point, you think electricity would be invented if Mr Edison hated his life, do you think Neil would have taken those great big steps on our moon if he didn’t see how…

The Growth of the WELLNESS category…

This issue looks at the Health and Fitness category of Franchising and the greater business world, which is great timing, as never before have companies in this space grown at such a rapid rate. Some reasons as to why include the massive growth in obesity related disease, and the focus the Government are putting on trying to manage this epidemic and there is no surprise that the growth of fast food is in line with the increase of obesity. I cannot remember the last time I spoke to someone who did not want to lose…
