CBD, short for Cannabidiol is a naturally-occurring compound found in hemp and cannabis. CBD isn’t psychoactive, meaning it doesn’t have hallucinogenic properties. CBD is not addictive, and studies show no dependence potential.
Is it legal?
At the time of writing, CBD is legal in the UK and US, along with many other countries but not in Australia. However, with the increasing amount of evidence building, many people see this changing in coming years.
According to recent reports, 3 out of 4 people aren’t getting the 7-9 hours required. In this blog, I explain sleep deprivation and deficiency, why they matter to your fat-loss results, what you can do to improve your sleep, and where you can start…. tonight!
For years, people have been using alcohol as a way to destress and sleep, yet for years our sleep problems have persisted. Maybe it’s time we ask ourselves if alcohol really helps?
Fasting is simply the act of abstaining from food for a given period of time. Perhaps most importantly, fasting is a detoxification and optimisation strategy, not a starvation method.
But, with the abundance of food and snacks available today, fasting doesn’t happen as naturally as at it used to, even though it’s a strategy that has existed for centuries.
How many times have you promised to start tomorrow?
When it comes to initiating change, tomorrow is a fool’s paradise as tomorrow is a black hole of good intentions.
Are training and exercising the same thing? Or should we be looking at them separately in order to achieve our optimum health and wellness?
The fitness industry describes our movement habits as ‘training’, yet health organisations such as the NHS use the term exercise. However, they’re both used to describe the same thing - energy output. When actually they mean different things.
I’m not a fan of this term to be honest. Why? Well, it’s not only subjective to each individual’s personal opinion (vegan, paleo etc), but it’s undefined and usually refers to what they don’t eat; carbs, fats, sugar etc. instead of what they actually do eat.
Sleep, water and caffeine are the perfect fat-loss trio everyone needs in their life.
There’s a reason why sleep is the first pillar in my foundations. Not only is it the most underrated and under-utilised fat-loss and health strategy available, but by simply improving it, you can positively affect your mood, cognitive function, training and food choices.
This is a term I refer to often and I developed this concept to help my clients not only stick to their healthier eating habits, but to help increase their free-time whilst simultaneously decreasing the stress surrounding healthier eating.
I understand that people tend to dislike the term diet, however we all have one. Our diet is our preferred way of eating, whether we attach it to weight-loss or not.
