Metabolism

Obesity is linked to inflammation. Evidence suggests that eating too much added sugar and refined carbohydrates causes inflammation in your body and leads to obesity. When the immune system is impaired, the body is unable to defend itself through acute protective inflammation. Overeating tends to increase the immune response, which in turn causes the body to generate excessive inflammation. The vicious cycle starts with poor diet, chronic inflammation, and health problems such as type 2 diabetes, heart problems, liver disease, cancer, and other chronic diseases. Obesity is associated with chronic inflammation, and there does seem to be a genetic component to excess fat accumulation. Still, thanks to pioneering work in epigenetics and trailblazers such as Dr Bruce Lipton, your lifestyle choices either allow those genes to express and turn on or stay turned off. Therefore, this puts you back into the driver's seat of your health, and so you can combat inflammation, obesity and prevent disease.  I've previously shared my struggles with eating

I created this recipe for Gluten-Free Muffins ten years ago when I was home after having three babies in 5 years and wanted a daily healthy treat but didn’t want to eat junk, especially breastfeeding. I’ve been baking them ever since, and now my kids love them so much they bake them too. Gluten-Free Muffins Recipe  Begin making the Gluten-Free Muffins by mixing the dry ingredients: 250g almond flour 1 teaspoon of baking soda 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg. In a separate bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients: 2 organic eggs 1/4 cup of unsweetened plant milk  1/4 cup of Birch xylitol or stevia or coconut sugar (if I make the banana versions, I often don’t add this - so see what you prefer). 1 grated apple with skin. Mix the wet ingredients with the dry ingredients. Add your flavour to the Gluten-Free Muffins - blueberries or any berries, with banana & walnuts - or

I grew up a chubby kid with skinny siblings, I was teased a lot due to my excess belly fat, and since I was only a teenager and didn’t know what I know about metabolism now, I ended up with eating disorders. Starvation was the only way I knew how to reduce my weight, so the cycle of poor eating habits began. The tricky thing was that over one summer, I worked hard to change my appearance, and lost three dress sizes as I: exercised like mad didn’t eat much got my braces off I entered into my third year of high school and became addicted to the praise due to my root issue: approval addiction. My walk with obesity, eating disorders, insecurity and shame are why I am so passionate about this topic. These issues robbed me of half my childhood, feeling so embarrassed to secretly take food to my bedroom when my blood sugar regulation was low,

Over the last five years in our Rejuv Wellness Clinics, we've seen a spike in men's health conditions mainly driven by inflammation, stress and adrenal fatigue. When we assess your health, we always look at you holistically from all of our 7 Pillars of Wellness. The seven pillars include sleep, movement, body balance, nutrition, supplementation, mindfulness and environment.  In an ideal world, we'd all eat organic low-processed, high fibre and high nutrient-dense foods providing us with optimum vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and nutrients we need to thrive.

Caffeine exercise and obesity. Could adding in a few cups of green tea help with your fat burning & sports performance?
