Why Dieting Doesn’t Work

December 30, 2019

There’s a big difference between a “diet” and “dieting,” but both are often used interchangeably, leading to a lot of confusion.  A diet is somebody’s habitual eating pattern.

4 Overlooked Ways To Look After Your Health and Fitness

December 19, 2019

You’ll have heard of the common ways that you should look after your health: keep the fast-food meals to a minimum, don’t leave those running shoes in the cupboard for too long, and don’t spend too many evenings out on the town with friends.

5 Ways a Bidet Can Help the Environment

November 18, 2019

By Patrick Adams   Bidets are wonderful, useful things that should be used more often. People have this strange and erroneous notion, thinking that bidets are both unsanitary and luxurious at the same time. They are neither. A bidet is a much cleaner and more eco-friendly replacement when compared to regular toilets. They are very sanitary when used correctly, and are pretty easy to use in general. Furthermore, a bidet is relatively cheap, you can find it for excellent prices,…

Those that go out, do things, and reach a good level of success all have that ability to back themselves. It’s a feeling of knowing they’ll be okay, and not really caring about what the person next…

October has come quick, kids in school, Uni started and works need to be planned, and the daily working and commute routine is upon us.

Summers Over But Your Health Kick Shouldn’t Be!

August 19, 2019

And we know that you will have had this conversation with so many different people, because it’s a nationwide thought that the summer we had is well and truly gone…if we had one at all. We’re not…

Has The Science Of Weight Loss Learned Anything In The Last Ten Years?

August 7, 2019

About two out of three adults are either overweight or obese. It’s not a particularly flattering statistic, but if you adopt the definition of “overfat” which takes into consideration the ratio of muscle to fat, more than 90 of us probably weigh more than we should. Practically everyone walking around today is a shadow of their actual physical potential. Lifted from our natural habitats, the majority of people have no reason to move, build muscle and learn fat. Why bother…
