Eat organic, grass fed or locally sourced meat – know where your meat comes from.
Eat wild sustainably caught fish. Fish that roams free in the ocean is less likely to be contaminated with antibiotics and pollutants.
Eat good fats, we need these for a healthy body, mind, metabolism and hormones.
Don’t eat packaged, processed or convenience foods. Putting together quick easy whole food recipes does not have to be complicated or time consuming.

Don’t compare yourself to others, it’s not about how far you can run or how much you weigh it’s about your health and your goals.
Health starts now! Not tomorrow. How you live today effects tomorrow. Don’t wait until the first signs of ill health, it may be too late.
Drink plenty of water, aim for 1-2 litres per day.
Limit caffeine, no more than two a day. Cut it out completely if you are stressed and can’t sleep at night.

Be active and exercise but don’t overdo it.
Deal with stress! It is detrimental to your health. Exercise, take time out, try yoga, read, whatever relaxes you.
