For many, this can be a confusing concept. How can you heal your gut?

For many people, alcohol is one of life’s pleasures. Its consumption is associated with celebration, relaxation, and socialising. Some people believe that alcohol in moderation can be healthy, or even reduce your risk of heart disease or heart attack.

Training without considering nutrition could severely undermine your progress, and can even negatively impact your health.

Never before has it been easier to lead a plant-based lifestyle, or just to increase the amount of plant foods in our diet. There are so many options at the supermarket, restaurants, take away joints and supplements that all help ensure a plant-based diet is adequately nutritious.

If you go into your supermarket and look at the shelves, for almost every unhealthy product you can find, you’ll also find a diet or “light” version. The diet version will have less fat or sugar and be promoted as healthy. In an effort to lose weight, more and more people are switching to diet foods. Ironically, it could be diet foods that are actually responsible for making you fat and unhealthy!
