The Lifestyle Project 30 Day Online Fast Track – January 2020

30 days to change your ways!

If you are looking for real change in your health, eating habits, or nutrition knowledge for daily diet, the 30 Day Fast Track eating plan could be for you. I’ve created it because I’ve seen just how many there are who find themselves confused by conflicting information, stuck in their progress towards whatever health/weight/daily eating/habit goal they have, or just feel that they are fed up with feeling like they do. Is there a better way from a reliable source? Yes! The 30 Day Fast Track is designed to be just that!

What is the 30 Day Fast Track? It’s a month of real, focused change, inside and out, with me daily, with advice, recipes, video demos, live Q + As, guest experts and motivation to guide, support and empower. It includes mindset and exercise to bring truly holistic guidance and progress to shifting into a healthier, happier, more balanced state of wellbeing. It all happens on Facebook in a secret community for your intake.

Make a change for life, not for just January!

With the right food and everyday habits, your body can function efficiently giving you stable energy levels, vibrant health, and a glowing sense of well-being, plus of course, increased resilience to disease and stress, and reaching your happy weight, the weight that’s right for your body.

Re-energise your body, revitalise your health, reboot your lifestyle with an everyday masterplan that revolves around delicious real food! Add mindset, exercise and self care and you have a true holistic transformation. No quick fixes, no short term gains, just long term, healthier habits.

I’ve ploughed all 20 years of functional food knowledge, experience and passion into creating online solutions that can deliver a calmer, slimmer, happier, healthier you.

You get my most popular and effective eating plan. Here’s what Zoa had to say about it:

“I started The Masterplan last week and I am absolutely loving it!! I’ve already lost 2lb and an inch from my waist which is incredible but most of all I’m really enjoying experiencing loads of new food. I never really bothered too much before because life gets in the way so I would eat the same things all the time – things which I actually thought were quite healthy but wow, if this is healthy, bring it on !! I have never tried so many different foods before and I thought I had a fairly good diet! I’m also finding ways to slip gut friendly food into the family’s meals too, it’s great, I am loving the creativity of it all! It’s time for me now. Thanks Jane!”

The Fast Track is a huge holistic collection of what it takes to get you on the right track with the right tools in your toolkit – food, nutrition and diet; exercise; mindset; self care; recipes; video demos; resources; shopping and food lists; and me by your side!

Eat to Beat Stress, Depression and Anxiety – Diet for Mental Health Workshop

Mental health is as important as physical health, or at least, it should be! The brain is an incredible organ, controlling everything we do, whether we’re conscious of its workings or not. The causes of mental health disruption can be intricate, and can be causal, situational or a combination of both, but diet is a key part of getting, and staying, balanced.

Feeding your body and brain the right foods and nutrients to support mental health (and the function of the brain, adrenals and gut) is now recognised as one of the single most important steps everyone should take as a foundation for controlling anxiety, balancing mood, and protecting yourself from stress.

Knowing what other factors affect brain function, what to do (or not do!) and how to go about taking control for ourselves is essential too.

This session looks at the what, why and how you can ensure the best environment for optimum functioning, including wider factors and interventions. This is an interactive session, with the opportunity to ask questions, so you leave ready to eat to beat stress, depression and anxiety, and protect not just your own mental health, but your loved ones’ too!

What do previous attendees have to say about this session?

The Walnut has landed!

After a few days of strange, unusual, and if I’m honest, chaotic events (culminating in nearly running over a suicidal seagull focused only on the lollipop clamped jealously in its beak, proving how dangerous junk food is!), I was thrilled to receive the inaugural copy of Walnut magazine – I was approached to write foodie health articles for it a while ago and completely forgot about it, so this is my first view of the finished mag and my mental health nutrition article.

If you’re in the Bristol area, you’ll be lucky enough to be able to grab a copy – beautifully designed and produced, and packed with wonderful information, advice and recipes. If you don’t live in the distribution area, you can purchase a copy of this hefty quarterly gem here: Walnut Magazine

Welcome to Walnut! Great stuff, Dermot!

Boost mood with food for better mental health…..

Great news! I was first switched on to the impact of food on mental health at an international conference nearly 15 years ago, and haven’t stopped studying it since. Evidence of those early pioneering theories has gradually grown as research was commissioned. The more research emerges, the more is commissioned, and so we begin to really join up the dots.

It’s really hard work making progress without a body of major scientific evidence, but it does look like a corner has been turned and the food-mental health link is now accepted enough for a real food for the brain message to be listened to. With mental health statistics and the numbers suffering reaching crisis point, it’s not a moment too soon.

See the full article here.

‘Director of Deakin’s Food and Mood Centre Professor Felice Jacka said the results of her team’s new study offered a possible new treatment approach to depression, one of the world’s most prevalent and costly medical disorders.

“We’ve known for some time that there is a clear association between the quality of people’s diets and their risk for depression,” Professor Jacka said.

“This is the case across countries, cultures and age groups, with healthy diets associated with reduced risk, and unhealthy diets associated with increased risk for depression.

“However, this is the first randomised controlled trial to directly test whether improving diet quality can actually treat clinical depression.” ‘

Eating for Awesome Energy Levels – Take the Challenge!

What an amazing lunar eclipse on Sunday night! It happened at 3 am here in the UK, so I set my alarm, and spent a rather eerie time watching the moon turn red, sitting in my back garden, in total silence. I must admit to being tired on Monday though – extra attention was paid to what I ate to boost my energy levels and enable me to achieve everything I needed to, even after a disturbed night.

Very appropriate then that this week I’m launching a free 5 day challenge to share my secrets, with busy people the prime focus.

How’s your energy? Morning brain fog? Afternoon sleepy slumps? Evening super-snacking? Desperately waiting for wine o’clock?

The energy we need to accomplish everything on our daily to do lists can vary as wildly as our energy levels themselves. The important thing is that we have the necessary resilience to deal with everything that life throws our way, including the things we want to do, not just have to do.

Too exhausted by work and responsibilities to play football with the kids, go on that night out, or have friends over for dinner? Plagued by headaches? Feeling irritable or stressed? Then something is missing, and the first place to look is your diet.

What and how you eat has a huge impact on your energy levels, mood, and all round health. Will that affect your productivity? Absolutely! Does it have to be hard to turn around? Not at all.

The first step is to get a bird’s eye view of what’s going on (and I’m the bird to do it!)

Sign up, receive a booklet to record your food and feelings, and at the end of the 5 days, share your results in either the dedicated challenge Facebook group or by email. Simple.

The best news? You get my professional input on your results and reflections, absolutely free.

Hop on over and sign up for my free 5 day Eating for Energy Challenge here: I’m ready for more energy!

With nearly 20 years experience as a holistic functional nutritionist, and a demanding family life, I can beam in on core issues like a hawk, while understanding the demands of being focused at work, with a life outside business.

Implement my recommendations for small, achievable changes, and you’ll be able to see results quickly and easily.

Do you want to feel better, be better, and do more? Let’s rocket your health, energy and productivity skyward together…..

Life is hectic, but we don’t need to feel frazzled. I’m looking forward to helping you work out how to go from OK to awesome!

 

Boost your brain with a smoothie!

Whizz up this Brain Boost Smoothie for breakfast if you have a busy, mentally demanding day ahead – the protein, healthy fats, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins will keep blood sugar release steady, brain function sharp, and concentration focused.

Just one of the smoothies in the smoothie and juice mini-book I’m currently writing – taking the fruit acid, calorie and fibre considerations into account, there are ways to utilise the real supercharging value of smoothies and juices as part of broad and balanced daily eating. 

This is also what I’ll be teaching in the morning masterclass at the Nourish Retreats weekend with The Barefoot Doctor in April (you can check it out and book here – http://www.nourishretreats.co.uk/…/nourish-renewal-at-shar…/

So, go ahead and boost those brains! Enjoy!
