Whey to go?
So you see all the gym buffs strutting around with their shakers filled with these colourful liquids. And your thinking hmmm I need to get me one of those! Or do I? Or, will I put on weight or turn into Arnie over night?
Here is the lowdown!
Protein shakes are.... exactly what they say on the tin, they are a protein supplement. Protein is one of the three macro-nutrients our body needs daily to maintain growth and repair.
Now there is nothing in these bad boys that you cant get from food. But many people struggle on a modern carb processed diet to get their daily requirements. This is where a shake comes in handy. Of course I would rather you tuck into a nice grilled bit of chicken but these are perfect for on the go, or just after you train.
Your average whey protein can add around 20g protein to your daily intake.
So why is it so popular with us gym folk? because as mentioned before this magical macro nutrient supports growth and repair, which will aid in your goals to build or tone the body you desire.
Many health food stores over price protein so it is best to order online.
Dolphin Fitness offer an amazing range of these at decent prices.
Please note these whey proteins are not allergen friendly, so if you suffer any allergies i.e dairy, wheat, gluten or soy, you need to order elsewhere.
The link below is to the best completely allergen free vegan protein I have found. You need to register first then go to the nutrition tab. I recommend chocolate :)

Another amazing bonus is you can cook some amazing sweet treats with whey protein. Which will statisfy any sweet tooth, whilst eating clean.
Hey beautiful people,
So its FREEZING in London and as much as i would love to hibernate until June and eat my own body weight carbolious foods! I will not! Neither should you!
So winter is crap in my eyes you can hide tummies under jumpers, your feeling cold, tired and motivation is at its lowest due to said factors, a binge eaters dream! So lets somehow try and turn winter into a positive and try and follow my winter survival guide
Over the past few months I have been trying to find out an eating plan (not diet) that will work best for my clients, mixing and matching, trying it out on myself without keeling over and I now have it! I for one will hold my hands up and say I did not design this plan myself I have pieced it together through plenty of online research and reading books, adapted and simplified a few ridiculously worded recipes and have been left with this.
Its a way of living and not a diet, it takes all the toxins out of you body that cause you to cling on to fat.
This diet will not be a fad that will end up with you gaining all the weight back on, after the first fourteen days we re introduce certain foods, in a healthy way.
The change is not going to be easy, not because it is not sustainable or going to damage you in anyway its because when you give up the toxins I am asking you to give up, your body ain’t gonna be so happy about it. But in the long run, it will thank you for it. For those of you who have already been undertaking healthy eating regimes with me and took part in your nutritional analysis will find the transition period a lot easier (I have been building you up for battle :) )
Lets Start -
Toxins - What are they? Where are they? And how do we get rid of them?
Your body stores toxins in your fat cells, if you have tried a diet before you will know after a few days your body will lose fat but you will start to feel sleepy and unwell, this is the toxins coming away from your fat cells and as they have nowhere else to go they go back into your system, this then causes your body to decide it does not like feeling this way, so it holds on to fat and stores all the toxins (as its safer for your toxins to be stored in fat than living it large around your body)
So unfortunately if your toxic, its always going to be hard to lose weight.
You will slowly drop off weight if you exercise, but as I always say diet is NO 1!
Eat clean, keep training results will triple.
A lot of overweight people are actually malnourished, a toxic body does not digest or retain nutrients properly . And a high calorie diet may not contain the correct vitamins or minerals. This is why overweight people are hungry - their bodies are crying out for nutrients.
So in a nutshell we need to clean these bad boys out, its not going to be easy.. as most of you know me or have read my profile. I am no slim Jim, naturally fit or sporty person. I have had to work at it hard and still do day by day! And as your PT come to me anytime with any problems or pressures, I know sometimes you might think oh its alright for you... you work in the gym... YES I work in a GYM with PERSONAL TRAINER emblazoned on my back all day, Jesus Christ if I let loose and put on a pound people would be falling off their treadmills in disgust!! Trust me I KNOW
