How Important Is Exercise For Weight Loss?

By | 2019-02-04T13:13:02-04:00 February 4th, 2019|

Let me start off by saying that I believe strongly in exercise (not surprisingly!). As a child, my parents kept my sister and I active in our spare time. I started judo at 8 and then moved on to karate (my lifelong love) when I was 9. I was a competitive karate athlete for 14 years, [...]

How To Deal With Food Temptations

By | 2019-01-25T12:07:20-04:00 January 25th, 2019|

Many people have weight loss as their goal at this time of year. Over a third of North Americans will vow to "eat healthier" and/or "get more exercise". While those are certainly good measures to take, most people fail within a few months (some even sooner!). The failure of these resolutions isn't a big surprise. This [...]

Your Fitness And Nutrition Strategy for 2019

By | 2019-01-25T12:08:05-04:00 January 9th, 2019|

Happy new year! I hope that 2019 has started off on a bright note for you. And if it didn't...there's still plenty of time to have an awesome year. My holiday break was surprisingly busy and I didn't get as much downtime as I expected. I had a couple of weeks of quality time with family [...]

A Quick Message About The Holiday Season

By | 2018-12-27T10:53:39-04:00 December 27th, 2018|

Hopefully you're enjoying a bit of rest in the next week or so. While many of us are still working (sometimes with the added constraint of having our kids around!), with any luck you're having a bit of down time too. I'm reducing my gym workouts a bit to spend time with my family. We're keeping active though. [...]

Overcoming The “All-Or-Nothing” Mentality

By | 2018-12-19T15:40:35-04:00 December 19th, 2018|

We're in the midst of a tough time on the nutrition and exercise front. The parties are everywhere. The chocolate, the gingerbread, the candy canes...perhaps even the wine, cocktails or beer. 'Tis the season, right? Hopefully you haven't decided to throw in the towel and get back on track in 2019. That's something I refer to [...]

How To Cope With Holiday Challenges

By | 2018-12-10T14:09:35-04:00 December 11th, 2018|

Put Your Feet Up...You Got This! We're right in the thick of the holiday season. The weather here in Toronto is definitely feeling "wintery", even though it's not officially winter yet. I've already been ice skating with my family - four times! A nice outdoor workout, by the way. The other thing that happens at this time [...]

Do You Really Need Superfoods?

By | 2018-11-28T15:53:36-04:00 November 28th, 2018|

I pride myself on providing practical, evidence-based solution for weight loss. Losing weight isn't as complicated as people think, but it's NOT easy. In the quest for ideal health and leanness, many people turn to superfoods for an edge. What are SUPERFOODS? Superfoods is a marketing term, rather than a scientific one. There's no scientific criteria to [...]

Are You Telling Yourself The Wrong Story?

By | 2018-11-14T15:00:01-04:00 November 14th, 2018|

I recently joined up for Netflix (late to the party, I know!). One of the TV shows I was curious about was "This Is Us". I had seen some powerful commercials advertising the show and after passing the posters on the Toronto subway for weeks, I couldn't resist anymore. So I binge-watched two seasons of the show in about three [...]
