BCNH- 10 YEARS!

On Saturday I had the privilege to provide the catering for my almamater which is BCNH- British College of Nutrition and Health It was their 10th anniversary and without the dedication, passion and determination the success of the college (and students) would not have been possible. Blood, sweat and tears goes into contributing to the best nutritional therapists with no stone left unturned when it comes to the level and quality of education and fabulous tutors.

Below is the menu for the day and from what I heard and from the empty plates we cleared after a long day, the results were good and everyone was happy, which of course made me very happy indeed.

  • Vietnamese Summer rolls with hoisin dip
  • Rye bread with goats cheese, figs and honey
  • Cherry tomato, mozzarella and basil skewers
  • Mediterranean vegetable stax with olives
  • Buckwheat noodle salad
  • Moroccan cous-cous with sour cherries and nuts
  • Quinoa with roast vegetables and sheep’s milk feta
  • vegetable platter with tzatsiki, hummus, pinto bean dip and cumin spiked guacamole
  • Candied pumpkin seeds and edemame beans.

What a great day and congratulations to Breda and her team for all the hard work over the years and all the best for the next decade!

Metabolic Balance®

In my years of practice as a nutritional therapist I have helped many people loose weight successfully through diet and lifestyle changes. I have seen diets come and go as I am sure you have, and as I am sure you have tried many. I don’t like using the word ‘diet’ it sounds like it has a beginning and a definitive end, meaning that as soon as you are ‘off your diet’ you can go back to your old wicked wicked ways.

If there was a magic bullet or magic pill it would make someone very rich indeed, for we are officially in the middle of a obesity epidemic. Two in four Americans have Type II diabetes, children are getting fatter and we are getting more ill everyday due to poor dietary and lifestyle choices.

The bad news is that there is not a magic pill or bullet, but the good news is that there is help out there and you CAN change things around. You CAN alter your metabolism in order too lower your cholesterol, loose weight, lower your blood pressure, prevent Type II diabetes and most of all look and feel AMAZING!

The kind of diets that the majority of people follow contain way too much carbohydrates and sugar, food is depleted of essential nutrients, protein and phytonutrients. These foods stimulate the production of insulin which is our main metabolic hormone and too much of this hormone can have negative consequences to our health, body and weight.

So, does food affect our hormones? I will have to say YES, because the kind of food you eat can affect insulin production and have an effect on 30 other hormones in your body.

Through adjusting your metabolism with the aid of your own personal metabolic-balance® program you can regulate your weight healthily and naturally as well as strengthen your metabolism gently and permanently.

Is this the magic bullet we have been waiting for? The proof is already in the skinny puddings who have embarked on the program and are experiencing the benefits everyday.
