Once we understand that our body is made up of billions of tiny individual cells and that these cells collectively are responsible for our health, it becomes very clear that an unhealthy body will have a difficult time losing fat, gaining muscle, driving up energy levels, thinking with greater clarity, possessing better skin and hair, having fewer colds and ills and generally performing positively.

Simple, yet highly effective principles form the bed-rock of the body fx “anti-diet” nutrition programme, designed to incinerate fat via the optimisation of health. A physiological overhaul to balance hormones and cellular function alongside a ‘metabolic tune-up’ will yield a body to be proud of.

body fx is a 16-week health and fat loss programme which is grounded in easy to grasp scientific principles. The science is blended with hands-on nutritional and lifestyle coaching methods allowing participants to implement the fat-loss strategies into their busy day-to-day routines.

Nutritional science and behavioural psychology is constantly evolving; body fx combines the latest proven strategies to lead and engage participants through a series of brief weekly seminars so that they are able to fully ‘jump on board’ with what is being asked of them by the body fx Coach. Understanding leads to empowerment which leads to adherence and results!

Accountability is a huge part of body fx . At regular intervals indices of health are assessed as these underpin how the participant’s physiological systems are reacting to the nutritional interventions. Furthermore, the all-important anthropometric measurements are taken bi-weekly to ensure fat loss results are moving in the right direction. In addition, weekly goal setting strategies are laid out which are progressive and align with the topics of discussion presented in the seminars- all of these results are recorded, collected and analysed with weekly feedback going straight out to the groups.

    The ‘metabolic rate’ is often cited as an important factor when it comes to energy expenditure; furthermore High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is reported to increase metabolic rate above that of other forms of training, such as steady state or longer, slower cardiovascular training.

    The Limbic System

    Posted On

    20 January 2014

    The limbic system, also called the paleomammalian brain, is a complex collection of brain structures that lie on both sides of the thalamus, directly under the cerebrum. It is thought by some neuroscientists that it was added to the forebrain in the course of evolution. The main limbic structures include the hippocampus (memory centre), the amygdala (anger, anxiety and stress centre) and the limbic cortex that interconnects with the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for reasoning and judgment. The limbic system supports functions such as emotion, behaviour and motivation and is devoted to supporting our survival structures that protect and regulate human emotions. Research suggests that it appears to be primarily responsible for emotional life, and it has a great deal to do with the formation of memories. This information suggests that emotional wellbeing and happiness is linked to the wellbeing of the limbic system. Therefore it is possible that a deterioration of the limbic system could lead to more negative, out of control emotions such as rage and depression, leading to violence and a general neurological decline.

    In this short article I am going to look at one of the key factors that has been attributed to the rise in levels of obesity… Obesogenic environments. If we first of all look at what an obesogenic environment is, “the phrase Obesogenic environment refers to an environment that promotes gaining weight and one that is not conducive to weight loss within the home or workplace” (Swinburn, et al., 1999).

    Vegan diets are typically followed for one of three reasons, digestive issues, health beliefs or moral values. Some people simply don’t tolerate animal products well, either because of allergies or sensitivities, or a deficiency in certain digestive enzymes or hydrochloric acid.
