Is porridge good for you?

Breakfast is a pain in the arse. I’m not sure why.  Presumably it’s because people got to bed to late.  Fuck knows.  But whatever it is, it’s making choosing a decent breakfast taxing.

Here’s something I posted on the W10 site which is probably too good not to share here also: I’m not big into traditional, sugar-riddled, processed desserts, but I do – like most people – have a penchant for the odd something sweet.  Here’s one of my current favourites that I think you’ll like.

I’m am advocate of high fat, high/moderate protein and a lower proportion of carbohydrate nutrition.  And other than the occasional ‘off-day’ where we indulge, I firmly believe that we should stick to food in their natural state.  And we should eat these foods to satiety rather than counting calories.

I’ve developed a reputation for getting fat loss results.  And I can honestly sat that my clients see better results, faster.  Why?  Two reasons.  One, my programs work.  And two, I’m very clear up front about what it takes.

Good article by US based nutritionist Jonny Bowden – click through below. http://jonnybowdenblog.com/diet-secrets-of-the-hollywood-stars/ Bottom line, you need to do what works for you….and do it consistently.  And let’s face it: if one diet or system worked without fail, we’d all be doing it and you probably wouldn’t be reading this post.
