I wrote and filmed this the following back in 2011 before Whole Foods were exposed for selling GMO foods. Now they are lower on my list of favorite places to shop though they do still stock some awesome stuff.
While I was in California I visited as many of these stores as possible… So many amazing foods to enjoy! And an awesome place to meet people!
Growing up as a chubby/fat kid working in my parents newsagent I would see fitness magazines almost every day, wondering how the cover models created their physiques. Slowly and surely I’ve learned more and more, finding knowledgeable people to learn from.
This interview is with one of the current models in the fitness industry, Tom Dyer. Tom is also one of the founders of Ultimate City Bootcamps, an awesome group training experience in the City of London. I’ve been on a fair few of their sessions, when you try it you will know that it’s the real thing! When you’ve watched this video check outwww.FaceBook.com/UltimateCityBootcamps for more info. Enjoy!
One of the most important things I’ve come to learn is that the better way of eating and ‘dieting’ is to eat real food. By that I mean real food that has very few or no added ingredients. A fish. A piece of chicken. A cucumber (that is just cucumber). A bowl of brown rice. The simpler it is, the better it is. If you stick to food that either had/has parents or grows in the ground then you’re on the right track.
This is an interview with my nanna. She grew up in a world where they ate REAL food!
What is this nonsense they’re telling us to buy from supermarkets day in day out? That the supermarkets are enticing us to buy with offers like buy one get one free, half price, save… Playing on our emotional desperation in this ‘economic climate’. There is something profoundly wrong with food the marketeers are telling us to eat, hence why I interviewed my Nanna! Because, when she was younger marketing was at the very most – lame, and they ate REAL food, they chose to eat without influence.
Massive thanks to the awesome Olympic Medalist and world recorder breaker (110m Hurdles) Colin Jackson for this very quick interview. He gives us his number one healthy tip for losing weight. And it’s not what I expected him to say…
If you’re eating Breakfast Cereal to lose weight and ‘balance’ your diet think again.
They promote their products as ‘low fat’ which is true, though the reality is that most of these foods are full of sugar and wheat which is NOT part of a balanced diet, and will happily be converted into fat inside your body. Not to mention the implications added refined sugar has on your mood, insulin resistance and risk of diabetes.
Stay cool about it, it is serious, though just be aware and know that added sugar in your foods should be cut right down and or avoided!
Organic Raw Honey is an alternative to consider (unless you are on a strict fat loss program) because this kind of honey does actually contain nutrients…
