Utilising this style of eating takes the 'diet' out of your personal nutrition, turning it into a healthy (and enjoyable) part of your lifestyle, rather than a restrictive eating pattern you (perhaps) don't enjoy for the majority of the week that ultimately has a finite lifespan.
While I get where they're coming from - stop trying to starve yourself to look like *insert name of slender popstar*and focus on having a strong, healthy body instead - why do they have to do it by demonising yet another (often healthy, and often genetic) body type? You wouldn't go round calling people fatty, so why is it okay to comment on them being 'skinny'?
Choose some people you love and respect, tell them exactly what your goals are, what you're going to do, why you're doing it, and what you expect to have achieved in a specific timeframe. You tell them how much this means to you, and how committed you are to making this happen.
A balanced, healthy, protein-rich diet and regular exercise will keep you fit and healthy, and whey protein provides a quick and healthy option for today's hectic lifestyle. There are no magic supplements that will will help you achieve your goals alone.

Fresh tuna is a great source of protein and omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin E and antioxidant minerals. Make sure your fresh fish is odourless and best eaten on day of purchase. I've found the easiest way to deseed a cucumber is to slice it into quarters, then run a sharp knife under the seeds to lift them out.
I try to eat a balanced diet. I eat fruit and vegetables every day. I eat meat every other day. I'm aware of the need for legumes and nuts and avocado as my fat. But I just don't have the time or headspace to focus on food full time.
This soup is quick to make and its full of good nutrients; brothy soups are light and easy for a summer soup. If you add some whole grains, protein and vegetables, it becomes a hearty meal.
You know what? I was proud. I was proud to show off a bump that was mine, that had grown one baby and was trying to keep another safely tucked up. After every discharge I felt relief that my body was doing the right thing and keeping my boy in until he was ready. It felt miraculous in a way.
The human body simply isn't structured to be sitting for long duration and when you do that, it begins to fault. Here are my tips to build activity into your day to ensure you keep moving... for many years to come!

Let's be honest. No matter how much we all try to pretend to love hitting the gym, most of us (save a superhuman few) find exercising a complete and utter chore. That's why we're dedicating the entire month of April to fitspiration, where we hope to inspire our readers (and ourselves) to get fit and embrace sport by instilling positivity and realistic goal setting.
