Over the last few years, whenever I have questioned top personal trainers, nutritionists or athletes on how they eat, most of them have responded not with the 5:2, the Dukan or the Blood Group Diet, but with one word: "paleo".

How I Lost 60 Pounds Without Dieting or Eliminating Food Groups

In my early 20s, a friend took me to her gym, where I decided to weigh myself. The number on the scale horrified me so much that I immediately started to make better choices around eating and continued to exercise almost everyday.

Yesterday I had the shaved Brussels sprout salad from my fav cafe and I finally realized what was missing from my previous brussels sprouts experiences.... Bacon. Delicious, crispy, salty bacon. Of course!!

The Skinny on Fat

Shannon Cooper | Posted 23.01.2014 | UK Lifestyle

Fat-free does not mean healthy, it's generally pretty much the opposite. Low fat milk, diet yoghurts, margarine, fat-free mayonnaise & 'healthy whole grains' is what has been preached to the public for a number of years now. Since that began people have become fatter & sicker. Heart disease, obesity & diabetes have increased.

I love sweet pancakes but have never ventured to the realms of savoury ones....today that all changed- Enter Hulk Pancakes. These are A-OK for breakfast lunch or dinner, I will probably eat them for all of those meals today because they taste so damn good.

This dish is perfect for those nights that are cooling down, it is warming & wholesome without being stodgy. It is low in carbohydrates, a great source of protein & full of even more amazing digestive health benefits if you make it with delicious bone broth.

Hmmmmm so what to say about this tart?... Loads of magnesium, fibre, sneaky green stuff & so damn tasty no-one would ever suspect it's NOT loaded with refined sugar & processed cr@p. Serve it at your next dinner party...

You Are What You Eat Ate

Food is our fuel, it can be our best form of medicine or our slowest form of poison. Every cell in our body can be affected by the fuel we feed them. If we feed our body crappy-quality damaged vegetable oils that is what then makes up our cells or damages them.

Clean and Healthy Chicken Stroganoff

This doesn't look like a regular stroganoff but man it tastes amazing! The thighs don't dry out and are a taste sensation! It tastes just like the beef stroganoff my mum used to make when we were little, only less beefy ;) Get on it, you'll love it. Serve it with zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice for a great nutrient-packed & low carbohydrate accompaniment.

Guilt-Free Caramel Walnut Cookies

Mmmmmm the sweet smell of cookies. There is something very comforting about cookies and these ones are a perfect match for a cup of tea/coffee/smoothie/water. Really any excuse to eat them will suffice. They are sweetened only with a few fresh dates so won't have you off your face on a sugar high.

Beef Cheeks & Moroccan Cous Cous

Beef cheek comes from the cows' facial muscle not their butt cheek. It is well developed from all the 'cud chewing' they do & it is packed with gelatin-rich connective tissue making it a pretty tough cut to throw on the BBQ but perfect for slow cooking. Gelatin is brilliant for the health of our skin, hair, nails, digestion, immune system & joints.

Stop Counting Calories

Shannon Cooper | Posted 12.09.2013 | UK Lifestyle
Shannon Cooper

Fats are NOT the devil & fat doesn't make you fat. Your body needs fat! Your weight loss and ultimately health will suffer if you are NOT giving your body enough fat. Good dietary fat is used to build the outer lipid layer of every cell in the body, and if that layer is impaired, your ability to process carbohydrates will be impaired, and you'll get fatter.

Carrot Cake Porridge

This tastes just like carrot cake only with bucket-loads more nutritional value than cake. Yeah, it has zucchini in it but don't have a meltdown, you can't even taste it, it just adds goodness. Zucchini is low calorie and a great source of fibre. It is rich in vitamin A, flavonoid and poly-phenolic antioxidants

Did you know you can be addicted to sugar? A lot of people are, I used to be one of them. Sugar is like heroin, when you are addicted you NEED it. These peppermint choc cups are sugar free and the perfect little morsel to knock that sugar craving on the head.

Valentine's Day Dining, Caveman Style!

Whilst I don't subscribe to Paleo as such, the premise on which it's based is fairly sound - high in protein, fibre and healthy fats and championing fresh and unprocessed foods i.e. quality foods that would have been available for our Stone Age predecessors to hunt and gather.

You are also more likely to succeed if you borrow an idea from the bodybuilding community. Have planned cheat meals (if deserved) every five-seven days and you are far likelier to succeed in the long term.
