I recently spoke to Mike Davis from Purposeful about my food philosophy, Meatless Monday and the 'Get Your Man in the Kitchen' campaign. Tune in via the link below or check out the Humans of Purpose podcast on iTunes.
Kudos to Peter FitzSimons! Shedding more than 40 kilos from your frame is no mean feat. The self-proclaimed ‘fatty boomka’ says he did it by eschewing sugar and grog, and upping the exercise. Now he’s on a mission to tell blokes how to shed excess weight and keep it off. His new book The Great Aussie Bloke Slim-Down recently hit the stands… just in time for Christmas.
Yet, as a dietitian, my peers and I have been warning people for decades about the perils of consuming too much of the sweet stuff as well as booze. We continue to sing the praises of fruit and vegetables as the cornerstones of any good diet, and we encourage people to have a hearty intake of whole grains, dairy and lean proteins, including legumes and beans. Plus, we discourage the over-consumption of ‘discretionary’ foods such as baked goods, sweet biscuits and the like. And we categorically promote the virtues of being a teetotaler or firmly suggest that people reduce the amount of alcohol they consume. However, it has taken author and ex rugby star Peter FitzSimons to uncover the ‘secret’ to weight loss, particularly for men. Clever lad!
I recently spoke to Kate Agnew from Dietitian Connection about the 'Get Your Man in the Kitchen' campaign, Dudes Talk Nutrition plus all things nutrition.
I'm excited to announce that I've teamed up with Canadian dietitian, Andy De Santis (aka Andy The Rd).
Andy is a private practice dietitian and nutrition writer/blogger based in Toronto, Canada. He holds a Master’s degree in Public Health Nutrition. He has previously worked at the Canadian Diabetes Association and is a charismatic nutrition communicator. Like myself, he loves helping people to reach their health goals through dietary modification. He strongly believes that following a healthy diet can improve someone’s quality of life.
