    Overwhelmed? Drowning? Out-of-sort? Let's chat about Anxiety.

    Overwhelmed? Drowning? Out-of-sort? Let's chat about Anxiety.

    We firmly believe that speaking to a trained mental health professional is 100% wellness and 0% wankery.  So in the spirit of wellness,  this is the first of many conversations we will have on the podcast about mental health.  We need to give our emotional health the same importance we give physical wellbeing.

    Lyndi, Jenna and millions of other people around the world have been diagnosed with clinical anxiety. It's nothing to be ashamed of, but it is something we can work with and learn from everyday.  Lyndi has learnt a lot along her journey with anxiety and every conversation about treatment options or medication further removes the stigmas around asking for help. 

    If you’re struggling with anxiety, depression or any other mental health condition (or even if you are just feeling ‘out-of-sorts’ emotionally), it doesn’t hurt to simply ‘have a chat’ with a professional. You can start with your GP, who can refer you to an awesome Psychiatrist or psychologist. Or you can find a counsellor you like. 
    The hardest is part is reaching out for support and help. You’ll have to be brave but I promise, it is so worth it.

    The worst health advice on the internet

    The worst health advice on the internet

    With all the pseudoscience and wacky nutrition nonsense, it’s hard to know what to eat anymore. Huge amounts of nutrition information isn’t always a good thing.. and with the internet era comes a whole new wave of information. 

    When every Instagrammer with an interest in avocados feels comfortable handing out health advice (even when it’s completely wrong)... we have a problem. 

    When Netflix releases a new documentary every 6 months that makes us scared of a different food group... we have a problem. 

    As a dietitian and nutritionist, Lyndi comes across bad health advice all the time. So we thought it was time to sort the wellness from the wankery and run through  the worst health advice on the internet – along with some important things to learn along with way.

    Do I really need organic food & supplements to be healthy? Wellness or Wankery?

    Do I really need organic food & supplements to be healthy? Wellness or Wankery?

    During Covid lockdowns, Lyndi was bright eyed and bushy tailed and set on having her own organic vegetable patch. Upon reflection she realised she was probably  impacted by the purity ideals of 'eating organic'. She ended up paying a ridiculous amount of money per carrot and was providing a daily delicious lunch to all the local wildlife. But do we really need to go to these extremes? Is it worth the money to buy organic produce? 

    Rohan sent in a question for this week's podcast asking just that... oh and he wants to know if he should be spending money on expensive supplements. 

    Let's get into it.

    What's the go with Keto?

    What's the go with Keto?

    The Keto diet is the just Atkins diet that has been sold to you again. 
    Every few years, a new diet becomes the current obsession. Keto is having it’s moment but before then it was the Atkins diet, South Beach, Cabbage diet, Body type diet etc. The list goes on and on....

    So what is the Ketogenic diet and does it really work?
    Disclaimer: The truth is that all diets work. As long as you can stick to them for the rest of your life. Science says. But most diets are utterly unsustainable. Which is why I believe the best diet to lose weight is no diet at all.

    Giving up the scale was the best thing I ever did. Wellness or Wankery?

    Giving up the scale was the best thing I ever did. Wellness or Wankery?

    You don’t need to weigh yourself. Ever.
    In fact, weighing yourself may make it harder to find your healthiest weight in the long term. Have you noticed how seeing a number that you didn’t want on the scale can throw you into a spin and actually demotivate you?
    Your health, your progress, your wellbeing cannot be measured with scales.  But why are we all still so hooked on this number?

Awesome thanks girls

Love it

Gangster2224 ,

Finally some commonsense!

Thank you for giving us the green light to eat well and be well, minus all the wellness wankery that surrounds us continuously!

R.i.n.e.l.d.a ,

No diets ever again!!

I absolutely applaud Lyndi for calling out the wankery. I have dieted. I have also regained all the weight plus. In the mean time I have had a baby and have realised just what an awesome machine my body is - skinny or not. I am thrilled to hear the conversations and to have finally found a message that resonates. Eat real food. Enjoy life. No ifs, no buts, no wankery.
