    Episode #118: 5 Nutrition Mistakes To Avoid In January (If you want to kickstart your year the right way)

    Episode #118: 5 Nutrition Mistakes To Avoid In January (If you want to kickstart your year the right way)

    Are you currently working on a nutrition and fitness goal? 
    Are you wanting to achieve better nutrition and have started to work on your diet?
    The truth is that many athletes start the year off incorrectly when it comes to their diet and health goals and I want to help you out. 
    In this episode, I share with you 5 common nutrition mistakes that you need to avoid at the start of the year so that you can ACTUALLY kickstart your year the right way. 
    There is so much focus on rapid weight loss, quick fixes, supplements, and new diets as part of every year's new years resolution trend. Despite many athletes having good intentions and simply wanting to improve themselves or get back on track, they become victims to these issues. 
    It’s not always about what TO DO. It’s just as important to know what NOT TO DO as well. That is why I made this episode - so you know what common things you need to avoid that come into play in January every year.
    In today’s podcast, I will cover:
    The 5 mistakes to avoid every JanuaryWhy nutrition can be a minefield at the start of each yearHow to start your year off the right way (so you can build momentum and get success!)Listen to the full episode to learn more about real nutrition and the experiences of a Sports Dietitian.

    Episode #117: Overrated vs. Underrated - Nutrition Edition (Part 3)

    Episode #117: Overrated vs. Underrated - Nutrition Edition (Part 3)

    What foods and diets are overrated and underrated in the nutrition world?
    A few weeks ago I dropped an episode sharing 5 things in nutrition and rated them as overrated or underrated.
    In this episode, I explore another 5 things in the nutrition world and tell you if I believe they are overrated or underrated - using my experiences as a Sports Dietitian and Nutrition Coach helping athletes level up their nutrition and health. 
    There are so many diets, diet foods, drinks, strategies, beliefs, and misinformation in the health and fitness space. It is no wonder so many get confused or wonder which way is the right way. 
    The truth is that there is no universal “correct” way of doing things or going about your nutrition but hopefully I can share my expertise and perspective to help you determine if something is worth your attention.

    In today's episode I rate:
    - BCAA
    - "Healthy" ice cream
    - New Years Resolutions
    - Gluten-Free foods
    - Flexible Dieting
    Keep in mind though that this is subjective and context matters - I just wanted to bring you a fun episode to share my thoughts. 
    In today’s podcast, I will cover:
    What is underrated in the nutrition worldWhat is overrated in the nutrition worldListen to the full episode to learn more about nutrition and the experiences of a Sports Dietitian.

    Are you setting a new year's resolution?
    Feeling stuck and not sure how to kickstart your year?'
    Want to know the correct way to set new year goals?
    In this episode, I deep dive into the new year resolution game and discuss why new year, new me resolutions are not worth it and may actually be setting you back. I also share my approach to new year “resolutions” - teaching you my New Year New LIFE Resolution approach.  
    The traditional way of setting new year resolutions has some clear shortcomings that impacts the success you can get from them. You need to approach your new year goal setting in a different way. 
    My approach is a foolproof way to approach new year’s resolutions because it overcomes the shortcomings of “new year new me” goals and focuses on long term success.
    In today’s podcast, I will cover:
    Why new year, new me goals are setting you back!The issue with traditional new year’s resolutions My New Year New Life approach explainedListen to the full episode to learn how to kickstart your 2022 correctly and effectively!

    Episode #114: Supplements & Doping Risk - What You Need To Know As An Athlete To Avoid Trouble!

    Episode #114: Supplements & Doping Risk - What You Need To Know As An Athlete To Avoid Trouble!

    Do you take supplements but don’t think about the risks associated with it?
    Or do you worry about the risk of doping and want to avoid this?
    In this episode, I open up about the dangers of trusting supplements and the trouble athletes can get themselves into if they are not auditing their supplement strategy and source - sharing the key ways you can avoid getting done for doping.  
    The truth is that supplements will always be a part of the athlete lifestyle. However, that doesn’t mean you can’t put in the right process to avoid issues and stay clean in your sport. Supplements can be a helpful tool to use but needs to be done correctly and with due diligence - especially if you are in the elite levels where you are competing. 
    Supplement doping risk is an ever present cloud that hovers around the athlete space and every year athletes get caught doping - both intentionally and inadvertently doing so. 

    I want to help you avoid this so you can compete without risking your career and success - not to mention the health implications of taking substances that are banned or unsafe.  
    In today’s podcast, I will cover:
    Why athletes need to be aware of doping riskThe key ways you can EASILY minimise and/or avoid the risk of dopingWhere to source SAFE supplements in AustraliaListen to the full episode to learn how to stay undoped!
