RecommendationsProducts and resources that I support
Here are some of my favourite books that are good introductions to whole food or Paleo eating. These are the books that started me on my own health journey.
Health and marketing guru Dianne Sanfilipo is a comprehensive and simple introduction to the Paleo diet. This is a fantastic resource for people new to eating grain and dairy free. This is a good place to start if the world of “real food” and animal fats is just too scary. Far from being preachy or restrictive Sanfilipo outlines the basics of digestion and why certain foods will support health better. Two great features of this book include a graphic guide for digestion and a number of tailored meal plans that will support bio-indivdual requirements.
We all know what a “beer belly” looks like, but did you know gluten and wheat do the same thing? Coealiac disease and gluten intolerance are becoming increasingly more common because diets that contain gluten and are based around refined carbohydrates.
In his first book, biochemist Robb Wolf, provides a simple introduction to why a diet free of so-called neolithic foods can cure a host of diseases. Wolf has been one of the leading figures in the global shift towards ancestral health. His book gives readers all the information they need to understand why the introduction of grains and dairy made the human race less healthy. The book highlights four essential pillars to good health: nutrition, movement (not just exercise), sleep and stress management. Read this to learn why taking it easy and relaxing is a key to weight loss and health.

Recommendations: Mental health support
Eating right and living a healthy lifestyle so important to support good mental health. But sometimes it isn’t enough and we need other support on the way.
Making the decision to seek support for your mental health can be incredibly tough. Finding time to fit it into a busy life, can be even tougher.
This is why I recommend utilising technology. There are some great services out there such as Better Help. This is an online counselling service that will match you to a suitable therapist.
