Without a doubt correcting food cravings and reducing stress would be the two most difficult things we help clients to change. They are often the biggest reasons why people don’t get the results from their health and fitness efforts that they are looking for. Food cravings can sabotage your best efforts to get in shape, mentally as much as physically. For when you eventually give into the intense and overwhelming need to eat a certain food you feel like you have failed, creating a viscous mental cycle which can lead to increased stress and a lack of enjoyment from eating food. Trying to give up bad health habits is one of the toughest things to do when trying to become healthy, and if you are relying on your willpower to keep you on track you are doomed to fail. This is a common strategy most people adopt and unfortunately willpower will never win the war against food cravings for the problem is on biochemical level and not in your head. For most people learning how to prevent this from happening and weaning themselves off the foods they are addicted to is much harder than any exercise program they will ever try. All of us have experienced food cravings at certain points in our life and as opposed to hunger pains, which can be satisfied with almost any food, food cravings make you yearn for a taste of something very specific, usually sugar, salt, or fat.

In this article we will explain how this works and what you can do to avoid this trap.

And I was supposed to be an expert in all matters regarding health and fitness. So it is no wonder that most of our clients are actually suffering with Adrenal Fatigue yet are quite oblivious to it. I dont know how many times I am confronted with a client who turns up late, suffering anxiety, stress levels to the max, not sleeping much, putting on weight etc etc.And only for them to say “ lets go hard at it tonight as I will feel better after this workout”

For over 15 years I have been training with many clients in their 70's, 80's who suffered from many severe injuries that could have been avoided if they had adopted a strength training routine a few years earlier. This topic is one I feel very strongly about as I know that we can help people significantly improve their quality of life and avoid some of the debilitating problems we often see in older adults. The ignorance of the media to get behind this really irritates me so I hope you share this article with your family and friends so they become aware of the potential dangers of avoiding strength training in older age.
