Last week I had two wonderful people come into the clinic who had been following certain dietary paradigms for a number of years, respectively. One had been vegan, the other had done keto.

Ok.. Hopefully by now you have taken the time to sit and at least ponder the idea of what it is that you'd like to achieve.

Is it just me, or has 2016 been an epic year for energy shift? SO many things going on in the world, and many of them are not so great.

Raise your hand if you are a habitual self-sabotage?!? Are you always destroying all the hard work you did, maybe on a healthy eating regime?
