Keep It Simple

Don’t get caught up in the hype! Keep it simple.

In today’s society we are constantly bombarded by messages about diet and exercise; food advice, recommended exercise durations, low fat, sugar free, gluten free, 30 minutes a day, an hour a day, vegan, paleo, more carbs, less carbs, what are carbs? ARRGGH!!!

Healthy Eating and Exercise


It can all get overwhelming and hard to know what to do. And not only that but we are getting it from more avenues than ever before it’s not just TV, print and radio anymore now there is facebook, twitter, Instagram.

It seems that now more than ever in this age of unlimited information that understanding health, diet and exercise is harder than ever.

So my advice to you is not to get caught up in the hype, don’t listen to the marketing campaigns and the products that seem to be the answer to immediate results.

If you are on twitter, Instagram or Facebook we see so many inspirational messages every day. But it is very easy to tweet, etc. such a platitude, it might get a lot of likes, clicks, shares, retweets, etc. but ultimately it doesn’t mean anything unless you take action.

A lot of people, and you may be included see these and think that’s great but I can’t seem to change or make it work. So I say don’t overcomplicate it or overthink it. Make one small addition to your life that you can do on a daily basis that is going to ultimately lead to great change.

Take it step by step, gradually start to eat a little better, cut down on the snack foods, slowly start to incorporate more exercise into your life, make little incremental changes that eventually will crowd out that which is not serving to make you better and before you know it you will be on your way to a new and improved you.

If you would like more advice or assistance from Peter on how to make improvements in your life he is a qualified Personal Trainer and Fitness Coach and would love to work with you to helping you achieve your goals.
