Foodie and JERF (just eat real food)


At Benchmark Fitness, we are passionate about feeling fabulous!


"Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food"


Hippocrates was an ancient Greek physician and is considered as one of the most outstanding figures in the history of medicine. 


What has changed? A lot you rightfully say! The way we grow food, the way we process it and the way we eat. 


However, we must change our attitude towards food. Everything is readily available, in enormous portions, processed and full of chemicals. Believe me, I could write a book about this subject! It really is no rocket science, good food choices - back to basics and a balanced diet plus exercise, that's the key. It's called "common sense". 


So, if you are interested and like to read more, I have put up a a link rather than waffeling  on about how bad our food and our food choices have become. 


One is - really interesting what has become of wheat.


Please also go to the Changing Habits site in the dropdown menu of the Nutrition topic. The most useful information about food, attitude towards it, Recipes, Education and so much more!!! I really urge you to have a look. 


I am simply a big believer of balance. There has to be balance - it's not a problem if you drink alcohol, it's not a problem to eat junk food every now and then, chocolate, too rich and sugary foods (and drinks)....but we all know how it makes us feel after indulging:  sluggish, tired, sore muscles and unmotivated.....So we should pick ourselves up the next day and do better: Lots of veggies, fruit, water, herbal or unsweetened fruit teas - your body will thank you for it.

You only have this one body to live in, so treat it right. 


Lots of people say, it is too expensive to eat healthy. I don't agree. Being organised and preparation is the key. We can help you with that as well - get back on track with your shopping, your pantry, your cooking, your life! We are all busy, but with a bit of thought and maybe some help, it's possible to change. 


Call to find out how.

Lots of Love
