Many people will have a fat loss goal intermittently throughout their lives. There are many approaches you can take to fat loss and finding one that works for you is key. This makes a fat loss journey more sustainable and therefore the more likely you are to achieve and maintain results.
Our blends provide a delicious functional drink designed to provide targeted nutritional support and help you feel fuller for longer. Providing perfect nourishment for when you need it most and to help avoid snacking.
To supercharge your blend, add some MCTs which are types of saturated fatty acids which rather than being stored, tend to be quickly absorbed, converted into ketones and utilised in cellular metabolism and energy production.
Recent thinking points to the emphasis of our muscle gain, rather than focus on fat. Muscle determines almost everything about your body composition including how you regulate your blood sugar and manage fats. It’s key to your energy levels and longevity, not just about how you look in the gym. Some even argue that we are ‘under-muscled’ rather than ‘overweight’. Pivotal to this is our protein intake, getting enough amino acids on a regular basis supports this.

Are We Drowning In Dopamine?
Dopamine, a neurotransmitter in the brain, is often described as a ‘reward or pleasure chemical’. Triggers for our dopamine response now come in the form of falling down a scroll-hole on social media, alcohol, excess caffeine, ultra-processed foods, that shopping high and ‘likes’ on our posts. Jo Woodhurst delves into ways to combat this.
Matcha - The Jitter-free Caffeine Hit
Caffeine is a potent stimulant that helps you feel more alert, however it also prompts the release of stress chemicals like adrenaline and cortisol, which for some caffeine-sensitive people contributes to anxiety and other unwanted stress-related side effects.

10 Powerful Allies To Support Menopause

CAN I EXERCISE WHILST FASTED?
Absolutely! When you exercise in a fasted state it dramatically increases fat burning and muscle growth as you produce up to 300 times more growth hormone. Without the glucose and glycogen to pull energy from during your workout, your body is forced to adapt and pull its energy from fat. Since your metabolic demand during a workout is significantly higher than at rest, you will be burning more body fat during your workout. This leads to a much more efficient and effective workout giving you amazing fat burning results!
WILL MISSING BREAKFAST AFFECT MY METABOLISM?
If you consume a healthy balanced diet, you have nothing to worry about. Keep in mind that the old saying ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’ was created by a breakfast cereal company, it’s not based on scientific evidence. Of course, it’s the nutritional quality of the foods you consume across the day that’s of primary importance for your general health and wellbeing.
IS MCT BETTER THAN COCONUT OIL IN TERMS OF FAT BURNING AND KETONES?
Yes, MCT is vastly superior as it comprises only the key medium chain fats C8 and C10, which are readily converted into energy and ketones that help facilitate a state of ketosis. As a general guide you would need to take 6 tablespoons of coconut oil to gain the same amount of those helpful C8 and C10 medium chain triglycerides found in one tablespoon of MCT.
WILL I LOSE WEIGHT?
There are so many different styles of intermittent fasting, time restricting eating, ketogenic diets and keto-fasting to choose from and they are all great tools for helping with healthy weight management. Our advice would be to consult with your GP or a local Nutritional Therapist for guidance when selecting the most appropriate fasting strategy, one that suits your lifestyle, capabilities, level of activity and goals. Whichever strategy you settle on, our products are designed to help support weight management and encourage healthy food habits to keep you focused on achieving your goals.
