One of my favourite nutritionists and experts is Marisa Peer. I met her when I was working at Men’s Fitness Magazine after seeing her on Channel 4’s Supersize vs Superskinny. She hypnotised Anna Richardson to eat less food and lose weight – and she did. The whole show was about Anna trying different diets – from eating baby food to living on lemon juice and maple syrup and you know what – Marisa’a hypnotherapy proved to be the most effective weight loss method. This fascinated me!
I then attended a few of Marisa’s workshops and met her personally when I wanted to give up chocolate. After an hour’s session, i gave it up completely for over 12 months and never looked back. The power of the mind is a great tool when you know how to control it.
When thinking about trying for a family – it made complete sense for me to read Marisa’s new book ‘Trying get pregnant (and succeeding)’. Marisa has such a positive outlook on everything and certainly knows her stuff. The book covers everything from nutrition to positive thinking and after writing down lots of positive affirmations and sticking them on my walls and mirrors (somewhere where you can look at them everyday) I felt more optimistic.
I also tried new supplements (to be covered in a later post) and listened to her CD at night just before bed.
As Marisa says, ‘what your mind says, your body will eventually follow’, so I continued to tell my body what it was going to do and had lots of positive thoughts.
I would certainly recommend this to anyone looking to start a family. Your mind is so powerful – you could be the most healthiest person in the world but if your mind isn’t ready to accept children in to your life and the changes your body has to go through to get there, then your body won’t be!
Give it a go.
As explained in an earlier post, one of my first stops for aiding my recovery was KX Gym in London.
Gideon, my personal trainer prescribed me all sorts of pills and potions including the KX 365 supplements, which features a multivitamin and CoQ10 for the morning and an Omega-3 fish oil and Antoxidant tablet for the evening.
But what does what? The CoQ10 is crucial for helping the body to generate energy. So this was perfect for helping me to maintaining my energy levels. The multi-vitamin then meant that I got all my B vitamins for energy too as well as vitamin’s D and C to support my immune system.
The afternoon supplements, which were Omega-3 fish oils and an antioxidant, meant I got 660mg of EPA and DHA, essential fats – which help to support the heart and joints, whilst promoting muscle development, brain health and regulating hormones, whilst the antioxidant was perfect for helping me to cope with all the harmful effects of free radicals – those nasty things that cause the ageing process and disease.
So there you have it. One month works out at £85 but this is literally all you need supplement wise for the month and makes supplement taking and remembering sooooooo easy!
My first point of call was to see Gideon Remfry at KX gym in Chelsea.
He slashed my gym routine no end. No more training twice a day, no more running 26 miles a week and no more hammering my adrenal glands to the inch of their life. It was scary, but I knew it had to be done.
He also recommended I take KX daily supplements for one month, which feature a multivitamin and mineral for AM alongside CoQ10 and then an Omega-3 fish oil and Antoxidant for after lunch.
The handy packaging of the supps, made them super easy to carry around with me every day – no jiggling pill pots or no heavy packets. All I simply had to do was pull one side and out the other side pop the supplements, each clearly labelled so I knew exactly what I was taking and why. Clever eh?
