My Vitamins Carb Blocker

My Vitamins Total Carb BlockerA life without carbs is not a life worth living and they are essential to a well balanced diet and are a source of energy for exercisers, but they also have their flaws in that you can risk storing carbs as fat rather than using it as energy and that’s where these handy My Vitamin Carb Blockers come in to play!

I’ve started using the My Vitamins Total Carb Blockers as part of my regime.

Quite simply the benefits of the Carb Blockers is that they are made up of white kidney bean extract. White kidney extract quite simply prevents the breakdown of carbs into glucose i.e. it turns less into fat. So this will help aid anyone looking to lose weight where a high carb diet is consumed. And it also helps to maintain lean muscle mass. Read more to see how to use them and the benefits they can have………

Oatty Yoghurt Breakfast Pots

Oat breakfast pots meal prepI’ve recently started building nutrition plans for people and one of the most common things I hear from my clients is that they find breakfast is the hardest meal of the day and I definitely agree. The morning’s are always a rush no matter what your job and routine is. So the key to eating a healthy breakfast is prep prep and more prep! That is the only way to stop myself from having a breakfast that is bad for me. Quite often there are recipes that need an oven or a hob to cook on and quite a lot of people eat their breakfast when they get to work and not surprisingly your work doesn’t offer a fully operational kitchen complete with a cooker! I was watching a few colleagues who would pop to a nearby Soho Coffee and would buy a tiny yoghurt pot for a couple of pounds and whilst it looked amazing all I could think was I don’t know what’s in it and how expensive it was, and that led me to decide that I could make it for less money and I could make it 10 times more delicious!!! So I’ve bought myself 5 small kilner jars so I can make my own breakfast pots!


  1. Oats
  2. Greek Yoghurt
  3. Honey
  4. Cinnamon
  5. Cacao nibs
  6. Linwoods flaxseed, pumpkin seed, goji berries


  • Pour a layer of oats in to the base of the kilner jar
  • Spoon on a layer of greek yoghurt
  • Sprinkle some ground cinnamon on top of the yoghurt
  • Drizzle a small amount of honey on top of the cinnamon
  • Repeat all of the above.
  • Add a pinch of cacao nibs
  • And finish with 1/4 tsp of flaxseed mix on top

To start this off I am looking for 3 lovely individuals who want to help me build my portfolio to go alongside my own weight loss success of losing 2.5 stone over the course of 12 months!

Easy peasy!

As part of the 12 week plan I will provide a list of recipes, meal plans, foods you should be eating or eliminating, important information about nutrition and eating a healthy diet as well as weekly updates (or more frequently if required) to provide support via email, facebook messenger and I would also recommend using the My Fitness Pal app and I will monitor your daily intake and advise on where you are doing well and where you can improve.

Late Night Snacker – How to stop your Snacks in their Tracks

fridge with food

Are you a late night snacker? I used to be and oh boy let me tell you how this was such a hard habit to break! And unfortunately if you want to lose those extra pounds then you’ve got to break this habit 🙁 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news. The reason why late night eating is bad for you is because of the way your body functions; at night time your metabolism will start to slow down, also your body will be digesting food whilst you’re sleeping; whilst these doesn’t seem so terrible it does have a knock on effect because your body is working hard at digesting the food it’s not helping your body to rest and restore itself, this means you will probably have interrupted sleeping patterns and when you’re tired and cranky the next day you want to reach out for the bad foods that’s going to give you a sugar rush to pick you up again. Not good. Read on to hear my tips for stopping your snacks in their tracks!

Spot Reduction – It’s A Myth

fat burningHow many times have you heard someone claiming that they do 200 situps in a day and accredit their washboard stomach to it? Yes, those situps will help develop the muscle but it won’t do jack about the layer of fat over those abdominals. It’s a common misconception that you can exercise to target a specific area and thereby reduce the fat in that area – wrong. Spot reduction of fat is a myth. Fact. Keep reading and I will tell you why and what you can do about it!

How to Eat a Healthy Breakfast

Coconut Paleo Cereal mix

2.5 stone ago, I used to take a loaf of bread to work each week and every morning for morning I would eat 2 slices of big fat white toast. And this was THE hardest habit to break. I knew I had to put a stop to this but I genuinely had no idea what I could eat for breakfast that was healthy and easy to have on the go.

I would research and look at all of these suggestions for breakfasts to have and they were all boiled egg with asparagus soldiers, or scrambled egg with bacon or some other variation that required me to eat breakfast at home. This just didn’t work for me. I already got up early enough and I don’t have an oven or hob at work that would enable me to eat these delicious suggestions or a boss who would allow me to not work and spend 15 minutes cooking a full breakfast instead of working! Sure I would have these on the weekend and would enjoy them but I needed something that I could make in advance and was quick and I could eat at my desk and wasn’t going to go off quickly, I needed to extend my meal prep to breakfast too.

After my first attempt of making quinoa and egg muffins (which I love straight out of the oven when they are nice and hot!) but reheated I genuinely thought I was going to be sick! It just wasn’t going to work for me. So I’ve had to come up with my own solutions such as;

All of these added some variety to my working weekday breakfasts and I found I could prep them on a weekend and box up to take to work during the week! Hopefully if you’ve been having a similar struggle this will help you out and save you some hassle and stress and might stop some of those excuses you may have been coming up with so you could still eat your toast every morning!!! 😛 Hope you enjoy all of these yummy breakfast treats!

Love Roo xx

Meal Planning

chia seedsI wanted to recap on a post I did in 2014 because I think this is really important for those who are kick starting their healthy eating regime. Here’s a link to my post about how to eat healthy on a budget and about planning for your week ahead. Setting aside 10 – 15 minutes one evening a week can make a HUGE impact on your healthy eating during the whole week.
