Can you eat too much fruit?

Can you eat too much fruit?

Summers almost here…and with that…comes the best (debatable, I know) fruits to Australia!! I’m talking mangos, cherries, grapefruit, figs, currants, grapes, mangos again….! So, the question is, can you eat too much of these delicious fruits? As per the Australian Dietary Guidelines outlines, 5-6 serves per day of fruit is recommended for the average Australian.

3 of The Many Benefits of Kettlebell Training

Kettlebell training has had a steep rise in popularity over the last twenty to thirty years. Like most things good about strength and conditioning, kettlebells originated in Russia. Exactly when they originated is somewhat unclear, but it is thought they started appearing around 350 years ago as a weighted counterweight for weighing food.

Metabolism as you age-the realities verse assumptions.

Metabolism is the process in which food and drink we consume are converted into a source of energy for us to use. At what rate, is and can be substantially diverse, depending on an individual. A person’s metabolism can speed up, slow down, work at different frequencies, and will generally ‘work’ inversely from person to person, depending on many factors. Genetics, lifestyle, background are just a few components as to what determines how effective our metabolism is, and dictates its development over time.
