So I went to a new hairdresser last week, my last one is great but is a 40 min drive away and in Brisbane traffic, it ends up being an hour and a half round trip! The new one is 5 mins away, so it was worth a shot.
However I’m always a bit apprehensive trying a new one as you get to know your hairdressers, they become like friends – so it’s always… Will you like them? Will they like you? Do they do a good job? Do you like the salon and the rest of the crew? Does it all smell like chemicals in there? Do they leave you alone or talk too much? Does it cost 4 times more than you thought it would?
It’s been an eye opening last 6 months for me on the healthy food front!
I’ve discovered a whole different angle of nutrition based on nourishing, healing and nurturing your body. It supports healthy hormones, regulates your blood sugar, encourages repair and rejuvenation and is basically everything you need for a super healthy body, fast metabolism and easy weight loss/maintenance.
Well turns out your body temperature and heart rate are like a little window into your metabolic system and gives a good indication if it’s cranking properly or spluttering to a halt. Health professionals are using these measures along with blood work and checking a list of symptoms, to give a true picture of what’s working, what’s not and if your hormones and thyroid may be out of whack.
Of all the addictive things I have cut out of my diet, dairy products were one I had left in for the longest time, despite reading other’s bad experiences of it.
Even though the Paleo and Vegan peeps both shun dairy, I was convinced that I had the Northern European gene that had adapted to dairy and so basically was immune to all the supposed negative effects that plague others.
A new friend in my life was quizzing me about what I eat.
We were exchanging recipes and explaining briefly the why, what and hows of our respective eating habits and at one point I said, “I do eat cheese because I like it and it suits my weight loss goals but I am aware of the gumming up effect it sometimes has on me if I eat it too much. As well as the fact that all dairy food is supposed to cause inflammation in your body, much like grains do. But I eat it anyway.”
