Exercise: A love/hate story

Aug 19, 2017

We love to exercise and the incredible endorphin release after a great workout…

But even we have days when the ‘meh’ is strong and we’d rather just kick back and veg out. It happens to all of us.

Despite all the pros of regular, thorough exercise routines, one should never forget that adequate rest, a good night’s sleep and days off are crucial in physical, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

We all need to take a timeout once in a while and give our bodies adequate time to recover. A problem we see all too often in some clients after very noticeable results are seen and achieved from a good exercise routine, is when their great routine becomes an unhealthily obsessive routine, which can be just as bad, if not worse than an indolent, sedentary lifestyle. Never forget to take time out and get back to you. The stepper will be there in the morning.

Diets: The “eat different, not less” of it all

Aug 19, 2017

It’s difficult to believe that even now, when people hear the word ‘diet’ they immediately think of consuming less of everything that they currently eat, as opposed to changing what it is they eat.

While it’s certainly true that certain diets do look to control portions, it’s important to note that the focus is on eating foods that promote weight loss, lean muscle gain and sustain energy levels throughout the day, rather than starve the individual of nourishment. A great many fad diets also promote the idea of eating 1 or 2 items for a set period of days only to achieve drastic and rapid results.

We can’t argue that the results of weight loss aren’t there. But what we can say is that this kind of dieting often results in a plethora of health issues that, while not necessarily obvious and/or apparent at first, often come back with a vengeance to haunt the individual at a later stage.

A golden rule of any decent diet, is never to starve yourself. Your body is its own great gauge and instrument for letting you know what it needs and when. It’s a case of educating oneself on good nutrition and ‘listening’ to one’s body when it tells you what it needs.

B+ and other bloody good advice

Aug 19, 2017

We’re believers in the blood type diet and as such we tailor all of our eating plans on our client’s blood group and have found nothing but success, so long as our clients stick to the plan.

Blood type diets are based on the ability to digest lectins differently amongst the various blood types.

While some may regard this as a fad diet, or pseudoscience, we’re committed to the idea of the various blood types representing various ancestral or evolutionary heritage.

Despite naysayers, our clients, when implementing our diet plans, based on their blood types have made tremendous strides in either weight loss, or muscle mass gain, depending on their personal goals.

TESTIMONIALS

    “My wife and I joined MIM in January 2019. Each one of us for our own reasons. I was over weight and surely not strong enough to run for 6 days with a 12kg back pack. I was running fit but needed strength training. Dean compiled an eating plan for me. I trained twice a week with him and it was very tough the first couple of weeks. My body was sore and my muscles were really stiff. Dean knew he had to start slow and build up as I got fitter and stronger. Always supporting and encouraging me to do my best. The eating worked well. I ate 5 times a day. It was more than enough food per meal - I never felt I was on a diet. Thank you Dean and Crystal for assisting me in preparing for the race. You made a huge difference in my life. “

    “When I started this journey about 3 months ago, I never imagined that I would see such amazing results! Dean, you’re a toughie, and I would never be able to do it without you pushing me just a little more every time, and not allowing me to give up! Thank you for the encouragement on the tough days, and the support right through the process. Dean and Crystal, you guys make a mean team! “
