So – I did my stand up last night.


Went ok – feedback was good, but can’t say I’m planning on giving up the day job πŸ˜‰


I’ll show you a video of it later.


But while I was there I managed a bonus goal.


One of my other things to do this year was to sit for a portrait.


No particular reason – someone had suggested it and I thought it might be fun.


Unexpedtedly at the Snow Goose last night was also a portrait group, doing each other’s portraits as practice.


So they did mine too.


Got one particularly good one done too – I’ll link that later as well.




Killing two birds with one stone is something we recommend to members.


We don’t want to give people more and more stuff to try and fit into their already busy lives.


We’re all about the big and relatively easy wins.


Rather than a long list of ‘stuff you should be doing’ which just makes you feel shit.


Breakfast is a big win.


For some reason our government, the NHS and lots of supposed experts still recommend a super carb heavy breakfast.


You know – cereals, porridge, juice, toast, etc.


Despite the fact that we successfully evolved for millions of years on a balanced diet.


Carbs and healthy fats and protein.


And despite the fact that since they changed their nutritional guidelines to this approach in 1977 our waistlines have sky rocketed and our health has plummeted.


But we fully appreciate the type of breakfast we recommend does take more time and effort than a bowl of cereal does.


If that time and effort is left till breakfast time that is.


By far the easiest way to have a healthy breakfast that will really set you up for the day and will give you a good, fat releasing hormone balance is to make more of an evening meal and have the remainder for breakfast the next day.


Or tupperware it up, pop it in the fridge or freezer and have it at some later point.


It’s even less effort than a bowl of cereal then.


2 birds.


1 stone.


Work smarter – not harder πŸ™‚


It sounds weird having a main meal for breakfast.


But it’s just an adjustment.


There’s no physiological reason not to have that sort of food for breakfast.


And there’s a very good argument against the mega high carb breakfast.


The elevated insulin levels.


And the weight gain and healthy issues it causes.


Remember, main meal type breakfasts took us from monkeys to space travel.


The super high carb breakfast has taken us to record obesity levels.


Give it a go – you won’t regret it πŸ™‚


Any questions – let us know.


Much love,


Jon ‘Pork loin steaks, veg and almonds for breakfast today’ Hall and Matt ‘Eggs, Salmon and some fruit’ Nicholson.


P.S. You can see a video of my stand up here. And the portraits I had done here.


P.P.S. I told you I wouldn’t be giving up the day job any time soon πŸ˜‰
