Thin Fit Episode 66: Accepting That All Good Things Take Time

We are all different. We have different bodies, metabolism, talents, jobs, families, backgrounds and preferences of peanut butter. What takes 2 weeks for one person might take 2 years for another. That doesn't mean that either person is any better or worse than anyone else. This week we discuss how important it is to accept that your weight loss journey will take exactly as long as it will take. Not as long as it took Tim, or as long as it took that guy from Subway that turned out to be a...

What is it about keeping the weight off that is so hard? This leads us to our topic for...

Think Fit Episode 57: A Guide to Stop Comparing Yourself to Others

Let's be honest, we all do it. We all compare who we are, what we do, what we have or how we look to other people. It is a slippery slope that achieves nothing.

Think Fit Episode 51: Let's Talk About F#@D!

This week we delve into one of the internet's most controversial and to be honest, boring topics. Food. The 4 letter F word that we are too afraid to speak about.

Think Fit Episode 49: Performance V Weight Loss Training

Many people take up a sport because they want to lose weight. The problem is that they also often want to get results, PBs or go fast. The bad news is that the training to lose weight and training for performance are very different. We aren't saying you won't lose weight if you are training for performance just like you won't get better if you are training to lose weight. The problem is if you do not take the time to do them both properly there is a good chance you will lose motivation and...

Think Fit Episode 47: Take The Pressure Down! Overcoming Unhealthy Peer Pressure

Have you ever had the best intentions to eat well, go to the gym or go to bed early only to be peer pressured into doing something else instead? Chances are the answer is yes.

This made us realise that we have both dealt with peer pressure after getting healthy. Have another drink, come out for...
