The Maintenance Program

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 2 Comments

This is probably the hardest part of any diet or fitness program. When you lose the focused, determined mindset and get back to regular living. I, of course, made it particularly hard for myself by going on holiday the minute I finished bootcamp. This meant that as well as all of the food and drink temptation, I also didn’t work …

Goodbye Bootcamp

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 2 Comments

  I’m going to be honest, I only started all this so that I could fit into my favourite trousers again and so that I’d look half decent in my summer gear! Then of course, I got Fleur and Rhys involved and oh boy did they take it seriously. Before I knew what hit me, they took away all my …

Manolo Camp

Boots schmoots! I feel firmly in the skinny pants, skimpy T shirt, skirt with heels camp! What bliss to have my clothes fit again. I do feel I’ve really earned it after being so disciplined and my only concern now is keeping it this way. Two weeks to go but will definitely be asking both Fleur and Rhys for a …

Bootcamp Booty

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 3 Comments

  I’ve always prided myself on being very active and doing loads of exercise which, as you know and are probably sick of hearing me say, I insist is the closest thing to an anti-ageing pill. The horrible truth however, is that I may have been completely wasting my time in the gym! I may go and do weights twice …

Bootcamp Begins

I may not be in some retreat somewhere with a hard bed and no pillow, or hiking up the mountains at 6am every morning, or being forced to eat stale bread where each mouthful has to be chewed a hundred times, but…….I definitely feel like I’m in bootcamp! And to think I’ve done this to myself! And because I’ve announced …

Yup I know…..I go on about yoga and exercise, did a whole series of articles on “The diet that changed my life”, am such a goody two shoes blah blah blah….so how come the top part of my legs are going south and suddenly I’m a little, well, podgier? Mmmmm? Ok, it was a long hard winter and I’ve spent …

The Versatility of Coconut

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 1 Comment

This summer drinking coconut water became the thing to do. It was everywhere, in gyms, supermarkets, health food stores, train stations, even corner shops. It was one helluva take over. I myself, was swigging it non stop in the 3 months I was doing Stepping Out (a dance show) which was very thirsty business. It’s more hydrating than water we …

The Truth (and lies) Behind Food labels

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 0 Comments

Food companies are out to trick us, manipulate us and get us to buy their products no matter what. Some people just look at the general packaging, make a snap judgement and throw the item into their trolley. Others, attempting to eat healthily, look at the ingredients before doing so. But what to make of these often very long lists of …

The Diet that Changed My Life – Part 7

Glynis Barber Diet & Nutrition 3 Comments

 Fleur – The Journey Towards Good Health and Fitness So by now you are probably realising that all this putting on weight business is a completely normal reaction to our environment.  We are designed to eat plenty when food is around to build up reserves for when food is scarce.  The problem now is food certainly isn’t scarce and while …
