BE REALISTIC – Everyday Situations & Healthy Living

I’m very excited to announce my new, upcoming series BE REALISTIC.

It’s gonna be the most in-depth and realistic look at how to live a normal life, whether you’re on a diet or just trying to eat better, and I’m not talking about the standard “Eat plenty of fruit and veg & stay away from fatty junk foods” advice, oh no! There’s hundreds of diets out there that do nothing but bang on about what you can and can’t do; I think I’ll leave that to them.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s a time and a place for that advice (like once, at the beginning!), but one area none of them help with is the real life situations that happen to us each and every day; situations that make it difficult, if not near on impossible to diet & eat healthy.

We’re surrounded by them, the birthdays, weddings, christenings, family gatherings, unplanned lunches, working late & grabbing takeaway, clubbing, being ill, being stressed etc. etc.

The list is epic, and 99% of them are inevitable to happen to each, and every one of us; how we deal with these situations is the difference between success and failure.


If you’re anything like me, and your sick and tired of being told “Eat a salad”; hell, what happens if there isn’t a salad available huh, what do ya eat then? Thin air!

That’s where BE REALISTIC comes in to give the information I think we all need to know to make the best possible decision for the situation we’re in; be it at a buffet table, a new restaurant, a family BBQ or even McDonalds, an airport lounge, whatever. What’s the best you can eat right there and then; it maybe a choice between “two evils” but which is the better of the two…that’s the real question.

Keep an eye out for the first installment coming in the next couple of weeks!
