My Hormonal Acne “Story”

Posted by on Jul 18, 2017

Today’s post is about my recent venture with one very popular acne treatment: Accutane. This is a sensitive topic for me because it touches upon my BIGGEST insecurity, but it’s something I have wanted to share for a while. Now, before you all stop reading here because you’re shocked that someone as health conscious as me would use such a strong and potentially dangerous pharmaceutical, read on.

The Reason Behind My Recent Healthy Living Inspiration

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017

Today’s blog post is a little bit more of a personal topic, more specifically about my personal health. Perhaps you’re wondering why should I care? Well you don’t, but if you’re interested  in knowing why I’ve found a new source of fuel igniting my passion for health and fitness (re: my fitness instas and more frequent posts), read on. This post also does in fact relate to my recent advocation for a high-fat, high-protein and low-carb “diet” -hence the bulletproof coffee, and why I believe it to be one of the best ways to eat. I will touch upon this in greater detail in later posts, but this background story is required. Keep in mind that when I say “diet” I’m not talking about a temporary way of eating but rather a lifestyle choice or an alternate way of maintaining healthy eating habits. I was recently diagnosed

Eating and Your Environment (a little food for thought)

Posted by on Oct 21, 2016

It’s evident that our environment plays a key role in our eating habits whether we realize it or not. At home, you eat what’s served for dinner. When you go out you choose what you want to eat at the restaurant. Well what about at school?

Having recently started university in the fall and being the health conscious eater that I am, this posed somewhat of a challenge. Not only did I have to adjust to my new environment but I also had to alter my eating habits of course. With this came various concerns, the main one being the dreadful “freshman fifteen”. In case you’re unfamiliar with this term, it is used to describe the weight gained by first year students when they move into residence at university. Many of my peers were equally as concerned with this idea. I quickly realized however, that although your environment can change, you’re eating habits don’t have to.

You’re healthy habits are completely in your control and can follow you anywhere you go. Yes, it is true that not everything you once had available to you will remain the same but this is where flexibility comes in. Humans are very adaptable beings and in the grand scheme of things, I’ve realized that adapting to a university environment, although difficult is not as daunting as it may seem. By keeping your healthy habits in check, the transition is even easier as this is one aspect of your life that can remain the same. Maintaining this consistent aspect of your life is exciting and reassuring. It leaves you more time to focus on your studies and the social aspects of university.  

Think about it!
