Pros and Cons of Exogenous Ketones

The Pros and Cons of Exogenous Ketones

Ketones are a hot topic in the fitness and nutrition world right now. They’re a bi-product of fat that’s an alternative fuel source to sugars that’s used by your body when you consume a low carb, high fat diet. Research has shown there’s a number of great benefits of being in ketosis. But, because people (myself and probably you, included), like to get more from doing less, scientists have developed a way to supplement with exogenous ketones. The idea is that you can get the same benefits of eating a low carb, high fat diet without changing your diet. But, [...]

The Biggest Loser and Body Confidence

Well, its that time of year again. #TheBiggestLoser is back, and you're either at home eating ice cream and cake while watching it, or you're googling Personal Trainers near me. A lot of controversial shit is about to be thrown into your face as the gospel. Not because its true, but because its on TV, so it must be true. First off I need to say - If you're partner hasn't seen you naked - this is NOT a body fat issue - this is a self talk issue. What are you saying to yourself - to make you believe that 'the one [...]

Nutrition and Good Diet

Much like an effective Personal Trainer or Health Coach. We need to really examine your life, your habits, your needs and wants. We can't stick you on a diet of rabbit food, when your lifestyle revolves around good food and great friends. A good diet is both flexible, sustainable and purposeful. Allowing you to enjoy the good days that are numbered on this earth. A good diet works from the inside out, cleaning your skin, strengthening your hair, your nails, whitening your eyes, and leaving full of energy and clarity. There are hundreds of diets, and not any one diet [...]

Personal Training in Brisbane

Many people think by hiring a PT they will automatically lose weight and get fit. To a degree you will see some initial results, quickly followed by a plateau and (even worse) a possible rebound. Personal training like anything is a relationship built on trust, transparency and unity. There is no point in your trainer telling you to exercise 6 times a week & live off chicken and broccoli, if you hate chicken and are lucky to fit in 1-2 training session. A good PT will constantly work with you and your needs, keeping you motivated and focused on the [...]
Remedial Massage with Daniel Lyttle

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is unfortunately an over used term in today's world, to describe an oil rub of your body. But really - it should be a treatment to rival any Chiropractic or Physiotherapist treatment you could find. The body is a complex organism dynamically responding and evolving to external and internal stimulus. To the untrained eye, the body can be a complex system of foreign names and movements - but really it's just made up of thousands and thousands of pretty simple functions, all happening together like a well managed business or community. In an over worked, over stressed, under [...]

The Lyttle Difference is officially in their 10th year as a Queensland small business.

Experts say, that 80% of business' fail in their first year! Of all small businesses' 90% fail in first 5 years. Of the 10% left a further 90% fail in years 6-10.

How to be a Healthier Vegan or Vegetarian

As a Health and Fitness professional, I am regularly asked what is the best diet for weight loss/ Optimal Health: What do I think about the CrossFit diet – Paleo, or the 5-2 Diet, Atkins Diet and so on. They all have a purpose, They all have their pro’s and con’s, and depending on your needs, and strengths they can all be wonderful.   But from time to time, people will follow a diet for Religious or Humanitarian reasons. Again, nothing wrong with this, I respect your choice … BUT please be educated before making any radical adjustments to your […]

Are they really the biggest loser?

Do you watch the Biggest Loser? As a passionate PT who loves to see success stories, I love to watch as these depressed people attack their issues of food abuse and self abandonment. Also watching and learning from the coaches, what to do, and unfortunately, a lot of tips on what not to do.   The best advice I can give you, assuming your are somewhat lost/uneducated about what to do or how to do it - Enjoy the show for the motivation it provides. Ignore the facts, and 'educational' aspect of the show.   What these morbidly obese people [...]
