Tuesday morning early HIIT boxing training session

Tuesday morning early HIIT boxing training session.

Love boxing for having to be mindful, be in the moment and focus.  Also brilliant for cardio, toning, upper body, arms, waist, glutes and legs
And also the brain for remembering the sequences. HIIT is the best way for helping increase your metabolism for most efficient  weightloss (of course together with how you moderate your eating).
You dont have to be young to start a new sporting activity. #nevertoolate. I'm 63.

A regime morning @grayshottspa

A regime morning @grayshottspa . 
Breaking the 5:2 fast with breakfast of spiced cured salmon with avocado and butter bean houmous ( no coffee)! Yummy and super healthy with omega 3 and good fats.

A swim in the indoor pool, a plunge in the very cold but invigorating icy plunge pool after a steam room. All fitted in befire a 16 minute  hydrotherapy bath with Epsom salts which are great for magnesium, detoxification and relaxation.

Lunch is a buternut, chilli and lime soup followed by cold salmon with green baby pea shoots, a walnut dip and a designer swoosh of pureed beetroot. Accompanied with a rainbow mix of vegetables for vits ACE and zinc with their health giving benefits as antioxidants.

Of course digestive bitters and sauerkraut to start to get those digestive juices working for good gut health and a few soaked mixed nuts (and some olives) for their good fats.

So as you can see a Grayshott regime is by no means a starvation diet and there is still a 2 course dinner later after a pilates class.

No grains, no sugar, no milk, 
but simply protein, healthy fats,  vegetables,, fibre, nuts and fermented foods all helping the body to become its optimum best with a healthy functioning gut.

Fast day today

Fast day today.

This doesnt mean starvation however as it's all about leaving a space of time between last meal and next and also reducing the amount of food in a day as in 5:2 diet.

This is bone broth boiled for over 12 hours with chopped carrots, parsley and courgettes.

Lunch today is in the following post.

Lunchtime Pulled pork shoulder(with Moroccan style spices) with green pea dip, blanched vegetables and soaked nuts (blanching and soaking makes them less indigestable than raw)
