Which Diet Type Is Right For You?

I usually get asked quite often about whether various diet types and eating patterns - like keto, paleo and intermittent fasting - ACTUALLY work to help you achieve your weight loss/fat loss goals.

The short answer? It depends.

Some (not all!) of these diet types can work, but they don’t necessarily work for everyone. To be honest, it all boils down to your lifestyle and whether this way of eating can be sustainable in the long-term. (Because we all know that the “quick fixes” never truly last.)

And while I know that many of them are backed by scientific research and can give you some sort of “structure” to follow, there’s truly SO MUCH INFORMATION OUT THERE that it’s difficult (& frankly, pretty overwhelming!) to have to trudge through all of the journals, articles and research papers in order to figure out which one actually works for you.

Q & A with aspiring Olympic sailor, Sarah Douglas

Although summer may seem miles away, I thought I would get you a little excited about those hot days by introducing you to sailing. Now I am not talking about the captain’s hat and booze cruising sailing, I am talking about the physically demanding, mentally challenging, Olympic class sailing.

Sailing seems to have been in my life for as long as I can remember. My dad is a sailor, and a pretty great one at that.  I am pretty thankful that he chucked me in a boat at a young age, and although I may have lost my favourite pink flamingo hat one my first outing, I soon fell in love with it and it has become part of my identity.  

The sailing community in Canada is so close knit, and I was lucky enough to cross paths with Sarah Douglas a few years back when I was working in Toronto as the head coach at a sailing club there. At the time she was on the Ontario Sailing Team and I have been so excited to see her progress and be a total inspiration to young sailors across the country.

I was able to steal some time in her very busy schedule to get some questions in, and I hope you enjoy virtually meeting Sarah!
