I absolutely love food and, for me, travelling provides the opportunity to explore new flavours, even if I tend to eat a little more than what I need. When I was younger I used to try and make up for my summer indulgences by going on a fall fitness craze. Over time, I realised that this is only a short-term fix. 80% of the way we look and feel is down to our diet and lifestyle. 20% is exercise. This is hard to hear, especially if you're training your butt off and believe me, it's not the best motto for my business as a Pilates teacher … but it's true. The idea that you’ll “just burn it off at the gym” might be a post-summer quick fix but sooner or later you’ll have to address the reasons why your body is holding onto unwanted weight. And that starts with reviewing your diet and your lifestyle. What you eat most of the time is more important than what you eat some of the time. Overindulging a little during the summer – that extra glass (or two!) of rosé – is perfectly normal, as long as you get back to your routine when you return home. This is difficult because our bodies keep nudging us for any of the bad habits we might have picked up on holiday. Sugar is addictive as is alcohol (also sugar) so as long as we keep consuming them, our bodies will keep asking for them. This is why my back-to-reality strategy is always to cut out the crap completely by going on a detox. This is the only way to get rid of all the toxins that have hijacked my taste buds and make me crave sugar, and to kickstart my hankering for healthy food again. And this is why I want to share what a good detox should look like if you want to clean out your system, kick your cravings in the teeth and fire up your metabolism so it starts burning fat again.

Mine involve eating REAL FOODS that have been chosen specifically for their antioxidant power, their ability to reduce inflammation, boost your energy levels and start burning fat. My favorite place to buy organic produce is at the Condamine market, specifically the few small producers under the arcades. Their fruits and vegetables have noticeably more flavour than anything you’ll find in the supermarket. Anything I can’t find at the market, I duck down to the organic supermarket. Solis Bio (7 & 9 rue Terrazzani) has a good range of produce (especially mid-morning), and this is also where I buy my coconut oil, nuts, seeds and other fun things like Tempeh and the occasional Kombucha. I visited the new To Be organic shop at 31 ave Princesse Grace, but more on that next time.
