Debating doing the 8-Week Program? Here’s how it’s helped others

Posted on January 19th, 2015

I get asked regularly about the benefits of quitting sugar. Personally, quitting sugar has helped me a tremendous amount with my autoimmune disease. While a lot of you ask regularly about the weight loss component – sugar does help you shift weight if you need to (I lost weight I’d put on as a result of my disease) – what I really love is that by the end of the 8-Week Program people are commenting more about their energy levels, consistent moods and their glowing skin.

Wondering if the 8-Week Program will work for you? Why not check out some of the testimonies below.

Peta + Damien: “Our moods are overall better on a daily basis – which has seen us argue less! People randomly ask me if I’ve done  something new to my skin. And my body fat score has dropped from 24-19 with no adjustment to my 4-5 times a week gym routine.”

Dionne: “I have been suffering for years with IBS (first of which I thought was a gluten/wheat intolerance) and over the past eight weeks, my body has never felt better.

my simple home: five ways to feng shui your joint in five minutes

Posted on June 13th, 2013

If you’ve been following the My Simple Home series, you’ll know I’m on a mission to create the cleanest, most eco, minimal home possible and sharing each step, figuring you might like to learn from the process, too. I’ve shared on hazards you should avoid and how to detox your kitchen, and you can catch up on the full series here. I should add: it’s a very slow process. I’ve been so busy that, well, I haven’t even bought a couch yet. I know, I know…I’m sure many of you have much to say on this (um, commitment issues?). My friends certainly do.

But I digress.

This post I’ve got building biologist and feng shui expert Nicole Bijlsma sharing her top five tips for getting the energy in my place sorted. It’s a snappy three minute video, if you’ve got the time. Otherwise, I’ve shared the highlights below.

1. Get rid of clutter.

Clutter represents the past. Hanging on to stuff? You’re hanging on to old stuff. Figuratively and literally.

2. Watch for the highs and lows.

Hidden clutter under the bed has an impact on you as you sleep. It stores in your body, and can make you sluggish. And clutter up high suggests the feeling of having things rain down on you. Remove the highs and lows.

3. Sit with a solid wall behind you.

Furniture placement is important. In a room where you spend lots of time – sitting at a work desk, or on a couch – make Read more
