Do you find yourself eating clean 80% of the time and training 3-4 session per week, but you want to drop a little more % body fat? You might just need to make a few tweaks like these:

– TRAIN HARD: Up the intensity of your exercise regime and challenge your body in new ways. Living Beauty clients receive a new exercise plan every 4-6 weeks.

– WATER FIRST: whenever you want to eat surplus calories (i.e. through boredom not actual hunger) ask your self how you are going with your daily water quota? (e.g. mine is 3.5 litres). Drink water or caffeine free herbal tea first, which usually solves this as you are satisfied and no longer want to eat.
– WALK: On top of your normal exercise routine (which should include weights or body weight exercise) – be active for example walk to the local shops, or to a local cafe – your body was born to move!
– MORE VEGETABLES: If you are constantly physically hungry make sure at least 3 meals in your day include 2-3 metric cups of fresh vegetables and mainly greens such as kale, spinach, lettuce, cucumber, broccoli, snow peas, zucchini, just to name a few.

Prepare your vegetables in advance as I have done below, this is a great time saver. So instead of rushing around at night when I am most tired, I can simply grab handfuls of my veggies and throw them into a recipe.

Living Beauty Berry Choc Mousse &
Choc Raspberry coconut slice

nov 22

1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1 x 30g scoop of chocolate protein powder
1/4 cup water

Place berries into blender to chop. Add protein powder with a tiny bit of water to mix, I then add my whipping attachment to by Thermomix (or blender) get a creamy texture. Add more water if necessary.
Pour into a small bowl.
Finish with 2 tbsp slightly warmed peanut butter (100% pure) and spread on top.
**May substitute with hazelnut spread or Tahini
Finally add 2 tbsp shredded or dessicated coconut.
Place into freezer for 20 minutes to set.

Raspberry Coconut Slice


1/2 c Coconut oil
1 tbsp granulated Stevia
2-3 tbsp raw cacao powder
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
3 tbsp shredded coconut or coconut chips (unsweetened)


Spread out berries onto a small baking tray lined with baking paper.
Heat all other ingredients in a saucepan and pour chocolate over the raspberries.
Add coconut (shredded or chips)
Place tray into freezer for 20 minutes until set and then break up the chocolate.

Serves about 8 people for the slice and one person for the mousse!
**When using a protein powder please take a moment to look up the ingredients and educate yourself about what those ingredient names actually mean.

**I like to be educated on my products and what I am putting into my body. I avoid: Gluten, too much WPC and Casein (I am lactose intolerant), Glucose, Fructose, Artificial and some natural sweeteners, thickeners, gums, milk powders. Remember this is what suits me and everyone is different.

I always ask heaps of questions and love to learn about where my food comes from.
I can always learn more and my health journey will last a lifetime. I refer you to a great reference book I use: The Chemical Maze by Bill Statham.
