Is your life a whirlwind at the moment

By Brenda Rogers / 27 Apr 2014

What fabulous things can you do to support yourself while you’re going through pesky change?  How can you thrive through adversity? Recently, I found out that a tenant I had in an investment property was moving out (in a market that had dropped significantly) and, on the same day, that the house we are renting … Read more

Could it be your thyroid?

By Brenda Rogers / 05 Sep 2013

A new client came to me yesterday. She’d been diagnosed at 16 with an under active thyroid and she’d been on Thyroxine ever since.  She’s now 40, obese and miserable.  Many people believe their weight problem is caused by their thyroid being under active, but is it really? My experience tells me an under active … Read more

The point of feeling yuk!

By Brenda Rogers / 15 Aug 2013

Today I was coaching a client who wants to lose weight so she can fall pregnant.  She has polycystic ovarian syndrome.  This is a condition caused by poor blood sugar control and insulin resistance which is caused largely by a poor diet.  Just eliminating soft drinks helped this young woman to lose 2 kilos! But, … Read more

Are you wondering if stress is contributing to your weight problem?

By Brenda Rogers / 08 Aug 2013

When you hear the word stress what do you think about?  Does your never ending “To Do” list come to mind?  Or time pressure, personality conflicts at work, a demanding boss or traffic?

The War Against Butter!

By Brenda Rogers / 03 Apr 2013

Should we eat butter or should we eat margarine?  The answer reveals so much about what’s going on in the area of food and nutrition right now. My own bias, as someone who trusts nature, is that butter is the way to go.  In fact in our household margarine is not welcome! However, many people … Read more

Is a diet of kindness the answer?

By Brenda Rogers / 04 Nov 2012

Sometimes, we overeat or eat the “wrong” foods to punish ourselves.  Sometimes the voice in our head is very unkind and says all manner of things that are hurtful – things like “I’m not good enough”, “I’m useless”, or “I’m not loveable”. These are in fact lies. But we believe it. These unkind forms of … Read more

Ending the War with Food

By Brenda Rogers / 04 Oct 2012

Today I am sharing an article from one of my favourite authors on emotional eating: Geneen Roth. I hope it gives you inspiration. Imagine this: You are walking in a meadow on a fresh autumn day. The leaves are turning a burnished gold and red. You come upon a long table covered in a white … Read more
