I Trust Him
Ah, what can I say about 'darling Rich'.......He lights up my Tuesday evenings, and my Saturday mornings!
It's only half hour - 40 mins, and goes by like a flash. After a session with Rich I feel like my batteries have been charged...
He's such a nice guy, gives me advice, guidance and plenty of encouragement. His daily e mails are informative and fun. I have learned about nutrition and fitness. He has a wealth of knowledge.
What I particularly like is that I feel comfortable in his gym...and I trust him. He has helped me reach my goals.
Following Motorcycle Accident
Following a motorcycle accident, Richard Clarke sped up my recovery by taking me through a rehabilitation programme. Impressed with his professionalism and knowledge, I then took part in several 3 month fitness programmes...looking back, one of the biggest benefits was how Richard analysed my diet and changed it for the good...this knowledge is priceless. Thanks Richard.
She Had Lost Her Way
I had lost my way training wise after the death of my beloved older brother and was struggling with stress and anxiety. I joined one of Richards groups and...I haven’t looked back since. I feel fitter and happier than I have in a long time and I’ve also lost inches and pounds.
What I really love about Rich is he says it like it is and he cares for his clients. I can be a bit “gung ho” when it comes to training and Rich reins that in to make sure I stay fit and uninjured. Richard has changed my life for the better and that’s no exaggeration.
Richard Helped In So Many Ways
Richard helped me in so many ways, even though I had many ailments, he helped me to believe in myself, weight loss, his recipes are delicious, didn't feel like I was on a diet, just healthy eating, but most of all Richard is very inspiring and often if I was having a bad day you could guarantee I would walk out of the gym smiling. Thank you Richard x
Fantastic…I'm inspired as with all your emails
Taking Less Medication
Started with Rich around 10 weeks ago, during that time and by following his advice I have lost over 3 stone(42lbs)!! Having had arthritis for very many years which resulted in a double knee replacement and taking a ridiculous amount of tablets daily for this condition I am now taking a fraction of the amount prescribed by my G.P. My G.P. can’t get over the change and is very impressed. I would certainly recommend Richard to anyone.
Motivational, inspirational, encouraging, knowledgeable, caring, fun loving, thought provoking are just a few of the words I would use to describe the huge personality that is Richard Clarke. If you decide to follow his advice you just can't go wrong. Cynthia Davies
Not Confident After Knee Injury
You helped me a great deal after my knee injury as I was not confident in doing any exercise incase I aggravated the injury. The exercise plan you did for me was great, very simple but effective. You were also very encouraging and very good at motivating me. Thanks
Had Many A Chuckle
I have had many a chuckle at some of your comments and stories but also appreciate the underlining message…I love your shot from the hip approach it's refreshing. Keep up the good work :0)
The Greatest Bit Is Me
Having been quite seriously ill and knowing a few of the girls who have been supported by Rich, it has taken my nearly two years to join his program. (Due to ill health)
I am just coming up to my first twelve weeks, have lost weight, changed body shape but the greatest bit is me! How I feel and my mindset. Having been in a wheelchair back in October. I am back to my old self ...and have never felt happier than I do at the minute. My sessions with Richard are ...my treatment to save my life whilst having fun, through hard work with the great support from Richard covering what to eat, how to exercise tailored specifically to me. He even listens when I am I want to let off steam! What more could you ask for...
39 Spoons Of Sugar
I got a lot to tell you today.
First up, there is this week’s podcast.
It’s all about lower back pain, shift work, stretching, acne, allergies and much more.
Also thanks for the feedback last week, I’m so touched by peoples kindness.
Speaking of kindness, check out this cool video that’s in the PS at the bottom (it’s made one woman I showed cry)
Finally, as usual, I have a little story for ya…
I went to the beefeater in SA1 a couple of weeks ago.
It was my niece’s 6th birthday party, everyone was there.
We were all placing our orders and I noticed that on the menu there was the option for bottomless drinks and unlimited chips.
Now I have worked in America in my younger days and I knew exactly what this is, in case you don’t already know it basically means “all you can eat and drink” of the fizzy drinks and chips.
Let me tell you now that my family ordered THREE extra bowls of spicy fries and someone at the table had THREE pints of coke.
Three pints of coke, that’s 39 spoons of sugar btw.
(could you eat 39 tea spoons of sugar?)
Let me make a couple of things clear
You may want to write this stuff down…
One of the main reasons people put on weight is basically
1. When you drink 1.5litres of coke (or consume ANY large meal for that matter) you will have a MASSIVE rise in blood sugar and subsequently a MASSIVE release of insulin.
2. Insulin is a massive FAT STORAGE hormone.
You can try eating more proteins and fats as they don’t elevate blood sugar as much and therefore you don’t have such a big release of insulin (and subsequent fat storage). Also don’t drink the liquid sugar (coke and alike), just have some soda water and lime or something.
But ultimately it’s down to PORTION SIZE, just EAT LESS carbohydrates and sugar, that includes fruit too.
In case you hadn’t realised it, we have been slowly “americanised” we are following all the same trends with our culture, eating and drinking.
To be perfectly honest I think it’s a bad move.
Also, there are a lot of these “man v food” challenges in restaurants these days too. And I even saw a meal which was named “the fat bastard”.
People don’t give a shit, even with a name like that.
People don’t need any encouragement to eat any more than they already do.
