The about nutrition clinic is open for new appointments and I am looking forward to helping you achieve your goals for 2010.
Why not make February Fabulous (FabFeb) by joining FebFast?
One great way to kick start your year is to give up alcohol for a month and give your body a chance to recover from any overindulgence over the festive season. You will find that your energy levels increase and it will be easier to get out of bed in the morning. On top of these benefits it is one of the best ways to decrease your calorie intake without compromising at all on the food you enjoy and your nutrient intake. Plus you save money!
FebFast is a fundraising programme that asks participants to give up alcohol for the month of February. The program raises money for worthwhile charities. This year’s proceeds from registration payments and fundraising go towards the Australian Drug Foundation, Mater Health Services – Adolescent Drug and Alcohol Withdrawal Service (Qld), Ted Noffs Foundation (NSW & ACT), Youth Substance Abuse Service (Vic) and FebFast’s grants program for smaller grass-roots organisations.
I have joined FebFast and set up an about nutrition team to encourage you to join. Registration fees are tax deductible and as an added BONUS any new client booking in for a nutrition consultation in the month of February will have the registration fee deducted from their first consultation.
By joining FebFast you also get a great excuse to tell others why you are not drinking for the month. So why not join me and feel great.
p.s. Don’t let a special engagement such as Valentines Day stop you from taking on the challenge as you can purchase a timeout for the day.
Still need a drink to accompany your meals? Why not try a refreshing alcohol free Mohito.
