Eat well

  • Writing your own Paleo code

    By Keith Porter on February 9, 2015
    Hands up if this sounds like you: You start a new training regime or diet, go gung-ho into it and then gradually lose your enthusiasm until you’re back to where you started. Anyone? Ah, yes. Most of you. Me too, back in the day. And yet, we all keep doing it, despite the fact that we’ve all been down this […]

  • No diets, just back to normal

    By Keith Porter on January 6, 2015
    My friend Ilse explained something great on Facebook earlier this month. After a few indulgences at Christmas, she wasn’t going to start some new diet as part of a New Year’s Resolution – she was just going to go back to normal. Now, normal for Ilse is not normal for most people. We’ve both been following a Real Food diet […]

  • The Best of Live Simple 2014

    By Keith Porter on December 15, 2014
    There are two blog posts that I’ve been looking forward to writing for the last few weeks. The second one is my annual review. That blog gives me a chance to reflect on the year gone by, the ups and downs, the breakthroughs, the transitions and the beautiful moments. But the first one is this one. The Best of Live […]

  • My top tip to find your path to better health

    By Keith Porter on November 26, 2014
    I picked up a copy of the Daily Mail a few weeks ago when I was sitting in my parents’ conservatory. I know, I know. You’re disappointed in me. But I couldn’t help myself, as there was apparently a lot about ‘health’ in there that was daring me to pick it up and read it. So I did. I read […]

  • Should you try a one month coffee fast?

    By Keith Porter on November 4, 2014
    Up until about two years ago, I’d never drunk coffee. I didn’t like the taste, never needed a caffeine buzz, and always preferred tea. After I started following the Primal diet, I began reading ideas from a lot of different people connected to Paleo. The more I read, the more it seemed that coffee was the coolest thing possible to drink. […]

  • Paleo Sultana Cinnamon Flatbread

    By Angela Porter on April 25, 2014
    The question we almost always get asked by people contemplating a paleo approach to food is ‘how on earth do you live without bread?’.  The answer?  It’s pretty tricky, if you need to buy food on the go, ever.  The grab and go sections of convenience food stores and coffee shops are so jam packed with sandwiches, rolls, paninis, baguettes […]

  • You don’t have to be perfect

    By Keith Porter on March 14, 2014
    I’m addicted to cream teas. Okay, maybe I’m not addicted to cream teas, but I really do like them a lot. So much so that Angie’s one and only baking task at the moment is to come up with some kind of cream tea primal variation that we can stuff our chops with of a weekend. The future of our […]

  • My take on the BBC’s ‘Horizon – Sugar v Fat’

    By Keith Porter on February 9, 2014
    One thing that’s cool about being known as ‘the health guy’ among your friends and colleagues is that they keep you updated with things on the topic of fitness and nutrition that appear in the public eye.

  • The humble and snack-tastic Simple Seed Bar

    By Angela Porter on December 15, 2013
    One of the greatest advantages of eating a real food diet is that you need to rely far less on snacks to get you through between meals.  Without insulin-spiking grains and refined sugar, I have found that I don’t struggle with the ups and downs and energy crashes like I used to, and can often go from sweet eggs for […]

  • My complete guide to bonking

    By Keith Porter on November 21, 2013
    I never thought I’d write that as a subject heading for a blog. It might seem that this blog has taken a rather more saucy turn, or that I’ve decided to share the secrets behind my years of being a university lothario (drink lots, keep fingers crossed, apologise). Alas, this is incorrect. We’re still talking low-carb, Primal and Paleo, I’m […]
