Last post, our Nutritionist Amy McKendrick, talked about four types of food that aren't good for us and what we can replace them with. The list continues...5. AVOID - Sugary processed cereals. These foods should never have been created. It is not a great way to start your day with cardboard disguised as food. They are ladened with refined sugars, flavours and gluten (protein in wheat, rye, oats and barley). Gluten is highly indigestible and can wreak havoc in the digestive tract and cause inflammation. The high sugar content is also extremely high glycemic, which causes spikes in insulin causing fluctuations in energy levels.
One thing we all realise is that we need food for survival. The thing is however, is that everything that we put into our bodies can either have a negative impact on our health or a positive impact. Food truly is medicine, so upon discussing this with our Nutritionist Amy McKendrick, Amy mentions that when she eats something, she always considers "is this going to nourish my body or cause it stress?".

Protein shakes, protein balls, protein powder, protein supplements.. seems the world has gone a bit mad when it comes to protein. But why? Whilst we don't necessarily advocate the above products, the fact is that protein is one of the most essential nutrients. It contributes very heavily in key body functions such as the production of hormones and enzymes, immune responses and cell repair, and nobody consumes enough of it! Protein is the essential building block in blood, skin, cartilage, bone and muscles. It is a macronutrient, which means the body needs large amounts of it and since the body does not store protein, it is important to be consuming it in our diet every day.
Nothing beats that first glass of cold water in the morning (well, maybe coffee), or a dip in the ocean. Water is what rehydrates us after exercise, after a couple of glasses of wine and on a hot summers day. We all know that we should drink more water and apart from the obvious rehydration, the question is WHAT is so special about water? Amy McKendrick our Nutritionist shares her expertise:
At Body Catalyst we are committed to helping our clients achieve their body goals. Which is why we are thrilled to see Lisa Patulny from Byrdie share her experience and great results after receiving one of our cryolipolysis treatments. Read more about Cryo here
After falling and injuring myself on my hip area and sustaining lumpiness for many years, I thought I would give cavitation a go, since working out didn’t help. I completed 8 sessions of cavitation and one session cryolipolysis on both hips. Samantha documented my journey each week by taking my measurements and pictures to see the progress. The results were fantastic, and could not be happier! Both hips reduced in size, and I feel a lot more confident in my clothing, without having to worry about one hip being bigger than the other. Samantha is an absolute delight, and highly professional. I would recommend a visit to Body Catalyst for anyone seeking non-surgical body improvements/maintenance. I will definitely be back.
Cryolipolysis is the safe and gentle non-surgical liposuction. It is a controlled cooling technique that kills 20-30% of fat cells in treated areas
A fantastic experience, Tatiana was so friendly and comforting during my treatment. I was not sure what to expect but everything was explained to me and I am amazed at how dramatic the results are! Thank you
Great results, the staff are so lovely and really make you feel welcome. If you are having trouble with fatty areas I really encourage you to try!
The service is so great! The ladies are very understanding and helpful in all areas including your general health and well being as well as the awesome treatments they provide! Would recommend!
I love my results! I’ve done the skin tightening treatment and had great results! The appearance of my skin has improved quite a lot after a few sessions and it feels so smooth. The girls are amazing and very knowledgable, I’ll definitely recommend this clinic to my friends!
