Month: July, 2013

With endless amounts of time spent on the internet each day, scouring google for the latest online sales, information and sometimes even a little cheeky downloading (shhh!). One website springs to mind when told to state my favorite.

The Wellness Warrior- as if the name isn’t captivating enough!

The website is designed in a blog style which provides an abundance of recipes, motivational quotes, health talks and interviews, which are updated weekly. For a health junkie like me, it is easy to see why this has become my potent addiction. 

It’s not only the content which consistently draws me back, but the sites easy navigation, visually appealing font’s and colors, as well as its use of visual hierarchy. 

Personally I look at the site and envision one of my favorite recipes being formulated- putting in the perfect amount of ingredients, which work together perfectly, to create a an amazing and addictive concoction !

Kudos Wellness Warrior!

Maccas 30-day challenge infomercial

Macca’s 30-day health challenge

New Macca’s infomercial mystifies the masses

In McDonalds latest ploy to revamp it’s reputation in the eyes of the health conscious, the “30-day Macca’s health challenge” has been crafted. Their latest infomercial features Alex Carnadale, celebrity health guru, who attempts to sell the idea that McDonalds is the solution to a healthy and balanced diet.

The confusion surrounding this new campaign has the world mystified. Naturopath and health expert David Wolfe has recently expressed his alarm and frustration stating:

 “As to how McDonald’s nutrient deficient foods could provide even an ounce of a persons recommended daily nutrients is a mystery to me. What scares me even more is that the government can allow the public to be exposed to this scam.”

Carnadale who has supposedly lost up to 30 killograms on the Macca’s 30-day challenge swears by her new diet.

“My philosophy on health is that by eating a balanced amount of protein, wholegrains and good fats, in combination with a healthy amount of exercise, you can achieve great weight loss results. I have worked with the MacDonald’s head CEO to collaborate and create a diet plan that encompasses all the elements of core health.”

Well if Mcflury’s and a cheese burger is all one has to do for better health and weightloss, then someone pinch me because my dream just came true…
