Natural Food Finder Conference at Sheepdove Organic Farm

Thursday, June 24th, 2010

Hi All,


There is an awesome conference going on that is aimed at all those who have an interest in nutrition and health. Lets face it that should be all of us! We really need to make an effort to support these types of events as they are few and far between here in the UK, although we are slowly catching up! This event and some of the information carried in it can truly be life changing.

The conference is the brain child of Ben Pratt, of Natural Food Finder (look out for the up coming site review and an interview with the great man himself), it aims to bring to light some of the truths behind diet, nutrition and wellbeing.

The conference is called Natural Food and Nutrition for Modern Diseases and will be held on the 24th September 2010, so not long left now get yourselves booked on, I am sure a conference of this caliber will sell out fast!

Ben had gathered an awesome range of speakers, these include:-
– Ben Pratt – Author / Founder Natural Food Finder – Topic: OBESITY
– Barry Groves – Author, Topic: FATS – Weightloss
– Sir Julian Rose – Organic pioneer and author, Topic: GMO and Organic Farming
– Dr Natasha Campbell McBride – Presenter, Author. Topic: Heart Disease
– Pete Cohen – GMTV weightloss guru presenter, Topic: Making the change and moving forward.

In line with the content of the day the event will be held at Sheepdrove Organic Farm, Lambourn, Berkshire.

Have a look at Natural Food Finder for more information.

Accountability in your goals

Friday, June 18th, 2010

Hi All,

As many of you know I am working with Mark Bowness of to help him achieve his Wellbeing goal of staying off alcohol for a year. His blogging efforts have got me thinking about the ways that you can make yourself accountable.

Being accountable for your goals means that you have a system in place that is checking that you are keeping up with the steps you said you would take to move closer to your goal. Accountability greatly increases your chances of achieving your goals, you are no longer just accountable to yourself. But also to others this makes it alot harder to go easy on yourself.

When looking into this I came across a great blog written by Lauren Hutchinson, titled Shrinking Violet. She is on a weight loss mission, and is very open and honest about what she is doing to achieve this goal. She comments on her successes, failures and general feelings as she makes her way through this exciting and life changing process.

It is vital that you look for a method of accountability in the goals that you set yourself. This can be by sharing it with the world via a blog, or more low key by sharing your goals with a friend or family member who will support you. If it is a goal that you would like to keep more private, why not become accountable to yourself by making sure your goals are written down. Then keeping good records or a diary of your progress.

Make sure you have a look at Mark and Laurens blogs for some great inspiration.
