As you all know I have been writing about exercise and fitness and diets now for many years and have often talked about all the nonsense and ridiculous stuff we see plastered on TV, on the internet and in magazines about weight loss and crazy diets.How lucky was I ?…..and how refreshing was it to meet Cyndi O’Meara at a recent TAFE conference?
As some of you also know I am currently doing some student Practicum in Exercise Science and Co-Managing the TAFE Gym at Mooloolaba in Australia…..I was just so impressed by Cyndi that I wanted to share her site and information with you all. As you know I do not promote people or products that are rubbish and untrue and it is rare for me to make links to other sites but this one is a must for everyone….I totally agree with all Cyndi has to say…we should be concentrating on the additives and preservatives that are literally killing us !!! I hope you don’t mind Cyndi but I have put a link to your site for my followers and also stolen some of your blurb!!!
Check it people !!! .. Its fantastic stuff….
