Her passion lies in the Mediterranean philosophy towards food after spending over a decade living in Italy and Spain.  Rather than obsessing on calorie counts Annabel has seen time and again the benefits of JERF – just eating real food.

Sonia – Nutritionist

Sonia is a qualified nutritionist and has always worked with food. A chef for many years and then on to teach commercial cookery, Sonia’s desire to understand food and how it connects to health and wellbeing then led her to study a Bachelor of food science in nutritional medicine.

Sonia enjoys combining her knowledge of natural medicine and cookery to promote healthy aging, and prevent the damaging effects of stress related illness with her clients. “My clients are often amazed at the profound improvements to quality of life that are achieved through simple changes to diet and lifestyle”

Dr. Rob – GP

Robert North is a former ER doctor who made the transition to family GP while seeking a better lifestyle for he and his family.  His passion is prevention “most of what I see in my surgery today could have been prevented, frequently with only a small modification to the patient’s lifestyle.”

We’ve also turned Dr. Rob into the Fitat60.com chatbot (lower right of this screen).  It’s not the real Dr. Rob, but hopefully helps point our Movers in the right direction.

Arthritis Prevention

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for arthritis. In fact, most treatments for arthritis are aimed at early recognition and prevention. Genetics can increase your likelihood for developing arthritis, as can a strong family history of the disease. Women are also more prone to arthritis than men.

You may try to prevent arthritis and still develop the disease. However, there are well evidenced actions you can take today to reduce your risk of developing arthritis.

5 steps to taking care of your wellbeing

The state of our wellbeing is reflected for example in the quality of our skin, the lustre of our hair and a strong immune system to fight off illness.  Good genetics?  Well, that is just the result of good luck.  If beauty is in the eye of the beholder, then for the most part, wellbeing is in the hands of the beholder.

Eat Yourself Healthy

Poor diet is a factor in one in five deaths around the world, according to the most comprehensive study ever carried out on the subject by medical journal The Lancet.  In their study, the Global Burden of Disease, they found that diet plays an important role in the prevention and management of many age-related diseases. We have put together some top-tips on helping you eat yourself healthy.

Better Immune Health

You may not have heard about Wellmune®, but research shows this yeast beta glucan can help support the immune system. Wellmune can be found in a range of fortified foods, beverages and supplements to help you easily support your immune health.

10 Ways to Get 10 Minutes of Exercise

Even if you can’t find the time you can still exercise.  You just need to sneak in the equivalent in resourceful ways. “The idea is to keep moving,” says Fitat60 PT, Fred.  Find whatever works for you and just move. Park half a couple of blocks from the shopping centre and walk. Take the stairs instead of the escalator. 

JERF – Just Eat Real Food

The JERF diet, an acronym for “Just Eat Real Food” is a concept that is easy to grasp and apply in your daily life. At the end of the day, that’s precisely what you want in a new diet: a new way of relating with food that brings about lasting results and can be maintained without much struggle for as much as you want.

Avoiding Aged Care

Let’s face it, 2020 highlighted many things.  None more than the spotlight that was shone on Aged Care.  Whilst generally Aged Care in Australia is some of the best in the world, the reality for many in Aged Care, or for those with loved ones there, is a long way off how we intended to spend our last years.  This gap in care had already been identified, long before Covid19 hit, and a Royal Commission was already well underway.  In July 2020 the Royal Commission Into Aged Care Quality and Safety, released the findings of a 10,000 person study that revealed that people are prepared to pay for high-quality care when they are older, whether it by co-contributing to the cost or through taxes. 

The 8Bs to Build Your Immune Health

We often here about things that can boost your immunity.  That is fine when we are feeling a little run down, or even coming into the cold and flu season.  However products that promote immunity boosting typically do just that… give you a short-term boost to help.  As we age it is much better for us to ensure we are building habits that promote our immune health constantly.
