I have never seen any kind of video on broadcast, and rarely even on the internet, that raises awareness about psychosis. Never. I’m sure if I search hard enough, I would find some scrap of something but that’s hardly the point. There is nothing circulating, obvious and available.
Late last year, student film maker Henry Gale created a three minute long animation on psychosis awareness. Over the past four months, the video has been used nationally by educational institutions and mental health organisations alike, its humorous (yet informative) tone a refreshing change to the usual negative connotations that educational pieces of this nature tend to provide.
Henry has since written a blog for Time To Change, a campaign run by UK organisation Mind, aiming to stop the discrimination faced by those suffering with mental illness. It’s an open and sincere account of his personal experiences with psychosis, and what drove him to try and de-stigmatise an illness that so many people misunderstand.

Prior to this trip out west I was having crazy weight problems in that I was losing more and more for no reason and had to eat every hour or I’d have crazy shakes and tremors.
I’ve eaten non stop for the last week and I’m pretty sure I’ve gained about 100lb. Good to know my body is fixed and now I’m ready to get back to working out.
Felt like I needed some gym inspiration & figured I’d share so take a look at this babe!

This question might be better directed at google or a personal trainer cause i honestly have no idea.
If i’m doing both, i’d do weights first so i don’t wear myself out with cardio and am able to lift more. Might just be my logic though :/
Trying out these @xobakingco gluten-free cookies for his lordship to bring on our roadtrip tomorrow. They’re pretty delicious, slightly chalkier texture than a “real” cookie but still soft and gooey centers. Would definitely recommend for anyone following a #glutenfree diet!! #health #food #gf #cookies
People always send me messages asking if x detox is good or if y detox is better and they usually consist of some bizarre mix of things you’d never want to ingest.
So for those interested why not try something more sensible like this. Your body is designed to eliminate toxins and does a pretty great job of it all by itself but trying something like this (or adapting your diet to look a little more like this) will help it on its way. Lots of fruit and veggies will provide you with (among other things) lots of fiber to help eliminate the nasties quicker.
Adding gelatinous whole foods like chia seeds or aloe will also help. Think of them as a really healthy version of drain-o for your body. They act like a sponge and pick up all the toxins on the way out.
‘If you were alone on a deserted island with a pig, would you eat the pig or starve to death?’
Hmm. If you were not alone, living on a planet with 7 billion people, had access to unlimited fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and other healthy foods, and knew animals suffer and die horrible deaths so you could eat them when you don’t need to eat them to survive, would you continue to eat them? The difference between our questions is that your scenario will never happen and mine is the choice you face right now. Which do you believe is worth answering?

I’ve never been one to count calories purely because i’ve always been happier gauging my wellbeing on how i feel.
Recently i have been curious as to what my average daily intake is vs what i’m “meant” to consume (BMR x fitness level and what not) so i decided to use yesterday’s calories, a fairly average day, to figure it out.
Taking my BMR and fitness level into account i’m supposed to have around 2140 calories per day.
My actual calorie intake is more like 2500+, meaning i eat as though its an 8 day week. Probably should’ve caught up with me, no?
There is a huge difference between eating 2500 calories of the average American diet vs 2500 calories of my diet. The calories i consume are ones that my body will USE, things that will actually help it function in a more efficient way, meaning i metabolize things faster. 2500 calories of McDonalds is only going to slow you down.
Also the more muscle you have the faster you will metabolize fat so thats another thing to take into account.
Some people just have slower metabolisms, some have thyroid problems, some people can’t keep weight on.
What i’m trying to say is that what works for one person or the “average American” isn’t necessarily what will work for you. Use your common sense and eat healthily; things that will nourish your body not clog it up. See how your body reacts to it and go from there.
