5 HEALTH AND FITNESS TIPS THAT MADE ME LESS HEALTHY

Please like & subscribe if you enjoyed this video!

There’s so much information on the internet about tips and tricks that’ll solve ‘all your health’ (and thus happiness) problems, such as cutting out carbs, training everyday and always having a goal. While everyone is unique, I thought I’d put together a video of the health and fitness tips that I believe actually made me LESS healthy, both physically and mentally.

Now I feel like I have the healthiest attitude I’ve ever had towards food and training, but it’s not always been this way, and it’s sometimes hard to ignore the abundant (often conflicting) advice on the internet. My main advice, however you choose to live your life, is that you should focus more on enjoyment and happiness than ‘optimal health’, and focussing on the latter often precludes the former. I hope you find this interesting and/or useful!

Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below 🙂

    You mentioned overtraining. Do you use an Apple Watch, Whoop, or Fitbit to track your training & recovery? Why not if these tools can help prevent overtraining?

  2. Iona Jones

    Hi flora 😁 I would love to see more food related videos, like your favourite vegan dishes during lockdown 👍🏼

  3. Valerie Hearn

    I enjoy the vlogs and fun things with your boyfriend! Juicy questions (I don't know if that is your style?) or a couples yoga challenge!

    Wondering if you could do a video of anything that you do to support your running, maybe what you need to make sure you strengthen and work on often in order to prevent injury. I'm new to running and countless people have told me not to do it as it will 'ruin my knees, shins, ankles, joints etc' and I'm wondering what you can do to prevent this. Thank you! x

    Omg thank you for posting this! I found out my freshman year I wasn’t eating enough and that is why I was injured so often. If I’m actually training and keeping 30 miles a week-I have to eat 4,000 calories a day just to sustain that (and I’m sedentary during the day!). I had no idea. I stuck to the old school “rule” of 2,000 calories a day and how anything over is too much. I will admit I did do competitive lifting for three years so I do have more muscle mass, but it’s truly amazing how important it is to fuel yourself. I noticed initially I had a jump in weight, but I learned for me it is related to the glycogen stores in my muscles (happy thing for me to see my muscles happy!) and this does go down a bit as time goes on for those that are scared of that jump, but my runs became so much easier and I no longer got that burning sensation right away. Thank you for spreading awareness! I wish I knew this sooner but it’s better than later! I hope your IT band is behaving! 😊

    Nuitrian ….. always fascinating….. I've even attended a group evening with Hayley Carruthers at our club, and was fascinated to hear her input and I'm sure your nuitrician input would be your own!!!
    This is huge topic of what you eat at Ultras, Marathons, Half's, 10Ks etc…. and why and when to eat!

    Great video again Flora!

  7. Sabine Ottala

    Hi Flora, I really liked your tip about not always having a goal. I realised after starting my degree that I just didn't enjoy having a goal for every single activity, and I wanted exercise to be fun and positive with no pressure. It's made me healthier mentally and I probably do more exercise because I see it as a break from all the targets and deadlines.

    im a gardener, who also runs, i've just put out a video on my you tube channel about lupins if you want any gardening advise let me know and i will comment back or make a you tube video for you. your videos are always great but i think this is one of your best keep up the good work!

  9. stargazerbird

    So many of those’ I did this for 30 days’ on YouTube. I want to scream ‘rest days’ at them. Totally counter productive.

  10. Kathy Smk

    just found your channel and you definitely got a new subscriber! loved what you said at the beginning about being healthy physically but not mentally. I'm only at minute 3 and can already give a thumbs up because it's a great vid for sure 🙂

    Carbohydrates can be fun. They signal that there is something good in fruits, such as some vitamins which can be difficult to get in any other way (I am not saying vitamins are sweet in themselves, but the sweetness of the fruit is understood as a signal). Erythrocytes, astrocytes and possibly other cells absolutely require glucose; that's where gluconeogenesis comes in and saves the day.

    I really really enjoyed this video but only made it halfway because of the typing in the background, I'm so easily irritated omg 😭

  13. Ryan Smith

    I have been guilty of running for numbers on Strava, and seeing the upwards trend of mileage.. I'm better now at just listening to my body and doing what feels right, while also trying to improve
