    Looking for a good Naturopath 

    Hi Emma, I have visited many Naturopaths in my time and many seem keen just to sell a heap of vitamins and homeopathy products whih costs me about $200-300 per visit. What you do changes lives, and I would love to be able to find a professional with the same ethos as you who can provide noticeable results. No one has looked at my tongue, nails, my eye balls. They just give me lots of pills and a generic diet menu. What should I look for in a professional? I am just tired of spending so much money with no results. Regards, Sandra Romero

    Hi Emma, Firstly - Love the show! Your knowledge of food and what is good for our bodies is phenomenal. I would love to set up an appointment with you but I live in Coogee in Sydney. Can you recommend a natropath in this area by any chance and what sort of questions should i be asking to make sure i am on the right track for eating correctly for my body?

    bad food 

    Hi Emma, I have a lot of motivation to lose weight, going to the gym 6 times a week and have a personal trainer. But I cannot get my head into the game of eating healthy. I know what I need to go, but I still eat the bad food, chocolate, pizza etc... do you have any tips to get my head in the game? I have 30 - 40 kilos to lose. Been going to the gym for a few months with no weightloss due to bad eating. Thanks, Meg

    Sugar free 

    I recently watched an episode which explained that the sugar free soft drinks etc were also bad for weight loss. Other than water and full sugar/fat drinks... What is there!? Thanks :) Rach

    Swaps for gluten free 

    Hi Emma, I've recently been diagnosed with gluten intolerance. I can't eat sourdough or rye or multigrain bread any more and I'm finding that gluten free bread isn't a good swap as it's much more dense and has loads more calories. I don't need more calories - I'm 85kg and only 5'4". I'm working on improving my fitness and am now walking, strength training, or other kind of cardio 5 - 6 times a week, but I can't shift any weight. I'm thinking about trying Rebecca's meal plan. Can you suggest any swaps for things like the sourdough and pita breads? Thanks, Ann.
