What's Happening at the Garage
We are going back to basics this week.  Check out our latest blog post - it is the kick-off for a new series: "Eat Better - our guide to healthy eating".  This is our attempt to cut through through the nutritional confusion and help you develop foundational habits to make you and keep your healthy.  The series will culminate in the launch of a new workshop in the New Year to make this approach even more actionable - stay tuned.

For those of you who have taken out 4+2 Diabetes Reversal Strategy Group or S3 Weight Management Group courses we have another free Q&A session with Jess Pirnak, our resident dietitian on "How to Get Enough Fibre". Register now for the session on November 23 at 5 PM.

Finally, ff you know anyone with Type II Diabetes that is interested in learning more about whether reversal is possible, I will be doing a free webinar on November 24 AM and 12:00 PM.  If you register you can watch it afterwards.  Please forward this to everyone who you think might benefit from it.

From the Blog
Why is nutrition so hard to figure out?
Why is it so confusing to know how to eat well and be healthy?
When did eating become nutrition?

Over the next several posts, we will tackle these questions as we put together ‘Eat Better - our guide to healthy eating’.

This will be our attempt to cut through the noise and help you learn foundational habits that will make eating better easier.

Exercise of the Week 

Exercising with Injuries


Injuries should not stop you from exercising altogether. At the very least you can continue to train parts of the body that are uninjured and you can work around the injured areas until you recover. For example, if you sprain your ankle, train the upper body, core, and the legs in a way that does not involve the ankle (for example leg extensions and leg curls).

Consult with your physio or an exercise specialist if you are unsure of what you can still do.

Injuries are not ideal, but we can look at them as opportunities to focus on other areas.
