MBS festival held in Melbourne 9-12 June 2017 @ Melbourne Exhibition and Convention Centre South Wharf
Andi Lew engaged the whole Soul Food Kitchen audience with her incredible knowledge on the body and healing the body on a holistic level through the foods we eat. We all know food is our priority in nourishing our bodies and nervous system and there are two main body areas we need to set straight to ensure we absorb and 'assimilate' all the nutrients we need for healthy working cells, the brain and gut health. These are the foundation of slowing the ageing process, balancing hormones, radiating good health and vitality.
Andi talked us through the evil sugar and why our gut craves it, how important it is to have stevia over refined sugar, why we need to eat 'good fats' and why so importantly we need to eat protein. A super charged Green smoothie bowl made with Peak Nutritionals velvet vanilla WPI and TONE banana were on the menu at the festival and it tasted amazing!
As an author of 5 best selling health books, with super easy to follow healing recipes, Andi is well versed. Be sure to head over to her website if you missed the opportunity http://andilew.com/ and check out her Amaze bars, all vegan and packed full of loving healthy goodness!
We cant get enough of your knowledge Andi thank you!

Dual Olympic Medalist
PT, Food & Wellness Coach
Speaker & Presenter
Founder – Mind & Body Blitzwww.mindbodyblitz.com
Loudy thanks for taking the time today out of your busy schedule, I guess the first question I have for you is how did you get into PT-ing?
I’ve been involved in sport as an athlete for most of my life however didn’t start thinking about my PT qualifications until I was pregnant with my first child Layla back in 2010. I was working full time in Media as I’d completed a media and comms degree but the nature of my job didn’t allow for me to work part time. So once I was on maternity leave it was the perfect time to re invent myself!
Apart from being a PT , tell us about your Dual Olympic Medal status.How did this all come about?
I started gymnastics when I was 5 years old as my parents needed an outlet for my craziness. It was pretty evident that I was talented and I started training every day of the week. When I was 11 I was selected in a squad aimed at the Olympic Games and had to move to Canberra to train for gymnastics. Even as a gymnast I remember saying (when I was 8 years old) that I want to win an Olympic Medal for Australia. It was just something intrinsic that I’ve always strived for.
Unfortunately gymnastics didn’t work out, as I was 11 and far too homesick to train away from my parents – 3 weeks later I started diving on suggestion from my physiotherapist as there are a lot of similarities in the sports – 6 weeks later I competed at my first nationals and made my first Olympic team at 17. From my first taste of the Olympics I knew that I wanted to medal even more- I wasn’t the most confident of competitors, but am lucky enough to have competed at four Olympic Games – medalling at 2 (mind you I came 4th in 3 other events – that is pretty painstaking!!)
Can you put into words what were you thinking in those moment just before you dive for Olympic medal?Must be a terrifying moment with all the world watching!
An Olympic Medal is more than just a moment. When you are in the competition you have no idea of placing’s, or what is going on around you. The Olympic medals are won in training – when you are in competition, it’s about being on autopilot. But terrifying none the less
Tell me a bit about your training, how do you get and keep yourself motivated?Winter can be so depressing!
I think my training and being so busy is what actually gets me through winter! Exercise is the best thing for you especially when the seasons can affect your mood so much… I aim to do 2 – 3 workouts a week that are pretty intense. I love what High intensity interval training does for my body. I also love running, but I am not very good at it! On the other days it might be a walk with my kids, but I’m pretty active and I don’t sit still.
What sacrifices you had to make to reach your goal?
In all honesty when it’s your goal and it’s so important to you, then I don’t think there are sacrifices. Of course you might have to be disciplined to get up when the alarm goes off – but essentially goals are very personal. If you aren’t going to work for them then who is?
Do you have any suggestions for anyone thinking about taking up training with a PT - what should they focus on initially?
There are definitely a lot of options these days in terms of fitness and personal training. My advice is to go with your gut – PT’s have great relationships with client and you should find someone you can trust – not someone who may just talk the talk.
Juggling being a mum and PT-ing and helping people achieve their goals, what do you do to balance time between all the demands, keeping fit and having some sort of a balanced lifestyle?
I think it is really important to have time without technology. Just being in the same room with your family – we get so caught up these days with our digital gadgets – I have 5 email addresses on my phone and can get obsessive in missing an opportunity and have an incredible sense of urgency, but in my household when we are home from 5pm – 8pm we put everything away and spend beautiful time with each other.
Exercise is also my outlet. It makes me feel good about myself and this transcends onto my clients.
My lifestyle is definitely not balanced, but I love it and have so much gratitude for my family and my business – I remind myself every day just how lucky I am. I used to have a tendency to be really anxious and overwhelmed, but I find if you interrupt this with gratitude it definitely helps.
Do you have any advice for us mere recreational life-stylers and how to keep focused?What do you draw on for inner strength?
My advice is to just turn up – when you can. Don’t make excuses because it’s the easiest thing to do. Force yourself to do and your mind and your body will love you for it later!
What about nutrition, how important is this to reach physical goals?
I personal think reaching your physical goals is 70 percent nutrition and 30 percent exercise – health and fitness go hand in hand and you can’t have one without the other, but nutrition plays a MASSIVE part. I think the focus needs to be taken away from aesthetics and the way you look though. That will come in time, but the focus needs to be on health.
What is your 'go to tune' for cranking up the volume and getting into the zone?I love a bit of Eminem - Curtain Call!
I have a really good play list at my High Intensity Interval training class in Moonee Ponds – I love it – I will often just play it to put me in a really good mood! It ranges from Meghan Trainor “All about that Bass” to “A little party never killed no body” by Fergie to a little bit of Taylor Swift. Anyone who says they don’t like Taylor Swift is lying!!
Thanks Loudy we think you are an amazing role model for women and people wanting to achieve their goals!
