Do you suffer with any of the following?Fatigue?Joint and muscle pain?Food cravings?Gas and bloating?Regular headaches?Brain fog/ moodiness?Weight loss resistance?Acne, Rosacea, Eczema or Psoriasis?If you go to your doctor or pharmacist and mention any of the above complaints you will no doubt be offered some sort of medication to combat the symptoms you have complained about. This may seem all well and good to you, many people feel cheated if they aren’t given medication, but is treating the symptom really what we should be doing? What about the cause?...

Would you like to live to 100+ if you had your health? I know I would!I came across a great news story the other day about 27 cities in America who are trying to change the habits of the masses to make a marked difference on the longevity of their residents, and I don’t just mean living longer, I mean thriving into their old age and beyond, something I have always believed is completely possible.It is so refreshing to hear a story like this, whole communities of people...

I was chatting to someone this week about the problems facing overweight people and I was sticking up for anyone who is overweight because it is really not their fault.I am not suggesting that if you have a weight problem you have the right to blame anyone else but yourself really. Lets face it; it is ultimately your responsibility to look after the body you have been kindly given to live in. But what I will say is, the food industry is not helping any of us one...

After watching the first episode of Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s ‘Britain’s Fat Fight’ last night, (I feel your pain Hugh) I was going to blog about sugar and obesity, however I have decided to change direction this morning as I will explain.Two of my biggest dislikes are the food industry and the packaging industry and to be honest they are often quite closely linked. (Oh and did I mention the pharmaceutical industry?!)So the reason for my change of heart is because I was sat in Waitrose café this morning while...

I recently had the pleasure (I use that word loosely!) of staying in a hotel at the Eureka Leisure Park in Ashford the night before and after our Eurostar trip to Marseille and I can’t quite get the whole experience out of my head. And that is not a good thing!The hotel was great and we had a brilliant night’s sleep, as was guaranteed! However what bothered me was the Eureka Leisure Park Eateries and this is why I have the whole chicken and egg question rattling around...

I was talking to someone the other day who suggested that as I had never had a weight problem or a serious health issue could I truly help those who wanted to get more healthy or lose weight?Gabrielle Bernstein, world famous spiritual teacher, suggests you need to have a story, own it and then share it. Her story was recovering from alcohol addiction and finding a spiritual path, all of which she shares with others. If I look at her journey then no I guess I don’t have...

As you may be aware, it was World Earth Day on Sunday. It is such an important day to recognize, especially at the moment when our planet desperately needs our help, but why it is not a week, a month or even a year I really don’t know. Having said that some companies are taking it upon themselves to extend Earth Day way beyond just one day. which is just what our planet needs, they will hopefully help pave the way for a cleaner greener world.I subscribe to...

Educating EatersWhilst waiting for the weather forecast last week, (I got a bit obsessed with the snow as I love it!) I heard a troubling piece of health news saying that obesity is now the most likely cause of cancer in the UK and has even taken over smoking. I was not necessarily shocked by that bit, smoking has become so taboo of late and is definitely no longer cool, thank God. However eating has clearly taken over as the vice of choice for the masses, it is...

It is so difficult doing my job, not the writing of my blog posts, posting delicious images on Instagram or even creating new recipes, it is trying to convince people that getting healthy and losing weight is not all about iron willpower or deprivation, counting calories or working out what syns you are allowed each day, it is about falling in love with healthy, colourful food, finding wholesome alternatives to your favourite things and most of all it’s about taking it slowly so you can replace those bad...

Don’t worry Halloween has not come early, I have just been thinking a lot about treats and what really makes us classify certain foods as ‘treats’ when in theory they are not ‘treating’ us one bit!I know people say to their kids, ‘Lets go to McDonalds, KFC, Burger King as a treat’ or something similar, but if you really think about it, is filling yours and your kids bodies with sugar, refined carbs or low grade meat with barely a hint of fruit and veg actually a treat,...
