blog - nutrition 101
Anyone that has had a consultation with me will know that at some point I will ask about their poo. They will also know that I like all the ‘gory’ details: colour, size, shape, frequency, etc.
The reason why I always ask is that it never fails to amaze me how many people have no idea what a ‘normal’ bowel movement should be.
This gives me the perfect opportunity to big up the nutritional benefits of the pumpkin. My local supermarket has been totally cleared out of all pumpkins large and small, and I guess most of them will end up being carved and used as lanterns. However, this delicious vegetable offers lots of potential on the nutrition front, so great to use them in cooking as well
The old adage goes ‘breakfast like a king, lunch like a prince, dine like a pauper’. Certainly when I was training considerable importance was placed on eating a good well-balanced breakfast; the prospect of skipping breakfast was viewed with horror and regarded as a complete no-no. However, interestingly I have readjusted my thinking on this in recent times…..
When I was studying nutrition the mantra we were taught was ‘little and often’ - 3 meals and 2 snacks was considered to be the right way to eat and very important to ensure that blood sugar remained balanced. This was an approach that I followed for very many years both with my own diet and with my clinic clients....however, is this still the case now?
