I think that lack of time is one of the biggest blocks to healthy eating. I hear it time and time again in my clinic and can suffer from that a bit myself. When people have time they can ‘be good’, when they don’t it all goes wrong. So what is needed are some quick fixes for healthy fast food
I saw a great programme this week from the BBC – “How to Stay Young”. They investigate all sorts of experiments and research from across the world to see what we can do to support a healthy ageing process. One of the thing they highlighted was the possible connection between the centenarians of Okinawa and the purple sweet potatoes that they eat
So I have just come back from the supermarket and it made me realise just how hard it can be to make healthy choices. In my clinic, clients frequently tell me that they have ‘no time to be healthy’ or that in a busy week their healthy routine just flew out of the window….
Like all good boy scouts the only way to succeed is to be prepared...
50% of the UK population are vitamin D deficient and I certainly find that this is the case when I test my clients. Do you know your number? We used to think that vitamin D was mainly important for bone health, but now hardly a month goes by without another research report being published with yet more compelling evidence of the importance of this vitamin.
In my view eggs have been given a very bad rap for years. Eggs are widely considered to be a food that will give you high cholesterol and a food that should be positively avoided if you already have high cholesterol.
When I see people in clinic I often recommend meal ideas that includes eggs. However, when I do this nearly everyone will ask how many eggs can they eat in a week to be ‘safe’.
If there was a magic pill or potion that would guarantee you a long, and more importantly, healthy life would you be interested? Something so powerful that it would significantly increase the length your life and keep you free from horrible degenerative diseases - sounds too good to be true doesn’t it?
