Bamboozled by the latest diet trend? Cupboards full of saintly health food buys that you're not sure what to do with? Here's where you can find my features and podcasts with health experts including nutritional therapists and personal trainers who help debunk the myths that may have you stuck in a health rut.
my symprove diary
A healthy gut should contain a specific balance of good bacteria. However, the stresses of modern living and poor diet can interfere with this and lead to digestive imbalance. For 18 months I've experienced bloating, painful cramps and stomach upsets and just accepted it as the norm after a period of stress. I interviewed Eve Kalinik and suddenly there was hope - could probiotics help? I started taking a daily dose of Symprove, a water-based multi-strain supplement containing active bacteria, and these are the results... COMING SOON.
Have you ever had a rumbling tummy or bloated so badly you've had to undo the button on your jeans? While many of us refer to the gut as the 'second brain' it seems we've become so used to ignoring its cries for help that we're missing out on feeling great. In this episode of the podcast, Nutritional Therapist Eve, talks about how your gut should really feel, why should you listen to it, and clarifies what probiotics can really do for you -- EVE KALINIK PODCAST.
Did you know that your adrenal glands are the size of two walnuts and sit just above your kidneys? Originally used to flood the mind and body with adrenaline when faced with a sabre tooth tiger to give you a greater chance of escape, in today's modern living they now 'fire' when you get a snarky email from your boss, realise you've missed the last train home and have a row with your other half. The result is that some of us are experiencing adrenal fatigue and Henrietta Norton from Wild Nutrition chats to me in this podcast about how we can avoid it -- HENRIETTA NORTON PODCAST.
the truth about the gym
By her physique you may think the Anna Reich's attitude to the gym and her diet is intense, scary and potentially a little restrictive. Far from it. In this podcast Anna shares her relaxed, but straight talking, view on all things fitness. From what you've got to do in the gym, to the changes you need to make to your diet if you want to see results, Anna knows it all. Listen in for some real 'body talk', the realities of weight lifting for women and why extreme diets and fitness fads aren't worth your time -- ANNA REICH PODCAST.
when good resolutions go bad
Did you make resolutions for 2017? Have you been sticking to a healthy eating or fitness plan since the clock struck midnight at New Year? Willpower is one thing, but choosing the right activity and nutrition for you is an entirely personal endeavour. Another person's HIIT class might not suit you and - newsflash - you shouldn't feel bad about that. If you're willpower is waning, or if you felt defeated before you even began, this may help... EACH TO THEIR OWN.
