Letting Go Of Calorie Counting

For decades we’ve been obsessed with calories, daily thoughts for many include how many have we eaten, are they all the same and should we be cutting them to lose weight. In nearly all instances this isn’t healthy behaviour, and we need to reshape our perspective when it comes to calories. This week’s Food For Thought sees the Giles Yeo and I deep dive into whether it’s time to let go of calorie counting or watch every one?


How Metabolism & Weight Work

If you’ve been looking at ways to lose weight then you’ve almost definitely come across the buzzword ‘metabolism’. Some say it’s like a switch that you can boost before seeing the pounds fall off, but science suggests otherwise. This week’s Food For Thought sees Registered Nutritionist Ryan Carter and I delve into what our metabolism really is and whether there is any truth to boosting it to help lose weight.


What All Parents Need To Know

Escaping The Diet Trap

This week’s Food For Thought sees Dr Joshua Wolrich and I explore how we can all improve our relationship with food from an evidence-based perspective.
