The Best & Worst Nutrition Advic‪e‬

Social media influencers poor nutrition and health advice 8 times out of 9 – that’s according to Glasgow University who studied self-appointed wellness ‘experts’ with more than 80,000 followers! With a minefield of supposedly authoritative resources each providing their own take on a nutritional education, it’s little wonder confusion is rising and our health is suffering. This week’s Food For Thought sees Dietitian Lyndi Cohen and I delve into the worse nutrition advice out there to help you sort fact from fiction once and for all!


Building Self-Assurance & Overcoming Insecurity

Something so many of us are after is confidence. While some seem to be born with it or fake it until they make it, it just doesn’t come easy to so many people. Something that is becoming increasing prevalent is a lack of self-assurance and with this insecurity, but we can change this, by realising your true worth and finding faith in yourself! This week’s Food For Thought sees body confidence influencer Alex Light and I explore how to overcome insecurities and build real self-assurance.

Being Your Fittest At Hom‪e‬

We all know the benefits of exercise, yet why at times can it be so hard to commit to it or to see the results we want? Well, something we need to think about is our whole approach to exercise in order to be able to reap the benefits of working out and do what is right for our physical and mental health.

Thankfully, the smallest of adjustments can lead to big changes to your health and that of the planet’s too! This week’s Food For Thought sees zero waste chef and author Max La Manna and I breathe new energy into the plant-based living, sustainability and explore making the most of leftovers typically destined for the bin!


The Psychology Behind Weight Loss

Almost half of all Brits have tried to lose weight at some point, with the figure rising to as high as 57% for just women. And almost two-thirds of dieters say that they are pretty much on a diet ‘all or most of the time’. This week’s Food For Thought sees trainee Health Psychologist Joe O’Brien and I explore how to develop sustainable weight-loss with the latest evidence-based psychological interventions.


Gain Control Of Emotional Eating

Anyone who will tell you that hunger is just one of so many reasons that we eat and those with a tendency of emotional eating are especially vulnerable to making poor diet choices. If you’re an emotional eater, you may find yourself eating to deal with uncomfortable emotions, using food as a reward when you’re happy, and craving sweets or unhealthy snacks when stressed. Don’t worry – you’re not alone! This week’s Food For Thought sees psychiatrist Dr Chi Chi Obuaya and I unearth how we can gain back control of eating and understand how to stop the vicious cycle of guilt, shame and restriction.


Boosting Body Confidence

Like it or not, most of us are aware of how we look. But it’s time understood how serious an impact can it have on our wellbeing and our mental health? In focusing on the positive things our bodies do, we can reframe our thoughts and boost our body confidence but it’s easier said than done isn’t it. This week’s Food For Thought sees journalist and self-love activist Danae Mercer and I break down the barriers around body confidence, and explore how exactly we can switch up our insecurities and transform the way we feel about ourselves.


The Immunity Secret

The global pandemic has meant we’re all much more aware of our health. And, with us all washing your hands with vigour, applying hand sanitiser all day long, scouring the supermarket ways to boost our immune system, it’s time we fully understood what works and what really doesn’t. This week’s Food For Thought sees Immunologist Dr Jenna Macciochi and I break down exactly why it’s so important to respect and learn about our immune system so we can then avoid doing more harm than good.
