01/08/2020

Wellbeing experts Nadia Narain and Katia Narain Phillip have been promoting the benefits of self-care way before it became a wellness ‘movement’. Their new book, Self-care for the Real World, is a result of the women’s twenty years of rich experience in yoga (Nadia is one of the UK’s most celebrated teachers with very high-profile clients) and health (Katia is a food pioneer, having opened her first raw food café over ten years ago, she now runs Triyoga’s innovative Nectar Café).

What Is the SLOW-CARB DIET?

27/06/2020

Carbohydrates are a necessary macronutrient and act as our body’s main source of energy. They help fuel your brain (the brain accounts for 25% of the body’s carbohydrate use), kidneys, muscles, and the central nervous system. Carbs are naturally occurring sugars, starches, and fiber in food. These starches and sugars are broken down through digestion to form glucose, providing energy and giving power to all body functions. But you already knew that, so let’s get into what a slow-carb diet…

12 best breakfasts for weight loss to keep you full until lunch

25/06/2020

The optimum breakfast for weight loss doesn’t have to be boring, bland or the least appetising option. To lose weight you need to be in a calorie deficit, yes, but fat loss is all about your overall calorie consumption and expenditure across your day, week, and month – not just one meal. It makes sense, then, that the healthier your diet is in general the easier it is to achieve a calorie deficit; you can turn any meal you love into a…

05/02/2020

Banishing all sugar is not realistic, or indeed much fun. The occasional treat is pretty fundamental, however, it’s important to know when you’re splurging so that you can take control of your diet, and understand what’s in the foods you’re using to fuel your body. To avoid overeating high sugar foods, leading…

Rosie Huntington Whiteley on her intermittent fasting routine

25/01/2020

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has said that she practices intermittent fasting – meaning that she eats within an eight to 10-hour window. “It gives my body a chance to digest everything,” she told this weekend’s issue of The Sunday Times Style magazine. Whether this is an evidence-backed lifestyle is still pending. One study in the International Journal of Obesity found intermittent fasting to be more effective for fat loss in young women than a calorie controlled diet and further improved insulin sensitivity – but a scientifically conclusive answer is…

02/12/2019

We can all agree that restrictive diets are detrimental to our physical and mental health in the long run. For our sanity, it’s important to enjoy what we eat, and registered dieticians insist that most foods are fine in moderation. That said, regardless of whether or not fat-loss is your aim, “there are some foods, which provide minimal nutritional benefits, that we should limit or avoid,” says Vandana Sheth, R.D., spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. So, how can you begin…

Swerving cow’s milk, cheese and yoghurt has been heralded as the answer to most things, from reducing your acne to helping you lose weight. And while some people are moving to cut out dairy for ethical reasons, if your concerns are health-related, does the science stack up in favour of waving ‘bye’ to the old semi skimmed?

What happens to your body when you give up carbohydrates

23/08/2019

Giving up an entire food group isn’t usually advisable unless there’s a specific medical reason to, but often that doesn’t stop people – especially when it comes to carbohydrates. Carbs seem to have acquired a bad reputation for making you put on weight, but in reality they’re vital for giving your body the energy it needs. Frida Harju-Westman, in-house nutritionist at health app Lifesum, always advises to aim for a balanced diet. “Incorporating complex carbohydrates can improve your endurance and…
