You can be the strongest person in the world and still be struck down with an anxiety disorder. In all fairness, it's usually the strongest and most confident people who suffer from anxiety disorders because they hide their emotions away.
Beauty and happiness do not actually go hand in hand, one does not automatically equate to the other. There is after all a beauty that we all agree on- the beautiful people in Hollywood, the models and anyone who essentially graces the front cover of Sports illustrated Magazine!
Alcohol has hi-jacked situations that automatically give us what we need. It's the squeaky clean boss who claims the credit for all the work done by the rest of the team. Or the goal-hanging striker who gets the plaudits for scoring the winning goal.
After filming The Apprentice a year ago I moved to London to start my business. The major impact this had was it broke my routine. I believe routine is so important to maintaining physical goals.
This chocolate orange cheesecake is everything I could ever want in a dessert - it's rich, smooth, chocolately, tangy, sweet, creamy, I could go on and on! In a word, it's just perfect, and without a doubt the best thing I've ever made, so I hope you fellow cheesecake lovers love it too!
It's every Londoner's duty to create a city that cradles and nurtures our future generations. 4 in 10 children in London live in poverty. That's 597,...
Enjoy in a bowl served with some fresh berries, fruit, nut butter, or go commando. It's good enough to do that. Serve with almond milk, coconut milk, or if you are like me (which some people in my house have decided to point out is a little weird...) serve with cold water!!
As a nation, we continue to struggle with our obesity. We know it's bad for us - it's hard not to, with people like me banging on about it all the time (sorry, but as a doctor, that's my job!). We know we should be eating healthily... but we clearly aren't managing quite as well as we could.
. I am a bargain hunter, but even I wouldn't have laser eye surgery because it was cheap. In this case, the surgeon who carried out my procedure had been personally recommended by a girl who worked at my optician and that was why I put my trust in him.
Sometimes to understand where someone is going you have to first understand where they have been. I am about to start blogging frequently about my fitness pursuits so I wanted you to know the struggles and victories I have faced previously.
It seemed awkward at first, not being in a studio with a real person instructing, but I like that I'm saving money and that I can even do yoga in my pyjamas. For mums, the privacy of home also means unrepentantly ejecting the occasional, embarrassing noise caused by downward dog.
So what defines a bad food? When it's loaded with sugar, fat, salt, artificial ingredients, processed with chemicals and/or contains zero nutrition we can safely agree that it's unhealthy.
For decades we have been told that when it comes to weight loss you need to count calories. Put less in than you use up and you lose weight. It's the perfect equation... except that it isn't! Playing the calorie counting game doesn't work in the long term and even in the short term it may do more harm that good.
I went to meet a Child-Minding Association in Northamptonshire with over 8oo registered Child-Minders providing essential care for up to 24,000 children. They are also responsible for an innovative project to set standards of excellence in Food and Nutrition for Early Years Home Child-Care.
From showing the world how stoic you are by putting in so much overtime and working at weekends, the new, smarter way to work is to improve your work/life balance, starting from looking after your sleep.
