One aspect of her post-travel tales really bothered me. During her stay on-board she attended a seminar on health, had a 'personal assessment', and ended up coming home with some pills and a new diet.
I really like Instagram. I like its simplicity and I like its reach but mostly I like to quietly judge the people that put themselves and their lives right out there in the public.
The Office for National Statistics (ONS) stands like a light house shining alarm signals across the stormy seas of British national and local politics while individuals and families crash into the rocks with an ever diminishing chance of being rescued by the lifeboats of the increasingly stretched NHS.
The health and fitness industry is awash with branded diets and exercise programmes, and has been for decades. And it's a lucrative industry for gurus and sponsors alike, mostly perhaps because no two people are the same. People attempting to lose weight will invariably need to try more than one way of doing so, as there's no single programme which works for all.
It's a new month already, and time again for our monthly review of the best new health and fitness studies. This month, brilliant research on obesity, preferential activating different muscles during squats and, of course, Pokemon Go all make an appearance!
Most of us don't know what an appropriate portion should look like and, following today's article in the BBC, we're under-reporting the amount of calories we eat by almost one-third. Apart from the 80g portion of fruit and vegetables we should eat a day, there are no official UK guidelines on portion sizes. With this in mind, here is my easy guide for understanding portion sizes and it's based on a simple tool - your hand!
My name is Kati. I had a stroke in January 1995, and I have been almost entirely paralyzed with no meaningful movement or able to talk since. I have Locked-In Syndrome, I am trapped inside my body. Let me share a little secret with you;

Maybe the next time somebody tells you that the NHS, the "closest thing we have to a national religion", is so wonderful, you can remind them of this episode. The time that NHS England spent public money trying to deny treatment for MSM because the sex they have isn't well-regarded.
Get mediating to claim your health -- mind and body. Your mind is your most precious asset, but most of all, dive into the realms of your inner being to discover and realise your true potential in all areas of your life.
I was extremely naïve and I honestly thought it would be easier than it was. It's tough I wont deny it but from my limited experience, here are the key things that I did and learnt. I hope they help you too.
Green tea is a worthwhile training aid which can supplement your health and fitness loss goals when used correctly. Now, a specific variety of green tea is gaining popularity, which many believe to be stronger and more potent than the standard blend.
PrEP is exciting, new, and currently, unique. It is not a vaccine, although it has a similar impact. We can draw comparisons to statins, in terms of preventing illness, or contraception, in terms of preventing unwanted consequences of sex. But actually, there is nothing quite like it.
