Mr Cowell for me is a straight talker, he sees through the waffle, and he doesn't suffer fools gladly, something we share in common. And to be likened to a man that is massively talented is of course an honour.

Sugar can often feel very addictive, and many believe it is. When we eat sugar, dopamine is released, the 'reward' brain chemical.

I specialise in nutrition, fitness and wellbeing and my no-nonsense approach to therapy means my concepts behind change can sometimes be controversial. I-practise-what-I-preach and I'm a strong advocate for those who follow their own advice, but I'm frustrated... especially when it comes to hypnotherapy and weight loss.
