What if I said that there was a way to take better control of the foods you eat, to really understand what you can and can't eat as an individual eat? What if I said that you could have better insight about the foods or ingredients that affect you if at all?

I wrote in December about doing Christmas brilliantly. I hope everyone did and had a great time. Part of that ramble was saying that Christmas is an opportunity to end the year well and start a new one well. Ending something well has become a bit of a theme over the last few weeks for a number of reasons.

Balancing My Love for Girly Stuff: A Feminist Battle

There are some feminine rituals that I will never rid myself of. I believe that feminism is fluid and accepts all changes that have to be made. I live in a society that is basically founded on patriarchy and sexist oppression. Adjusting to make your own life a little easier is not selling out. Reform and re-structure is also a form of revolution.

I'm trying to eat more fish, partly because it's good for you, partly because I'm trying to lose weight but mostly because it's delicious. I'm not sure this one qualifies for the dieting category as it contains loads of butter, but it tastes light, which is good enough for me (and probably explains why my diets always fail). Don't let that put you off though.

I shudder even at the thought of giving up my accomplishment - achieving extreme natural weight loss, as well as the fitness, healthy relationship with food and self-control I've gained through doing it. The more I think about it, the more I feel I would aggressively tell my former self not to even think about having a gastric band.

George Woolfrey

How are you? No, how are you really? Because just for today, you can legitimately respond with something other than, "Fine thanks." I may not be the first person to point out to you that today is Blue Monday, supposedly "the most depressing day of the year". Well, shut the front door; it's not. The term was coined back in 2005 as part of an advertising campaign, and has been spreading misunderstanding ever since. A quick Google will tell you that the whole concept is a load of rubbish and has about as much scientific basis as Ghostbusters.
