I'm quite surprised at this statement because I love Spanish food, particularly tapas and that idea of trying a little bit of everything. I say that now because I never used to be. It used to be 'right, I've ordered that dish and that's the only dish I want to eat' (perhaps I'm appreciating the idea of sharing more in my mature years!).
Rugby players have become a bit of a benchmark in terms of being seen and perceived as being "big". As such a model to follow and adopt if you are so inclined, which I have to say judging by the mail I get on daily basis, a lot of young men and women want to be - Men mainly just big and muscular, Women toned, defined and shaped.
We all want to look good throughout the year and summer represents a fresh new beginning, where we start to take off our winter layers. Summer's lighter layers and looks however remind us that the stodgy food of the festive cold season has left us with unwanted weight gain and dull looking skin, hair and eyes.
In our society, it seems like it is a constant obsession to try to get fit yet all the time reverting back to the food and entertainment forms that are so prevalent. Every single family get together, every holiday, every celebration is centered on food and drink. Most of the time gluttonous food and drink!
There is a lot to be said for making small manageable changes to the way you eat and seeing your weight drop gradually, rather than embracing the latest fad diet and giving up all the foods you love. For a start it is a lot easier because you don't feel you are on a diet with all the stress that entails. You can make changes at your own pace to suit your lifestyle.
