Just like when it comes to healthy and unhealthy fats, the key is to learn which carbs we should and shouldn't be eating. As with most things in life it's about achieving the right balance and avoiding the polar extremes a number of so called, self-appointed experts, would have you believe that's what you need to do.
For the rugby fan the hassle of the match is taken away as your tickets are available at your abode on arrival and are combined with a thermal spa experience, something that you certainly don't get with a normal match day away trip?!!
Without question the pressure of England's top role is immense, the union with the greatest resources and greatest player base in the world should be the one that is pushing the sport forwards and leading the charge. Currently England are not however my great hope is that this appointment is a successful one and one that leads to a very bright future for England Rugby.
if you don't eat the right food to support the hard work you are doing in the gym or out in the park, then in plain terms, "you ain't going to get anywhere fast!" So in order to help you, help yourselves, you need to have a fundamental understanding about a few things nutritional.
Richie McCaw, like the late Jonah Lomu, deserves his place in the history books as one of the greatest to have ever played our game. He has inspired millions around the world and has left the sport in a better place than when be arrived in it. From this day on the All Blacks will not be the same and one thing is for sure, the man stepping into that 7 jersey has some very, very large boots to fill.
Rugby has lost a true gentleman and a great man. There is a warmth in knowing that the most iconic All Black ever saw his nation make history this autumn however at 40 years old Jonah has been taken far, far too soon. Rest In Peace.
Our favourite New Zealand sportsman was in the news once again this weekend for both his rugby and for his extraordinary off-field act of generosity - and he taught us an important lesson on fetishizing in the process.
For 17 years I was meant to "man up and get on with it" and that tends to instil itself in life outside of rugby too... The 21st Century man is under constant pressure to demonstrate strength at the expense of being able to offload troubles.
Watching the last fixture of the Rugby World Cup pool stages on Sunday night between Japan and United States confirmed one. The term 'Tier 2' might need to be re-addressed sooner rather than later...
Perhaps this is going to be a slow process, it certainly seems that way. I'm trying my best to fill that void and find that meaning in my life and I hope that what I am trying to create with the interests I have off field form together to fill that void. They need to as it feels pretty big at the moment.
So yet again England has disappointed in sport. This time it is the Rugby World Cup and our humiliation is compounded by the fact that we are hosti...
After some careful, serious thinking about England's showing in the Rugby World Cup, even nearly a week later, I'm afraid my opinion hasn't fundamentally changed. I still think it would have been better shirtless.
The manner in which Japan defeated South Africa on the first weekend will remain in all of our memories forever; their courage of conviction and their ability to play exactly the right sort of rugby to nullify one of the game's giants...
On Saturday night, in front of our very eyes, a nightmare unfolded as Australia pushed England aside with ruthless precision and condemned the hosts to being surplus to requirements in their own tournament.
First things first; please understand this. One game does not make a career! Not every game goes the way you want it to and rugby, not being a solo sport, means you are but a small cog, in a bigger machine.
Stuart is right, in the face of adversity this England side has never come unstuck or backed down. This squad will be much better for the excruciating manner in which they lost last weekend and we, on the outside, have to trust that some tough lessons have finally been learned.
