I arrived in London on the Friday afternoon and caught up with one of Otto's dads. He filled me in on Otto's new routine, changes in Otto (Otto's got a bad eye, thanks to the mass of rumpled skin there. He's awaiting surgery). Otto's developed a new muscular physique. I can only presume he's been working out to impress the girl-dogs. He continues to look like a child's cartoon of a dog...

For about five months, my 'writing about health' thing has moved over to Instagram. And while it is an amazing platform, it doesn't do justice to the complexity and importance of understanding the science and the why behind a lot of what I choose to do.

Before you begin to worry about what you'll eat, it's a lot easier than you would think. All big supermarket chains carry a variety of vegetarian friendly food including mince, sausages and even ready meals. I'm not going to pretend that vegetarian bacon tastes remotely like the real thing, but generally speaking most vegetarian products are great.
