These are the people who walk in to street lights because they're writing that oh-so-important-if-I-don't-send-it-right-now-the-whole-world-will-come-crashing-down-and-I'll-spend-the-rest-of-me-life-eating-beans-on-toast-for-dinner email on their phone and not looking where they're going.
With April Fools' Day doing its best to upset the news agenda this week - at times on Tuesday it was hard to work out what was true, and what was the work of some reporter's overactive imagination - sifting through the inside pages required a healthy dose of skepticism. Our hearts and bodies got a lot of column space this week, with health headlines dominated by the news that it's seven portions of fruit and veg we need a day, not the five we originally thought.

Arriving by speedboat transfer, then whisked through a world of white sandy beaches and lush tropical greenery, I felt terribly glamorous - like I'd arrived on the set of a Bond film. I know I have a wild imagination, but it sure beats a taxi...
Brain research suggests that it really depends upon which part of your brain is most active. Neuroscientists have found that when they stimulate certain areas of the brain with electrical impulses, they can get their subjects to learn more rapidly, solve problems that previously eluded them, and most recently, to be more appreciative of art.
The key here is to eat. Don't skimp on anything. Just make sure what you eat helps burn that belly fat. And here's the good news. Not only are there plenty of foods you can choose from to help you along the way, but belly fat is an area we can lose weight from quickly, if you target it properly.
