Nutrition Neurosis or Why We're Losing the War With Food

Alkalising diets, muscle building menus and detoxifying eating regimes are all things I get asked about on a daily basis nowadays. Everyone seems so confused or at least uncertain as to where the right path to healthy eating really lies. If you workout the need for good nutrition is more than twice as important.

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall, Am I Sweet Enough?

"A woman has the age she deserves" - These words come from none other than Coco Chanel. She knew the value of living well inside your skin. Living with a sweet tooth can be worse for you than you think. We all know sweet treats add inches to the waistline, but did you know that chocolate could also give you wrinkles?

So What Will Mayweather's Crowning Glory Be Now That Marquez Has Stolen His Thunder?

Mayweather v Pacquiao for all of the marbles would have been the perfect end to the career of probably the most gifted and extraordinarily talented fighter since the peak Roy Jones.

Jennifer Livingston - The Obesity Enabler Who Inspires a Nation to be Fat!

Our main objective then as individuals should be to stay the heck out of hospitals! We also should be helping others to do the same by living healthily. Obesity is a choice, granted it may be an economically influenced one in some cases (people who eat junk tend to be less educated than those who do not) but by putting a fast food shop in walking distance of every school are we really being smart?
