    My Birthing Story

    My Birthing Story

    It’s no secret that childbirth is tough, but the reality of what follows is rarely discussed. While no two birth stories are the same, I want to use my story, which is far from what I could have ever imagined to share exactly what happens, empower others with the truth and to encourage opening up around this conversation. In the absence of any education about the process and knowledge, all too many women just aren’t capable of making informed decisions, or even trusting their own bodies, especially when so many things can change and are out of your control. This week’s Food For Thought is a highly personal one, where I explore my own birth story with midwife and author Marie Louise, also know as The Modern Midwife. Please note, this episode contains some graphic childbirth references.

Here are some additional resources that you may also find helpful; NHS (https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/pregnancy-and-baby/what-happens-during-labour-and-birth/) , Tommy's (https://www.tommys.org/) and The Modern Midwife (https://themodernmidwife.com/) .

    Counting Calories To Lose Weight

    Counting Calories To Lose Weight

    If you happen to be confused about whether calorie counting is effective or not, then you’re definitely not alone. Calories were once the foundation of many diet programmes and even official nutrition advice. Now though calorie counting has fallen by the wayside in the health world, but many individuals are still doing this in the hope they will lose weight. So, should or shouldn't you be counting calories and if you do does it actually contribute towards any weight loss? Whether you’re an avid calorie counter or need further proof of why it’s time to step away from the number crunching, this week’s Food For Thought sees Registered Nutritionist Dr Glenys Jones and I breakdown the truth about calories.

    How To Start Weaning

    How To Start Weaning

    Children need nutritious food every day to grow healthy and strong. Yet feeding them and especially a newborn can be a round-the-clock commitment! While this can be challenging time, it is also a wonderful opportunity to begin forming a close bond with the newest member of the family. Nowadays, nearly everyone has their own opinions on how best to feed their baby and at what time this should be done throughout the day. What can add to even more confusion is the fully stocked supermarket shelves with different formulas and foods, making it hard to know exactly where to begin. This week’s Food For Thought sees Registered Nutritionist, Charlotte Stirling-Reed share exactly what, when and how to feed your baby!

    When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far

    When Healthy Eating Goes Too Far

    Changing your diet to eating more plant-based foods, or simply adding in more fruit and veg can be healthy lifestyle choices. But if your dietary choices begin to add to your worries and bring about fear of eating out or certain foods, it can actually be quite dangerous. Being too healthy can actually be unhealthy. Often dieting plans and restrictive eating can be short-lived, which may then lead to emotional eating and unhealthy food choices. Others find their way back to the middle of the road. But for many, this so-called 'healthy' way of eating can become an undesired obsession and, at its most extreme, an eating disorder. This week’s Food For Thought guest sees Dr Nikki Stamp; surgeon and author explore when healthy actually becomes unhealthy.

    Transforming Mental Health With Fitness

    Transforming Mental Health With Fitness

    Many of us are familiar with the most common barrier to a regular physical activity routine and the lack of time we set aside for exercising. Work, family obligations and other realities of daily life often get in the way of our best intentions to be more active. Now faced with lockdown, we are restricted more than ever, but this still allows us to exercise once a day outside and nothing is stopping us from doing movement at home. Research suggests that those who successfully maintain an exercise routine learn to shift their focus from distant, external outcomes like losing weight to positive, internal experiences such as mental health. This week’s Food For Thought guest sees presenter and personal trainer, Mathew Lewis-Carter and I explore how you can really learn to fall in love with exercise and enjoy the countless benefits that come along with it!

    Balancing Business & Motherhood

    Balancing Business & Motherhood

    As hard as anyone might try, being fully prepared for becoming a mother is a huge task. Combining the demands of running a business with the responsibility of bringing up children is something that I along with many other women face. Increasingly we are seeing women setting themselves higher expectations than ever before to take on everything, with plans to give birth, look after their baby and then immediately go straight back to work. Can this really be possible and what sacrifices are associated with taking on all of these responsibilities. This week’s Food For Thought sees my good friend, Ella Mills, author and founder of Deliciously Ella to discuss the realities of being a modern day working mum!

The Baking Nutritionist ,

A must-listen-to podcast

Food for Thought brings sound advice from experts in the field of nutrition, wellness and health. Rhiannon’s podcast is grounded in science here and myths are debunked to help the public learn about the facts and disregard the fiction that surrounds health, fitness and nutrition. I regularly recommend this podcast to friends! My favourite episode is about training your brain!

Such an informative and educational listen each week with so many wonderful topics that are really interesting.All evidence based and really empowering. I also love Rhiannon’s Instagram account where she gives such great nutrition and lifestyle advice. She is so kind and down to earth and works so hard for everyone. She really helps people to make informed decisions about their health and food choices with no judgement 💚

Love this show

This podcast and Rhi’s Instagram is for everyone who gets bombarded with confusing pseudo-science messages about how we should be eating. I love the evidence based messages from experts in their fields who join Rhi and help myth-bust the rubbish we are subjected to that makes us have an unhealthy relationship with food. I’m thinking my teenage daughter should start listening to this soon too. Please give this show a listen, you won’t regret it.
