    Why Fat Won't Make You Fat

    Why Fat Won't Make You Fat

    For years we’ve been told fat is bad and that we all need to reduce the amount we consume, especially when it comes to saturated and trans fats. However, recent campaigns have switched from demonising fat to making sugar the culprit of weight gain. With so many people weighing in on the topic and an excess of information available, finding out the truth about fat can be a significant challenge. It can be difficult to understand exactly what the causes are for becoming overweight and what the best ways to achieve weight loss are. This week’s Food For Thought is with Wendy Hall who is a Registered Nutritionist and the Nutrition Society’s Theme Leader in Whole Body Metabolism to help us find out if fat really does make us fat.

    How To Overcome Anxiety

    How To Overcome Anxiety

    Anxiety is that feeling of unease, worry or fear, and I think most people have experienced how terrifying both the physical and mental symptoms can be. Issues like debilitating headaches, shortness of breath can make even the simplest daily tasks feel like impossible undertakings. Even acute instances of anxiety ― think job or financial stress ― can lead to the same symptoms and feelings. Thankfully, there are ways to treat and manage the issue. This week’s Food For Thought with psychotherapist Anna Mathur explores how we can reframe our anxieties and change the nature of your mental health to be positive.

    Breaking The Biggest Fitness Stigmas

    Breaking The Biggest Fitness Stigmas

    There remains such huge stigma surrounding women who do certain types of fitness. The belief that the likes of strength training will quickly transform you into an incredibly masculine version of yourself holds back so many from achieving their personal bests. And, in this age of Instagram, where workouts are released every day, it can be all too easy to get side-tracked with ideas that may not actually be right for you. This week’s Food For Thought sees myself and personal trainer, Lucy Mountain who is calling out the deceptions in the fitness and food industry break through some of the biggest stigmas.

    The Biggest Women's Health Myths

    Do you ever feel uncomfortable amongst your peers or colleagues, simply because some topics are left unspoken about and seen unmentionable?

    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. For more information, visit Rhitrition.com (http://rhitrition.com/) and Instagram.com/Rhitrition (http://instagram.com/Rhitrition) .

    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.

Evidenced based, quality podcast

A podcast well worth listening to whether you are someone looking to make positive, healthy food changes, working within the fitness industry or as a practitioner of dietetics. Love how Rhiannon dispels myths based on facts rather than popular opinion. I recommend this podcast to my clients who are looking to change their eating habits in a mindful, healthy way.
