    Tips for Healthier Eating from the Fitness Chef

    Through his very popular and accessible infographics on Instagram, the UK's Graeme Tomlinson, aka The Fitness Chef, has built up over half a million followers looking for accessible no nonsense advice around food and weight loss.

    He’s also got a new book out called ‘The Fitness Chef: Eat What You Like & Lose Weight For Life’ and he joins me on the Real Health podcast this week to discuss easy and simple changes you can make to ensure you're eating and living healthily.

    We discuss calories, carbs, protein, when to eat and what not to eat and find out why his post on avocado toast v nutella toast caused such a storm of controversy. Which one has less calories do you think?

    Everything You Need to Know About Going Vegan

    With Veganuary just gone, being vegan is certainly in vogue but what are the pros and cons of a vegan diet?

    To find out the truth, the pros and cons of being vegan and whether it is for you, I’m joined on this week's Real Health by professional dietitian, Maeve Hanan.

    Maeve gives some great tips on making sure your diet is balanced and what kind of foods to focus on - and it's not just about fruit and veg. Plus she addresses the role of a vegan diet for athletes as well as the growing interest from teenagers and 20-somethings.

    The Shift Work-All Hours Survival Episode

    For this week’s Real Health podcast I want to discuss nutrition, exercise and lifestyle in the context of long working days and shift work.

    It can be hard to trying to tick all the boxes between work, family and keeping yourself fit and healthy, but my guest for this episode, Debbie O’Reilly, is an emergency paramedic and former competitive athlete, who knows exactly how hard it can be and has the solution and advice to be your best when you’re slogging through shift work, be it at the frontline or even having to work crazy, long hours to meet your work deadlines.

    With tips on sleep routine, nutrition and hydration there’s plenty to make sure you stay on top of your game even if a twelve hour work day is looming.

    Gerry Hussey and why you need to ask yourself, ‘What's Important Now?’

    Gerry Hussey and why you need to ask yourself, ‘What's Important Now?’

    Gerry Hussey is my guest on this week’s Real Health podcast and to call him a sports psychologist doesn’t do him or the topics we discuss, justice.

    While Gerry does explain the work he does with elite athletes in helping them to succeed, the reality is, what Gerry teaches is applicable to all our lives. It is about making the most from your life, living life fully and asking yourself the hard questions that need to be answered.

    ‘WIN - What’s Important Now?’ are the guiding principles that Gerry discusses with me on the show.

    “Every one of us is only one question away from a major breakthrough,” he says. “Deep in our heart we know what we want. Do you want to spend the rest of your life hiding? Would you not like a chance of really living this one short life? We need to be inspired by a vision of the future. Start making decisions on the person you want to be.”

    Listen and be inspired.

    Many of you will know that I’m a big of walking as a great exercise for both physical and mental well-being and this week’s guest has certainly taken walking even further with her #100daysofwalking, encouraging anyone that can, to do thirty minutes of walking every day for the first 100 days of the year.
