5 reasons why good nutrition is so important

By | Nutrition | No Comments

What is proper nutrition?

Good nutrition plays an important role in our lives.

It can help guard against malnutrition and help prevent diseases such as obesity, diabetes and cancer.

Unfortunately, in 2017, many people within Britain have a diet consisting largely of saturated fat, trans fat, sugar and sodium.

They should instead be consuming healthy choices such as fruits and vegetables. The food we put into our bodies reflects onto our health.

Running for weight loss

Can you lose weight running?

It always seems a real shame, and frankly a big loss, when people run purely for weight-loss.

After all, once you have overcome the initial inertia, and running becomes part of a regular routine, the benefits can be multiple.

Running can be social, it can help to reconnect you with nature, it’s a great stress reliever and helps in any number of ways.

But unless you are blessed with an iron discipline or fantastic genes, weight-loss can be an added bonus.

To maximise the weight-loss though, there are a few tweaks you may need to make to your running routine.

Why belly fat matters

Belly fat, nobody wants it. Finally, we’ve had what feels like proper summer days. Glorious sunshine and blue skies, an opportunity to dust down the summer wardrobe.

The first reaction is usually one of sheer vanity. You just don’t like the way it makes you look.

It then starts to affect mood, and after a while, you start to ponder possible health implications.

Unfortunately, belly fat, in particular, is related to a number of health issues. So what can we do about it?

Science and fat-loss

By | Fat loss | No Comments

What happened to losing weight this year?

Fat-loss or weight-loss, call it what you like. Many trends and fashions may change each year, but one thing stays constant, most of us just want to shed a few pounds.

At the time of writing we are over two weeks into the new year. The New Year’s resolutions were made with renewed vigour. But according to a Washington Post article, over a quarter of us will have abandoned our resolutions after just 7 days.

And part of the reason we give up trying to lose excess fat is that it just seems so darn complicated. So to help out, here are a few things science can teach us about fat loss.
