One of the commonest New Year’s resolution is to go on a diet. For many that triggers thoughts of starvation or eating only lettuce for a month but it shouldn’t have to be!
Eating healthy is simple, for example why not grill meat instead of frying. Swap that mid morning biscuit with a piece of fruit. Keep hydrated with water rather than soda and swap that cheese toastie with a fresh nutritious salad 🥗
With such small and simple changes, eating healthy will be easy and fun and most importantly rewarding for your health.

“Doc, how do I loose weight? 🤔” Is a question I hear all the time.
With summer just around the corner it’s time to get into shape.
From the Atkins diet to the South Beach diet, there are loads of ways to loose weight.
Many of these diets often cause a quick reduction in weight due to the loss of fluid in the body, rather than fat. The best and safest way to loose weight is with traditional exercise and eating healthy balanced meals.
Exercise can be fun and it’s suggested that you do at least 30 minutes of activity 5 times in a week to get your heart pumping. That could be anything from a brisk walk to kick boxing!
Let’s get fit for summer together 💪
Remember to always seek the advice of your medical doctor before going on any exercise plans. As always, if you have any questions feel free to pop by and see me in clinic.
