As your friend, I wanted to let you know about the dangers of sugar.
I recently picked up this fantastic read by Dr John Yudkin “Pure, White and Deadly” which gives a fascinating insight to the dangers of sugar consumption and its increased use worldwide.
Did you know, there is no physiological requirement for humans to have sugar? This means we can get all of our nutritional needs without having a single spoon of white, brown or raw sugar. More worryingly, if only a small fraction of what is already known about the effects of sugar were to be revealed in relation to any other material used as a food additive, that material would be banned.
It certainly has made me rethink my outlook on sugar, and if you’re not one for reading, I’ll be sure to do a summary video soon on drnora.com.
So next time you reach out for that mid afternoon biscuit take a moment to think, ‘what benefit is this having on my body?’ Take care and stay healthy 😘
I love eating healthy and I truly believe that healthy eating leads to a healthy mind and body.
Today I’m having a salmon and avocado salad. Salmon is rich in omega 3 fatty oils which is fantastic for the brain, mood and vision. It’s also high in protein and loaded with other essential minerals. Avocado is also full to the brim with healthy fats and vitamins. These are all essential for a healthy heart and general wellbeing.
Lunch doesn’t have to be fancy, just chop up a few bits and pieces and bon appétit 👌
It’s time to work out 🏋️♀️🤺🤸♂️ Australia is silently suffering from an obesity epidemic. With 1 in 4 Australian children now either obese or overweight and nearly 2 thirds of adults overweight or obese it’s time to take action.
These are scary statistics which can be avoided with education on healthy eating and exercise.
Being obese or overweight leads to an increased risk of type 2 diabetes and heart disease to name a few.
So the next time you’re thinking about spending the day indoors grazing in front of Netflix why not take a walk outside, enjoy some of the beautiful sites and fresh fruit and veg Australia has to offer.
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.
