Don’t set yourself up to fail

“I’m on the see-food diet ...I see food and then I eat it” We really do eat with our eyes. Have you ever noticed that you are much more tempted to eat the chocolates or the sweet treats when they are sitting on your desk at work or when they are out and visible in your kitchen?

Usually I ask them to focus on their health instead of their weight - getting them to start thinking about nourishing their body with lots of veggies etc. rather than worrying about calories or

Understanding IBS

Irritable bowel syndrome (or IBS) is a horrible condition to live with. The constant cramping, bloating, bouts of diarrhoea/constipation, pain and discomfort that comes along with this condition can make life very difficult for sufferers. Yet the worst thing about the condition is that the public health service has been unable to offer much in the way of treatment. The usual anti-spasmotic tablets or peppermint capsules and prescribed to individuals who are also told that there is no cure for their condition.
