Unless you are a cow or want to be the size of one – stop grazing!
Nigella Lawson is well known for her love of food and eating – but she says, ‘I’m not really a grazer. I like proper meals.’ She
gets pleasure from being absorbed in the experience. This is the opposite of the mindless grazing we see so much at work, on the street, in front of screens.
Don’t fall into The Snack Trap – eat well at meal times.
October is Cholesterol Awareness month – what better way to deal with your cholesterol than to cut out sugary/floury snacks?
After mocking the reign of terrible science on TV news shows and in public debate:
“After a certain point, all that ridiculous information can make you wonder: Is science bullshit? To which the answer is clearly no, but there’s a lot of bullshit masquerading as science.”

He noticed walking down the street that people weren’t smiling. You’ll see the same thing here, even though we have everything – a roof over our heads, food on the table, clothes, technology.
During the holidays this year, smile and make a note every day of something you are thankful for – or better still, three things.
And get outside – even if you just sit in your own garden or visit the local park; anywhere with trees and plants to cheer you.
The UK, South Africa (where Prof practices), Australia and America have similar official dietary guidelines based on a flawed, misinterpreted American study from the 1950s. The result has been damage to the health of the populations of these countries for many years.
The world is waking up to the influence of the food industry on our governments and this incredible 4y legal case has exposed the way they work to undermine and discredit health practitioners who don’t toe the official line. With overwhelming evidence on his side, Tim has won which gives hope that things may now improve for everyone.

Nutrition is king, exercise is queen. Put them together and you’ve got a kingdom.
He who takes medicine and neglects diet wastes the skill of his doctors.
You can’t drug people into being healthy!
Dr Aseem Mahotra
Together with Sir Richard Thompson (the Queen’s doctor from 1984-2005), Aseem spoke in the European Parliament on over medication of the British people and how ineffective much of it is. The bulk of ill health is lifestyle caused and therefore diet can have a strong beneficial effect especially with diseases of insulin resistance like diabetes, heart disease and obesity.
