Top 10 Fit and Fabulous Podcasts Episodes

Can you believe that the Fit and Fabulous podcast is over 6 months old? Part of me feels like I've been podcasting forever. The other part feels like it's only been 2 minutes.

Why Fit and Fabulous?

The "reason" behind the podcast is to show you that what you do influences your health and wellness. We have it in our hands to lead a healthy and amazing life.

Many people think that it's "too difficult", or they'll "get to it another day".

I want to inspire you to start now!

I want to show you that what you do does affect your health. And that you can make changes that are EASY and FUN!

I'm all about "easy", especially when it comes to cooking for my 4 kids! (None of them like the same things. In fact, it feels like some of them don't like anything.)

Top Take Home Messages of Fit and Fabulous

Here are the things that I like to chat about.

  1. Specific illnesses and how we can avoid them.
  2. What is a healthy life? We look at nutrition, exercise, sleep and mindfulness.

How to Avoid Osteoporosis. Podcast Episode 28.

Interview with Dr Joanna Bayley on osteoporosis. Dr Jo explains what osteoporosis is and how to avoid it.

How to Avoid Osteoporosis Podcast

What is Osteoporosis?

Osteoporosis is a weakening of the bones that happens as we get older. We normally think of our bones as a “static structure”. Actually our bones are constantly breaking down and remodelling. This is good news if you break a bone. It allows the bone to fix itself. In osteoporosis, the balance between breaking down and remodelling gets unbalanced. There is too much breaking down and not enough remodelling.

We become more at risk of fractures, especially in the spine, hip and wrists.

The Symptoms of Osteoporosis

One of the big problems is that people don’t have any sysmptoms until they have a fracture.

There are treatments available to stop it getting worse. But it’s best if we can avoid osteoporosis in the first place.

People at Higher Risk of Osteoporosis

People start to become at risk of...

How to Be Like Your Skinny Friend Who Can Eat Anything. Podcast Episode 27


How to Be Like Your Skinny Friend Who Can Eat Anything.

Do you have a skinny friend who can eat anything? And you wonder how they manage it? You watch them wolfing down cake at a birthday party and think how unfair it is! How come they don’t put on weight whereas you avoid cake and still put on weight!

Do You Know How Your Skinny Friend Lives Her Life?

When you look at a snap shot of someone’s life, it’s easy to make assumptions about how they eat and live. A bit like social media. People tend to put the highlights of their life on social media.

You need to consider how your skinny friend lives her entire life. How she eats (other than when she’s at a party.) How much sleep and exercise she gets. How stressed she is.

Our gut flora, our “biome”, also plays a large part how our bodies put on weight.

It’s easy to watch your friend eating a piece of cake, without understanding their entire lives.

How Frequently We Eat also Affects Our...

What is Mindful Eating and How Can It Help Me? Podcast Episode 23 with Catherine Russo Epstein

Introduction to Mindful Eating

Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment without judgement. When we apply mindfulness to eating it helps us to slow down and appreciate our food.

Catherine Russo Epstein explains the benefits of mindful eating and how to get started.

What is Mindful Eating?

Mindfulness is awareness of the present moment without judgement.

In simple terms, that means being aware of your thoughts, feelings and emotions without judgement.

Mindful eating is bringing mindfulness to our eating.

Eating and food is an emotional experience for all of us (to a bigger or smaller way.)

As you become aware of these emotions and feelings around food, you can change them.

Some Emotional Eating Is Normal

Our society celebrates with food. Parties and eating are a normal part of emotional eating.

Often we eat when we want to avoid an emotion (for that’s boredom!)

A bit of emotional eating is normal. The danger is when emotional eating leads you to over eat.

Everything You Need to Know About Gluten. With Dr Ashvy Bhardwarj. Podcast Episode 22

Podcast with Dr Ash

Introduction to Gluten

Gluten is a controversial area. Many experts think that gluten is hugely inflammatory and contributes to many diseases. 

We know that people with coeliac disease can't tolerate gluten. But what about people who don't have coeliac disease?

Should they exclude all gluten?

In today's episode Dr Ash explains what gluten is, how it can affect our bodies and what we should do to find our "gluten threshold".

What is Gluten?

A protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

What is Coeliac Disease?

Coeliac Disease is an autoimmune condition. It can be described as a “severe gluten allergy”.

People who are diagnosed with coeliac disease are on a life long gluten free diet. If you have coeliac disease and eat gluten it can affect your body and make you unwell. (Even if you don’t notice it.)

Coeliac Disease Is Difficult to Diagnose

Coeliac Disease (aka “Celiac Disease”) can be difficult to diagnose. Partly as the symptoms...

How to Handle Other People's Judgement of You. Podcast Episode 21

How to Handle Other People’s Judgment of You

What happens when you feel you’re being judged by other people?

Today I want to share a story of one of my clients. She had a friend to stay for the weekend. She noticed that she felt stressed having her friend to stay. It wasn’t that she was worried about feeding her friend. She realised that she felt judged by her friend. About her weight, her house, her life.

About everything.

Her friend likes to tell stories about other people which she feels are a coded message to her. She believes her friend is trying to change her, but not in a helpful way.

The Results of Feeling Judged

Feeling stress meant that my client ate far more snack food than normal. She drank more alcohol than normal.

Generally she didn’t feel good.

And who wants that?

We want to feel fit and fabulous!

What Are Emotions?

The first thing to point out is that our emotions are our emotions. Yes I realise that’s obvious. But the point is that we...
