How to Eat 30g of Fibre A Day. Podcast Episode 20.

Recent Research Shows that Eating Lots of Fibre Decreases All-Cause Mortality

The paper “Carbohydrate quality and human health: a series of systematic reviews and meta-analyses” was published in the Lancet.

It showed that eating 25-30g of fibre a day decreases your risk of dying from all causes.

To quote from the study:

“Observational data suggest a 15–30% decrease in all-cause and cardiovascular related mortality, and incidence of coronary heart disease, stroke incidence and mortality, type 2 diabetes, and colorectal cancer when comparing the highest dietary fibre consumers with the lowest consumers.”

How to Love Your Life Without Alcohol. Podcast Episode 16

Alcohol is widely accepted in society today. It’s considered normal to drink large amounts of alcohol because it’s fun and helps us to socialise.

We’ve all been there. I don’t know about you but I look back on my University years and my liver shudders. Medical students are some of the worst offenders when it comes to alcohol consumption.

Alcohol is Bad For Us

The sad thing is that alcohol is bad for us. I know many people don’t like to think about it but alcohol damages our bodies.

Much easier just to pour yourself another beer and forget about the consequences.

Alcohol is a risk factor for many cancers. Drinking alcohol in excess damages our livers, pancreas, hearts and immune system.

(For more horrible details of what alcohol can do, check out this article.)

What is “Excess” Alcohol?

The problem is that none of us think we drink in excess. We think everyone else drinks...

How to Create Habits that Serve You. And Help You Live a Healthy, Amazing Life. Podcast Episode 15.

We are creatures of habit. We do most of our daily actions out of habit. Without thinking.

This means that habits can help us feel better, get more fit and healthy.

Or they can make us feel worse. Eating out of habit. Not exercising out of habit.

Once we’re “in a habit”, it’s easy to maintain.

But why do we so often think, “I can’t be bothered to create that habit”?

Often it’s because we can’t see the benefit in that small action.

We only look at the “10 minute walk” and think, “how is that going to make a difference?”

How to Make Habits That Serve You Podcast

The Compound Affect of Habits

Instead of looking at the result of doing the habit once, we have to look at the result of doing the habit over a longer period of time.

What will happen if I do 10 minutes of yoga every day for a year?

Rather than looking at just 10 minutes of yoga.

How Magic Words Change Your Actions. Podcast Episode 14.

 

The way we talk to ourselves can have a powerful impact on the actions we take.

I introduced the “thought/ emotions/ action” circle in podcast episode 2, “Letting Go of Anger”.

Change Your Actions with Magic Words Podcast

We Want to Feel Emotions Without Being Overwhelmed

A great analogy is being on a raft in the “river of emotions”. When we are overwhelmed by emotions, we’re swept along with the current.

When we understand how our emotions work, we’re able to steer our raft down the river. The swirls of emotions will affect our raft, but we’ll be able to steer it where we want to go.

My Kids Demonstrate How We Talk to Ourselves Affects Our Actions

Kids can teach us so much about how our minds work.

When my daughter was learning to ride a bike, she kept telling herself that she couldn’t do it. Despite the fact that she could.

Another example is my son who tells himself that he doesn’t like certain foods....

How to Make Big Changes. Podcast Episode 12

It's easy to let the stresses of life overwhelm us. Our lives in modern society are busy and stuffed full of "things to do". We often don't even notice the underlying stress.

How to Make Big Changes Podcast

Today I want to tell you how I realised that I was in a chronic state of stress and anxiety. I wasn't showing up as the parent, wife or person that I wanted to be.

At times overwhelmed swept over me. Leaving me frustrated and angry.

I snapped at my kids. 

I whined at my husband.

I sabotaged myself.

Why Do We Get Stuck in Negative Behaviour?

Why would I do that you ask?

Because our brains are wired to be negative. It's easy to get into a spiral of negative thinking.

When you're aware of it, you can stop it and replace it with helpful and positive behaviour.

My journey started when I looked at my family and wanted to create a "harmonious and loving family".

I started by working on myself. Including loving myself and prioritising my own needs.

Reducing Your Risk of Cancer Through Diet with Dr Mhairi Morris. Podcast Episode 11

We all want to reduce our risk of getting cancer. It can be difficult to wade through the conflicting advice and sensational headlines.

Today I am talking to Dr Mhairi Morris, lecturer at Loughborough University UK and founder of Essential Cancer Education.

Mhairi explains (in simple terms) the current research. Which foods and diets will increase your risk of cancer, which won’t and which need more research to decide.

Cancer and Diet Podcast

High fiber foods such as strawberries, bananas, wheat, apple and cereal which have been proven to lower the risk of cancer #healthyliving #healthyeating #healthylifestyle #howtobehealthy #healthylifetips #anticancer #anticancerdiets #anticancerfood #anticancerdietplan #howtoreducecancer #reducecancerrisk #anticancermeals

Good Cancer Diets

There is enough evidence to say that these diets can help reduce our risk of getting cancer.

  1. Ketogenic (high fat diet that works on keto genesis rather than carbohydrate metabolism)
  2. Mediterranean Style Diet (see Episode 1 The Health Benefits of the Med Style Diet.)
  3. Intermittent Fasting

You can combine intermittent fasting with either the ketogenic or Med Style Diets.
