Olive oil has been used for 6,000 years in the Mediterranean area where there are lower cases of cardiovascular diseases compared to Western areas and other parts of the world.

Tips in Choosing Olive Oil

  • Make sure it's extra virgin
  • Take note of the date of production. Ideally, it should be within one year of purchase
  • Buy your olive oil locally

The Best Way to Consume Olive Oil

Make sure that you eat olive oil amongst a healthy diet.

Eat olive oil with lots of vegetables, fish, and legumes.

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.

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.)

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