Gnashing and grinding of teeth.

29 January 2018

It can be easy to overlook the importance of our teeth and their role in being well nourished and yet without our gnashers, we would not be able to enjoy crunching apples, biting bread or tearing at meat.Our teeth and their health is set before we are born, when our mothers provide us with the…

Only the lonely

22 January 2018

I read the other day that up to 9 million people now live alone in the UK.Whilst this does not mean that there are 9 million people craving company, it is quite clear that unwanted “aloness” can have a negative impact on food intake and enjoyment.You see, food is not just about nourishment but it…

Reasons to be cheerful

15 January 2018

Today has been described as blue Monday.

Robins are territorial, dietitians are not!

18 December 2017

I was reflecting on dietetic life with an old chum last week and I recalled as a young and newly qualified dietitian how I had been left high and dry to deal with a baby newly diagnosed with PKU. I couldn’t find any information in the department as the paediatric dietitian had locked all the…

Past your sell by date, says who?

04 December 2017

The dictionary definition of this phrase refers to someone who is no longer considered useful as they are too old. I don`t think i have ever met anyone of any age who fits that description, my mum lived until she was nearly 96 and she was useful to me until the day she died. Miss…

Too much of a good thing

27 November 2017

I was foolish enough to venture into a high street health food shop with my sister last week. She wanted to return her purchase of vitamin D as the tablets were 1.5 times the recommended daily supplement, as advised by the specialist advisory committee on nutrition (2016).A refund was not forthcoming, even though the bottle…

Visceral fat, unseen by us all and yet a real risk to our health.There are 2 types of fat stored in our bodies, that which is stored under our skin (subcutaneous fat) and internal fat (visceral fat).Subcutaneous fat defines our body shape and is not thought to have the same health risks as visceral fat,…

Bangers and mash..

06 November 2017

Well it was bonfire night last night and it was like a war zone in my local area. I won`t make any comment on the fate of poor Guy Fawkes,  but suffice to say that i think it quite extraordinary that someone who plotted to bring down the government of the day remains famous more…

Trick or treat?

31 October 2017

Tonight my door bell will chime constantly alerting me to an army of small children dressed in ghoulish outfits chanting “trick or treat”.

Food can affect how we feel in many ways. It can comfort us when we are feeling low, think chocolate!It can make us feel bad if we think we have eaten too much again think chocolate!Sometimes food memory can make us feel good or bad, for instance being on a diet can feel like martyrdom and…

Apples and pears – which one is better for you?

09 October 2017

It is body shape I am talking about, as both apples and pears are really good to include in our 5 a day.No, there is evidence that our body shape, the places we store fat, can be an indicator or future health or illness.Pear shaped people tend to store their fat on the hips and…

The good, the bad and the ugly – cholesterol that is

02 October 2017

Apparently October is cholesterol month so I thought it would be good to take a quick look at this important issue and set the scene for the month. Cholesterol is really important to us humans.
