Obesity Crisis

I’ve had to think a long time about what I am going to write about National Obesity Week or, indeed, if I was going to write anything at all.

3 reasons why Dietitians are unlikely to give you a meal plan

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jun 3, 03:23 PM in and . Comments [2].

Often when people come to visit me, they are asking for or expecting a 7 or 14 day “meal plan”.

“Oh, don’t tell me what to do. I just need a meal plan” is what I hear, quite often.

This is a sentence Dietitians dread.

In fact, Dietitians are very unlikely to give you these kinds of meal plans for 3 main reasons:

A healthy festive season - part 1

Surviving the festive season- part 1
Advent calendars are being whipped out all over the country and people are preparing for the onslaught of the “festive season”. The festive season is a dangerous time when it comes to letting your guard down and the loosening up of healthy habits. There are parties, dinners, baking, the stressful rushing around, less activity due to the cold and those lovely Xmas treats everywhere. It doesn’t help that mince pies and sweets have been pushed on us by the supermarkets since November.

Why moderation isn’t as boring as it sounds.

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Jan 21, 01:21 PM in and . Comments [1].

Sometimes being a Dietitian just isn’t “sexy”. No, seriously! We can sound like old stick in the muds, trotting out the old “everything in moderation” line when others in the wide and varied world that is nutrition; may be encouraging that “new” lifestyle diet, (you know what I’m sayin’ – ala the newest super food, paleo, raw, sugar free, “clean”). These new super shiny “lifestyles” can sound like just the thing……
“From now, I’ll only eat “clean” and never let the poison that is- (insert latest “bad” food group here)- touch my lips. My body is a temple “.……..sounds good, doesn’t it?

Looking for the Ultimate Cholesterol Lowering Diet? Find it during National Cholesterol Month.

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Oct 18, 01:02 PM in and . No comments.

October is National Cholesterol Month in UK and time to remind ourselves about the disturbing UK coronary heart disease statistics. When it comes to causes of death in UK, Coronary Heart Disease (CHD) is the big hitter. It is simply the biggest single killer in the UK alone. 2015 statistics show that almost 70, 000 deaths each year are due to CHD. Scotland and the North of England, where I live, have the highest rates in the nation.
So what can we do about it?

I finally went and got myself some Kefir grains so I can try out homemade brewing of the stuff.

Kefir? You ask. Kefir is pretty much a fermented milk drink. (I am using milk Kefir, although there is a”water” version of it as well.).

When you hear fermented milk drink, basically think ….probiotic drink.

Sorry honey, it's sugar!

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Mar 4, 03:46 AM in and . Comments [1].

One of my Dietitian friends recently reviewed a “low sugar” cookbook that is currently being marketed by a UK “personality”. It turns out the recipes are pretty much full of sugar, in the form of honey in most cases. At the end of the review article, were many, many comments about honey not being sugar. I often see “low sugar” recipes which use honey as the sweetener and am sorry to say, yes, it’s a sugar.
