Reversing Type 2 Diabetes

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Mar 29, 02:09 PM in and . No comments.

You may have seen the “reversing Diabetes” reports and books coming out in the media/press right now. New results coming out from a UK study, this month, have also shown that people can reverse their Type 2 Diabetes with a strict low calorie diet regime. The research is part of a growing body of evidence showing that people with Type 2 diabetes who successfully lose weight can reverse their condition because fat is removed from their pancreas, returning insulin production to normal. But can it be done?

Wake up with sunshine lemon

Posted on Feb 11, 03:39 PM in and . Comments [2].

It’s funny how things come around. Years ago, when I first became a Nutritionist/Dietitian, (goodness, it was over 20 years ago!), we used to say that the whole lemon in water idea was nonsense. Over the years, however, we have been able to get an idea of just how good a glass of lemon water can be. A glass of water with a squeeze of lemon in it can:

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?

Food Memories - a lasting impact

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Sep 21, 02:04 PM in and . No comments.

I was looking at some nutrition papers for any new information to share and found a study on pistachios. The study was interesting but to be honest, I was a little less interested in the study than I was in thinking about my strong food memories of pistachios when I was first introduced to them as a child. I think I must have been around ten and my parents brought a large bag of the lovely little green and purple tinged delights back from a trip to Canada. At this stage, none of us had ever heard of them and they were new, exciting and delicious. I have never forgotten that and still think of that first time whenever I start cracking open those little shells.

FODMAPs - why go it alone?

by Anne Myers-Wright RD/APD

Posted on Sep 18, 10:55 AM in and . No comments.

You may have heard of the low FODMAP diet, the Australian “invented” diet which has an impressive 75% success rate in significantly reducing IBS symptoms. Lately I’ve been quite concerned to hear that a lot of people have been trying to “go it alone” on the low FODMAP diet. I’ve even been hearing from clients that their GPs have diagnosed them with IBS and then suggested they google FODMAPs in order to follow the diet. While following the diet can give such great results, it can also be a confusing and difficult process without the help of a Dietitian.

Got my Kefir on

Posted on Mar 5, 12:58 AM in and . No comments.

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.
