    Vegetarian Chilli Vegetarian chilli is another classic recipe that every household cook should be able to dish up at any time. This is a really filling dish and great for re-heating for quick meals. As the beans provide protein, this can be eaten as a meal in itself, if you don’t have time to do rice or a baked potato to go with it. ...

    The 8-week blood sugar diet: Dr Michael Mosley

    From Saturday 16th to Thursday 21st January, the Daily Mail ran a serialisation of Dr Michael Mosley’s latest book “The 8-week blood sugar diet”. The first article of the serialisation is here. This introduction seemed intended to scare the life out of people about diabetes (quite rightly – it is a seriously underestimated condition). *


    Dr Michael Mosley’s heart seems to be in the right place and his head has made much progress in recent years. Back in 2009, I did a blog about a BBC TV programme he had hosted, which was all about calories and eating less and/or doing more. Fast forward to 2012 and he was into intermittent fasting.* In July 2014, Mosley admitted he had been wrong about fat. A month later, he was also shattering the exercise myth and then in July 2015 he shared the true fact that ...

    On 15 January 2016, the Royal Society for Public Health (RSPH) called for the introduction of ‘activity equivalent’ calorie labelling on food and drink. Such labelling would show how much activity would be required to burn off the calories contained in the food or drink. But would it?!


    The press release can be viewed here. The call was made in an attempt to help with “the UK’s growing obesity crisis.” According to the press release, the RSPH’s said of activity equivalent labelling: our “own research found two-thirds (63%) of people would support its introduction, with over half (53%) saying it would cause them to make positive behaviour changes such as choosing healthier products, eating smaller portions or doing more physical exercise.” I’ve emailed the PR team to ask for details about the number and profile of people surveyed.


    The full position paper is here. ...

    Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2015

    Did you know that, until the final quarter of the twentieth century, public health dietary advice in the US and the UK focused on minimum intakes, to ensure that populations consumed adequate nutrients? The US 1950s-1970s “Basic Four Foundation Diet” recommended four or more bread and cereal portions daily, two cups or more of milk and two or more servings of meat (Ref 1). The UK favoured micronutrient recommendations; until the first macronutrient guideline was introduced in 1950 with British Medical Association advice that dietary fat intake should provide a minimum of 25% of daily calories (Ref 2).

    New Year Resolutions – how to be the 1 in 12

    Did you make any New Year resolutions? Apparently 25% of people don’t make it beyond the first week of their resolution. This is an interesting summary of resolution choices and outcomes from a study in the Journal of Clinical Psychology.


    This first Monday note of the year will take a look at resolutions: what is the base motivation for humans to change? What do we need to master to achieve change? And what might we be able to achieve as a resolution for 2016...


    The human drive to change


    There are two fundamental drivers of animal behaviour – away from pain and towards pleasure. Humans are no different – we just have a more intelligent understanding of pain ...
