I’m feeling a lot better after the awful migraines of the past few days, and my energy levels are definitely up. I can’t quite believe I’ve got this far without really missing the dairy or bread which is such a big part of my normal diet. I’ve had no tea or coffee and have upped my water intake. My morning protein shakes are keeping me satisfied until mid-afternoon. A small snack is enough to keep me going until dinner at around 7.30pm Continue reading “Day 4 – cauliflower rice”

Did You Know?
As we age, our skin’s needs for care and support change in order to keep it looking healthy. Youthful and healthy looking skin appears smooth, radiant, hydrated, even toned, and firm without the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots, and redness.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology: Production of collagen and elastin slows down a dramatic 65% between the ages of 20 and 80. The thickness of the skin decreases a staggering 6% every 10 years. The sun causes 90–95% of wrinkles, lines, as well as brown, red and white discolourations on our bodies.
Our biology and genes account for only about 10% of the visible signs of ageing. In general, the darker the skin, the less visible the signs of ageing. and thicker skin does not show ageing as fast as thinner, more fragile skin types – which is why men’s skin ages more slowly.
The other 90% of our skin age is down to external factors such as smoking, too much alcohol, poor nutrition, and – the biggest culprit – sun exposure. Free radicals are considered to be a major contributor to the ageing process. Free radicals are created by UV exposure, pollution, stress, smoking, and normal metabolic processes. Free radicals bring about changes that lead to the degradation of the skin’s firmness (collagen) and elasticity (elastin) that is characteristic of photo aged skin.
The visible symptoms of extrinsic ageing include: wrinkling, sagging, discolouration, pigmented spots, thin skin, spidery lines, and lack of colour.
We all want radiant, youthful-looking skin. So what can we do to minimise – or reverse – the process? Continue reading “Beat the signs of ageing with targeted nutrition and skincare”

Skin is the body’s largest organ and the one that gets the most attention.
Our skin is “us” – it’s the visible bit that everyone sees. It reflects our emotions, our well-being, our feelings, our health. Blushing, a “deathly pallor”, blue lips, goose-pimples, our skin gives away all our secrets. Including our age!!! Especially our age. Maybe our kidneys age too, but we can’t see the wrinkles on our kidneys, so, unless we need to, who spends time worrying about the state of their internal organs? Our time, energy and money is focused on what we can see.
OK, so skin tells all. We wish it wouldn’t and many of us spend oodles of dosh trying to hide the superficial signs of ageing. But have you ever wondered what happens below the surface? Knowledge is power. The more you understand what’s going on out of sight, the greater your chance of making the right decisions to keep your skin healthy, youthful and glowing. So, today we’re going to dive under your skin to find out what’s going on.
