Exercise: what it can and what it won’t do

The prevalence of sedentary behaviour in women increases as they age, with over one third of all women engaging in no exercise1.

Avoiding winter weight gain

Emma before and after

Reduced-sugar products – still too much?

Regular, reduced-sugar, or diet - Water is best.

There were two problems with this: the first was that often the amount of fat reduced was minimal; and the second was that removing fat also removed flavour, […]
