Now that it’s spring , it’s an excellent time to do a little cleaning…of your diet! I don’t know about you, but my winter was filled with a lot of heavy stuff like takeaways and casseroles loaded with red wine. We diss the diet culture here at No.1 Media, but with so much differing advice, and so many people challenging you to change your diet for the new decade, especially now we are focussing on our health in the midst of the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, it’s hard to tell which eating plan is the right one for you, your body and your beliefs.
We have a better solution than a fad diet or whacky collection of vitamins. We are welcoming Multi-Award Winning Nutrition Expert Laura Warren from Elite Living Nutrition to our team as our dedicated nutrition expert. You can visit her website here
Most of us are feeling sluggish and frumpy after overindulging with all the lockdowns so March is the perfect the perfect time to hit the reset button and get to work on a healthy new regime.
The problem, for many people, is knowing where to start. We are traditionally bombarded all year with an avalanche of fitness plans and diet fads, which can leave you feeling a little overwhelmed.

Her new website – http://www.elitelivingnutrition.com – features delicious recipes and fantastic tips on health and nutrition.
Laura says: “People have obviously been under a lot more pressure since the pandemic hit and this has impacted on many areas of their lives, including their financial, mental and physical well-being.
“It’s natural during difficult times such as these for some people to indulge in binge eating and drinking, in many cases choosing the types of food that may initially unlock endorphins that give instant gratification – or ‘food high’ – but ultimately depresses the immune system and contributes to obesity.”
A recent report by Safefood, the State’s leading food health authority, found the Covid crisis was having a detrimental impact on children’s eating habits and sleep patterns. The survey found 49% were eating more unhealthy snacks or treats, 54% were less active and 67% were engaging in more screen-time, all of which can contribute to childhood obesity.
Laura adds: “It makes me sad to see obesity levels rising so much, especially among children, and I’m very pleased to be able to give something back in my own small way. I’ve been very fortunate to travel the world and experience many wonderful cultures and food which in turn installed a great hunger in me to enjoy and appreciate life and my food.
“Modern lifestyles have become extremely hectic and stressful for many people and, even aside from Covid-19, it’s never been more important to have a strong immune system to fuel your body and give it the strength to fight off disease and stress.
“More and more parents are realising the importance of nutrition in their children’s well-being, but some people find it difficult to know where to begin.”
Laura dispels the notion that healthy eating is about “punishing” yourself and firmly rejects yo-yo dieting and short-term weight-loss programmes as “dangerous fads”.
“I have a huge appetite and it makes me sad to see people yo-yo dieting, ruining their bodies and punishing themselves when there’s absolutely no need to. There is no ‘perfect size’ – each of us is uniquely beautiful in our own shape or form. Healthy eating and living is not about defining your shape or size – it’s about nourishing your body with the right food, nutrients and vitamins to have a meaningful and happy life. You need to nourish to flourish!”
