When you want to become the healthiest version of yourself, especially in these flu-ridden times- then an appointment with the completely brilliant and empathetic nutritionist and Doctor- Dr Vidhi @smilingvidhi @johnbellandcroyden 
Is the way to go.
I cannot recommend her more highly. 
I've just had my second appointment with her.
.
She is not only a Western medicine doctor but also a homeopathic one as well as an Ayurverdic one. So she can treat you on so many levels.
.
Dr Vidhi also uses an EIS sensor analyser machine which passes a low voltage electrical current through the tissue fluid that surrounds cells tissues and organs whilst also working as an ECG electrocardiogram checking your heart. .
This machine does not give actual blood and hormone analysis figures- but it does give indications via graphs of where your specific problems may or may not lie.
.
It reads your Interstitial fluid minerals including Phosphorous, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sodium and iron.
.
It reads 12 hormones including thyroid and cortisol and insulin . .
Your acid/alkaline balance. .
Your biochemistry which includes your triglycerides- fats in the body ( which include HDL - good cholesterol) and LDL and kidney health and glucose or sugar found in the body.
.
Also oxidative stress and a whole organ/ systems analysis from cardiovascular to digestive,, endocrine, immune function, neurolgical, neuromuscular, respiratory and body composition.
.
It even checks for cancer markers.
.
Totally impressive. Cannot recommend Dr Viddhi more highly. She has helped me with other recent health and digestive issues better than any other doctor, consultant, or gastroenterologist has managed.
.
The nutrijuvenate clinic with Dr Vidhi costs £180. .

We should vary our daily diet as much as we can, eating colourful vegetables as much as possible

We should vary our daily diet as much as we can, eating colourful vegetables as much as possible.
.
This was my super-healthy protein and good carbs breakfast today consisting of purple sprouting broccoli, purple sweet potatoes and organic eggs with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. .
All brightly coloured fruit and vegetables contain antioxidants – compounds which play a key role in protecting our bodies – and many naturally purple-coloured foods contain an antioxidant called anthocyanin. This is a beneficial plant pigment which gives fruit and veg their deep red, purple or blue hues.
.
This antioxidant can help your immune system and reduce inflammation in the body. .

I’m road testing two brand new nutritional supplements this week

I’m road testing two brand new nutritional supplements this week.

This one is called Zenii and can help plump and hydrate the skin. Good skin care isn’t just about the beauty products you put on your skin- but living a healthy lifestyle with attention to the food you eat and how much water you drink.

As we age the skin loses its collagen, elastin & hyaluronic acid content. So this is a supplement that aims to address these issues.

ProHydrate by ZENii
contains:
Hyaluronic acid to help maintain skin hydration.
Coconut water also for skin rehydration.
MSM as an anti-inflammatory and skin detoxificator.
Vitamin C as an antioxidant.
Zinc for healing and rejuvenation.

I would think that the results of any course of supplements or treatments will be more apparent and keep improving after a couple of months rather than in just one month. But we all have to start somewhere.

Zenii ProHydrate is available from John Bell and Croyden in London and online.
I’ll let you know my own results in a month.

Good morning

Good morning. Good Friday 
.
My happy place by the sea with dogs @misslucy_lou and family for Easter weekend.
.
This picture was taken by my daughter on our morning dog walk after 4 days of the 5 day Prolon intermittent fast-mimicking 1000 calorie a day diet plan. My daughter commented I was looking significantly slimmer. I don't know how much weight I've lost as I prefer to not weigh as I don't believe obsessing with weight or calories is a healthy mindset.
.
The scientifically researched mix of vitamin supplements together with the packeted vegan soups, nut and cocoa bars and fresh olives were actually really tasty and quite easy to manage for 5 days without feeling faint or too hungry or deprived. I do like my food.  .
Prolon do caution no exercise during this period, however I did have a yoga class and dog walks and was fine. .
Intermittent fasting is how I live day to day always leaving 12 hours after my last meal to my first of the following day. And when I can, 2 consecutive days a week, leaving 16-18 hours overnight ( an early supper, no breakfast, late lunch) . Not difficult. .
So these 5 days mimicked this way of eating but with reduced calorific intake. Much the same as the Michael Mosely 1000 cal a day eating plan for helping to reverse type 2 diabetes.
.
Happy Easter everyone.
I'm now looking forward to family Easter weekend with proper meals which are still healthy and also a bite or two or three of a dark chocolate Easter egg.

Healthy homecooked Sunday brunch

Healthy homecooked Sunday brunch.
.
.
Scrambled local farmshop free range eggs, smoked salmon from the village fish shop, smashed avocado with red chillies that were home grown in my garden, peashoots, and artisan seeded sourdough bread from the local baker. .
When you're by the seaside it's so much nicer to be able to shop locally for your ingredients, supporting the local community and village shops but also to know that the food you're buying is mostly locally produced and free range or organic..
.
Sometimes the food we eat may look and taste delicious but add nothing positive to daily diet or our nutrition. These include simple carbs which are mostly foods that are beige ( ie: bread, biscuits, cakes, pastries, pasta). Processed foods.  Hormone-fed meats.  Battery-reared chickens and eggs.

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein

2/3 vegetables, complex carbs and 1/3 protein.
.
2 organic Duchy of Cornwall skin-on, bone-in chicken thighs roasted in extra virgin olive oil and salt on the skin so it becomes crispy.
.
4 M&S outdoor bred,  nitrate-free unsmoked, streaky bacon rashers fried in olive oil until crispy.
.
(Free from) Sacla tomato pesto, wheat free, gluten free, dairy free. 
Cauliflower, French beans, broccoli, brussel sprouts, sweet potato and squash cubes.
.
.
It looks a lot on the plate, but once the bone is out of a chicken thigh there isn't much meat. 
Vegetables have very few calories.
I am not suggesting counting calories but I am suggesting that filling up on lots of vegetables is the healthy way to eat. 
The chicken protein with some healthy fats (olive oil and chicken skin) will help you fill fuller longer. .
