Diet Myths

Diet Myths

2019-11-1900:36:244

Should we eat little and often or three big meals? Why does one meal make one person lose weight and another person gain it? Is it really calories in versus calories out? What about ultra-processed food, how does it impact on us? What happens if we eat just McDonalds for 10 days? We’re exploring personalised nutrition, diet myths and nature versus nurture with scientist Tim Spector.Sign up to our newsletter here - www.deliciouslyella.comTim Spector, Identically Different and The Diet Myth - http://www.tim-spector.co.uk/#Link to the DIETFIT study - https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jama/fullarticle/2673150Link to the British Gut Project - http://britishgut.org/ For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
Exploring the topic of friendship: how to support one another, how to let go of toxic relationships and why we need to strengthen our relationship with ourselves in order to further our relationships with others. We’re answering all your questions from why can we be so catty to why do we judge so much. Are women really supporting women, how can we be happy for others when we feel intense jealousy, how to handle the shift to motherhood and how can we change the paradigm of constant comparison?

How do we create real change, build community, find a sense of togetherness and heal the divisions that currently exist in our society? A recent Harvard study concluded that 80% of millennials want to be rich and 50% famous, are we aiming for the wrong things and focusing so much on the big, on grandeur and impossible-to-reach goals that we miss the joy, the purpose, the connection of the small, the everyday, the local? We’re talking to independent Politician Rory Stewart about his experience here and the often toxic divides of politics today.700 Tesco stores for frozenGelong Thubten Podcast Episode: https://play.acast.com/s/deliciouslyellapodcast/f6f90e87-5875-40f9-981e-7899babfc209Harvard Study Ted Talk: https://youtu.be/8KkKuTCFvzIStatistics on loneliness in the UK: https://www.campaigntoendloneliness.org/the-facts-on-loneliness/Rory references Tempus Novo, an award winning charity that works with serving prisoners and ex-offenders: https://tempusnovo.org/ For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Is it too much? How is it affecting us all? Should we need a digital detox? How can we wean ourselves off the addiction and control the social anxiety that can come with it? Today we’re talking about finding that balance, looking at the small steps we can take making tech something that makes us healthier and happier rather than more frazzled with Tanya Goodin.All statistics cited by Ella and Tanya can be found on: https://www.itstimetologoff.com/digital-detox-facts/All information about Tanya’s retreats, books and everything else can be found at: https://www.tanyagoodin.com/ For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
Changing the Birth Narrative

Changing the Birth Narrative

2019-10-0801:00:0415

What happens in birth? Why are we so afraid of it? Do we need to be that afraid of it? Can you really have a calm, empowered experience? Does it hurt? Will I tear? What are my choices? This episode looks at the FAQ’s and the current conversation around birth, breaking down the culture of fear and dread and questioning the current dynamics through the lens of #metoo and whether birth can be a feminist issue. From the widely differing stats of different birth choices and their respective outcomes to hypnobirthing, tearing, birth plans and doulas, this episode looks to guide all women through their thinking and create a positive outlook for all of us.Milli Hill – The Positive Birth Book & Give Birth Like a FeministIna May Gaskin – Guide to ChildbirthEmily Oster - Expecting Better For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

70% of women and just over 50% of men have had imposter syndrome, a constant, nagging sense of self-doubt, insecurity and the fear that others think we’re not good enough to be doing what we’re doing. In today’s episode we talk to clinical psychologist Dr Jessamy Hibberd about how to get comfortable being uncomfortable; how to differentiate between everyday fear and the negative thought patterns that hold us back and how to create a new mindset that allows us to celebrate our achievements and escape the mind-trap of insecurity that so many of us fall into.Books:Dr Jessamy Hibberd - The Imposter Cure: How to Stop Feeling Like a Fraud and Escape the Mind-trap of Imposter SyndromeSheryl Sandberg - Lean InDr Steve Peters - The Chimp Paradox For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
Can we really eat in a way that supports and prevents some of the biggest health issues affecting us today? Will going vegan result in vitamin deficiencies? What's the difference between a vegan and a wholefoods, plant-based diet? Should we eat five or ten portions of fruit and veg a day, does it make a difference? What benefits does eating organic really have? With so much conflicting information about diet and lifestyle, this season finale takes a deep dive into the data, evidence and studies around the power of a plant-rich diet with Dr. Gemma Newman. Gemma goes into the facts and figures, as well as talking us through her own experience with the power of a wholefood, plant-based diet and what she’s seen in her patients, touching on everything from cardiovascular disease to high blood pressure, high cholesterol, B12, childhood nutrition, mental health, pregnancy and so much more.

Sometimes I think I am addicted to the ritual of actually drinking something after work. So switching to a flavored carbonated beverage during the summer or a hot tea during colder months helps. That in addition to other calming, physical activity or self care activities helps.

I do not mean to cause any offence or harm to you both but what the doctor said regarding plantbased calcium bioavailability is false and very misleading. I'm a vegan myself and I believe a vegan diet can be very nutritious and healthy but I won't lie about what the science says and I won't address it as "perfect". Please revise this episode and do something about this. I love all your episodes and really enjoy listening to them but I couldn't stay quiet and ignore those false claims. They are quite harmful. The science is clear. Leafy greens are a good source of calcium but because they are high in oxalates, spinach it makes them not a great calcium source and harder for the body to absorb. I'm not a doctor or a health professional (& I don't claim to be) but I think that's common knowledge. Since I'm writing this, I want to congratulate u both on your new baby and I wish your baby girl health and happiness. Congratulations!!!!
