Many of our actions have an impact on the planet, and food production is one these as it has a staggering 30% input towards total green house emissions in the UK, making it a serious contributor towards global warming. Alarmingly, global population is due to grow over the next decade by 1 billion people, making it more important than ever for each of us to consider the foods we are consuming and adapting a change in a diet for a more sustainable and healthier planet. The latest major research suggests that even reducing our daily meat intake to 50-99g a day could see an immediate carbon footprint reduction of 22%. To share some insights on what we can all do and eat more or less of that will lead to a healthier planet is Registered Dietitian Ursula Arens.

The Truth About Carbs

The Truth About Carbs

2019-10-0600:37:052

Carbs have been tarnished with a bad name over the years and there has been a plethora of misconceptions surrounding them. As a food group carbohydrates are often left excluded or restricted, and with all the low carb diets to choose from it’s no surprise this has been the case. So, can you really eat carbs if you’re trying to lose weight? I find myself defending carbs almost on daily basis in my clinic. The truth is, carbs are crucial to optimum health. Joining me on the podcast me to explain the truth about carbs is Registered Dietitian Hala El-Shafie.

For years, we’ve all been told it’s important to eat breakfast to start our day right but intermittent fasting throws that wisdom completely out the window. The technique relies on restricting your eating to set times and alternating between feasting and fasting. So are there any truths to the health benefits behind intermittent fasting and what is the best approach to take if you’re adopting this pattern of eating. Joining me this week on Food For Thought is one of the world’s leading experts on intermittent fasting, Dr and Registered Dietitian Rona Antoni.

What Your Poo Says About You

What Your Poo Says About You

2019-09-2200:50:325

Let’s face it, talking about poo and anything having to do with your bowels can be slightly uncomfortable. It may be off putting but you can all tell you an awful lot about what’s going on with your health by what’s going on with your poo. As this topic is so often left unspoken about and with us all being unique, knowing what is normal can be difficult, what is the regularity, weight and consistency levels we should all be doing? Joining me to help understand why its one of the best clues to our overall health is Kevin Whelan, Professor of Dietetics and Head of Nutritional Sciences at King's College London.

The Science Of Fat-Shaming

The Science Of Fat-Shaming

2019-09-1500:42:433

With nearly 30% of UK adults classified as obese, it’s easy to assume that being overweight is a problem that can’t be solved. Living in a society rife with diet culture can lead many of us to believe that many people are simply lazy and make poor choices when it comes to food and exercise. But have you ever questioned the potential impact of comments and beliefs like this? As opposed to motivating someone to lose weight, research shows that obese people who have experienced weight discrimination are actually three times more likely to remain obese. And worryingly, weight stigma can have some devastating effects on mental health too. I’m here today with Registered Dietitian Sophie Medlin, to discuss the science behind fat shaming and what we can actually do to support those in need of help.

Best Diet In The World

Best Diet In The World

2019-09-0800:45:173

It has the potential to help solve the obesity crisis crippling healthcare systems, but few understand exactly what the diet is and most of us do not follow it, including increasing numbers of people who live in there - the Mediterranean diet. It is not a weight-loss regime such as the Atkins or 5:2 diets. It is actually not a prescriptive diet at all, rather a pattern of eating. Joining me this week on Food For Thought (link in my bio) to tell us all about the benefits of enjoying a Mediterranean diet is Professor Anne-Marie Minihane, Professor of Nutrigenetics at Norwich Medical School. We also explore how the Mediterranean diet encourages eating as a family which is now widely understood, to actively help people eat well and avoid excess, while we all know the TV dinner habit is linked to obesity.

Fighting Plastic Pollution

Fighting Plastic Pollution

2019-09-0100:48:152

Sadly, of the 6 billion tonnes of plastic waste produced since the 1950s, can you believe that just 9% has been recycled. Plastics are now found in the oceans’ depths, high up in the mountains, and even in polar regions. There is absolutely no escaping them! The question that we really ought to understand is whether it’s too late to reverse the effects of plastic pollution? So, joining me this week on Food For Thought to share how we can take on one of the biggest threats to nature is David Jones; environmentalist and founder of conservation charity Just One Ocean. It's an episode that reduced me to tears but I'm excited to help support their mission is to raise awareness of the issues facing our marine environments in order to protect and conserve them for future generations.

On the menu at a gym I went to last week, a salad niçoise is now repackaged as “high-protein tuna”. On Pinterest, you can now choose “protein” as one of your interests in life, and last year, there were 70m Google searches for “protein”. Around half of all UK consumers are apparently seeking to add “extra protein” to their diets so joining me is Anita Bean, a Registered Nutritionist and author specialising in sports nutrition, to help us understand exactly what we need to know when it comes to fuelling athletic performance through not only protein but our diets as a whole.

How To Lose Weight For Good

How To Lose Weight For Good

2019-08-1800:41:006

Diet culture has led us to believe that only a certain size is deemed 'acceptable', and that to get there we must restrict what we eat by creating certain rules and extreme measures surrounding our diets..But how can diets and extreme weight loss products work when we know that more than 50% of dieters put the weight they lost back on again, and often more than they even started with?!.And what's even more concerning is that losing weight too quickly can lead to some often worrying side effects. Joining me to discuss how to lose weight for good and how to do it safely is Registered Dietitian, Priya Tew. Priya and I explain how to go about weight loss in a healthier and more sustainable way, which involves maintaining a healthy relationship with food and not obsessing over numbers on the scale or in the form of calories.

Sleep Is Your Superpower

Sleep Is Your Superpower

2019-08-0400:59:462

We all love it, but rarely do we get enough of it. We’re told to aim for 8 or 9 hours of sleep each night, yet it’s estimated that the average Brit only gets around 5 or 6! Many of us de-prioritise sleep in favour of getting other things done, claiming ‘there just aren’t enough hours in the day’ and ‘I’ll sleep when I’m dead’! But ironically, sleep deprivation can negatively impact us physically and emotionally, so we need sleep to be a more productive, happier and healthier version of ourselves! I’m joined today by Dr Guy Meadows, a Sleep Physiologist and Clinical Director of The Sleep School, to find out more about why we need sleep.

I am very sceptical of a podcast that is promoting daily doctor (go) as our great resort of help .... Especially if it comes to cancer in times where we are forced to some treatments by false information and overuse of antibiotics

Rhiannon’s is the only podcast I have listened to. I follow her on Instagram and felt truly inspired by her posts, content and advice so thought I would give it a go. I always thought I had quite a good understanding of what and what not to eat but listening to her and her amazing guests I realise there is soooo much more to just eating right and it fascinates me. I’ve had my struggles with trying to find a healthy relationship with food but these podcasts are certainly inspirational. Can’t wait for the new series x ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Food for Thought is full of useful, important information broken down by her and her brilliant guests in a way that can be understood and enjoyed by everyone. As a trainee health psychologist myself I find it a really easy way to learn about the many issues that impact people on a daily basis and every time I listen my passion for health and wellbeing grows. Rhi really knows her stuff!
