The world of science is constantly evolving and we now know our genes may play a larger role than we ever once knew, but can it impact our appetite and our behaviour around food? Is there a deeper physiological role involved with how much food we intake on a day to day basis? There is also a school of thought that believes calories tell us everything there is to know about food; healthy or unhealthy, fattening or slimming. Joining me to translate his pioneering research into the human appetite and debunk toxic diet advice is Dr Giles Yeo, one of the UK’s leading scientists in obesity with over 20 years' experience dedicated to researching the brains control of food intake.

We are often warned about the damaging effects of technology on our health, from making our eye sight worse to anxiety-inducing social media. But what about when it comes to things like step counting apps and digital GP appointments; aren’t these positive aspects of technology?! With new technologies emerging all the time, should we be concerned, or should we be embracing them, and what does the future hold when it comes to our health? Joining me for a discussion around whether technology is friend or foe is Dr David Grimes, a Physicist and Cancer Researcher at The University of Oxford whose straight talking approach can help us debunk some of the myths around the science behind emerging technology.

How To Fuel Fitness

I bet you spend quite a bit of time and effort nourishing your relationships, whether it's with your significant other, your pals, your parents or your children. But what about your relationship with food? This relationship impacts not only our health, but for many it's closely tied to other relationships including that with our own body. Our relationship with food is so important to health, wellness, and happiness yet there's a very fine line between thinking carefully about what we put into our bodies and obsessing over it or restricting it dangerously. To help make sense of it all is Dr Joshua Wolrich; an NHS Surgical Doctor whose everyday work with patients and own significant weight loss experience have given him a unique insight as to how we should all build a healthy relationship with food. For information on the National Centre for Eating Disorders, please visit: https://eating-disorders.org.uk/. Follow Joshua on Instagram at @drjoshuawolrich.

The list of taboos that affect a woman’s health is endless, and let’s be honest, most women have no idea what's going on 'down there'. Culturally and personally, no body part inspires so much concern and confusion. It’s time to put an end to these taboos, and talk openly about women’s health, sex, pain, trauma, birth, motherhood, menstruation, menopause and simply being a woman. Helping us say goodbye to the myths and misconceptions surrounding the female anatomy is Dr Anita Mitra who’s an NHS doctor working in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The Gary Barlow Diet

The Gary Barlow Diet

2019-03-2543:395

Gary Barlow is one of the most successful British musicians and songwriters of all time, but fifteen years ago, as he himself admits, he hit rock bottom - he was out of work and unhealthy. His mental and physical health were at an all-time low, and he struggled to see a way out. Faced with an uncertain future in music, and other cruel twists of fate, Gary turned to food. For nine years, he struggled with his health and went on every diet imaginable. Fasting, extreme dieting, and binge eating led him on a downward spiral for which he eventually sought professional help. That was the moment he realised that he wanted to change his life and relationship with food. For more information, visit Rhitrition.com and Instagram.com/Rhitrition.
The Secret To Skin Health

The Secret To Skin Health

2019-03-3145:0213

I truly believe we should strive to learn to accept ourselves as we are, to embrace our changing faces and physiques as the years pass. But given the on-going obsession with finding ways to cheat nature, I know we’re all intrigued as to what the answer to good skin health is! Joining me to help sort fact from fiction is Dr Anjali Mahto, one of the UK's leading dermatologists. With her medical training, Anjali bridges the gap between traditional medical dermatology, beauty, and cosmetic medicine. With her passion for debunking myths about the latest fads, miracle products and cures, she’ll give us practical, evidence-based advice to arm us with the very best, honest information.

We live in an age of misinformation and pseudoscience. One minute something is good for us, the next its deadly. From national newspapers to instagram, everyone’s talking about nutrition but such a constant stream of information can make it difficult for even the most intelligent to distinguish reliable research from weak studies and sensational headlines. Nutrition research is complex, and is all too often oversimplified so joining me to sort fact from fiction and hear exactly who should we trust is nutritionist and lawyer Alan Flanagan.

I absolutely love this podcast. I listen to it on most of my daily walks with the dog. Rhiannon is extremely informative and her views on crash diets, getting rid of my sad step and eating to nourish my body without denying it of foods I love has really helped me change my views on how I want to lose weight safely! Her book is lovely, very detailed in the science part and food groups and the recipes are fab!

really enjoyed this podcast and can totally relate to a comment Rhi made about being a qualified PT but lacking the confidence and not really fitting in. Looking forward to further podcasts

A very accurate account of a birth story for a first time Mum. The story really resonated with me; it was comforting to hear someone discussing the fears and anxieties that are associated with child birth both during and post childbirth.

I absolutely loved this episode!! I have been vegan 5 years, however I still found this episode really helpful. So new vegans who are trying #veganuary will be able to take this information away with them and continue to transition into a vegan or plant based diet in a healthy and sustainable way 🌿💚 #vegan
