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

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

2019-08-1800:41:003

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.

The Pursuit Of Happiness

The Pursuit Of Happiness

2019-07-2800:52:481

We are under so much pressure to be happy. The market has exploded with self help happiness books and we see post after post on Instagram telling us to live our lives to the full. In times of adversity we’re told to ‘keep our chin up’ and ‘turn that frown upside down’. But is it truly possible to be happy all the time? Are human emotions like sadness and anger to be avoided at all costs, or are they in fact a fundamental component of human nature? And how can we be told to be happy 24/7 when in the same breath we’re also told not to be ashamed of negative emotions? Either way, with depression rates at an all time high and stress levels surging, it seems we haven’t quite got happiness figured out. Today I’m here with Paul Dolan, Professor of Behavioural Science and expert on human behaviour and happiness, to understand what truly makes us happy.  For more information, visit Rhitrition.com (http://rhitrition.com/) and Instagram.com/Rhitrition (http://instagram.com/Rhitrition) .
Fertility Takes Two To Tango

Fertility Takes Two To Tango

2019-07-2100:51:132

As young women entering adulthood, we are constantly told how to not get pregnant. Contraception is drummed into us from a young age and the fear of a pregnancy scare is all too real! But what happens when we finally hit that tipping point of wanting to have a baby? With 1 in every 7 couples having difficulty conceiving and the majority of women now having babies later in life than ever before, at what point is it necessary to start considering alternative fertility options? And to what extent can nutrition play a role in helping us to conceive? Joining me to discuss the facts about fertility is Dr Zoe Williams, an NHS General Practitioner and resident Doctor on ITV’s This Morning show who in a previous life was none other than Amazon in the TV show, Gladiators!

Can We Save Our Planet

Can We Save Our Planet

2019-07-1400:53:482

Our planet is in a state of crisis. Global warming is sending temperatures soaring to record highs, and ice is melting at an increasingly alarming rate. Ocean levels rose by 8 inches in the last century, putting small islands at risk of being completely wiped out. Natural disasters are intensifying, and whole species are at risk of extinction. What’s scary is that the world’s population is still growing and set to reach 9.8 billion by 2050, meaning there will be more lives to sustain than ever before. Joining me to discuss the impacts of climate change and whether there is still hope for our planet is UCL Geography Professor Mark Maslin who features in David Attenborough’s Climate Change documentary.

Going to the doctor isn’t most people’s favourite thing to do but they’re here to help us and whether it’s that embarrassing ingrown toenail or that contraception discussion you’ve been putting off for months – let me reassure that they have seen and heard it all, so there’s no need to be shy! Joining us today to help us better understand the most common conditions affecting all of us is Dr Sara Kayat, an NHS and Private General Practitioner and resident Doctor on ITV’s This Morning show.

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!

I absolutely love this Podcast! Rhi has done an amazing job busting myths that are plugged by the wider media, and has come a long way to completely change my mindset around a healthy lifestyle and has helped motivate all those around me to become more concious about their nutrition and movement choices. You are having such an amazing impact on many lives 💕
