I wonder if you think you know what the world’s biggest killer is? Smoking, cancer, road accidents? You might be surprised to hear that it is in fact heart disease. According to the World Health Organisation, over 18 million people die from it every single year, that’s over 30% of all global deaths. But how do we know if we are at risk of heart disease, and do we have any control over reducing this risk? To help answer these critical questions and hopefully help save lives is Professor Martin Cowie, Consultant Cardiologist at Imperial College London.

Although we can’t always see it, it seems we can’t avoid it. Pollution is increasingly cited as one of the world’s biggest threats to health. It’s there when we step outside for some supposed ‘fresh air’, it’s present throughout our commute to work, it can even be found in our very own homes. So, should we fear pollution and is there really anything we can do to avoid it? Joining me to understand more about the real impact of pollution is Dr Matthew Loxham, a fellow in Respiratory Biology and Air Pollution Toxicology at the University of Southampton.

How Food Affects Mood

How Food Affects Mood

2019-04-2800:48:031

We all have good days and bad days; we all have foods we like more, or like less. But is there a connection between feeling a certain way and the foods we have eaten? Joining me to share the latest research is Dr Aria, a chartered psychologist specialising in the relationship between food and the brain. As a doctor in clinical psychology, a mindfulness specialist and an expert in the fields of behaviour change and long-term health, Dr Aria has developed a science-based method to help people achieve and maintain a healthy mind and body they feel good about.

The Power Of The Gut

The Power Of The Gut

2019-04-2100:55:29

As scientists increasingly discover the central role that gut bacteria play in our overall health, it’s tempting to believe the seemingly daily headlines suggesting the next gut wonder foods to revitalise everything from your weight to mental wellbeing. But, the science has a way to go before we know exactly what nutrition is best for your gut, so joining me to help translate exactly what we know today is Tim Spector, Professor of Genetic Epidemiology at King’s College London and Consultant Physician at Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital. Tim leads the largest microbiome project in the UK, which makes him ideally placed to sift fact from fiction on gut health’s wonder foods, probiotics, prebiotics and exactly what changes to your diet can genuinely boost your health.

To Eat or Not To Eat

To Eat or Not To Eat

2019-04-1400:50:211

With the constantly changing landscape in nutrition, it's hard to know which information is accurate. Everywhere we look we are bombarded by conflicting messages about food, stipulating what we should and shouldn’t be eating. New diets hit the headlines on a daily basis, we are made to question whether gluten is good or bad for us and see foods being disguised as healthy despite their alarmingly high sugar content. The list is endless! I believe that we all have the right to make our own decisions around the foods we choose to eat. We should be armed with the knowledge to look past these sensationalist media messages in order to make informed choices. Joining me today to uncover the truth behind some of the confusion is Jenny Rosborough, Registered Nutritionist and Head of Nutrition for Jamie Oliver. Having worked in both the public health and commercial side of the food industry, Jenny is perfectly placed to advise on how to navigate the world of food marketing!

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.

The Secret To Skin Health

The Secret To Skin Health

2019-03-3100:45:028

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.

The Gary Barlow Diet

The Gary Barlow Diet

2019-03-2500:43:394

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 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.

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.

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!

Pleasure listening to this podcast! As a registered nutritionist I passionately believe that we need more no nonsense info like this out there. Food companies need to start taking responisibility for what and how they are promoting themselves.

The best podcast out there. Fantastic listen. Rhiannon is a wealth of knowledge and together with other experts in their fields they share their educated and evidence based information on many topics for our health and help us understand the facts from the fiction on what is usually a confusing subject. Thank you Rhi.

I'm not really one to devour podcasts but I found myself this week, whilst eating dinner, three deep in this series without any problems. I began with the most recent episode with Victoria McGrath. Someone who I'd vaguely heard of. Which was quite refreshing. The guests on this podcast don't feel like they've been chosen just to plug their new book etc, but that they've got something to say on food and tell a story alongside it with Rhiannon's guidance. I've been following Rhiannon on Instagram for a while now and although I'm in awe of her work and passion for it, it's always felt, for me anyway, that it's a life I should aspire to but probably won't reach. Here in deepest darkest Nottinghamshire which is still reeling from pit closures, you get funny looks for being vegetarian, let alone vegan. So a world of healthy eating and buzz words such as plant based and superfoods, are alien. However, stay with me, Rhiannon and her guest are somewhat normal and admit they don't always get it right with their diets and food choices. sometimes they fall off the waggon. Which is fantastic for a chubster like me to hear. Throughout the podcast, you can tell Rhiannon has a smile on her face from the expression in her voice. She is someone that genuinely loves her work and I'm glad she's been able to share this in Food for Thought.
