    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Here we are at Day 16 of our January challenge to help us all stay positive and fabulous over 50 as we start the year in lockdown. With the cold damp weather (or even snow!) it can be so easy to cocoon indoors and do no exercise at all.  If we want to stay Fab after Fifty doing no exercise at all really isn’t an option. When it comes to fitness it’s a case of use it or lose it. Movement is key. We are thrilled to  have a guest contributing today’s challenge.

  2. Easy Weight Loss Tips for Achieving Your Weight Loss Goals over 50 in Lockdown

    Comment
      If you’ve tried to lose weight and failed, you’re probably thinking that it’s a mighty difficult task to accomplish. Do you feel like you’ve tried every diet out there and nothing works? While in lockdown the motivation to stick to a healthy diet to lose weight can be even harder. Don’t give up! Achieving your weight loss goals might be easier than you think! Small Changes = Big Results As you’ve no doubt noticed, weight loss isn’t a quick fix. You can’t go on a two-week diet, lose the weight, and then think that the weight will stay off for good. Even if you’re really good about following a diet at first, you’ll more than likely gain the weight back. Why? It’s because...
  3. New Year Challenge to stay Fabulous Day 2: Walk with a change of direction!

    Comment
      Time to mix things up! Do you always walk in the same direction?  Walking offers so many benefits to both general health and mindset. As many of us find ourselves working from home for increasing periods, it is good to break up the day with a dose of fresh air and a break from looking at screens. I do try to go for a walk around my village daily, but I realise that I always take the same route – coming out of my front door and turning right. I only ever see the scenery from the same perspective. So, today’s challenge is really easy. If you have a usual route , reverse it!! In my case I shall turn left and complete my circle...
  4. Your gut and how it feels – Examining gut health

    Comment
    Article by Amber Tsai Our body is home to about 300 to 500 different types of bacteria. They can be found in our gastrointestinal tract or GI tract. While some of these bacteria are good and some bad, all of them are crucial to our gut health. The balance between the good and bad bacteria is the indication of our gut health. Though we want to keep the bad bacteria to a minimum, it does not necessarily mean that we should eradicate and flush out the bad ones from our systems. Why is gut health so crucial, you ask? Your gut is the MVP when it comes to overall health. The responsibility of the gut, which is more than just your intestines, is to breakdown the nutrients from the food we consume...

  7. What is Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis? How is it diagnosed and how is it treated?

    Comment
    Interview with Dr Stephen Holmes conducted by Ceri Wheeldon Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is a little known disease, yet is the 4th biggest respiratory killer in the UK. Around 32,000 people live with the disease and 5,300 people die each year in the UK. On average it takes between 18 and 30months for a patient to be diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis following their first visit to a health care  professional. So what is IPF , how can we recognise symptoms and what are the treatment options? This year DJ Janice Long , sister of Keith Chegwin who died of the disease in 2017, has joined forces with the charity Action for Pulmonary Fibrosis to raise awareness and help people to recognise symptoms – and ask their GPs to ‘ Listen to our...

Here are some important things every couple should know about prostate cancer. Signs & Symptoms Prostate cancer occurs mainly in older men. The...
  9. Ways Sleep Can Aid the Weight Loss Process

    Comment
    Most people often turn to exercise routines and reduce junks to cut some weight. However, experts recommend sufficient sleep for those who want to lose weight. Sleep deprivation is known to affect your weight, metabolism, and hormones, resulting in weight gain. A study by the National Sleep Foundation linked individuals lacking sufficient sleep with a tendency to eat large food portions, experience bouts of heightened food impulsivity, experience more fatigue, and need more calories. Weight loss or gain is dependent on how the body balances ghrelin and leptin hormones. As such, sleep is an essential ingredient to your weight loss journey. Below are some ways sleep promotes weight loss. Sufficient Sleep Decreases Food Cravings Lack of sufficient sleep impairs the brain’s activation of the...
