If you have any questions you'd like us to cover on the show you can get in touch at the bottom of this page. Now take a look at everything we covered on the show.


Thursday 19th September

Here's what we covered on the show this month.


Is there such a thing as too much exercise?

Angela got in touch frustrated because she seems to be doing loads to try and lose weight but getting nowhere. She told me she was going to the gym 6 times a week and sometimes doing 2 classes a day. Is she doing too much?


Here are a few articles which may help.



Are the scales your enemy?

Colin got in touch this month to ask how many times a week he should be weighing himself. Anyone who knows me well knows that I hate the scales. They never tell you want you want to hear, they can become addictive and they rarely spell success. Take a look at the link below for the real deal on scales and what you should really be measuring.



What can I do with all these apples?


It's apple season good and proper. Debbie got in touch with a glutton of the things. Falling off her three trees faster than she can say Isaac Newton. I've got a big tree in my garden too and every other year (fruit trees tend to alternate between good and bad years) I make every effort to waste as few as possible. so I cook them and freeze them (great in porridge or check out my healthy apple crumble). The other great thing you can do is make crisps. Want to find out how? Check out the link below.
