Nourish yourself

Movement matters has been a core philosophy of bh physiotherapy from its very beginning in 1996. I must admit that I have been much slower to be mindful of nutrition. The 'French influence' helps to steer me away from processed food but it was not until I visited Jane Clarke in Harley Street that I really began to reflect on why I eat what I eat. Jane Clarke's book 'Nourish' and Amelia Freer's book 'Eat, Nourish, Glow' are full of advice about how we must "nourish" ourselves with good nutrition. It is fundamental to our health just like moving. Both authors advise changing habits slowly as our eating habits are mostly psychological and we need to take baby steps....just like starting to exercise. In summary:If you are eating too much sugar try and avoid the daily drip feed. Start to cut out sugary 'treats' that will actually make you more tired. Be mindful of how much sugar you eat on a daily basis and start by reducing it. Avoid alcohol daily. Try and limit it to two nights per week. If you drink cows milk try and buy organic or try alternatives such as almond, soya and coconut milk. Eat your greens. Similar to exercise, work out what your weaknesses are, strengthen them by giving whatever it is up! According to Amelia Freer we should ' avoid packets and promises' and eat real food. We should buy ingredients not meals. Your health must start with real food and good nutrition. Thanks to Jane Clarke I changed my sugar habit by making purees to add to yoghurt, a simple but effective change. I recommend buying both books. They will both help to change your eating habits and start your journey on the way to better nutrition and better health. This article is for interest and advice only as I am a physiotherapist not a nutritionist. Both authors are qualified nutritionists.
