What a busy week again! From Bristol to a boat on the Thames plus some fab funnies and sneaky peeks! Including Ali Young behind the scenes – you won’t believe the video!
FAB research talk
Well as you know I love learning – LOVE it. I’m at my happiest when I’m finding out new stuff. My inner Chimp is anyway (the Chimp Paradox – on my blog here). So off I went this week to the latest Food and Behaviour Research talk on Feeding Better Behaviour – the Gut, Brain and Nutrition connection and OMG was it fascinating. Plus as you’d expect the buffet was totally fishy! Loved it! It was a lovely day and me and pal Eileen (who has lost 4 stone since last summer using my Freedom Eating system from the Till the Fat Lady Slims books) came too.
Dr Alex Richardson’s lectures are always enlightening. I bought this omega three test, as it’s just a pin prick of blood you send off now to discover your all important 6:3 ratio. The FAB website offers tons and tons of articles and links featuring vital information about nutrition and wellbeing, with an emphasis on omega three from fish oils, and its link with ADHD, behavioural difficulties, and how the right essential fats can turn things around for so many.
Go here to find out more about the upcoming events including in Brighton and Sheffield. And if you join as an associate member you have access to the full video library of their seminars and talks – hours of info and insights into health. Plus early discounts for the talks. Like this.
But more importantly, watch this – one of the most fascinating videos you’ll ever watch if you still think low-fat is the way to go.
If u watch one thing, watch this. Fabulous reasons why the body gets ill. And how to help avoid it. @fabresearch talk. Food and Behaviour (FAB) Research

I take ideal omega 3 – 1500mg a day – I swear by it. If you investigate all the things it helps, you’ll know why. Fascinating.

How to make Kale Crisps a la Flint-and-air-cooker Talking of eating, have had a thing for green stuff lately! Kale crisps are yummy! Here’s my take on them – easy!
Good for the gut home made drink Kefir is a fermented ‘grain’ that’s not really a grain but generates a drink that’s teeming with amazingly good probiotic bacteria. I’ve started making it – in my airing cupboard! It’s not everyone cup of tea but I love it! And I’m feeling so much healthier due to all this gut-friendly stuff I’m taking. Hope you’re enjoying the clips via my Facebook page here!

Out with the girls on Sunday Oh it was really lovely. A lovely garden centre near Farnham – riverfields or something. So nice to be buying garden stuff. And being on with Richard this week too – not sure he felt the same tho! Lol – see below…
Pretty Peach Nostalgia Remember these? What were your other faves? I had pretty peach stuff, but also loved my very first perfume ever – a lily of the valley one in the shape of a little bell from my school-friend Sharon Foreman, now Holland. (Happy birthday to Sharon for the 1st btw!) Let alone the smell of the soap on a rope in the shape of a carrot which I had one year. Nuff said! Lol.

Our hero and my buddy Bruce is back with Bodyblade on Monday incl at 7pm with me – can’t wait. And check out this fabulous post from Patricia G on Facebook – attagirl!
Lock and lock rehearsal in the rain! Look at this – the only space large enough was outside in our garden set and the heavens opened when Jackie was rehearsing with Simon for the all important Lock & Lock today’s Special Value happening on Tuesday. It’s a bumper set – 20 pieces for around the £20 mark (Excluding p&p)– and you’ll see lots of print advertising to support it bringing in new customers – make sure you tell your pals that newcomers will want this one!
Liz Earle News Finally – well done to Pauline Pingram for winning my comp last week – the superb Superskin set from Liz Earle including the new eye cream. It’s really luxurious and sinks in fast. It’s enriched with rosehip, borage and cranberry seed oils, plus powerful lifting, firming and brightening properties, this is the most targeted eye care formula in the entire range.
It’s very exciting and the launch is soon – more shows are on 12th, do join Caroline and co. And it really works. Leanne E said to me on Facebook that over about 2-3 months, the difference Liz Earle made to her skin, was so incredible she tweeted the pics to Caroline Archer. She’d given up as she’d literally tried everything on the market but nothing worked until she tried the Liz Earle range. Leanne says she’d recommend it to anybody who suffers with their skin. Stick with it and you may be rewarded like she was.
Sneaky Peek Put Thursday night next week at midnight, in your diary too – if you want the Alpha-H way of fixing your issues – with the three-piece cleanse, peel and exfoliate set. You even get the chance to choose the cleanser in the set!
It is the perfect synergy with the current pick of the month (that has free P&P – an overnight leave-on plumping, renewing sleep mask, it’s fab! Stock up whilst you can save on postage!
Next week – Bodyblading with Bruce, plus ‘Deb-a-nory’ – an audio extract of one of my stories! Have a great week.
And here’s another super testimonial about my Freedom Eating weight loss system mentioned in my books Till the Fat Lady Slims 2.0 and 3.0 -

“You’re gonna laugh at my 2 x NSVs today!
After my 3XL Diane Gilman jeans and Women With Control trousers were hanging so loosely on me last week, I found a smaller pair of Diane Gilman jeans and wore them today – comfortably! Yay!!!
I reached into my wardrobe for a black cardigan, put it on and thought, “These sleeves are a bit tight”! However, the front edges almost met across my ample chest, then I thought, “This really doesn’t feel right. I know I’ve been doing Body Blade, Spin Gym and Pilates, but my arms aren’t THAT hench”!
I checked the left inside seam for the label and sure enough, it was a size… 8!!! That is my daughter’s cardigan! Astonished I got into it TBH! Hubby had put clean clothes away and not checked what belonged to who! We fell about laughing! LOL!”
