The ‘I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here’ Diet

I’m not into reality TV, and usually, I hate the celebrity ones even more.   But I’m a sucker for ‘I’m a celebrity get me out of here’.   Even if you don’t watch it you’ve probably heard of it, as when it’s on it’s usually plastered all over social media,...

Calluses: How to deal with them

Diet or Exercise: What’s more important?

“I shouldn’t really eat this…ah screw it, I’ll just do an extra gym session tomorrow”   “It’s 20% exercise and 80% nutrition”   “It’s ok I went to the gym today I can eat this”   “Abs are made in the kitchen not in the gym”   “I train really hard,...

“Hey, Vin, how many calories do you think are in these chicken thighs?” is what a friend asked me the other day.   “Erm, I’m not sure, I don’t eat them often, let me look it up” So we checked it out on the Waitrose website. One thigh contained 286 calories....

I don’t like getting annoyed, nor do I like wasting time debating or arguing with people, but there’s one thing that always bugs me and that’s health and fitness bullshitters.   You know all the those so called, experts and professionals that recommend absolute...
