Rachael talks to Dr Joshua Wolrich, a medical doctor and NHS surgical trainee about his journey from overweight and unhealthy to achieving a healthy weight whilst changing his relationship with food. As a medical doctor, Joshua's motivation for change was to become a better role model for his patients. Join Rachael and Dr Wolrich as they discuss: Why you should focus on improving your relationship with food instead of thinking about counting calories. How to give yourself permission to eat whatever you like. Is aspartame really bad for you? Does the keto diet work? What about clean eating? Why you will weight more when you eat carbs (but it's not a bad thing) Are diet drinks bad for your health? Will eating croissants make you fat? and LOADS more.

Happiness is something we think we need to chase, but what if you could be happy RIGHT NOW? So you want to change something, maybe you're not sure what yet, but your gut feeling is telling you that this is NOT it for you.

Don't let society or other people tell you how you should live your life. It's absolutely okay to change your mind. And if you wanna do it big and dramatic style, then

  Have this for breakfast, or as dessert. We don't mind!  1 cup unsweetened almond or coconut milk1/4 cup chia seeds1 teaspoon vanilla extract2 tablespoons maple syrup1 kiwi fruit (peeled and sliced)50 g frozen blueberries ((thawed)) Combine the almond milk, chia seeds, vanilla and maple syrup and mix well, split into two glass jars or small bowls. Cover, and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the chia seeds to soak up the almond milk and become 'pudding like'. You can leave overnight too, if you want. Layer with slices of kiwi fruit (or just chuck it on top) and top with the thawed frozen blueberries. We use thawed frozen berries as they produce lots of nice natural blueberry juice too. Yum!
