Roll on the Salad days!
Spring is here, the grass is riz,
I wonder where the birdies is?
Some say the bird is on the wing
but that's absurd! The wing is on the bird!
Spring is a great time to get into eating salads and fresh, raw vegetables again. After the warmth of soups and stews in those grey winter months a fresh salad seems like a fresh start!

Losing fat figures
scales Use the correct information
I have been lecturing at Morley College, the adult and FE College in central London for over 10 years now.
I teach courses on how to become a personal trainer and how to assess someone's fitness levels and various other courses in exercise and health.
Recently I have taken on teaching some modules in Nutrition for the foundation course - prior to students beginning a degree in Nutritional studies.
In going over some of the information it made me think that I should remind you of some of the basic metabolism figures you may have forgotten!
If you are trying to lose wieght- these are the latest figures:
You need to work out your Basal Metabolism Rate.
This is calculated by:
multiplying your weight (in lbs) by a figure (that most experts now agree) is between 14 and 18 (depending on your activity levels.)
This will give you a figure - click here to trial yours :BMR calculator (scroll down)
Once you have this figure you know how many caloires you need to maintain your current weight.
Therefore if you want to lose weight you will need to bring this figure down each day.
Don't forget 3500 calories = 1lb of weight!
Thus if you cut 500 caloires off your BMR (either by cutting down eating or boosting up your exercise regime) then you could lose 1lb in 1 week!
Need more help with this? Call us on 0870 4423231 & we'll be happy to help
Keep well!
