“Don’t believe everything you read in the papers”. That was the sage comment from my 9 year old nephew on reading an article in a national newspaper today about my apparent deluded vanity.
A few weeks ago I was interviewed about the effects of cutting down sugar, on my body and health.
The journalist was particularly interested in my skin and the way (or how young, or not) I look. I emphasized a number of times that my overall health and fitness had improved and that less sugar in my diet was one factor.
Since qualifying as a nutritional advisor and personal trainer all those years ago I eat clean unprocessed food as much as possible, I exercise regularly, practice yoga and live an all round pretty healthy lifestyle. One of the aspects of my lifestyle is that I eat very little refined sugar. All of these guidelines and principles are well documented and discussed on this blog.
Fastforward to the Daily Mail spin.
I ‘put it all down to cutting out sugar’
The changes happened ‘overnight’
‘The biggest compliment you can pay me is to call me a liar‘
