BLOG - How I See It By PT Aylia Fox (scroll down)

D‚Äčon't Run Out of Steam

So much has been written about coronavirus and how to keep fit while we're locked down. So much information, so many You Tube videos, so many Instagram posts and so many people to like, follow and watch. It's overwhelming and exhausting - and that's before you've even done any exercise.

 My advice is this: find a type/s of exercise that works for you and keep doing it. Change it when you feel your body's got used to it or when it gets boring, The most important thing to do is keep going during this period. Those people who maintain an exercise regime throughout lockdown are the very people who are likely to remain committed when this is all over. They are the people who will stand out and flourish back in the gym/exercise classes and they are the people who will be able to feel proud of themselves from a fitness perspective for a very long time.

NOT ALL FRUIT IS EQUAL

Posted on February 3, 2018 at 1:55 PM

YES, fruit is good for us and we should be eating it as part of a healthy diet. Fruit contains nutrients, minerals, fibre, water, anti-oxidants and many are low calorie.

But beware, some fruits are better than others in terms of their sugar content and if you're looking to reduce your sugar intake and/or lose weight, then be careful which ones you choose.

Fruit sugar (also known as fructose) is better for you than refined sugar found in processed products such as biscuits and cakes, but it's sugar all the same and the body doesn't differentiate in terms of how it's used or stored.

And, if there's one thing that nutritionists, doctors and scientists agree on, it's that we should limit out sugar intake as it can contribute to many serious health conditions such as obesity and diabetes.

Here are the top ten fruits with the highest sugar content:

grapes, figs,  lychess,   bananas,   mangoes,   cherries,  raisins,  persimmons,  plantains,  pomegranates.


Here are the top ten fruits with the lowest sugar content:

raspberrires,  blackberries,  grapefuit,  watermelon,  strawberries,  currants,  cranberries,  papaya,  rhubarb,  loganberries.

Food for thought eh?
