Book: The In-Sync Diet

Our colleague at The Putney Clinic of Physical Therapy, Fleur Borrelli (Nutritional Therapist), has collaborated with actress Glynis Barber on a new book called The In-Sync Diet. The diet is an evolutionary approach to weight management, incorporating all the secrets of your ancestors to help you to burn fat and stay lean and toned. Whilst most diets focus on what to eat, The In-Sync Diet is unique in that it also looks at when not to eat (to get rid of tiredness and fatigue)  and goes beyond simply recommending eating less and exercising more.

Glynis had been a keen advocate of natural health and wellness for many years before she approached Fleur for nutritional advice. Using an evolutionary approach to nutrition, Fleur made changes to Glynis' diet and lifestyle that revolutionised her thinking and The In-Sync Diet was born. The book was featured in the Mail on Sunday on the 18th April. Below is the full interview between Glynis Barber and Isobel James.

So Glynis, how have you …

THE BENEFITS OF PRENATAL YOGA

Pregnancy is a great personal journey for any woman and is a time of mental and physical change. It can also be a challenging time, as adjustments need to be made as the body starts to change shape.

A prenatal yoga practice can help address some of these changes in a positive way. Women who practice yoga during pregnancy are able to be really present in their bodies and connect with their unborn child. Yoga has a calming effect on the mother, which is, in turn, transmitted to the baby.

Breathing techniques learnt in prenatal yoga can be used at anytime during pregnancy and many women find them very useful when giving birth. Focusing on the breath can have a profound effect; by learning to control the breath women may feel empowered and more in control of their thoughts and …
