It isn’t just about that hour in the gym

Wouldn't it be lovely if there was just a single aspect to fitness that we could all aspire to? If hitting the gym for one hour, five days a week could take away all our health woes? After all, it does sound very intense. But it just doesn't work that way.Of course, if you have never worked out and you join a gym, or you start a diet (any diet), there is a huge possibil...

The reason why I became a health freak

I have struggled with weight issues for over 15 years now. That amounts to half my time spent on this planet! As a child, owing to my excess weight, I dealt with health issues, self-image issues, fat-shaming, fad-diets and torturous gym routines over many years.
