Nurture Three Day Juice Cleanse – Nourishment or Nonsense?

Nurture Three Day Juice Cleanse – Nourishment or Nonsense?

I can already see you rolling your eyes. Juices?! As in… no food?! Well, no solids… yes. For three days. It happened, I did it, and it was amazing for my body, my mind and my blood sugars. More detail on that in a bit, but just what exactly would possess a food loving self-confessed […]

In A Spin? Review of Psycle London

In A Spin? Review of Psycle London

One dreary and moody not-quite-spring-yet evening as I scurried out of work with my head down in a hurried bid to dash through the Oxford Circus crush and reach my friend on time, I was halted by a glowing beacon of new shop frontage with clean branding and an enticing air of general wellbeing loveliness. Behold, Psycle. […]

LivLife Bread – The Low Carber’s Dream?

LivLife Bread – The Low Carber’s Dream?

Bread. Mmmmm… Bread. Lovely, fluffy, crunchy, warm, cuddle-in-your-actual-mouth bread. Like many people, diabetic or not, it’s the stuff of my dreams, and of my nightmares. Over the years me and my body have been rebounding through an intense love-hate carbohydrate relationship. The whole reason I started this site four (FOUR!) years ago was because I’d […]

If not the exact details – the smells, the confusion, the fuss, the overriding sense that something was very much going on that was cataclysmically changing life as you knew it up until that point. I don’t remember being […]

All Mouth, No Trousers? – Review of iBG Star

All Mouth, No Trousers? – Review of iBG Star

Although the title rather aptly fits a number of the more offensive men I’ve met in my now 25 years, it actually refers to diabetes. Honest. Well, a product for diabetes more specifically. By the way… hi! I won’t waste time apologizing for going AWOL, because I seem to do it to some extent at […]

“Have you had your jab?” – Review of Timesulin

“Have you had your jab?” – Review of Timesulin

We all like to pretend we’re on top on things. On the surface we’re all well put together, uber cool human beings, but it’s like we’re treading water; underneath the surface the legs and arms are frantically flapping around to keep us afloat. I have no problem admitting that this is me. I like to […]
