Beauty comes from the inside...

On average 70% men and women in the UK believe their own diet to be "quite healthy" while only 10% believe it to be "not very healthy or very unhealthy". With these statistics in mind one would think that the nation as a whole is quite healthy, right? Who would have thought that nations average BMI (kg/m2), the indicator used by the government to identify overweight and obesity, would be 26.5 which lies in the overweight bracket? 66% of the UK population is overweight or obese! 
Every start of the new year, all magazines, whether for men or women, are filling pages with the newest diets, diet book sales soar, everyone wants to start off the year by losing the few pounds they claim to have gained by consuming far too much gravy on the turkey and plucking to many chocolate decorations of the christmas trees. 
What i wanna find out, whether there is in fact a sustainable diet, which will fit in with my hectic lifestyle, travel schedule, nurture my love for traditions and passion for cooking, make me feel good on the inside as well as the outside and allow me that treat that i cant possibly live without. 
No matter how much make up one applies, how many niptucks we have, real beauty comes from the inside, from what we feed our body and soul....
