Nutrition & it’s Mental Health Benefits .....


I am not a nutritionist but over the years I’ve spent a lot of time looking into how good and drink can effect out overall health, particularly mental health. During my dancing years all I cared about was being thin, thin, thin! Whatever it took.... this lead to a diet of Diet Coke and fags! Ummm healthy, although looking back I didn’t feel bad whilst doing this, the power of youth eh? But I know in the long run it has a detrimental effect on my metabolism and mental health. What’s surprising is that even though I was a college for performing arts specialising in dance I don’t ever remember there being information given out about diet, the canteen sold normal baguettes and crisp style lunches, maybe the odd piece of fruit! Most of the older students ate badly and starved themselves and of course we wanted to be like them.... add to being weighed every Monday morning and it was a reciepe for disaster!
