The new book is now available (links below). It is entitled ‘Diet and Fitness Explained’, but the fitness element is fairly short (some three chapters). It just gives a very high level overview of fitness aimed at the absolute beginner. So for those with an established fitness routine it is probably of less interest, although even then I hope there may be the odd nugget of useful information.

The main thrust of the book is the diet part (i.e. the food we tend to eat on a regular basis). I’ve approached in the same way I approached alcohol in Alcohol Explained. Essentially I’ve sought to explain why we are seemingly attracted to the foods that are worst for us, and what we can do to get back on track.

If you do read it, please do let me have any feedback, good or bad. If the book is of no use to anyone I will scrap it. I have no desire to have a book out there that isn’t benefiting anyone. At best it would be pointless, at worst it could detract from Alcohol Explained, which I am keen to avoid at all costs.

However if it is generally well received I will start work on producing an audio version.

    I’ve always enjoyed reading the clips you post from AEx. I’m sure Diet and fitness will be as informative . Simple explanations are good. There’s a lot of rubbish out there. I’m afraid Deliciously Ella made me ill !!! Good Luck with it ! ( I have colitis, … if ever you touch on that subject ….. keep me posted) cheers. Jane

    It’s gone through 3 stages of proof reading so there shouldn’t be many, if any, typos. If you spot any please do let me know. You can contact me direct via the ‘contact’ section of the website.
