NEW PAPER PUBLISHED!

This has been a long time in the making but so delighted to hear that our paper has been accepted for publication in the Journal of Human Nutrition and Dietetics.

Fertility nutrition is an under-represented area, particularly in dietetics and hopefully this work is a big step in the right direction for raising the profile for the need for dietetic intervention in infertility management AND the difference it can make!

Shout out to Komal, who came up with the idea of the screening tool & paper, for not just your great clinical contributions, but really helping to push this over the line, and to the other authors Eulalee and Shabana for their contributions too.

When the nice shiny copy is available I’ll share it in my stories, but it is available in Accepted Article format for subscribers to the journal & BDA members already.

From a personal point of view, this is now my 5th published paper in a peer-reviewed journal. Three in diabetes, one in digital health/weight management but this is my first one in fertility so I’m super stoked as it’s an area I’m super passionate about. Looking forward to my next paper… whatever that may be…!

BREAKFAST BINGO!

There is a huge variety of breakfast cereals on the market, from kids’ all-time favourites to those so-called “healthier” options like muesli, granola and high-fibre cereals. Unsurprisingly, people are confused about which cereals to go for.

Per 30g serving, calories do not greatly differ between cereals, but some cereals are healthier choices than others.

Many kids’ cereals are high in sugar and lower in fibre. But people become confused when “healthy” cereals are high in sugar too. There are different reasons for this including commonly (1) dried fruit or (2) added sugar.

Dried fruit contains natural sugar but additional nutrients too, and 30g of dried fruit equates to one of your 5 a day, so to have some dried fruit in your cereal isn’t a problem.

Where we should pay more attention is free or added sugars. If you want to know about added/free sugars, look at the ingredients list to see if sugar, honey or syrups have been added - this is ideally what we want to have less of.

So what do we want to go for? Ideally a higher-fibre, whole grain cereal without added sugar. Many cereals are fortified with several vitamins and minerals so can be a healthier choice than some people think.

What is your go-to breakfast cereal? Do you ever pay attention to the label? Any surprises with the examples given? Comment below!

VITAMIN D

Vitamin D is needed for healthy bones, teeth and to support a healthy immune system, and adults require 10mcg per day.

Vitamin D can be synthesized in the skin when we are exposed to UVB rays through sunlight. UVB rays are sufficient for Vitamin D synthesis all year round at certain latitudes, but in the UK, this radiation isn’t strong enough during winter months.

Between October and March/April, we are advised in the UK to take a 10mcg vitamin D supplement a day, and through these past months of isolation, we were advised to continue to take a 10mcg supplement during the summer months if exposure to sunlight was low.

Supplementation has been advised due to vitamin D being present in limited amounts within the food chain. However, some foods do naturally contain some vitamin D, and more foods are now being fortified with vitamin D, which IMO is a great thing as 1 in 5 people in the UK have low Vitamin D levels.

Foods which are naturally rich sources of vitamin D include egg yolks and oily fish such as salmon. Salmon is particularly high in vitamin D and one portion of salmon can provide you with your daily dose of vitamin D. Note: sources may vary.

There are also vitamin D containing mushrooms that you can now buy at some supermarkets. The difference between these mushrooms and normal mushrooms is that they have been UV treated, which enhances their vitamin D content.

Do you pay attention to your Vitamin D intake? Do you take a supplement? Comment below!

PROTEIN REQUIREMENTS: SPORTS

Protein requirements is something I get asked about quite frequently. As I’m recovering from an injury I’ve been paying more attention to my protein intake so thought I would share this guidance with you.

The guidance comes from the IAAF or the International Association of Athletics Federations Consensus Statement 2019.

Do you guys pay attention to your protein intake? Do you know consume per day or what do you aim for?

NUT BUTTER SNACKS

A couple of weeks ago I supported and with a feature on nut butters. Inspired by these articles, here are some nut butter snack ideas!

Most dietary advice we see is to support people to lose weight. Due to nut butters being higher in calories, they are not regularly featured, but actually nut butter when consumed in moderation can be a great addition to the diet.

Nut butter contains protein, healthy fats, fibre and nutrients such as Vitamin E. Furthermore nut butter can be really useful when trying to gain weight healthily, as it is energy dense.

With thanks to here are some top snack ideas using nut butter!

MY PEER-REVIEWED JOURNAL ARTICLE PUBLISHED TODAY!

I started working in digital health in 2018 and have seen the huge potential for its use.

The pandemic has brought about more requirements for digital and telehealth which makes this work even more relevant.

The evidence base on the effectiveness of digital health is limited so I’m very happy to be contributing to it which I hope will play a part in how care may be delivered in the future. Remember we’re not saying digital should be the only way, but it should certainly be one option.

Results showed that face-to-face and digital care provision achieved similar weight losses in a tier 3 weight management programme. Digital health is lower cost and has the ability to be scalable so we should definitely pay attention to its potential and power.

The link to the abstract is below. If you would like access to the full paper drop me an email - [email protected] (Despite the link saying error, it does work!)
