Have you eaten yet? This is the greeting you will be met with at any time of the day in China. Food is the great national pastime, with a great emphasis on eating certain foods in order to prevent or cure various ailments. Many years ago, when I lived in China, these "old wives' tales" seemed quaint, but unimportant. Gradually, I came to realise that food and medicine are often the same thing. Since then, I have been a great believer in health foods and the fact that diet and fitness are inextricably linked.
This blog will cover the latest trends and findings in the health food field and hopefully encourage you to eat your way to fitness and longevity. Surely over one billion people can't be wrong!
