One in Three Now Track Their Health and Fitness

The New Year is a time when many look to improve their fitness, and it seems that for a lot of people, wearable activity trackers such as Fitbit or Garmin are the key to their exercise regimes.

A recent international GfK survey, conducted online in 16 countries, shows one in three people (33 percent) currently monitor or track their health or fitness via an online or mobile application, or via a fitness band, clip, or smartwatch. 

Ready Yourself for New Year Challenges with Holistic Nutrition

The New Year is the time when most of us want to change for the better, but that can be harder to do when you factor in festive excess, the “Winter Blues” and January 1st coming right at the height of the cold and flu season. Leading Holistic Nutritional therapist Elizabeth Montgomery shares with us her top tips on staying healthy this New Year, and giving yourself the best chance of keeping those challenging New Year's Resolutions.

A Souper Way to Start the New Year

As the hangover from the Christmas season begins to subside, it’s no surprise the nation’s focus is back to wellbeing, with more than half of Brits (54%) planning to eat more healthily. Every year sees Britons embrace a number of health food trends, from spiralizing to sprouting, juicing to fermenting – however the one to pay attention to is ‘souping’, according to research by Knorr.

Nearly Half of Britons Too Unfit to Run for Bus

If your fitness is a concern this New Year, then you are far from alone. Almost half of women (48%) have confessed to being so unfit they would get out of breath running for the bus, according to new statistics released by the British Heart Foundation.

Be More this New Year

The start of a new year is the perfect time for a new you, to be the best you can be; to be more. For some, the turn of another year means yet more colder months, dark mornings and a serious case of the January blues. The Christmas tree comes down as the kids go back to school and the adults go back to work. But January does not need to be a month of low spirits, forgotten resolutions and winter colds; it’s the time to set new goals and reach new heights be it in your career, family life or personal ambitions.


We all know that the New Year means making promises that despite our best intentions we will find hard to keep. With many people setting resolutions to get fitter, eat a more balanced diet or to drop a dress size, Yushoi has come up with some top tips to help you to take small steps that could have a big impact.

Don’t try to change everything

Get into Fitness this January with tips from Team Macmillan

Fitness is always near the top of the agenda in the New Year, with billions being spent on exercise and gyms experiencing a 30% uplift in the first few months of the year. But keeping those resolutions and hitting those fitness goals can be much harder than it seems. The New Year’s Resolution Show spoke to Team Macmillan coach, Phil Roberton, who gave us his advice on how to approach your fitness in the New Year.

Try "Dry January" This New Year

Many New Year’s Resolutions are about a permanent change, and that is what makes them so hard to keep. But making a change for a single month is more achievable and a terrific starting point for any changes you may want to make, which is why many are advocating “Dry January”.  

“Dry January” is the perfect way for your body and wallet to recover from an indulgent Christmas and New Year celebrations. Giving up your old friend alcohol for a mere 31 days will save you a few quid, lose a few pounds, and feel more energised and refreshed in the process. It also provides a great starting point for evaluating the role alcohol plays in your life.

British Leeks: the Perfect Detox Solution for the New Year

For anyone embarking on a detox diet this January, eating in-season British leeks can help play a part in ridding the body of harmful substances while also contributing to weight loss.

According to the British Leek Growers’ Association, leeks are ideal for detoxing because they contain potassium, folic acid and vitamin C. Leeks can also help reduce cholesterol levels and rid the body of uric acid, created after ingesting certain foods. Too much uric acid can cause gout and kidney stones.
