    My high fat diet experiment
     
    I ate a high-fat, medium-protein and low-carb diet for eight days. Fruit was out, Boursin, butter and double cream were in. Watermelon was a sin, a steak with an inch of juicy fat was saintly. 

    Zana Morris, a nutritionist and a personal trainer, puts clients at her high-end The Library gyms on high-fat diets. She also put me on a high-intensity 20-minutes-a-day exercise regime. And every day she asked me, ‘Now, are you eating enough fat?’
     
    Morris thinks the high-fat diet is a good choice, not just for eight days, but for a lifetime. But only if you’re prepared to cut right back on carbs. I discovered this myself. In eight days, I lost an inch and a half off my waist and four pounds, while gaining the astonishing desire to bounce out of bed at 6am and never being hungry. Although I desperately missed a crisp apple or a frosty glass of white.

    Zana Morris founder of The Library gym says there are many psychological factors behind the push to push yourself.
     
    "There's no question that more high-powered woman in their thirties to early fifties feel they need to be fitter, healthier and stronger than their mothers were at the same age" Morris says "In their twenties women take it for granted that they can meet these phsyical challenges so it's partly a mental thing that they are proving to themselves that they can still do it as they get older. They are defying the popular view of ageing by propelling themselves over a very impressive bar"

    Suzanne Moore: 'I've joined the gym!'

    We are fat and getting fatter. Speak for yourself, you might say. Don't worry, I am. It's obviously not my fault. It's boredom, it's working at home, it's the deliciousness of crisps, it's hormones, it's a culture of grazing. It's part of my "enormous appetite for life" that sounds marvellous, but doesn't conjure the reality: guzzling my daughter's cold leftovers, celebrating the end of the day with the popping of a cork. Before you call me a champagne socialist, it's cava. Comrade.

    But my clothes were tight, and I had aches and pains. I am the average middle-aged woman. There are regular warnings about our bulk.Headlines scream that the UK has the fattest girls in Europe. Female flesh is always up for grabs, the having of it and the losing of it are considered are newsworthy spectacles. The unhealthy obsession is pitiful. If the camera puts on 10lbs, many of those pictured on the red carpet at Cannes look close to hospitalisation.

    Confused about protein? We clear up the misconceptions about this lean body essential.

    Chances are that if you were to tell a woman to eat more protein, she’d probably look at you in horror. With a reputation for making you bulk up rather than slim down, could this under-rated dietary component be more essential in our quest for a bikini body than we think? In a nutshell the answer is, yes.

    Adding more protein is one of the best adjustments that we can make to our diets to achieve a longer and leaner body. When used in the right way it can ensure we get the most out of our workouts, allow us to burn fat more efficiently and build the right type of muscle to both look and feel better in the long run.

    Tried and Tested: How this 15-minute workout blitzed my body fat.

    I have a confession to make. I've spent the last month struggling to stay healthy. I've fallen off the wagon, if you will. Blame it on birthdays and Easter, but I've consumed too much wine and too much chocolate.

    Funny thing is, I've lost 4.5lbs of fat, gained 3.5lbs of muscle which equates to 3.3% of body fat disappearing from my frame.

    How? I worked out for 15 minutes, 16 times over the last month.

    I feel like a cheat. A happy, fit cheat.

    The Library Gym
    It’s a weights-and-pulleys workout and neighborhood favorite that locals pop in and do for just 15 minutes a day. Day one might be chest and back, legs the next, and arms and shoulders on day three. "It’s lightning fast, needs no brain power," says a regular, and its metabolism-boosting method produces a toned, she-looks-after-herself bod. Founder Zana Morris has grown to three locations now, the buzziest being The Library in Notting Hill, and two Little Libraries. But all practice the signature circuit-style method, where everyone is working their way around the central column of weights, and attendance is capped at four fitness fanatics at a time.

    The Library in Notting Hill is a haven of tranquilty -  Nestled between the busy streeet of Portobello Road and Ladbroke Greove is a white washed converted synagogue turned gym, complete with beautifully simple stained glass windows, that looks like it's been plucked out of a greek island postcard. I'm telling you , you enter the building and a feeling of zen engulfs you. The interior is cleanly old school with beautifully bound books and a delightfully high ceiling. But this is no ordinary Library. This is a private members library which is actually a gym; a private members library where you're not reading. you're training.

Her own baby is The Library, a chain of gyms focusing on a 12-day low-glycaemic nutritional plan combined with 15-minute daily high-intensity interval training. ‘Muscles are worked to the point of exhaustion, releasing growth hormone. This targets belly fat and stabilises insulin, as well as helping to replenish protein throughout your body, which is essential for muscle tone, bone density and even the collagen in your skin,’ says Zana. Lightbulb moment ‘At university I followed very low-fat, low-protein eating plans – grains, vegetables and fruit – but would find myself bingeing once or twice a week. I could eat almost a whole box of muesli in one go! When I learned about high-fat nutritional plans, my hunger pangs disappeared and my energy improved. Now I keep carbs to a minimum and eat good fats such as avocados and nuts.’

    ABOUT

    The ‘author’ (read: founder, brains and brawn) of the exclusive, members club style group of London-based Library gyms, Zana, approaches fitness, business and life in general with wit and wisdom. Highly qualified in nutrition, personal training and yoga, Zana has been a wellbeing powerhouse from the get-go, having grown up in a health-conscious Irish household and cut her teeth working in a forward-thinking Galway health store. It wasn’t long before she left the Emerald Isle to expand her training and horizons in the U.S, and thankfully for us she brought her cutting-edge coaching skills and science-based nutritional know-how to our shores some time later, establishing her first gym on London’s Harley Street.

    Beauty & the dirt
    6th january 2014

    The moment came when I was at a party. I met a doctor, Dr Aseem Malhotra. He is a passionate man and he talks about changing the world one sugary drink at a time with the same kind of zeal and charisma that I’ve only ever seen once before.  He told me that Alzheimer’s should be renamed Type 3 Diabetes because a huge percentage of adults with Type 2 Diabetes go on to develop Alzheimer’s – an inflammation of the brain whereas Type 2 is an inflammation of the body. It was the moment that shocked me. I am afraid of manyy things, none more than Alzheimer’s.  Dr Malhotra, a cardiologist in the Royal Free Hospital, Hampstead, told me that when he wrote about his findings that a high fat high protein low sugar diet promotes not just weight loss but is anti-diabetes, I knew that the very next day I should head to personal training guru Zana Morris at The Little Library in Harley Street – a branch of The Library in Notting Hill.  It’s not just a very elegant gym, it’s the place to deliver what it promises. As I have been a disciple of the programme before I knew it worked.  The very specific diet is high fat, protein and no sugar. It helps keep your insulin steady and helps the body to burn more fat.  The Little Library system shows an average fat loss of 7.5 lbs and muscle gain of 3 lbs in just 12 days training. This all may sound too good to be true. It is true; the programme is just really hard.

    Best for Power. Get down to the Library, a new private members training club in the exclusive Notting Hill area for unlimited personal training, tailored nutrition and outstanding results.  This stunning training club is based on so much more than laborious hours spent pounding the treadmill and clocking up multiples reps.  Instead this edgy new workout space is based on an educated, intelligent approach to exercise.  The Library’s results-focused system consisting of short 15 minute bursts of high intensity exercise shows an average fat loss of 7.5lbs and 3lbs muscle gain in 12 days!! The Library is founded by Zana Morris who has a wealth of knowledge in the areas of personal training, nutrition and yoga.  Morris has created a space where you can workout and relax.  What’s so great about the library is that Zana realises that due to our busy lives, many of us struggle to find time to work out, especially for long periods at a time. Her extensive experience has proven that short intensive training is in fact a lot more beneficial than excessive long periods of exercise.  So much so that it accelerates fat burn, raises metabolism and improves muscle tissue.  Zana’s infectious approach will turn you from fitness phobe to fitness funster in no time – 12 days in fact!  The Library   http://www.thelibrarygym.com/

We join them in the knowledge that we are likely to spend time queuing for machines or find ourselves crammed like sardines into Spinning studios, breathing in the aroma of sweaty bodies. However a new breed of private-member wellness gyms cropping up around the capital is challenging the perception of what it means to work out. Reaching far beyond actual exercise classes, the boutique emporiums offer and exclusive environment in which to sweat and sculpt.

    Russian Squats
    18 November, 2013

    If you could do a little bit of exercise in exchange for a train ticket, would you? Passengers at the Vystavochnaya station, west of Moscow, are doing just that as part of a promo for the Winter Olympics in Sochi.

     

    The idea is to get people active and amped for the games in February, and for 30 squats, passengers get a free ride on the subway, which costs around a buck.--​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
