Nigella Lawson is a UK television icon. Many homes have her recipe books in their cupboards. She is known for her penchant for indulgent foods.
Nigella’s favourite is yoga.
She told GoodHousing Keeping in an interview: “I do yoga three times a week. I have to do something I enjoy, otherwise I wouldn’t do it.”
She suggested the exercise is more appropriate for her age.
Nigella said: “The older I get the more I realise I have got to do lots of stretching. So even if I’m not doing yoga, I make myself do lots of stretching.
Not only that, but the less meat a person ate the lower their body mass index (BMI) was likely to be.
What is more, the sort of animal product eaten is linked to higher BMI.
For example eating meat is linked more often to higher BMI than eating eggs, cheese and dairy.
The study found: “A person with a 1.2 point lower BMI on average either completely avoids certain animal products, such as the primary ones, and is on a vegetarian diet. Or she continues to eat meat and fish, but less often.”
