Davinia Taylor | It's Not a Diet

The Emma Guns Show

Davinia Taylor returns to the podcast to talk about her new book It's Not A Diet and how biohacking, listening to her body, working with it, rather than against, and paying close attention to what she was feeding it has been instrumental in her feeling better now, aged 43, than she did 20 years ago.In this episode, we discuss:Why she was so passionate about putting pen to paper.How her own experiences have convinced her more people should try this out.Why obesity is a very slow death.Why no one should be judged for being overweight because there are often a multitude of factors at play.Why we should be thinking about more about how food makes us feel after we eat it than when we’re eating it.Why living her healthier life doesn’t cost money and actually just requires some fairly small changes.How much of an effort it is to not like yourself and why it’s a constant battle that no one else knows you’re fighting.Why processed food are so bad for us - and not just for the reasons you may already know.The role of hormones in how we feel and the lifestyle changes we can implement that can help.Why exercising doesn’t have to mean being a gym bunny or go hell for leather and so much more…Davinia's book It's Not a Diet is available now.To join the closed Facebook group for the podcast click here >> The Emma Guns Show Forum.To follow me on social media >> Twitter | Instagram.Support this show http://supporter.acast.com/emmagunavardhana.

10: Davinia Taylor: 13 Years Sober

Over The Influence

Welcome to Over The Influence, Series 3!  We're Sharon, Freddie and Ben, three normal people who decided to give up alcohol to see how our lives would change. We're not medical experts but we are expert ex-drinkers, and our podcast brings people together who are on their own alcohol-free journeys by celebrating just how wonderful life without booze can be! In this episode we chat to Davinia Taylor, who is 13 years sober after giving up alcohol at the end of her twenties. You might recognise Davinia's name - she first appeared on Hollyoaks as party girl Jude Cunningham in 1996 and was always in the papers as part of the Primrose Hill set. She's now a Sunday Times Bestselling Author with her book "It's Not a Diet" and in our chat with her, she talks about the relationship between giving up alcohol and general good health. After her Mum tragically died from breast cancer, Davinia started looking more in to the science of how her body worked. She did a hormone test and discovered that she was dopamine driven, and that her body could metabolise alcohol really well... It was actually there, in her DNA! Davinia is hugely passionate about understanding how the body works, particularly in relation to how what you eat affects your mental state - by feeding her body the right things, she's feeding her mind the right things, all of which contributes to her maintaining her sobriety.
