The silence in the flat was deafening. Having lost almost everything in my divorce, it was now just me in a basement studio flat with black mould. I had no TV, no sofa and the wifi wasn’t set up. I sat at a cheap folding table and made a list. Since my life was no longer going to be the way I had planned – marriage, kids, a dog, a late-Victorian terrace in a country town – I was going to try something else. I was going to do all the things on my...

Calorie-starving slowed down my metabolism – this is what I did to lose a stone

This time last year I was feeling really depressed about my weight. In the previous 18 months, I’d put on a huge amount, mainly on my stomach, and because I’m short – just over 5’1” –  I looked pregnant.

Something that I worked hard at, for sure, but something that gave me kudos. Keeping fit – I mean, really fit – seemed to me an...
