For everybody whose New Years Resolutions may have already fallen by the wayside the following advice I received in an Email from an eccentric Chinese doctor, Dr Quak, may be of some comfort.
Q: Doctor, I’ve heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true ?
We’ve revamped our weight loss service because many people didn’t turn up for their appointments.
I think the reason is pretty straightforward. You go along to see the doctor about your cough and before you know what’s happened the conversation has been skilfully turned into a discussion about your weight.
I can never quite understand why January is the start of a new year.
Let’s be honest January feels like the end of the year. The days are short and the weather is cold. There are no leaves on the trees and nature is dormant. These are hardly the signs of a new year.
