Chefs don't do it! The amount of people I see heating olive oil......please don't do it! Olive oil spoils under heat and even light. It should be kept in a dark cupboard in a dark container if possible. When you heat olive oil you change its composition from one of a healthy fat to a bad fat- yup BAD!

Buy extra virgin which is the best pressing of the oil and use it raw on salads or to dress up a plate but never ever cook or heat it.

If you need to heat an oil use coconut oil, which is heavenly and can be heated to a high temperature without spoiling - its health benefits are immense- or make clarified butter. Ghee is also another cooking product, which is essentially clarified butter but put in posh tubs and sold for a fortune in health food shops.

Boot camp and circuit training have been a real workout for getting the blood pumping and metabolism working once again for me. After many years of not being able to do simple everyday things such as running, squats and lifting, it has given me a great boost to believe I can get there again, even if at a slower pace than the rest of the pack! I’m not made to feel out of place for not being as fit as the others.
