    I've just had a lesson. I need to slow down and listen to my body realising that at 63 I shouldn't expect to keep up with 20 year olds in karate class, even unfit 20 year olds. I had a spectacular...

    I found that having one eighth of a teaspoonful of l-glutamine under the tongue - two to four hourly from mid day onwards got rid of about 80% of my sugar cravings. I also used a supplement - 5-HTP,...
