Live Happy Eat Dirty – Episode 12 – Kate gets personal about health, weight & kindness

Wondering if fasting is sustainable long-term? This week, Kate celebrated her sixth ‘fastiversary’ – six years since she tried fasting for the first time. In a deeply personal and heartfelt podcast, she pays tribute to her mum, explores why kindness and self-care matter in weight loss, and reveals the big secret she’s been hiding…

Me at the Harrogate Crime Festival – my secret life as a thriller author revealed!

It’s my sixth fastiverary this month – 6 years since I started intermittent fasting. This month, my mum also died.

My mum Barbara as an 18-year-old student nurse in 1959.

It’s made me think about what we are here for, how to look after each other, and what we leave behind. In this very personal podcast, I explore why caring for yourself is the key to sustainable changes, why our governments need to do much more to support healthy eating, and how important it is to do what we can to stay happy and well – but why, ultimately, we can only do so much.

Plus I want to tell you what I’m doing next – and share the secret many 5:2 folks have no idea about…

My secret….? Yes, my first thriller is available for pre-order here in the UK and here for international delivery. This is what it’s all about…

In her eyes, no-one is innocent…

Georgia Sage has a gift: she can see evil in people. As a courtroom artist she uses her skills to help condemn those who commit terrible crimes. After all, her own brutal past means she knows innocence is even rarer than justice.

But when she is drawn back into the trial that defined her career, a case of twisted family betrayal, she realises her own reckless pursuit of justice may have helped the guilty go free.

As Georgia gets closer to the truth behind the Slater family, something happens that threatens not only her career – but even her own sanity. At first, she fears her guilt around the events of her terrible childhood is finally coming back to haunt her.

The truth turns out to be even more terrifying . . .
