We are thrilled to have a team of amazing celebrity and expert judges for the Platinum Awards for natural products and services, here we shine the spotlight on actress and health and wellbeing pioneer Glynis Barber and ask her 7 Questions..
Tell us a bit about your background, how did you come to be doing what you do in the health and well-being sector ?
‘Whats your big ‘WHY’
I’ve always done acting as my main job but over the years I became more and more interested in health and well being. It’s become a passion and 5 years ago I decided to become active in the field and started my agelessbyglynisbarber.com website.
How do you relax?
I’m quite capable of being a bit of a couch potato and flopping onto the sofa to watch TV after a busy day. However I also like to do exercise to properly unwind and de-stress.
What do you focus on most in terms of health and wellbeing?
I’ve always been very active and exercised in some form or another and I think it’s stood me in very good stead. However I also focus on eating an anti-inflammatory diet and eat in a way to boost my energy.
Whats do you eat for breakfast ?
I don’t eat breakfast! Instead I exercise on an empty stomach and then eat afterwards. One of the best things you can do to burn fat and not sugar and activate your longevity genes.
How much do you exercise ?
I aim for 5-6 days a week. However the acting work does quite often get in the way of that.
If you could be Health Minister for a day what would you do ?
I would take food manufacturers to task and not let them get away with making foods that are so processed and full of sugar. Parts of the food industry have completely undermined health on a global scale.
What’s your mantra / favourite inspirational quote?
Whether you think you can, or think you can’t, you’re right. (Henry Ford)
