The Grandstanders Podcast - 17 March 2012

On This week's Grandstanders show Craig and Jane will talk about foods that could sabotage your workout (here's a hint: cake is one of them), but also discuss the psychology behind the foods we crave, and why we think we're 'missing out' when we refuse junk food. Also: Are you "time sick"? Take a quiz... in your spare time and find out! And we have The Grandstanders great debate on Denial of the foods you love vs Planned indulgence... The duo also chat to the man who has been Jane's inspiration for the last sixteen years, Pete O'Brien...who tries an Irish accent, in honour of St. Patrick's day. The keyword here is 'tries'.

The Grandstanders Podcast - 10 March 2012

Team Grandstanders, Craig Harper and Jane O'Brien, are back to share in your Saturday mornings! Lots of research-prompted topics this week. In the Netherlands, a new product is being engineered- meat grown in a lab test tube. Would you be willing to eat this? A little bit closer to home, the Herald Sun interviewed women on the topic of beards. Do you like them? Do you not like them? Are there requirements for an attractive beard?....and what about a stubble? Also, research on weight loss and whether it's contagious! Studies suggest that certain friends can influence your weight range- are you convinced or does this sound like a mere coincidence to you? If you've been struggling to sleep, or want to get better quality sleep, tune into our interview with Elizabeth Shannon - the 'guru in all things sleep'. Whilst many may think strategically about diet and exercise, we often lack a sleep strategy. Elizabeth chats to us about Natural Sleep Solutions and how to get some good quality wink...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 25 February 2012

The Grandstanders talk weekly challenge, weight loss, weight vests and worthwhile friendships on this week's show. Our lovely Jane O'Brien was not feeling too ace this week, so Craig is joined by another blonde J as his fill-in cohost; please meet Jac! Together, Craig and Jac usher us into the third instalment of the Weekly Challenge. If you have been struggling with the past two weekly challenges, this week's challenge could be the one that gets you on board! It's simple, achievable and practical - for everyone. Join us as we take positive steps to make improvements to our health and well-being. One particular "shocking" news story sparks discussion on the topic of weight loss; a three year old was told that she needs to loose weight. Do you agree? Craig and Jac review the story and tells us what they think. For listeners who have been journeying with the Grandstanders for awhile, they may be aware that Craig has a weight vest. The idea is that by wearing a weight vest whilst doing...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 18 February 2012

Wondering how you could spice up you Saturday mornings? Look no further than 89.9 LightFM for the Grandstanders - the show where Craig Harper and Jane O'Brien takes you on an adventure packed educational journey through the world of sports and healthy living. Hold on to your seats, hats and whatever you can hold on to because the Grandstanders are back and they are ready to blow you away! Jane had a fill in co-host as the Grandstanders kicked off this week's show. Craig decided to show up a couple of minutes late. Was it just a coincidence... or did Craig have some trouble getting out of bed? Filling in for the mean time was Brett while Jane had the opportunity of sitting in the "Big Seat". On this week's show the Grandstanders chat with Sally-Anne McCormack about ANTs (Automatic Negative Thoughts), discuss excercise obsession, tackling the fear of veggies and more. Craig steps in just in time to take the show to a new level. This could also be because Jane kept his chair warm for h...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 11 February 2012

Join us in the excitement this week as Craig and Jane launch the inaugural Grandstander’s Health Challenge! Each week the Grandstanders introduce a simple health concept for our listeners to try out. Will you join in the challenge this week as we embrace a water-only-beverage-intake for one day? SMS the Grandstanders to keep yourself accountable (and avoid some avid finger pointing from our co-hosts!). Also on this week’s show we have the privilege of speaking with Carly Findlay, an inspiring young lady who chooses to turn her challenges into opportunities for serving others. Carly battles with a chronic skin condition….and looking different can sometimes attract comments and stares from strangers. Join us as we listen to her story – what motivates her and gives her perspective on life. Lots of health-talk on this week’s show! Find out about the host of ‘healthy’ food which may not be as healthy as we think. We explore some food maths calculations- how long it takes for us to...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 28 January 2012

Welcome to the second instalment of the Grandstanders for 2012! A jam-packed Aussie flavoured edition this week as we talk the Aussie Open and our Prime Minister. The Australian Open is Jane's favourite two weeks of the year; it puts a sure skip to her step. So, who better than Jane to give us a review of the Murray vs Djokovic semi-final clash? Craig explores the non-tennis side of tennis..... Bernard Tomic's alleged breach of a restricted licence- has he done himself a disservice by the way he reacted when booked by the police? The screaming (grunting) of women's tennis - should it be banned and does it serve a purpose? And finally, the dollars in women's sport - should female tennis players be paid as much as male tennis players? Is this an issue about equality or commercial reality, or both? Taking a slightly different turn in the second hour, the Grandstanders explore the relationship we have wih food. Jane shares with us the research finding on food addictions and the top four...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 10 December 2011

Today on the Grandstanders it's all about survival - survival to stay healthy amongst food a-plenty at Christmas parties and survival stories from the news. Craig and Jane brings you tips for preventing Christmas party weight gain. They also talk genetics: why is it that skinny people find it difficult to put on weight and over-weight people find it difficult to put off weight? Is it true that everyone has a default weight set point that their body naturally reverts to? Surprising results from research - it hardly seems fair that for some people calories turn into muscles without much work! (mind you, they are the exception). Also answers to listeners’ questions and the truth about carbohydrates – are they really that bad for you? Continuing with the theme of research, the Grandstanders report on the latest, cutting-edge 'yawning' research. Did you know that yawning may be an expression of social empathy and that we are more 'contagious' to the yawns of those that are ours (family...

The Grandstanders Podcast - 3 December 2011

The Grandstanders are back to share in your Saturday mornings. Extra special this week as Criag is determined to host the show with Jane, man-flu and all! (Tune in for an animated recount of how Craig dragged himself out of bed and into the studios of Mitcham) First off the bat, switching-off strategies. In our fast paced, microwave society, do you make timeout a non-negotiable part of your schedule? What strategies do you use to switch off? We also talk BPA (Bisphenol A) this week - the nasty chemicals sometimes used in food packaging. Find out what it is, how to spot it and how to avoid it. In a similar vein, Craig and Jane assess the merits of bottled water. Is it really better for our health, or is it simply a marketing strategy used by companies to entice us to buy their products? Lots of answers to listeners' questions this week. Are lollies okay as a post-event training snack? How often should we replace our runners? Learn to identify and spot the difference between pronation...
