So for more on this, I'm definitely cutting down on the drinking in January - Dryish January as I'm calling it. I've talked to former professional footballer Andy Ramage on today's Zestology podcast.

Steven Masley is one of the world's top experts in this area. He's a bestselling author and TV Doctor in the States, and he knows his stuff. His new book, The Better Brain Solution, is out tomorrow and I heartily recommend a cheeky pre-order as he is one of the top people in the field. It focuses on the link between body, brain and what we eat.
