Netflix and chill: The MAN v FAT Newsround 15/6


This week’s Newsround is football crazy, football mad with a couple of competitions. We’re also discussing getting in front of the TV to help weight loss goals and shooting for the moon.

Netflix and chill: The MAN v FAT Newsround 15/6

FROM THE MAN V FAT FOOTBALL LEAGUES

  • A huge well done to Derek Cole from the Bridgwater league for getting back into running and completing his local Parkrun. And an even bigger well done for losing a whopping 25% of your body weight since last July. Congratulations Derek!

  • This week saw a fierce battle between the Manchester and Oldbury who not only played from the heart but contributed to saving a few too by playing a match to raise money for the British Heart Foundation. The game was played on a pitch at the University of Wolverhampton, Bilston and there was an entry cost of £10 per player which went directly to the charity.
    A hot day and a much larger pitch meant that the all the extra subs were very much welcomed for this scorcher. After 20 minutes, Manchester were 3-0 up, with the game ending 8-0 to the Manchester lads. Goals included an absolute screamer being scored by Ross from his own corner kick! Well done to everyone, you’re all winners in my eyes.

  • The first MAN v FAT Football team name world cup kicks off today – we’re pitting some of our favourite team names against each other for a bit of fun over on Twitter. Check out our guide to how to choose a great name and for a bit more info about the game here.

IN OTHER NEWS…

  • If you’re still searching for what makes you happy or what makes you feel like you, perhaps you should try weightlifting. Studies suggest that it can ease the symptoms of depression and can substantially reduce the risk of developing clinical depression.
  • We all know we should be eating a rainbow diet, but what about a beige one? Dr Xand van Tulleken explains all the colours of carbohydrates we should be eating but warns us against the beige stuff! Read which type your gut prefers here and if you missed it last week you can catch his show The Truth About Carbs on iPlayer now, an interesting watch.netflix and chill: MVF Newsround
  • There’s a small event that started this week and if I’m honest, I’m not sure if it was worth mentioning. It’s called the World Cup, have you heard of it? It’s just a little tournament, pretty underground really. Anyway, it kicked off yesterday. If you’re into it, why don’t you tell us what your predictions are over on the forum.

WHAT WE’RE TALKING ABOUT

  • Why do we overeat and how do you combat it? We’re discussing triggers and how to trump them over on the forum.
  • @PickleRick has taken a push-up pledge and is looking for motivation and accountability. Check out his push for progression here.
  • Help us design new merch and have the opportunity to win a brand new hoody!

WHAT WE’RE READING AND WATCHING

  • I’ve often wondered what it’d be like to explore the galaxy, but as my irrational and humongous fear of darkness and heights has put a stop to me ever finding out. Or so I thought. Run The Solar System is a virtual race which combines a cardio and mental workout. As you reach certain distances the app will feed your brain information on the ‘landmark’ you’ve just reached. It’s available for iOS and Android but be quick, as the time when you can complete the race are limited.
  • If you love to binge (watch, that is), you’ll be glad to hear that a recent study from Yale University has found that junk food ads that traditional TV is full of might make us overeat. So hitting up Netflix instead of sitting through ads might actually contribute towards your weight loss goals.
  • If you’re feeling lost about supplements, i News has posted an article on what to consider when making your mind up on supplements. 

WHAT WE’RE EATING

Mars have just released Malteser Buttons which should be hitting a shop near you imminently. From dipping into a cuppa, having them on the go or sitting down and savouring every nibble, at 166 kcals per 32g pack they’re a perfect sweet treat.

STATS OF THE WEEK

Russia possibly isn’t on the top of many people’s travel bucket lists, or at least this summer anyway. A recent survey has found that three-quarters of Brits feel that World Cup events would make the country a dangerous environment to be in with almost half of participants refusing to travel due to a fear of violence.

I don’t know about you, dear reader, but this makes us at MVF feel awfully sad. Football is about participation, diversity and inclusion, plus respect for the sport and its players. Keep the morale and positivity high, enjoy the World Cup and if you are off out there, stay safe!

Until next week…
