Keith, how serious

A relationship with her body guard.

How serious is it? The media reports

are sublging it is a very serious

relationship. Obviously, at long

last she has come across a man who

is not going to try to exploit her.

Look at her, previously she would

have had a few flings, if you like,

as a teenager, as a waitress and

then got kidnapped by the father for

a quarter of a century and now she

looks like she is in a serious

relationship with a sensible male.

She is 42? Yes. What do we know

about Thomas W? He is not 42. He is

younger than that. He is employed by

the security firm embloued to look

after her and the family. Because of

the amount of protection she has got

on a regular basis, the two have just on a regular basis, the two have

just bonded. What do we know just bonded. What do we know how

just bonded. What do we know bout

how she is rerecover b coverering?

It is the interesting thing,

recorded in the medical text books.

She has been underground for quart

oraffcentury, when she came to the

surface, her skin was grey from lack

of sunlight. No medical attention

for quarter of a century. The teeth

are black, you can imagine the lousy

state of the teeth, raped 3,000

times, gave birth to seven children

without medical assistance.

Physically, she was in a really bad

state. So the medical authorities

have had to go to work on her. She

has now got fresh teeth, died the

hair and making a quite a good

recovery. By the looks of it, she

beginning to get her life in order recovery. By the looks of it, she is

and is insome sort of

witness-protection program we would

call it in Australia. In a secret

location, but the media have found

the district in which she is based.

job. But you can imagine if you are

former superpower,

former superpower, nothing happens,

it is the land of Mozart, etc.. The it is the land of Mozart, etc.

only reason we talk about Austria is

because of Elizabeth Fritzl. So it

is a night mare from a PR point of

view. They would like it to die down

but because there is a huge amount

of media attention, the poor woman

has suffered so much, there is still

a lot of ongoing attention. Of

course, from an academic point of

view, she will be the subject of a

lot of medical journal articles as

Well, what he was trying to do, good

morning, Larry and Kylie, he was

trying to make sure that there was

royal representation at the D-Day

commemorations. Because after all,

he has read his history books and

knows D-Day was launched from the

from the five beaches, British and

Commonwealth servicemen and women

stormed three of them. He sees it as

a great error of judgment

British and French government to not

government who weren't up beat

Ahead on the show, reality TV couples -

Thank you. Thank you, Dicky! can they ever survive life after the spotlight? And why imaginary friends might actually be good for kids. But next, the stars of 'Terminator Salvation'.

There is a lot of brits and a lot of

Aussies who are taking a lot of jobs

Aussies who are taking a lot of jobs away from American actors, but yes,

let's keep that quiet.

Including the Aussie actor being hailed as Hollywood's next big thing. You're watching the Morning Show right around Australia.

# I'm your biggest fan # I'll follow you until you love me # paparazzi. # She may already have a royal title but where does Lady Gaga stack up against the world's biggest pop princesses?

We'll find out shortly. Arnold Schwarzenegger made the movies famous. But now, a new league of action heroes are taking on the Terminator franchise. Christian Bale and Aussie Sam Worthington star in sci-fi blockbuster 'Terminator Salvation'. US Correspondent Rahni Sadler sat down with them for a chat. Rahni joins us now from Hollywood. Good morning to you. Rahni, it's great to see another Aussie making it big in Hollywood, isn't it?

It sure it. Sam Worthington might

not be a household name now but it

is about to change. The 32-year-old

from Perth was best known for movies

like Somersault rr, Dirty Deeds and

the TV show Live My Way. The

producers of Bond looked at him

before Daniel Craig. And then the

producer said he would take him on.

He is featuring in the movie,

'Terminator Salvation'. I think

'Terminator Salvation'. I think he steals the show from Christian Bale. They had a lot to live up to. I'll be back. But director McG took the challenge head on.

I thought I would know. Suddenly it

has changed. 'Terminator: Salvation' is the fourth instalment of the sci-fi series. I want to respect the fans that have been with this franchise for so long

Because they are so passionate. I

wanted to do it properly and

correctly and give them something

worthwhile in the interests of doing another 'Terminator another worthwhile in the interests of doing

another Tirlinateer film. 'Salvation' is set in 2018 and focuses on the war between humans and machines.

? Some with me if you want to live. Christian Bale steps into the role made famous by the young Edward Furlong.

You just can't go around killing people. John Connor has grown up and wants vengeance.

You tried killing my mother, Sarah

Connor, you killed my father, Kyle

Rhys, you will not kill me. Is it more fun for you to do a big blockbuster like this?

Than to to do a straight dramatic

piece? No, it is not. It is more fun

if I haven't done it for a while.

But c like to mix it up. You worked

is with sewn e so many Aussies,

Heath and Russell, something in the

water? I think it is something we

should keep quiet but there are a

lot of Brits and a lot of Aussies

who are taking a lot of jobs away

from American actors but yes, let's keep it quiet. What wasn't kept quiet was the infamous Bale blow-up on set. Can you laugh at it now?

Only because it is all resolved.

Before it came out, it was long

resolved with everybody involved. I

was able to laugh with the people

making fun at me about it and I

deserved it. I have no problem with

that. It was over the top and

unacceptable. And I take full responsibility for it. Casting an actor that can stand up to Christian Bale was not easy but Aussie Sam Worthington showed them he had what it takes.

They know what you are, even if you done. They know what you are, even if you

done.. Enough! Wrrn I can say without reservation that Sam Worthington is the most exciting thing about this film

Which whole world is talking about

this young man and he has done

Australia, very, very proud. Sam scored the role on director James Cameron's recommendation. How much of the fun stuff did you get to do?

We do at much as we can before the

insurance company steps in. We live

in a world of Born Identity movies

where audiences demand an actor to

try to do as much as he possibly

can. Plus it is the fun stuff, being

ratched it back and cables. The

stuntman pulls you

stuntman pulls you out of the movie. If you see the guy doing it, you

keep being invested in the story. Hey!

Did you get hurt at all You are

doing Terminator, you are not doing

Pride and Prejudice. There are

butches and bruises. I think people

turn them severals up quite a bit. I

got as many bumps and scrapes as my

nephew when he wrestles. He won't

let his fame go to his head. My

girlfriend keeps me grounded. I do

an extraordinary job, I like to live

an ordinary life. I come home from

battling T 600s and she busts my

balls to take the gargage out. No

crap me making big movies. Making

big movies he does. If we don't stay

the cort, we are all dead. I am only hope you have.

Yb love it, pull your head in Robot

Boy and do the dishes. Is the movie

as good as the other three? There

are a lot of people who will be

watching closely? I would say on one

hand yes and on the other hand no.

Good on especially effects and

explosions. The whole first hour is explosions. The whole first hour

special effects and explosions and

looks good. But for the first 45

minutes I had no idea what was going

on but it seemed like the good guys

were being chased by bad guys but

you couldn't work out why. By the

enof the film I worked it out and it

tied in the plots from the first

three films very well. I don't like

action films but I left liking itch

Rent the other VDs first. You had no

other trouble picking the Aussie. He

spent a lot of time in the movie

with the 10-year-old girl, and they

said they couldn't stop Sam

Worthington from swearing, it was

his biggest problem on his biggest problem on the set. When

will we

will we the chance to see it? Opens

this Thursday, well worth seeing.

Thank you for that very honest

Thank you for that very honest look at the movie where you think the

good guys were chasing the bad guys

or something like that. Something...

The Morning Show brought to you by Jetstar, Australia's low fares airline. Now flying to 20 holiday destinations across the country. To book go to: Non-stop talking on your mobile phone can leave you with a hefty bill. But it could also be causing you nerve damage. The condition is being called cell-phone elbow. New medical research in the US has found a nerve in the elbow is squeezed when a person holds the phone to their ear. It can cause tingling in the middle and ring fingers

and a sharp pain in the elbow. Some patients have even required surgery to repair the side effects. In most cases, the condition can be treated by switching hands while talking or using a hands-free device.

I am sorry,

I am sorry, is that your considered

medical opinion rb Larry, Dr Emdur

says switch hands. My recommendation

is to just switch hand. That will solve everything. Coming up later on the Morning Show - meeting the parents without losing your mind. The essential guide to surviving this relationship milestone. But first, are you looking for a way to feel a whole lot better? Glenn's got more.

Switch hands! Are you looking for a new fitness machine that could help you tone, tighten and transform your body in as little as 40 minutes a day? You are? Well, stay tuned. This is in fact your lucky day. Rochelle, welcome to the Morning Show. Tell us what you are looking at here? What is this all about? Sure, Glenn. I know a lot of people would love a fitness workout

that could help them achieve a tighter, more toned body. Or maybe they just want to lose weight, get fit and feel better about themselves. It's time to meet the AeroPilates Perfora XP.

This will help you burn fat, lose weight quickly and efficiently

and with the Aero Pilates XP you will get a complete workout to get the body you want in just 40 minutes a day, three times a week. Fantastic. Sounds terrific. Tell us how the AeroPilates actually works. What you are looking at here is the Pilates home system which combines traditional Pilates

with smooth resistant strength training and cardio rebounding all in one revolutionary machine. Let's just run through what it can do with the help of our lovely Rachel here who is working out for us. First, you lie down on the glide track and you begin your warm-up. This is where you do checks to make sure your body is aligned correctly to reduce stress and strain on your joints. Now the XP features these super soft hand and foot loops with four resistance flex cords so you can customise your workout to whatever fitness level you're at. From here you can transition to abdominal work.

To make this exercise a little harder, you simply engage your arms as Rachel is doing now. Well done. I'm glad it's Rachel and not me. Moving from one to the next, it doesn't really, in all seriousness, look that hard? Moving on to the lower body, you need to put your feet in the loops. The straps support you and the machine helps to lift your legs into the air easily, keeping you in perfect alignment while you strengthen, tighten and firm your calves, thighs and buns.

Oh, those buns girls, how about that. What about the upper body, Rachel, what happens there? On the XP you can blast your abs with every movement whilst you stretch, sculpt and tone your arms, shoulders, back and chest. Every movement engages lots of muscles so you're going to see incredible results fast. Take a look at this. This is the cardio rebounder which will give you an aerobic workout while lying comfortably with your body fully supported, reducing stress and strain on your joints. That's clever. That's like a mini trampoline, isn't it? I does, doesn't it. This amazing cardio bouncing feature will actually elevate your heart rate so you can get a better workout and burn more fat in less time. Fantastic, I love it. In fact take a listen to this. Time to hear from some people who are already using the AeroPilates. I lost an inch and a half in my waist, an inch in my hips and I lost two whole dress sizes. I was looking for something that is going to be easy to do

but is going to give you a hard workout

and you're going to see and I mean immediate results.

10 weeks, 21 pounds, that to me is quick. The best bit for me has been my trim butt. I love this whole region now. I fit into my jeans, size 4, junior section. Any other machine I've had in my garage is now gone,

totally replaced by the AeroPilates and the cardio bouncer machine. Rochelle, when you're done, I understand you just fold the machine in half and then roll it away. Exactly. Very handy. How can Morning Show viewers get their hands on their very own AeroPilates? Glenn, I have a fantastic offer for your viewers today. The amazing all-in-one AeroPilates XP Performa system to try in your home for a 30-day trial for just $49.95. And if you decide the AeroPilates system isn't for you, simply send it back for a full refund of the trial price. Sounds fair enough to me. If you order in the next 10 minutes you will also receive the three workout DVDs valued at $150, the weight management guide, the wall chart and the mat, all valued at $90 - all for how much? Nothing, zippo, nil. And when you call, ask how you can get the Performa XP system for half price. Gotta love that. Call now folks - The phone lines are probably going to be busy on this one, Rochelle. I don't doubt that for a minute.

Your very own AeroPilates XP Performa. Hop to it. Thanks for coming in, girls. Well done. You keep going. I might have a crack at that in a minute, I'm dressed for it. If you want to visit the segment again - or check it out in 'New Idea'. Guys, back to you.

But first, Ann Sanders joins us with the latest news and weather. Hello, Ann.

Good morning, Kylie and Larry. Hello, everyone. The search for Air France flight 447 is over. Brazil's military has confirmed it's found 5km trail of wreckage floating in the Atlantic Ocean. All 228 people on board the A330 that left Rio De Janeiro for Paris are presumed dead. A Sydney woman has died after two P-platers crashed head-on in Mt Pritchard last night. Another crash in the wet, this time in Melbourne, left four teens in hospital. An L-plate driver will be questioned. And the winter sales have had a subdued start in Sydney and Melbourne as the big department stores hope for proof of an economic recovery. Checking the weather: And US President Barack Obama has appeared with Nancy Reagan for the first time since making a joke about her interest in the afterlife. The olive branch was extended as they planned an event to mark what will be the 100th birthday of her late husband, Ronald.

What Nancy was saying when she wakes

they had a close loving wip and she

misses him. She feel whz she is

I sure a lot of people feel that

# When the morning comes

# Wake up

# Get up and show the world what you got

# It is amazing how you feel #

Good morning, Perth. We can hardly see you.

We think you are in there. A bit of

rain and fog around today and a top

temperature of 20 degrees is

expected. Keep your brolly handy.

Just a bit of fog. Just a touch. For once, there's some good news in the financial world this morning. New figures suggest Australia has narrowly avoided falling into recession,

which means now could be a good time for people to work their way out of the red. But how do you know which debt to pay off first?

Or should we be saving an emergency stash just in case? Take for example fashionista Carrie Bradshaw

Only on this show can we go from

narrowly avoiding bankruptcy

narrowly avoiding bankruptcy to Carrie Bradshaw. She found that emergency savings could have come in handy when she was on the verge of eviction if only her shoes hadn't gotten in the way.

The lady at the bank said I was an

unattractive candidate for a loan.

Where did my money go. At $

Where did my money go. At $400 a

pop, how many do you have? 50? Come

on. 100. Would it be wrong. 100

times 400, that is your down

payment. That is only 4,000. No, it

is 40,000. I spent $

payment. That is only 4,000. No, it is 40,000. I spent $40,000 on shoes

and I have no place to live. I will

literally be the old woman who lived in her shoes. So which bills should you pay first and what can be set aside for later? Let's ask our money man Anthony Bell. Good morning. Given the current job climate, people may be torn between paying of their credit card bills and saving some emergency funds. Which do you think comes first?

Yes, the most important thing Yes, the most important thing is to

pay off debt when you can. Try and

think, if you pay your credit card

off you can get the money back later

but save the interest. It makes no

sense to have high debt and a term

deposit. Pay the debt off. The key

trick on credit cards is not forget

how expensive the interest is. They

are very, very expensive, are very, very expensive, 13, 14,

are very, very expensive, 13, 14, 15 per cent. They never come down. No,

because people don't pay their

credit cards off. The dad pwebts

factored in, the security, not like

a house mortgage at all. Most of us

have car loans, home loans and

credit card debt? Suggest the credit

card. Pick the loans that cost you

the most. Likely the credit card then coming down to

the most. Likely the credit card then coming down to personal loans,

car loans and then to the housing

loams. But bear in mind too, some of

the loans like a car loan are fixed

anyway. To pay them off in a rush

will cost you penalties and

interest. Take into account it might

cost. But keep in mind, the good old

fashioned home loan is cheapest of

all. What about kids' school fees. Even

Even public schools you get hit with

school fees. It is a weird one. Pay

the rent, so you got a roof and pay

the food bills so your kids survive

to get to school and the school fees

become important. A lot of schools

are doing it huff and a lot are

offering payment programs to those

who are financially disadvantaged.

Try, if you have got something at

the school with the teachers say you

can extend to time to pay it off, it

will be interest free. Don't pay it

on your credit card, use the

interest freedom. Don't be afraid to ask the

ask the question. What about the

guywise the students loan and credit

cards? I can remember getting a

student loan at university. One in

my name and one in a couple of my

mate's names. They only gave out $ mate's names. They only gave out

$500. The same concept. They are

auchen interest free. So you are not

in a rush to pay them off. Whenever

charges the highest amount of

interest. A repetitive theme, pay it

off. Any spare money, the Visa card

but don't take down the cash in case you but don't take down the cash in case you need it later.

you need it later.. If you are

earning reasonable money, what

should you do? I am not big for

young people putting their mun young people putting their

young people putting their money

into super. 20s, 30 and mid30s, save

up and put your money if to a home

or investment that is going to be

useful to you before you get to to

the retirement age of 65. When you put the retirement age of 65. When you

put money into superannuation, you

cannot get it back out until you

retire. It is stuck there, going to

churn away. It is very important to

make sure we cover ourselves for our

current life and not our future

life. They keep changing the rules

on super, just when you think you

have got is sused out. I feel sorry

for the 65 years olds, they were

ready to retire and now told they

have to work for a couple have to work for a couple more year.

It is meant to be there for the part

of your life after it is done and

said. It makes no sense to be

struggling week to week but have

massive amounts in super that you

can't get to for 25 or 30 year. A

lot of viewers would ask you this if

they could today, talking about

narrowly avoiding recession. Time to

lock in? We are starting to get

close. We are around 3 per cent,

close. We are around 3 per cent, the Reserve Bank fixed interest rates

but we have got good news. We have

been saying we might be at the

bottom of the market for the last

couple of months and the trading

figures and housing figures

indicates it might be true.

indicates it might be true. They have been saying what we have been

saying all the way along, Australia

is in good Nick compared to the rest

of the world. The fixing of home

rates might be the qua to go. We

will ask you a lot. Feel free to

call us, even if it is your day off

from us, call it through. Thank you. Thank you, Anthony.

There comes a time in most relationships when couples have to face that dreaded moment - meeting the parents. Sometimes it goes smoothly but as the movie 'Meet the Parents' showed, sometimes it can be a disaster.

Mum, dad, this is Greg. Hello, I am

Pam's father Jack Burns, I am Dina,

welcome to Oyster Bay. Oh... What welcome to Oyster Bay. Oh... What

you driving? A Ford. Yes, a Taurus.

Interesting colour you pick

Interesting colour you pick it? No,

the guy at the counter, They say

geniuses pick green but you didn't

pick it. Jack! The inevitable moment doesn't have to be quite as excruciating as that. So psychologist Jo Lamble is here to tell us how you can make a good impression on the potential parents in law. Welcome, Jo. Firstly, what are some of the biggest mistakes people make

when meeting their partner's parents?

Probably the biggest one is Probably the biggest one is trying

Probably the biggest one is trying to make it perfect. They put so much

pressure on themselves and might not

be themselves. It is Hard. If you

build yourself up to be someone you

are not, the second meeting will be

disappointing. And as our friend

Greg Focker did, not too relaxed and

you don't pick up the vibe of your future

future parents in law and remember

your manners. Greg from Victoria, " your manners. Greg from Victoria,

"The first time she met the

boyfriend's family she was so

nervous she through up in the

kitchen sink -- threw up in the

kitchen sink. Is shows how much

pressure there is. Get it in

throw up in the kitchen sink it won't be good. Take your time. As a

couple, how do you

couple, how do you decide when it is

the right time. I disagree with most

people, do it quickly. If you put it

off, it builds up to a momentous

occasion. Tell you parents, hey, it

is early days, no Spanish

inquisition. Help your partner by

keeping the conversation rolling. A

word of warning, if you have been going

going out for six months and the

parents live close by and the person

is not introducing you to the

parents, it is a sign of something.

They might not get on with the

parents. You would know if it is the

case. Or they think you won't like

the parents or it could be a sign

they have doubts about the future.

It doesn't have to be a three-course

dinner, it could be a quick call in.

The other fun night, the scary,

stressful one, when both sets of

parents have to get together. That

is much worse. That is the really

scary one. You got to ask both sets

of parents to be on of parents to be on their best

behaviour. Have it in a neutral

place. One set of parents will have

them over first and they have the

power. Power play. Yes, the grown up

kids have to take responsibility for

the conversation flow. It is very

common for two sets of parents to be

so opposite. Like in the movie. It

is common. The kids need to help.

is common. The kids need to help. We have been looking at it from the

young person's perspective, but as

you get older you are not meeting

the parents, you are the parents. It

is scary for everyone. Be on your

best behaviour, but help

best behaviour, but help each other,

conversation flow is important. When

Up next, though - how to get paid for being good with people. Karen has more. Ever dreamt of having faith start-up success without having the start-up risks of owning your own business? Wayne Ormond, founder and executive chairman from Refund Home Loans is here to tell us how you can be a part of the fastest-growing franchise organisation in Australia. Good morning, Wayne. Good morning, Karen. You have bought some special guests, as well. Good morning, guys. Good morning. More from them a little bit later on. So what do you say to people who are looking for a career change? Well, Karen, if some of your viewers are watching today are looking for a career change, and have always wanted to work for themselves, earning great money, then their next career move could be owning a Refund Home Loans franchise. So what sort of skills would you need to be a Refund Home Loan franchisee? Well, all you need is to be a great people person. What makes Refund Home Loans so unique is that you are getting paid for helping people and that makes everyone feel good. As part of their franchise package, we supply all of the ongoing training and support

right up to Cert IV in mortgage lending plus, all of the professional support provided by our team at head office. And how does the cash refund work? The cash refund is a share of the commission that the banks pay us, and we pass on to our clients to say thank you for doing business with us. Our customers not only love the cash refund but also the personal service in the comfort of their own homes and the hundreds of finance options that we have and a panel of over 35 leading lenders. You currently have over 240 franchisees Australia-wide, through capital cities and regional areas, so let's hear from one of them now. After 25 years as a plumber I was looking for a career change. After seeing Refund Home Loans it was the point of difference that got me in. Since then, the Refund team has helped me become a successful franchisee. Now we also had Max and Kelly Phelps here today. Who better to speak with us than one of your relatively new franchisees?

Good morning, guys. Good morning. How long have you been with Refund Home Loans? Coming up to six months. What made you decide to buy your own Refund Home Loan franchise? What I found with my UK teaching qualification was not accepted here so I thought I would try something completely different and be my own boss, have job satisfaction and a better lifestyle. So what made you choose Refund over, perhaps, another franchise? I actually looked at quite a few but I like the Refund model and the added bonus of owning my own territory. It is one of the big pluses. Right from day one you can operate your own franchise like an independent business and benefit from a high-profile brand and have full support. Is it a successful business for you, Max? Sure. We are doing quite well. That is a bit of an understatement, Max. Max and Kelly are doing very well, without embarrassing them. It is sufficient to say that as Refund franchisees,

they have within six months been able to double their income. Of course, how much you earn depends on how hard you work,

doesn't it, Kelly? It does. That is another thing I like about it, you get to work your own hours to suit yourself and your family. It is up to me. That is really good, isn't it? So tell me, Max, as a teacher,

surely wouldn't have much experience with mortgages, would you? Apart from my own, none at all. But the training was really first class and very easy to pick up. Karen, our franchisees come from all walks of life - from tradespeople to teachers, doctors, lawyers, policemen, we provide ongoing comprehensive training programmes.

What would you say would be the best part of being a Refund franchisee? Buying a house is an exciting thing to be a part of but also even with refinances, what we like best is watching the amazed looks on customers' faces when I get them the best possible deal and then the smile when we tell them what the cash refund is going to be. I bet. Wayne, recently Refund Home Loans has been listed by BRW as the number one fastest growing franchise for the second year in a row. Yes, that is right and it is thanks to franchisees like Max and Kelly. We have over 240 nationally now and BRW is also listed as one of the fastest growing companies in Australia. Thank you for coming in, guys.

To find out more about becoming a Refund franchisee call - or visit - Guys, back to you. Still to come - life in the limelight. Do the couples that meet on reality TV shows really stay together?

I am a sucker for all that. There is

And watch out, fashion world - Lindsay Lohan's decided to do everyone a favour and take over a top designer brand. But not everyone's cheering. The full story in just a moment. But first, there was a bit of biff in Canberra yesterday. It wasn't exactly a party in the party room. Liberal backbencher Alby Schultz grabbed frontbencher Chris Pearce by the throat during a meeting in Parliament House. Malcolm Turnbull chased Mr Schultz out of the party room to demand he apologise, which he did. So what do our Wednesday Jury make of this? It's over to commentator Rebecca Le Tourneau and host of the ABC 702 'Breakfast Show', Adam Spencer. Good morning. Bec, should pollies behave better than that?

I was amazed to hear this. The

thought of Malcolm Turnbull as mummy

was an hilarious concept. Get here,

face each other, look at each other

nicely, smack, smack, smack. What

are things reduced to when people

are throwing their hands around

somebody's neck for steeling a

policy or a pencil. I have been at

children's birthday parties where

the politicians could have learned

to behave better. Good on Malcolm

for being mum but he could have

spent his time better. I am very

excited by the idea. Two words, " excited by the idea. Two words, "Joe

Hockey." Show me anyone o on the

front bench who can go the distance.

The Morning Show stays at Novotel. With 22 hotels and resorts across Australia and New Zealand. Novotel, wherever you need to be.

We all know that brekkie's the most important meal of the day but it also matters what you eat. Making the right decision at breakfast can have a massive affect on your daily life.

Nutritionist Matt O'Neill is here to tell us why. First off, Matt, what if you're one of those people who just doesn't eat breakfast at all. Should you force yourself?

Yes, serious message today, if you

haven't, start doing it. It is a

really, really good habit. It is

going to feel like wearing a new

pair of shoes, awkward, maybe like

wearing someone else's underwear,

totally awkward but 28 days and you

will be used to it. Start with

something small. You are a bit

weird. People think I don't like

breakfast today and don't try it

again. This is the place to start?

This is the place to start. Even a

little bit of yoghurt, a bit of

apple, fruit salad, a banana,

something small. Your favourite tub

of Jobert, eve an dairy desert to

start. On the go? Yes, breakfast on

the go, you can get the tetrapack

smaougties on the go, you can smagt smaougties on the go, you can

smaougties on the go, you can --

smoothies. If you can make your own

smoothie at home, skim milk,

bananas, strawberry and a couple of

tea spoons of honey, fantastic. I

see the kids with the liquid

tetrapacks, I have got a problem.

What is your advice. I do wish

parents would take the time, I know

they are busy, out

they are busy, out of the door but

take the time to have the healthy

breakfast, automatic it will keep

you busy. Kids shouldn't be that

busy. They shouldn't give in to

conconvenience that early. The

popular doughnut and coffee. Is

there a healthy alternative. Shoo I

don't see a place if doughnuts in

breakfast, they are mutually

exclusive. But raisin toast, just go

light on the butter. Have it with a

skinny cappuccino rather than the

full mocha with cream and sugar. The

omlet is looking pretty good.

omlet is looking pretty good. Look at the size of this omelet! It is
