how to eat healthy—and love it

The biggest trend in weight loss is one we can all get behind. It's a movement away from counting calories and toward incorporating more whole foods—veggies, fruit, and healthy fats—into our diet. On page 45, Time writer Mandy Oaklander digs into the research to explain why everything we knew about dieting was wrong. Experts are now hailing all kinds of rich foods we thought we couldn't eat often: eggs, avocado, even chicken thighs. By enjoying these foods more, we can balance our hunger hormones and keep our metabolism strong. Mindful eating is a big part of the equation, too. When we savor the taste and texture of what's on our plate, we're more likely to stop before we're stuffed. Slow, clean eating is easier than ever this time of year. My own…

back in style: white kicks

If there's one sneaker to snag this summer, it's a white one. Not only is this style versatile (rock it with jeans, shorts, leggings, even a dress), but it also looks effortlessly cool. We love these three takes on the fitness classic. Top: The Adidas Originals Superstar ($80; adidas.com) is still a must-have after 48 years. Middle: A subtle shine makes the Reebok Classic Leather Pearlized ($80; reebok.com) that much more luxe. Bottom: Oversize laces—a nod to the '80s—give the Puma Basket Heart Patent ($85; puma.com) a retro feel. Keep 'Em Clean Want your all-whites to stay, well, all white? Try Jason Markk Quick Wipes ($20 for 30; jasonmarkk.com)—sneakerheads swear by this dual-textured towelette. Or DIY: Mix a little laundry detergent with water and scrub away with a toothbrush.

your anti-aging lip kit

Sara Happ Sweet Clay Lip Mask ($32; sarahapp.com) The best way to get hydrating ingredients to penetrate is to exfoliate first. This cotton candy--pink mask helps boost cell turnover. Slick on, wait two minutes, then wipe off with a tissue to reveal smoother lips. Eve Lom Kiss Mix Colour ($24; at Space NK) This cult favorite lip-plumping balm feels cool on contact, thanks to peppermint oil. And it now comes in three sheer tints—pink, peach, and nude—so you can take your pick. ChapStick Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub ($5; at Target) Before you put on your go-to liquid lipstick, rub this sugar scrub on lips and smush together.

how to trust your gut

In a world where you can download data analyzing everything from your diet to your Twitter likes, it's easy to believe that all you need to make the right decisions (Is it time to switch jobs? Should I dump that guy?) is more facts. But the key to great decisions and ideas is sharper intuition, says Bernadette Jiwa, author of the new book Hunch. Here's how to hone yours: Unplug. Set aside time to think without distractions. This lets you be more observant and open to seeing new solutions. Ask yourself questions. Then get comfortable with uncertainty as you move toward your intuitive answers. "Constantly question why things are the way they are and how you could change them or make them better," says Jiwa. Follow the fear. It's always scary to take a leap of…

bugs, begone!

Have you tried a million bugbite-prevention tricks and still can't ditch the itch? It could be because a lot of insect repellent products are busts, according to a new study in Journal of Insect Science that compared the mosquito-repulsing powers of a variety of sprays and wearable devices, plus a sonic repeller and a citronella candle. The verdict? Nothing measured up to spray-on products containing DEET or oil of lemon eucalyptus (also known as PMD or p-menthane-3,8-diol). Wearables may not protect a large area of your body. And some gadgets use inferior active ingredients, including citronella and geraniol, says study coauthor Stacy Rodriguez. To make sure you're protected, pick products with 20 to 25 percent DEET or 30 percent oil of lemon eucalyptus.…
