welcome to health's first food issue!

Of course, food and nutrition play an important role in every issue. But this month, we decided to infuse each section with one of my favorite topics, and we had a lot of fun getting really creative with it. Find out how to go from "fridge to face" in our beauty section, and read about our cover star Giada De Laurentiis' meal-planning secrets on page 118. I'm asked frequently what Health's take on food is. True to our name, Health is about food that is good for you in every way. Whole, fresh, in-season foods are at the center of all our recipes; we stay away from anything fake or "diet," and we won't send you chasing around for esoteric ingredients (who has time for that?). Whether it's a simple salad,…

make fat your friend

Pop open the olive oil and embrace avo toast: A diet high in good-for-you fats (like those in EVOO and nuts) doesn't lead to weight gain, a recent Spanish study confirms. "Dietary fats make you feel more satisfied, and some have been shown to up calorie burning," notes Health's contributing nutrition editor, Cynthia Sass, RD. Another new review found that folks who ate a Mediterranean diet emphasizing plant-based fats had lower risks of breast cancer, heart attack and type 2 diabetes—no matter how much fat they consumed. Sold! Is Butter Back? No, don't buy it. The latest research suggests that swapping out saturated fat for unsaturated may slash your risk of early death. OLIVE OIL, ROBIN BROADBENT/TRUNK ARCHIVE…

you really can bicker better

It's natural to disagree with your partner from time to time, but mind your tone—a new study suggests that the way you and your partner argue could lead to health problems later in life. Researchers found that spouses who "stonewalled"—e.g., avoided eye contact or gave one-word answers—during spats were more likely to suffer from back pain, muscle tension or neck strain over the next 20 years, while those who expressed their anger were prone to developing high blood pressure and cardiovascular problems. But there's no need to fear a fight, says Chicago psychologist Karin Anderson Abrell, PhD. Try these strategies to keep your next argument on a healthier track. Reach out—literally "It's a lot harder to fight in a combative or stonewalling way when you're touching each other physically," points out Anderson…

running with a purpose

Running for its own sake is great. But if you'd like to drop weight, logging miles with that specific goal in mind will help you strip away more pounds, according to a new study. Danish researchers tracked 538 newbie runners for a year and found that those who identified weight loss as their primary reason for hitting the pavement, as well as completed a 5K a week and cleaned up their eating, shed an average of 12 pounds. They were also more likely to stick with running. Folks who were motivated by other reasons (socializing, improving overall health, competing) lost only 1 pound. So if you're sweating for a better body, own it. #GIRLBOSS INSPIRATION A slew of kick-butt females have brand-new books out. We picked our favorite quotes to help you…
