Why is it that buying clothes in a smaller size makes us feel good about ourselves? We’ve all been there — that mental high-five when we slip into a pair of jeans in a size down. But surely our health, and in turn, our happiness, goes beyond whether we’re a size 10 or not? In this issue, we discuss a topic that I’ve wanted to write about for a while. It’s a bit of a controversial one…can you be healthy at any size? Turn to p22 to learn about a new scientific movement that rejects the quest for weight loss and acknowledges that healthy lifestyle habits are far more important to your health than any clothing size or number on the scale. It’s a thoughtful read. Meanwhile, if you’re surrounded by the…

Better than a quick fix I want to thank your brilliant team for the article, ‘Lose weight for good’ (Feb, 2017). What a very concise article on debunking weight loss myths with positive ways to do this and the reasons, backed up with research. We all want ‘quick fixes’ for life’s problems but it all comes back to being sensible and doing what’s sustainable, and of course, a bit of ‘no restraint’ once in a while. Barbara Handasyde, VIC Ideas as fresh as salads The DIY dressing ideas (Jan, 2017) have renewed my love for preparing salads in jars for the week ahead.

QI find that after a bad night’s sleep, I always want to reach for chocolate. What’s going on? Nicki S, NSW Glad to hear you’re tuning into your body and habits! As well as playing havoc with our hunger hormones, sleep deprivation messes with our minds, triggering us to reach for ‘reward’ foods such as chocolate, explains Healthy Food Guide’s sleep expert, Dr Carmel Harrington. “The reward centre of your brain is on fire,” she says. “So you yearn for rewards, and we’re not very good at controlling impulses when we’re sleep deprived.” Dr Harrington says the best way you can overcome this hurdle is to acknowledge when you haven’t slept well, be aware of what your behaviour is like when you’re sleep deprived (e.g. reaching for chocolate) and prioritise good sleep (between seven…
