This month we introduce an exciting new column called ‘How I Stay Healthy’ and our debut guest, Deborah Hutton, shares her food life. A committed foodie, Deborah tells us that when she was modelling, being the right size was ruled by obsessive dieting. Many of us can understand how awful that feels — the gnawing hunger that claws at our tummies, which drives us to a relationship with food based on guilt rather than pleasure. So it is truly heartening to see research emerging that suggests traditional ‘dieting’ is on the decline as people come to realise that eating healthily is a better goal and, in the end, gets better results. In this issue, we show you why, as not all kilojoules are created equal. And for the same hollow kilojoules that are…

Letter of the month Thank you for Claire Turnbull’s article (‘Make healthy habits stick’, Feb 2016) which highlights the wrong reasons for eating. Although I cook healthy meals, I always read a newspaper or magazine while eating. I now put the distractions away and instead listen to my body, and I’m more attuned to my hunger and my body’s needs. Alison Jones, VIC So moorish! Oh my goodness, I have just baked the chocolate brownies (Jan 2016). My husband is a dyed-in-the-wool chocoholic … he loved them. Cheering! Kerri Parsons, NSW Gone shopping I find the News bites, shopping, and food suggestions very informative.

Weekend woes After eating well all week, you might feel you’ve earned the right for a weekend splurge, with heavy brunches, restaurant dinners and rich desserts. But new research shows that weekend bingeing can be just as harmful for your gut health as eating unhealthily all week. The Australian study found that our ‘healthy’ gut bacteria can change rapidly after a weekend of junk food, leaving you susceptible to disease. The good news? Resuming a healthy, high-fibre diet on Monday makes your gut microbes happy again! University of New South Wales, 2016 Slumber with a high fibre diet Eating fatty, sugary foods during the day that have little fibre leads to poor-quality sleep, according to new research from the US. And what’s more, it only takes one single day of unhealthy eating to…

Q Easter is my favourite time of year and I just can’t help myself with all these chocolate eggs and hot cross buns around! How do I survive Easter without undoing my healthy eating goals? — Elizabeth, via email Eating a few extra chocolates at Easter won’t undo your ongoing healthy diet. But remember that Easter is four days long. And, Easter treats have been adorning store shelves since New Year’s, so the temptation to indulge has been around for much, much longer. My first tip is try to steer clear of hot cross buns and chocolate eggs until Easter actually arrives. Then, keep the treats for a single time of day — perhaps as an after-dinner treat, or a 3pm snack. This way, you won’t be grazing on choccie eggs all…
