Are 800-calorie-a-day diets safe and do they work? Many people with type 2 diabetes are putting their condition into remission this way, but are these diets the way to go if you want to lose a stone or two? We look at the evidence in our feature Cutting calories – how low can you go? (p33). It mainly depends on your BMI, as these diets are more suited to obese adults. If you do go this way, we always recommend you talk to your GP or a dietitian first. Do you have a man in your life who’s in denial about his health? Then plonk him down with a cuppa and our feature These simple checks can add 10 years to your life (p18). Compelling reading and potentially a life-saver. If…

‘Warm milk. I was made to drink it at infant school. Free school milk was a great idea for helping to boost nutrient intakes in children, especially of bone-building calcium. But back in the 70s, my school put the crates by the radiators in winter to take the chill off, so the milk was lukewarm and almost curdling. The memory makes me shudder.’ JULIETTE KELLOW is a registered dietitian who’s worked in the NHS, the food industry and within the media ‘Fat on meat... Mum used to cook beef casseroles and the fat made me feel so sick. I’ve barely eaten red meat as an adult, despite the leaner cuts now available, just in case.’ JENNIFER LOW is a dietitian who works as a consultant for the NHS and in the private sector.…

CROP FARMING COMES AT A COST, TOO In your article 50 ways to join the planet diet (April issue), you commented that crop farming is better for the environment than livestock farming – ‘end of story’. My concern is that all main crops deplete the soil and in order to maintain soil condition and productivity, they need lots of organic matter and/or to be left fallow. Even using chemical fertiliser (not a great option), you can’t get away from the fact that organic matter needs to be replaced. That means huge amounts of organic matter would need to be composted, reducing the amount of crop grown for food. Currently, farmyard manure is used and with the reduction in meat and dairy consumption there would be less manure to use on a greater…
