There are some numbers in our life it’s worth sticking to. In no particular order: daily steps (10,000); sleep (7 hours); blood pressure (ideally 120/80); waist measurement (under 31.5in for a woman and 37in for a man); maximum weekly alcohol units (14 for men and women). And then there’s that nutrition stat that’s so easy to remember but so hard to meet: eating your 5-a-day. Turns out 69% of us don’t, yet 5-a-day underpins any healthy diet. That’s why we’ve dedicated half of this issue to practical ways to help you meet your 5-a-day target. We wanted to make it easy, so we asked dietitian Juliette Kellow to cover the essentials and devise a handy portion chart. Recipe consultant Phil Mundy picked his top HFG recipes that include your entire daily…

MAKING PEACE WITH IBS Your feature on IBS in the July issue was extremely interesting. Having been diagnosed with the condition a couple of years ago, it was enlightening to read about the psychological side of the disorder, the research going on, and the tips explaining what can be done to calm the dreaded symptoms. I find the emotional aspect of IBS fascinating and wondered whether adopting a healthier lifestyle and eliminating stress would significantly impact my digestive health – my symptoms inevitably flare up whenever I’m anxious! So I have taken Tracy’s advice and incorporated more exercise and relaxation practices into my day. Thank you for embracing such an important conversation.

‘I usually travel with my children, who are nine and 11, so water, sandwiches and a small bar of chocolate are crucial to keep moods up and tempers down! Plus, a pack of cards in case of delays.’ AMANDA URSELL is HFG’s nutrition editor. She has a degree in nutrition and a post-graduate diploma in dietetics ‘I make sure I have my trainers, a pair of ear plugs and an eye mask with me.

She specialises in IBS ‘I always pack some lightweight running shoes with socks, a vest and shorts rolled up inside them. They take up minimal space, but…

What’s your healthy travel-on-the-go tip? ‘I always take a bottle of water, a little tin of almonds and an apple with me. I travel a lot and frequently find myself delayed or hanging around waiting for a train or plane. When hunger kicks in, it’s all too easy to resort to grabbing a chocolate bar, muffin or bag of crisps. Having something to nibble on in your bag cuts down the likelihood of doing that.’ JULIETTE KELLOW is a registered dietitian who’s worked in the NHS, the food industry and within the media…
