welcome to women’s health

You can call us many things, but meek we are not. In fact, at Women’s Health, we’ll never steer away from important topics simply because they’re tricky or controversial. On a personal level, I’m one of the most honest and direct (some would probably argue blunt) people you’ll ever meet, so as head of this very influential brand, it’s my job to ensure we present facts, scientific findings and the honest opinions of some of the health industry’s most well-respected experts, even if that information won’t please everyone. One person who doesn’t fear backlash over what she might say is Jillian Michaels. Proudly predating most Instagram fitness stars, she was on TV screens when many of you were teenagers, preaching her message about how to achieve a healthy lifestyle, and I…

don’t fret, play tetris

• ‘Aidan is typing…’ Oh, that nerves-inducing period between the blue ticks and a bloody response, much like the night before exam results or the few minutes that inch by while a pregnancy test cooks. You need a distraction, which University of California researchers believe you’ll find in a game of Tetris; you know, the retro block-rotating-and-stacking game. They reached their conclusion after telling participants they were about to be rated on their physical attractiveness (yes, really) and left them to play Tetris in the meantime. They were split into three subgroups and played the game at different levels: easy, hard and adaptive, where the difficulty increases as the player’s skills improve. Only the adaptive group were distracted enough from the impending results to reach a focused, energised, ain’t-got-no-time-for-Aidan flow…

In grape health A new study* suggests that a regular glass of red will boost the diversity of your gut bacteria. That’s not an excuse to mainline the Merlot – you only need one glass a fortnight to reap the gut gains. HEART HEALTH HOTEL Holidays are good for your heart – confirmed.

is it okay to exercise if i have a cold?

• Setbacks a good workout can, if not fix, alleviate somewhat: a bad meeting, a spat with your partner, a mild hangover. But actual illness? The cost:benefit ratio is harder to call. Yes, you may get that unique buzz afterwards, but will you just extend your cold’s snotty shelf life? ‘The best way to tell whether it’s safe to train or not is the neck check,’ says exercise scientist and physiologist William Alexander. ‘If your symptoms are confined to above the neck – such as a sore throat and a runny or blocked nose – you should be okay to train.’ However, if you have aching muscles, a chesty cough, diarrhoea or a fever, give it a miss. Fighting off flu or another infection means your immune system is already…
