start as you mean to go on

TRADITIONALLY this is the time of year when we all sit down and start to think about the year ahead. It’s probably because ever since we were in primary school our ‘year’ starts in September and goes through until the following summer. With that in mind, we thought it would be a great idea to suggest ways you could extend that holiday a little longer and not start school until after half-term in October! On page 52 we’ve taken you overseas to sunny Spain, but we’ve also explored the hills of Norway (probably not as warm), and the beautiful Isles of Scilly, not to mention the amazing trails of Western Scotland – suprisingly mild (the weather, not the hills). All offer something a little different, but they all do have…

Nature’s benefits As little as two hours per week in the great outdoors is crucial when it comes to improving health and well-being. According to a report published in Nature magazine, which analysed data collected over several years, when compared to no nature contact, the likelihood of reporting good health or high well-being becomes significantly greater at more than two hours per week. AM v PM It’s been said that exercising in the morning is better for weight loss but a recent study from the University of Copenhagen has called that into question. The scientists did show that morning exercise makes you metabolise more sugar and fat, while evening exercise increases whole-body energy expenditure for a longer period. But when all things are considered, one is not necessarily better than the other. Weekend warriors If…

under the microscope: blood-flow-restricted training

What? Strapping a band tightly around a limb while training to improve the effect. Why? A study in the September 2019 issue of Metabolism journal using cyclists added more weight to a 2017 study involving runners proved: that strength and lactate tolerance could be improved using this method. How? Although scientists admit more research needs to be done on safety issues, it can be done with appropriate supervision. The lead author of the paper, Carl Paton, recommends gaining medical clearance and training advice from a suitably qualified person before using the method. However, he added: “If you’re healthy with no cardiovascular problems, it seems to be safe.”…

SOYA MILK Soya milk is lower in saturated fat and is cholesterol-free. It also lowers the body’s low-density lipoproteins, which clog up arteries. But, it typically contains less calcium, at 25mg/100ml. With 0mg of vitamin D and vitamin B12, it is lacking vital nutrients that you’ll need to find from other sources. Protein: 3.3g/100ml. COW’S MILK Cow’s milk is higher in saturated fat but this can be lowered by opting for skimmed milk. It has higher cholesterol at 5mg/100ml. But it has more calcium at 125mg/100ml, which helps build bones and prevent osteoporosis. Protein: 3.4g/100ml. VERDICT Cow’s milk narrowly wins, being richer in calcium, which is important keeping bones strong. However, both are even in terms of protein, and soya milk is more suited to those with high cholesterol. PHOTOS: WSR/ALAMY STOCK PHOTO*, FOODFOLIO/ALAMY STOCK…
