editor’s letter

This is not normal. Apparently, it’s the “new normal”–or so everyone in power is hell-bent on telling us. But let’s be clear: the new normal is not natural, nor regular, nor routine, nor habitual, nor any other synonym you might care to consider. This is not normal. This morning, I woke up at 4am, tossed and turned for half an hour, then gave up. I went out for a run at around 5.15am and started work at 6.30am. At my desk, I could hear my wife snoring. I have managed to cut well over three hours of commuting from my working day and yet I feel busier and more squeezed than ever. This is not normal. By 10am, I couldn’t think straight, so I made myself an espresso before realising that my…

a slick new tip to save your skin

01 LIGHT IDEA 02 REAL MEDS Here’s a worrying fact for sun-worshipping Brits: though the benefits of catching rays are myriad, rates of melanoma–the rarest but most aggressive form of skin cancer–are rising, according to Cancer Research UK. But with 86% of cases classed as preventable, there’s still a ray of hope. One recent study in Nutrients is throwing shade on the Big C: scientists discovered that a diet rich in olive oil, onions, garlic, eggs and beans might give you some added protection against melanoma. The beneficial foods are all staple components of the so-called Mediterranean diet, which has also been shown to put the brakes on dementia, ageing and depression. It seems that the high antioxidant content of the diet shields your cells from skin erythema–a process that marks the initiation of…

flow it your own way for six-pack abs

03 ANIMAL CRACKER Ignore anyone who rolls their eyes at the mention of “animal flow”. It’s not all crawling on your hands and knees while channelling your inner wolf. Done right, it’s a short cut to washboard abs, increased mobility and a beast of a body upgrade for summer. Adding weight to the traditional kick-through makes it a complex movement that requires the co-ordination of multiple muscle groups and joints. While you perform the move, focus on stabilising your planted arm and hefting a dumbbell in the other, pushing your core into overdrive. It’s this complexity that gives you the cutting edge in your quest for a cobbled core. Plus, it only requires a couple of dumbbells–good news at a time when home kit is often sold out online. If the vainglorious pursuit…

scale up your muscle fuel

04 NET YOUR MACROS 05 FILLING STATION 30/10 GRILLED RED SNAPPER 30 THE PROTEIN White fish cooks quickly and becomes flaky and tender on the grill. Go with red snapper (or sea bass) for 26g of protein and 146kcal per 110g serving. BUY IT Ask the person behind the counter to scale, gut and clean the fish, but leave the head on for presentation value. Fresh fish should have a clear eye, a clean (not fishy) smell, and no slick of slime on the skin. COOK IT FISH IN ORANGE SAUCE Skin-on fish is notorious for sticking to grill grates and generally making a mess. Navigate around unnecessary hassle by employing a technique called reverse searing, in which you cook the fish with indirect heat first, then crisp the skin over direct heat. INGREDIENTS (SERVES 6) • A whole red snapper, scaled…

…i worship the sun?

06 LET THERE BE LIGHT 01 ISLAND IN THE SUN Even with your summer escape plans grounded, catching rays should still be a priority. According to the British government’s scientific advisory committee on nutrition, around 20% of us fail to hit the recommended daily dose of vitamin D. The good news is that you need just 20 minutes of sun a few times a week to reach your target. It’s an easy–not to mention pleasurable–investment in your long-term health. 02 DAY TRIPPER Make a daily habit of seeing the light and you can expect brighter moods. According to NHS researchers, sunlight helps to regulate your levels of the happy hormone serotonin and supports your circadian rhythms, giving you better sleep and a healthier brain. Meanwhile, a separate Australian study found that people bask in…
