editor’s letter

Do you remember a time before tech was cool? Allow me to jog your memory. Recently, a colleague circulated a popular YouTube video entitled “Windows 95 Launch was LIT!!!” While I won’t embarrass my children by indulging in millennial speak, it was quite something to behold. Indeed, I’d say “batshit” just about covers it. For the uninitiated, the 15-second clip captures the highlight of a mid-Nineties press conference given to herald the arrival of Microsoft’s new operating system. It pretty much consists of half a dozen computer science nerds on a bare stage, dancing, gambolling and punching the air in a manner that suggests their Starbucks might have been spiked with ketamine. Bill Gates, then the world’s richest man, claps along to the Rolling Stones’ “Start Me Up” like a clumsy…

THE BIG QUESTION Q IS IT POSSIBLE TO EAT TOO MUCH PROTEIN? TOM, HERTFORDSHIRE As the macro of the moment and so-called building block of muscle, protein is fetishised as much by supermarket giants as it is by pneumatic gym bros. While devouring a whole chicken in one sitting has long won you kudos in some circles, now you can’t move in Tesco without being sold protein ice creams and cereals. Sadly, it is possible to have too much of a good thing. According to the Reference Nutrient Intake, you need 0.75g of protein for each kilogram of your bodyweight, so an 80kg man requires around 60g a day – roughly three salmon fillets. But the greater the physical stress placed on your body, the higher its demands. For a man of the same…

get a taste for willpower

WEIGHT LOSS NEWSFEED 12/18 Forget his proclivity for pints – Danny Dyer is ahead of the nutritional curve. According to his Twitter account, the cockney hard man’s idea of sophisticated fare is a “crumpet absolutely pissing with Marmite”. While many of us have spent the past decade sheepishly avoiding monosodium glutamate (MSG), the compound that gives Marmite its uniquely savoury taste, Dyer has called science’s bluff and won. Not only have the health concerns surrounding MSG been debunked, but a study published in Neuropsychopharmacology revealed that the substance could also make your healthy eating plan far easier to stomach. Scientists tested whether broths and soups supplemented with MSG could affect the behaviours of diners at an all-you-can-eat buffet. They found that the compound lit up the regions of participants’ brains responsible for…

the health snob’s guide to games birds

01 BIRDS IN THE HAND More than 900 million chickens are eaten every year in the UK. Organic or not, if your protein is all white and comes entombed in supermarket cellophane, now is the perfect time to aim higher. The shooting season offers a chance to pump up your eating plan. “Game birds are higher in protein, vitamins and minerals than farmed fowl,” explains Tom Godber-Ford Moore, chef at shooting retreat Loyton Sporting. We suggest you give these a pop. A PARTRIDGE Peck away at muscle fatigue by timing this high-protein refeed for after your workout. Its high levels of phosphorus – which plays a key role in the production of ATP, the body’s main energy source – will swiftly revive you. B GROUSE A potent source of vitamin B6, grouse is packed with…
