editor’s letter

It might seem odd – antiquated even – that at a time when everyone in possession of a smartphone has the ability to publish content at the push of a button, we monthly magazine types are still beholden to lead times, future gazing and holding tight while the ink dries. And yet, I tell myself, that’s the price you pay for proper editorial craft and the tactile luxury of holding something that has been painstakingly cultivated with your readers in mind. Unfortunately, it’s also why I ended up writing the last March issue’s Ed’s Letter on Christmas Eve, with Slade playing in the background and a mulled wine on the go. This time around, I determined to be different. No matter how many Yuletides one has experienced or Get Back in…

Q DRY JANUARY IS OVER. DOES THAT MEAN I’M DESTINED TO REGAIN MY BEER BELLY? DANIEL, SOUTHAMPTON Alcohol contains calories and carbs, so increasing your intake may well cause weight gain. But then, so could upping your intake of anything else. Studies generally suggest that those who drink within their limits – a couple of beers a day, say – don’t carry around any more weight than abstainers. Indeed, a review in Current Obesity Reports found that drinkers tend to weigh less than teetotallers. Still, weight isn’t everything. According to researchers at the Mayo Clinic, extra fat around your middle, synonymous with beer drinkers, makes you up to four times more likely to develop metabolic disorders than leaner types. That’s the real risk you run by returning to booze. To safeguard your long-term health…

spread yourself thinner

01 DOUBLE FAT LOSS 02 IN RARE FORM WEIGHT LOSS NEWSFEED 03/19 The worthy fat-burning breakfast options that are championed by fitness influencers are almost uniformly joyless and time-consuming. Another cold Tupperware of overnight oats does little to excite the taste buds, and knocking up a superfood frittata makes catching the 7.36am train tricky. Amazingly, researchers at the University of Georgia happened upon some lip-smacking science that suggests the peanut butter and jam sandwich is at the cutting edge of morning weight-loss fuel. A test tube study found that the dynamic duo of fillings contain a cocktail of compounds that, together, stop fat cells in their tracks. The combination in question – that of resveratrol (found more readily in peanuts than in red wine, surprisingly) and the flavonol quercetin (crammed into strawberry jam) –…

why 2019 is crunch time for your abs

03 GIVE IT THE V THE BEST EXERCISE YOU’RE NOT DOING 01 SITTING COMFORTABLY Sit on the floor, your knees bent, holding a kettlebell to your shoulder with your right hand. Bring your left arm out to the side to steady yourself when the hard part kicks in. 02 FLYING V Balancing on your glutes, lean your torso back and raise your feet off the ground, extending your legs up and out in front of you under control. Find your balance – this is the starting position. 03 IN’N’OUT Keep the weight to your shoulder and hold your core tight to avoid wobbling, then contract your abs and breathe in, crunching your knees to your chest. Exhale and reverse the move. 04 PRESS TO IMPRESS Finish the rep by slowly pressing the kettlebell overhead. Pause, then lower it under…

the health snob’s guide to proper pies

04 READY TO ROLL 05 HOME ADVANTAGE 01 PUT A LID ON IT Once a guaranteed crowd-pleaser, the humble pie has slipped into the doldrums of Wetherspoon’s pub grub and reheated football-stadium tuck. But Tristan Welch, head chef at Cambridge brasserie Parker’s Tavern, wants to reverse this own goal. Done right, pies are a nutritious, macro-laden payload presented inside a deliciously buttery parcel. They’re a crust above, in other words. This is how to get a slice of the action. A CHICKEN TIKKA The combination of muscle-building protein – an impressive 23g per 100g – and the metabolism-enhancing spice of tikka marinade makes this upgrade of football’s iconic balti pie a true game changer when you’re aiming for a lean, strong physique.
