what to eat and when

7AM DOWN DOWN As soon as your alarm blares, drink 500ml of cold water. A German study found it boosts metabolism by 24 percent for 90 minutes because your body must spend extra energy bringing the cold water up to your core temperature. Pop a bottle in the fridge before you go to bed so it’s ready for you when you wake up. 7:30AM BURN BEFORE BREKKIE You can burn nearly 20 percent more fat if you work out before you have your oats, says a study in the British Journal Of Nutrition. “Your blood-sugar levels are low, so your body has to use fat as fuel for your muscles to work,” says Dean Hodgkin, international fat-loss and fitness expert. Head to the gym or go for a quick run on an empty stomach, then. 8:45AM TUCK…

the top 20 ways to eat

1 EAT THE RAINBOW. NO, REALLY. “When I look at a plate, I always ask ‘Where are the colours?’” says dietician Ellie Krieger. “There should be a full spectrum to get the different antioxidants you need.” For example, red peppers contain twice as much metabolism-supporting vitamin C as green. 2 BAKE A MUCH BETTER CAKE There are many ways to clean up your baking, including swapping refined sugar and flour for unrefined versions, replacing butter with coconut oil and sneaking in some veggies, like grated carrot and baby marrows. 3 FREEZE FOR BETTER SNACKS Don’t toss over-ripe bananas–freeze them and use them in baking. “If you get the nibbles when you’re watching TV, a frozen banana makes a healthy alternative to ice cream,” says dietician Melissa Rice. And banana bread is really easy to make.…

all calories are not equal

The grand maxim on which the multi-billion dieting industry is built is that ‘a calorie is a calorie’ (and all calories are evil horrible things). Consume less, expend more and thou shalt lose weight. It all sounds easy, right? Wrong. Mounting research shows we’ve been fed a big fat lie. Calorie counting is not the answer to either shortterm or long-term weight loss. The real solution lies in turning round the ratio of carbohydrates to protein and fat in our diets and harnessing the power of the way our bodies metabolise calories once they enter our system. What does this mean? Put quite simply, you will be able to eat the same, if not more, than you used to, but effectively consume 200 fewer calories a day. We know calories are not…
