Q+A WITH THE E.I.C. WHAT’S YOUR view on Pilates for men over 40? —@brianmasefield I LOVE A simple question that really only requires a thumbs-up emoji yet still lets me riff on stuff I’ve been thinking about lately. So right off the bat: Thank you. Re: Pilates post-40, I am. When you know what you’re doing—or, more likely, working with a pro who can help you master a reformer—Pilates can be astoundingly effective at strengthening your core and counteracting all of the weird stability, flexibility, and balance issues that pile up with birthdays. I remember going to my first Pilates class a few years ago with one of my sisters—it was the morning after Thanksgiving, I felt lousy, and, like, how hard could it be? And… well, I’ll let my Instagram caption from…

Q. What does “plant-based diet” mean, anyway? And should I be on one? —EDDIE, Sioux City, IA A. Depends who you ask! Some use it interchangeably with “vegan diet”—plants only, no animal products. Others mean “plant-forward diet,” which includes some meat. “Plant-based” is a pretty mild term. However, it’s being weaponized in the diet wars, with some trying to frame plant-based diets as anti-meat diets. You don’t need to eat meat to be healthy, strong, or fit. But you also don’t need to give up meat. Want to improve your diet? Begin by eating more whole, minimally processed foods. Focus on getting more protein and vegetables. —BRIAN ST. PIERRE, R.D., C.S.C.S, DIRECTOR OF PERFORMANCE NUTRITION AT PRECISION NUTRITION For more on eating well in the new year, check out page 92. LIKE WHAT YOU SEE? Men’s…
