let’s ball

Whether it’s Michael Jordan jumping over 76ers star Ron Anderson to slam home a dunk, Ray Allen nailing that corner three to keep the Miami Heat alive, or, well, basically anything Kawhi Leonard did in the playoffs last year, we love the NBA for its awe-inspiring moments. We wanted to hear from you: What’s the NBA memory that still gives you chills? Bird’s game 5 steal (from Isiah) and dish to DJ for game-winning layup vs Detroit in ’87. Didn’t lead to a title, as Boston was too banged up that year (McHale playing on a broken foot) but was a truly iconic moment.—Leon Turo, California“The Block!” in the 2016 Finals that was heard around the world.—Ray Sequeira, AlbertaJohn Stockton hitting a 3-pointer over Rockets as time expired to finally get…

i find myself

—@bkiel13 I’M GONNA GO out on a limb and guess you’re not all that psyched about being cooped up in there. I get it. I’ve always envied those people who seem totally content to sit alone with their own thoughts, enjoying whatever wholesome Inside Out situation is playing out in their heads while all hell is breaking loose inside mine. Some days it’s like the bar scene in Star Wars in here, and when I’m tired or stressed and analyzing every little thing, it can get pretty ugly. When I want to distract myself from, uh, myself, I start with a sweat. One of the best things about working at Men’s Health is that I’m constantly discovering new ways to challenge my body and get out of my head. This month I’m…

Q Should I be wearing sleep tech? Is it even accurate? —RON, Chicago, IL A Consumer sleep technology is surprisingly accurate—in fact, it may soon eclipse what we have in the lab. There’s tech that measures things like motion, heartbeat, sweating, and body temperature, but what do you do with this data? If you suffer from insomnia, buying sleep tech might help alleviate anxiety about not sleeping; many of my patients sleep much longer than they believe. Some data with a bit more context? Moving 30 to 40 times during the night is actually perfectly normal. If you’re moving or waking up 100 times a night, though, you may want to consult an expert. —W. CHRISTOPHER WINTER, M.D. AUTHOR OF THE SLEEP SOLUTION: WHY YOUR SLEEP IS BROKEN AND HOW TO FIX IT For…

belly off!

RYAN D. BARTLETT STATS AGE: 26 LOCATION: Bangor, Maine OCCUPATION: Financial advisor BEFORE WEIGHT: 315 AFTER WEIGHT: 195 The Setback I hit rock bottom when I was 315 pounds. I never felt more awful, lethargic, or self-conscious in my life—any kind of activity would wear me out. As I got heavier, the things I loved doing (golfing, hunting, fishing) became chores. Doctors told me I would soon need medication. I was apathetic toward everything. The Wake-up Call During a medical appointment in 2016, a doctor told me I had another health complication: fatty-liver disease. I couldn’t handle another diagnosis. I didn’t want to deal with medication. The next morning I found myself at the foot of my bed, where I had a long moment of self-reflection. I knew I needed to take control of my life. The Food During the rest…
