welcome!

I’m writing this in August and we’ve just had one of the hottest days of the year, so it feels odd to be writing a letter for our October issue, when autumn will be well and truly in full swing! Autumn is one of my favourite times of year – I love the changing colours of the trees – see our beauty feature on face oils (p92), inspired by the season. It’s also a great time for kickstarting or reinstating a health and fitness routine, especially a weight-loss one, with the cooler weather being more conducive to outdoor workouts – no passing out in the oppressive heat! Many of us will have taken time off during the summer for a well-earned rest and perhaps eaten a little more, or moved a little…

CHOCOLATE FOR BREAKFAST? We’re filing this story under ‘news that sounds almost too good to be true’, but eating milk chocolate first thing in the morning really can have unexpected benefits on weight, according to researchers from Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The study, which focused on postmenopausal women, found eating 100g of chocolate within one hour of waking could help the body burn fat and decrease blood sugar levels. In fact, the extra calories meant a reduction in hunger and less of a desire for sweets later in the day. Win-win!…

a strange tip for fussy kids

It’s no secret that the majority of children aren’t mad about eating their greens. While your instinct might be to chop veggies up smaller, or disguise them somehow, scientists have found a surprising method of persuasion: give them bigger portions. It sounds counterintuitive, but research from Penn State University shows that doubling sweetcorn and broccoli served at a meal – from 60g to 120g – resulted in kids gobbling down 68 per cent more than usual (around an extra 12 per cent of their recommended daily intake). Even more interestingly, seasoning vegetables with butter and salt didn’t have any impact.…

keep your friends close

Talking to female friends can decrease levels of stress hormone cortisol for women of all ages, according to the Beckman Institute for Advanced Science and Technology in Illinois. One of the professors behind the research said women have evolved to feel less calm when talking to their peers as an alternative mechanism in response to stress. Happily, while stress was lower among friends, researchers found older women were equally able to work well in a team with strangers in a test of communication. In other words, friendships both new and old serve you well as you age, and you’re more than capable of making new connections.…

blueberries + milk = winning combo!

If you’re a blueberry fan you might want to consider adding them to your morning cereal, or munching alongside a glass of cow’s milk, as American research shows that milk protein helps people take up more of the fruit’s nutrients, such as anthocyanins. Anthocyanins have antioxidant properties, helping to lower blood pressure and reducing the risk of certain cancers, but only small amounts are absorbed from blueberries during digestion usually. The experiments used purified proteins taken from milk, and not whole milk itself, so more research is needed to check this works in practice. But, for now, we say why not add a handful to a whey protein smoothie?…

why people love to ‘doomscroll’

‘Doomscrolling’ is clearly not great for your mental health, yet it can be compulsive, and now US researchers have identified why. It’s down to areas within the brain that become active when an individual is faced with learning or hiding from information about an unwanted negative event that they probably don’t have any power to prevent. But researchers pointed out that the parts of your brain programmed to spot disaster coming aren’t built to cope with the digital world, and doomscrolling could be resculpting your grey matter.…
