editor’s letter

TO UNPICK THE CRISIS OF MENTAL ILL HEALTH, WE NEED TO FOCUS ON HOW IT BEGINSAs a rule, we’re not given to dedicating many column inches to kids in Men’s Health. The clue’s in the name, really. We’ve done parenthood, (in)fertility and family finances, but never has a teenager graced the cover of this magazine until now. It is a watershed.So, why the change of heart?Over the past five years, we have increasingly devoted our (and hopefully your) attentions to the parlous state of mental health in men. We have been single-handedly responsible for that wretched statistic – that for men under 45, the thing most likely to kill you is you – becoming common knowledge. And we sincerely hope that the work we’ve done has made some kind of…

THE BIG QUESTIONQ WILL CARDIO CAUSE MY HARD-EARNED MUSCLE GAINS TO WASTE AWAY?IAN, YORKYou’re not the first man to struggle with this misapprehension, Ian, and doubtless won’t be the last. Folk wisdom has long held that chasing stamina will burn away muscle.It’s nonsense. For a start, this takes a hopelessly narrow-minded view of what cardio is. It’s not just long runs, weekend sportives and mind-numbing sessions on the Versaclimber. By definition, cardio is any exercise that raises your heart rate for an extended period, increasing your endurance and expanding your lung capacity. And it includes everything from Hero WODs to sex. “Too many people look at training as cardio or strength,” says PT Jonny Jacobs. Sure, focusing exclusively on running means you’ll end up losing muscle mass. However, doing nothing…

AM I NORMAL?Q I EAT WELL ALL WEEK BUT GO TO PIECES AT WEEKENDS. CAN I BREAK THIS CYCLE?CHRIS, LEICESTERYou’re not alone. The weekend cheat day is becoming a staple of gym culture. Case in point: the Rock and his giant pancake feasts. But, like those 4am wake-up calls, not everything Dwayne can handle works for the rest of us.A famine-and-feast eating pattern can play havoc with your blood sugar levels. Studies show that a day of undisciplined eating can cause “rebound sadness” two days later. But eating “clean” all the time can also end in tears: “Most people binge when they find their diets boring or restrictive,” says nutritionist Ben Coomber. He advises working non-optimal foods into your diet through the week, ensuring they don’t exceed 20% of your…

Please have mercy! I’m horrendously hungover. Can anything ease my suffering?Ah, poppet! Drink lots of water – sounds obvious, but it works. Add a rehydration sachet like Dioralyte to replace minerals.Will a bacon sarnie help?Not if you feel sick, no. Just stick with water until you’re over the worst of it.My head is killing me too…Try soluble paracetamol. It’s faster than a tablet. Aspirin might irritate your stomach.Is Berocca any use to me?It won’t “cure” you, but it will replace the B and C vitamins, which you lose after drinking.TBH, though, it’s all a bit late now. To dodge a hangover, you really need to have done all this after drinking but before going to sleep. Next time, eh?Rita Ghelani, pharmacistANCIENT SOLUTION TO A MODERN PROBLEMQ I’ve given up alcohol,…
