A word from our editor, plus prizes to WIN!
As a dietitian, a common question I get asked is “Is middle-aged spread inevitable?” It’s a frustration for many men and women entering their 30s, 40s and 50s. And the answer is “no”. Belly fat doesn’t have to be a part of getting older, as long as you take steps to prevent (or reverse) it.
And that’s where HFG comes in. Every recipe in the magazine has been nutritionally analysed to help you maintain a healthy weight, no matter your age. Turn to page 43 to discover this month’s delicious array of recipes — from Mediterraneaninspired dinners to meat-free mains, and low-kilojoule muffins.
Meanwhile, we know that no two journeys to better health are the same, and this is especially true for one of our readers, who also happens to be my sister. She bravely shares her weight-loss surgery journey which helped her lose 42kg. It’s an inspiring read on page 32.
We also have a fantastic story about brain ageing. If your keep forgetting where you put your keys, turn to page 26 to learn the foods to boost your brain power
And as always, there’s plenty of shopping advice from page 79, including easy ways to make your breakfast more nutritious.
Enjoy this month’s issue!
