Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - NEWS - Brooke Long­field, Ed­i­tor

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!
