Eat Clean, Prep Dirty
It’s a truism that a great physique starts in the kitchen, but keep taking culinary shortcuts and your progress will falter. To see the biggest changes to your body, you need to get physical with your food. So roll up, get hands on – and work out
DESPITE OUR fondness for MasterChef, we spend half as much time in the kitchen now as 30 years ago. There are two reasons why this is bad. One: it likely means more plasticpacked junk on your plate. Two: you’re missing out on a killer workout. There are major advantages to getting your hands dirty in the kitchen. The University of Birmingham found taking time to prepare your meals from scratch cuts your kilojoule intake by 50%. And the harder you work for your dinner, the beefier its benefits. Expand your repertoire with help from some of the finest chefs. Go on – your body will savour it.
