Wel­come

Healthy Food Guide (Australia) - - EDITOR’S TOP PICKS -

You may know how it feels to eat some­thing re­ally de­li­cious only to be struck down with tummy pains soon af­ter. Ir­ri­ta­ble Bowel Syn­drome (IBS) af­fects one in five of us, and for some peo­ple, it’s a re­cur­ring night­mare. It is now un­der­stood that food is just one of the main trig­gers be­hind this de­bil­i­tat­ing con­di­tion. How anx­ious or stressed we are can also play a ma­jor role in trig­ger­ing IBS.

This month, we speak with for­mer world swim­ming champ Hay­ley Lewis as she shares her own bat­tles with IBS, which be­gan when she was train­ing and smash­ing world records. See her per­sonal story on page 44.

Mean­time, we’ve also cre­ated spe­cial recipes for you that avoid the known trig­ger foods for IBS, while tick­ing all the health and taste boxes, too. See page 52.

Our cover story this month on age­ing should res­onate with many peo­ple as well. I al­ways find it fas­ci­nat­ing at re­unions of old col­leagues or class­mates to see how life is etched on ev­ery­one’s faces — some­times for bet­ter, oth­ers for worse. So this month, we bring you some im­por­tant in­sights into the healthy eat­ing habits that can make a dif­fer­ence to how old you look and feel now and for decades to come. See page 32. So en­joy this month! An­drea Du­vall, Ed­i­tor
