A word from our ed­i­tor, plus prizes to WIN! WEL­COME

There isn’t much I like about win­ter — the cold nights and dark morn­ings aren’t my thing — but I do love the food. Hearty pas­tas, spicy cur­ries and cold-weather favourites like soup and toasties are ab­so­lutely my thing. The prob­lem is, of­ten the food we crave over win­ter is what leaves our pants feel­ing a lit­tle snug come Septem­ber. In fact, most of us will prob­a­bly gain up to five kilo­grams over the win­ter, ac­cord­ing to re­search.

That’s where we come in. At Healthy Food Guide, we want you to en­joy the com­fort foods you crave, without the weight gain. From page 43, we have loads of de­li­cious, hearty and low-kilo­joule recipes.

While some of us find we sleep bet­ter in win­ter, we all know how it feels to get a bad night’s sleep. But did you know that the hours of shut-eye you get each night are linked to how much you weigh? Turn to page 20 to find out more.

Di­a­betes Aware­ness Week falls in the month of July, so we have re­searched a must-read ar­ti­cle on page 30 that lays to rest some com­mon di­a­betes myths. Two mil­lion Aussies now have the con­di­tion, so you may know some­one who has it, or have it your­self. Turn to page 56 to find easy, low-GI recipes, plus our 7–day menu on page 90.

Cosy up and en­joy the is­sue! Brooke Long­field, Ed­i­tor
