ED­I­TOR’S LET­TER

Best Health - - CONTENTS -

…IS A BIG DEAL. DO YOU RE­MEM­BER hit­ting dou­ble dig­its? Such a heady ex­pe­ri­ence! Nine was just be­ing a kid, but 10, well, that was ad­mis­sion to a whole new world – some­thing big­ger, bet­ter and in­fin­itely more ex­cit­ing.

That’s just one rea­son why we’re so thrilled to share this is­sue of Best

Health as we cel­e­brate our 10th year in pub­lish­ing – no mean feat in this day and age!

We’ve cre­ated some amaz­ing food and drink recipes to mark the mile­stone in fes­tive and healthy ways (pages 52, 62 and 68), and we’re su­perex­cited to be giv­ing away a fab­u­lous seven-day stay for two in sunny Florida. You can read all about this dream va­ca­tion, in­clud­ing how to en­ter, on page 46. Good luck!

But a big birth­day is more than just about celebrating; it’s also about tak­ing stock of where you’re at while fig­ur­ing out what you need to move for­ward. That’s why we’ve dusted off one of our favourite health quizzes from our very first is­sue (page 40). Take it now to find out how healthy you are, and keep read­ing the magazine to find ways to en­hance or cal­i­brate as nec­es­sary. As a Best Health reader, you know how crit­i­cal good health is and that you need to make every ef­fort count to­ward that ul­ti­mate well­ness goal. That’s why I love our ar­ti­cle on the ten health fads that re­ally are healthy (page 28). It of­fers up quick and easy ways to get – and stay – on the path to well­ness. A per­fect birth­day present, I think.

This is­sue is spe­cial in other ways, too: It’s the first in our ad­justed fre­quency of six is­sues per year, an al­ter­ation made to man­age the ris­ing costs in pa­per and postage. What doesn't change, though, is our com­mit­ment to pro­vid­ing you with the same great con­tent you've come to ex­pect from

BH. And for read­ers who signed up for seven is­sues, don’t worry: If you’ve paid for seven is­sues, you’ll still re­ceive seven is­sues – our sub­scrip­tion will sim­ply ex­tend to cover any dis­crep­ancy.

To all of our long-time read­ers, many of you whom have been with us from day one, thank you! And to all our new read­ers, wel­come to the club. It’s a pretty nice place to spend some time and a great way to get healthy. Here’s to the next 10 years!

Yours in Best Health,
