Rosie Huntington Whiteley on her intermittent fasting routine

25/01/2020

Supermodel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has said that she practices intermittent fasting – meaning that she eats within an eight to 10-hour window. “It gives my body a chance to digest everything,” she told this weekend’s issue of The Sunday Times Style magazine. Whether this is an evidence-backed lifestyle is still pending.

16/01/2020

Detox can mean so many things. A few years ago, we detoxed for our colon, which was more a means for weight loss and not really about our health. Now, it’s trendier to detox for our liver.

This 8-Minute Morning Stretch Routine Could Change Your Life

03/01/2020

If the only kind of stretching on your radar is that grab-the-back-of-your-chair-and-twist thing, we need to talk. That move isn’t doing a damn thing, says Kayla Itsines, certified personal trainer and co-creator of the BBG workout on the SWEAT app. “When you’re twisting, you’re trying to crack your lower back and ease the tightness,” says Itsines, who just launched her first BBG beginner program. “But the reason your lower back hurts is because your glutes and hamstrings are tense.” And that twisty motion…

Why you might struggle more doing cardio in the winter

18/12/2019

Doing cardio during the winter can feel tough for various reasons, the first being the short number of light hours in the day, which cruelly limits the time you have outdoors to run (where it is, admittedly, far more pleasant to exercise than on a treadmill). Then there’s the fact that it’s freezing outside, and that usually means you want to do very little else aside from cosy up indoors with a blanket and/or a glass of red wine. Not exactly conducive…

So, how can you begin…
