been realised with this compact standing

DIETS – always top of the agenda at the startoftheyear.
You won’t find the expert team at HFG promoting quick-fix faddiets,
though. We’re here to help you achieve your weight and healthgoalsallyear
round. To get you started, we asked dietitian Juliette Kellow to compile a comprehensive
food and drink portion guide. Think of it as your healthy eating template fortheyear,
treats included! They’re probably 14 of the most useful pages you’ll need tostayontrack.
Believe us, once you get your serving sizes in order, your waistline, healthandenergy
will all fall into place, too.
Our other, equally important, diet message is about adopting a healthy eatingplanto
improve specific health conditions. In our Special Section (p51), nutritioneditor
Amanda Ursell shares seven diets that really can turn your health around,
from high cholesterol to constipation. In this month’s recipe collection,
she’s chosen some of her favourite dishes to suit each plan.
If you’re doing Dry January or simply cutting down, Amanda’s feature on
the effects of alcohol will motivate you to stick with it – it’s a wake-up call for
us all, especially her guide to what one unit of alcohol really looks like (p82).
In true new-year tradition, we’ve covered the healthy food trends you need
