In our new documentary, Digital Editor Robert Hicks speaks to three young men who all attempted to take their own lives. Here, they talk about what they were feeling when they believed there was no way out. How #depression grabbed them and wouldn't let go. They reflect on what's happened since, how they cope and, most importantly, how they are doing better.

The only way to really stop a true sugar addiction is to cut it out completely. If you are opting for a low carb diet in order to do this, then those sugar cravings should be treated differently. If you are trying to overcome a so-called addiction, then avoid sugar. However, if you are just on a low carb diet in order to live healthier and possibly lose some weight, then a craving for something sweet is a craving you should abide by!
Looking for a small pre-workout nosh? This is it! The almonds in this snack pack are a good source of the amino acid L-arginine, which can help the body burn more fat and carbs during sweat sessions.

In 1999, Men's Health sponsored a British UCI Division 3 professional cycle racing team. The Director Sportif was Sid Barras, a former professional cyclist. Although the team achieved numerous successes during the year, sponsorship was not renewed in 2000. Team members included Welshmen Matt Beckett and Huw Pritchard, a medal-winning Commonwealth Games competitor.
I wont complain about the magazine changing over time, and apparently paying for a magazine subscription doesnt remove the nearly half of it thats filled with ads. Todays issues still do contain some useful advice on working out, fitness, sex, grooming tips, nutrition, and occasional articles you wont want to skip. The working out and fitness are more detailed, while the nutrition and health dont always go in depth. For example talking about the huge problem of infertility was basic about alcohol, tobacco, cannabis, diet and exercise rather then the real issues like endocrine disruptors in plastics, chemicals, estrogens from heavy metals and other sources, emf/wifi etc. Get a haircut...and then get a job. Clean your act up, and dont be a slob. At least you can rub those samples of colognes over you which might help your chances since women respond to scent more then bank account balances.

Tips for Success: Read your labels. Watch out for hidden carbs; to calculate the grams of carbs that impact your blood sugar, subtract the number of grams of dietary fiber from the total number of carb grams. Also double-check serving sizes on labels; some foods and drinks are actually two or more servings, so you need to add in those extra carbs and calories.
Even kale haters come around when they taste kale chips. Some store-bought varieties have less than 10 grams of carbs. You can cut that number even further by making them at home. Tear the leaves from a bunch of kale. Rinse and dry them. Toss with 1 tablespoon of oil and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Roast them in your oven at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until the kale is crispy.
Hi Bonnie. Yeah, added sugar in lunch meat is something to watch out for sure, great point. I have been able to find some here and there with no added sugar at all. Many times I’ve seen when it does contain sugar it is only 1-2 grams. So 6 slices for example might just be one gram of carbs. It really depends on how strict you are eating keto. Some people would completely avoid it because the sugar is technically not keto, other people might just look at it with a carb standpoint only. Very important to look out for though, especially for labels that say “sweet”, “honey”. etc. I typically avoid those ones all together.

Your Paleo Scotch eggs and stuffed avocado look awesome- thank you! I pretty much start out every day with a handful of nuts. I learned this habit from Tim Ferriss in The Four Hour Body. In ‘The End of Overeating’, David Kessler recommends snacking between meals as a strategy for not overeating at mealtimes. Don’t quote me, but I think he suggests 200 to 300 calories snacks and 500-600 calorie meals. I recommend both books.

Just because you’re on a low-carb diet doesn’t mean you have to go hungry. Thanks to their high water content, carrots are one of the most satiating veggies out there, making this grab-and-go snack pack a solid pick. Bonus: The carrots are accompanied by a package of seasoning that punches up the flavor, similar to dips and dressings, but without the excess calories or fat. If you’re worried about the sodium (one of the 50 Little Things Making You Fatter and Fatter), simply use half of the seasonings packet.

Looking for a new way to make healthy chips? Then you have to try these tomato chips. You’ll slice big, juicy tomatoes into thick slices and drizzle them with benefit-rich olive oil. After sprinkling them with Parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings, they’ll slow bake for several hours. The result is a tray full of low-carb snacks that are actually good for you!
