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.
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.

These snacks are made for everyone!

It is beneficial for your own mental health to eating a food that satisfies your craving. If it is that sweet snack that you need, a little saccharine sweetness to help calm your mind, body and belly, then allow yourself to have something sweet. The sooner you do, the sooner you can move on with your day and with your diet. No harm done! Well, that is if you choose to satisfy your craving with a healthy sweet snack that sticks to your dietary guidelines…
If your cravings are strong, there is a second reason why you should never ignore them or try to ignore them and that is because of your mental health. If you are dying to eat something sweet, it may be all you can think about. You wake up and really want a sweet treat. If you choose not to satisfy this craving, that doesn’t mean the idea of eating something sweet goes away. You will be dwelling on that sweet snack at lunchtime and probably obsessing over it by dinner. If you do not satisfy your cravings, they will be the only thing you can think about. If you have ever diets or restricted what you eat then you know this is all to true! Cravings don’t just go away because you “choose” not to give in to them. Instead, they linger and grow until it is all you can think about.

If you’re looking to increase healthy fats, these low-carb fat bombs can help. Made with coconut butter, coconut oil, berries and lemon juice, they’re a terrific option if you’re following a ketogenic diet. One serving has 18.7 grams of fat! Coconut cream, butter, oil and other byproducts are an excellent source of healthy fats, and you don’t have to fear coconut’s saturated fat content.
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.
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.
