Welcome to your new look Health and Living magazine. You will find all your old favourites - the most up-to-date news, nutrition and parenting advice, as well as some new additions.
Our cover story this week is an interview with 'Loose Women's' Claire Sweeney. She talks about the joy of impending motherhood at age 43.
We also have some interesting new research that throws light on the rationale behind our seemingly irrational fears and we meet some raw food advocates, one of whom shares a delicious chocolate cake recipe.
Rozanne Stevens tells us about Camelina, an ancient super oil from the Bronze Age that is being revived and cultivated here in Ireland and she has three mouth-watering recipes for you to try.
We are well into the second half of our #100FITDays campaign and Siobhan Byrne has our new workout plus some great nutrition advice.
I talk to Australia's leading weight-loss motivation coach, Kylie Ryan, to get some tips for those of us following the plan and she had some very interesting things to say about our emotional relationship with food and eating.
Kylie herself is an inspiration having lost an amazing 30kg - that's 4.75 stone - a decade ago and she has managed to keep it off, so she is well worth listening to. We also look at the very popular HIIT, or high intensity interval training, and meet three participants who have found that it changed their lives.
