For reversing the epidemic of chronic disease and healing the environment, food is the most powerful tool we have. What we eat has tremendous implications not just for our waistline, but for the planet, for society and the global economy. With the emergence of Covid-19, we have all had to adapt physically and mentally. Nutrition is without doubt one of the quintessential pillars of wellness and if we didn’t give it much thought before, the...

At livehealthy.ae, we like to know what’s in our food, especially the sugar content. That’s why we are telling you what’s in some of the most common items we eat and drink – and the news might surprise you. That protein bar? Five teaspoons. A Spanish latte? Eight. We are all good at rationalizing what we eat, as evidenced by a recent article in The Independent in which readers were shocked to learn that their favorite...

We here at livehealthy.ae are shying away from the term “clean” for several reasons: because we believe in moderation, because people are suffering from eating disorders in pursuit of an impossible notion and because we don’t see any food as “good” or “bad.” But the reality is, food intolerances are a growing issue these days and a lot of desserts are laden with dairy or gluten, which makes them off-limits for those who don’t want...

I didn’t always crave sugar or feel shame when I ate it. When I was a toddler, my mother used to leave me a little pile of raisins or marshmallows on the kitchen table so I could grab a snack when I wanted. By all accounts I hate them sparingly and happily. When I was a little older, she’d hand me a little bag of soft banana candies from the corner store when we went...

This article is part of #HOWSWEETITISN’T — a series in which livehealthy.ae takes a closer look at how sugar affects our health. When cutting down on refined sugar, it is natural to try to replace that sweet taste with what can be perceived as guilt-free substitutes.  In many ways sugars found in honey, maple syrup and other natural forms can be a healthier alternative, because they also contain nutrients not found in refined table sugar. But they...

#HOWSWEETITISNT is a series of articles, infographics and videos, where livehealthy.ae takes a closer look at scientific and anecdotal evidence telling us why and how the sugar we love to eat is hurting our health – and what we need to do about it.  I do love coffee, and enjoy one on most days, although there was a time when I thought I’d have to say goodbye to my daily cup of caffeine-fuelled good vibes. ...

HOW SWEET IT ISN’T: On December 1, the UAE government enacted its first-ever tax on sugary drinks. And on January 1, many people will vow once again to change their eating habits for good. That’s why livehealthy.ae is taking a closer look at scientific and anecdotal evidence telling us that the sugar we love to eat is hurting our health. It is potentially more addictive than tobacco, harder to metabolize than fat and wreaks havoc...
