    Personally I am not a fan of cutting anything entirely from your diet — it’s rarely warranted medically and can leave you at risk of nutrition shortfalls. But plenty of the people I see in clinic have chosen at one stage or another to cut one staple out of their diets: bread. The low-carb movement, associations with weight gain and, of course, the gluten it contains have helped move bread to the dietary equivalent of the naughty step in many people’s eyes. But bread can be a convenient source of nutrients and, let’s face it, a nice slice of freshly baked bread is one of life’s pleasures — and I don’t want to start denying people those. Personally I am not a fan of cutting anything entirely from your diet — it’s rarely warranted medically and can leave you at risk of nutrition shortfalls, writes Dr Megan Rossi (pictured)  For any of you who have turned your back on bread, let me explain why you might want to think again. Grainy types of bread (sold as wholemeal, for example) can...
    The Princess of Wales has shared a good luck letter to England Rugby League teams today - as she said she 'can't wait to see' the players in action. Kate Middleton, 40, a patron of England Rugby since earlier this year, penned the note to the teams ahead of Samoa match, which kicks off at 2pm today. In the letter, which was shared online this morning, the royal mother-of-three said she was 'honored' to have been made patron for the Rugby Football League and that she was looking forward to a number of weeks of 'amazing rugby.'  She finished the letter: 'Good luck! I know you will do us all very proud and I can't wait to see you all in action.'  The royal was announced as the new patron of the Rugby Football League and the Rugby Football Union, roles previously held by her brother-in-law the Duke of Sussex in February.  She has a keen interest in sport, playing tennis and hockey from a young age, and is a firm rugby supporter as well, watching England games with the Middleton family...
    Mums and dads who spend too much time on their smartphones are more likely to be bad parents, a study has claimed. Those dealing with a stressful household often turned to social media to relax – but this in turn would only make them nag and yell more, researchers found. They questioned 549 adults, who had at least two children aged five to 19, on their use of digital media, mental health and parenting practices. The study revealed that as parents increasingly used social media to retreat from spending time with their family, the worse their parenting became.  Such negative parenting behaviour – such as ‘nagging or yelling’ – was also more likely to increase when ‘technology interrupted family interactions’, it found. Mums and dads who spend too much time on their smartphones are more likely to be bad parents, a study has claimed A vicious cycle was created in which parents with higher levels of stress were more likely to turn to their devices to relax. However, not all parents’ social media use was negative, with researchers finding it...
    A MONEY guru on TikTok has revealed several profitable side hustles that he says seem too good to be true but aren't. These secret side gigs may seem like a scam, but they have supposedly been tried by the expert himself. 2Jeremy shared unexpectedly profitable side hustles with his followers, including getting paid to test free goods via market researchCredit: TikTok/@ jezbreezy 2The TikTok expert allegedly worked a gig movie theatre checking for four years, prior to movie theatres slowing down drastically due to COVID-19Credit: TikTok/@ jezbreezy Jeremy Franco, @jebreezy on TikTok, exposed several jobs that seem laughably easy for the cash they generate. While the term market research represents a broad spectrum of opportunities, Jeremy isn't "talking about those shitty surveys that pay $2.00." There are "legitimate market research companies" that pay testers to use or taste their products. The best way to find these, Jeremy, says, is to go through a market research agency.

    YOUR eyesight could be as good as an astronaut’s if you can spot the space walker’s legs on the International Space Station. NASA astronaut Mark Vande Hei posted a picture from a Russian spacewalk and issued a challenge to viewers. 2Can you spot the astronaut's legs dangling over the side of the space station? Hidden in the picture is an astronaut's legs dangling off the side of the space station. In the picture, taken February 2 2018, a breath-taking view of Earth can be seen amid the vast landscape of space. Cosmonauts Alexander Misurkin and Anton Shkaplerov set a new record for the longest Russian spacewalk that day. The pair spent eight hours outside the ISS to install new parts to an antenna to improve communications with Russia's flight controllers on Earth, CNET reported.

    Looking forward to an afternoon nap this Easter Monday? Try squeezing your muscles first to increase the benefits of your snooze. People who intentionally tensed and then relaxed their large muscle groups before they drifted off had 125 per cent more deep sleep and an improved sleep pattern in their nap compared with those who had instead listened to relaxing music, researchers found. The team, from the University of California, Irvine and Princeton University in the US, studied 50 people as they lay down for a 1pm nap.  People who intentionally tensed and then relaxed their large muscle groups before they drifted off had 125 per cent more deep sleep. File image  Half followed a ten-minute recording of progressive muscle relaxation (PMR). The other half listened to ten minutes of Mozart music. Researchers found the two groups showed different sleeping brain rhythm patterns. Lead author Dr Katharine Simon said: ‘We found that those who engaged in PMR prior to sleep showed greater right-sided sleeping brain rhythm activity from the start – which we expect to see in more well-rested individuals.’ The...
    Attractive women have revealed how they have been given cash, free concert tickets and even better healthcare thanks to 'pretty privilege'.  Women from around the world have taken to TikTok in recent months to swap stories of the perks they've enjoyed simply because they are conventionally good looking, from free drinks to kinder treatment from strangers.  'Pretty privilege is about how people who are thought to be more attractive, according to society's norms, tend to receive more affirmation, validation,' pyschotherapist Lucy Beresford explained to FEMAIL. 'Or they might receive actual tangible benefits such as fame, fortune or romance.' TikTok user Anjola Fagbemi, who lives in Chicago, shared a TikTok recounting everything she had a received in a single summer as a result of her 'pretty privilege'. She claims she received concert tickets, free taxi rides, meals out and rounds of cocktails, solely because of her looks.  However other TikTok users who admitted to benefitting from 'pretty privilege' argued there are downsides, with some posters claiming they are more likely to be victims of sexual assault or harassment, struggle to make...
    Belichick should name rookie Mac Jones the starter for the Patriots' season opener Sept. 12 against Miami. According to reports, Newton will open the season as the Patriots' starter. It's a ceremonial position he'll hold for a game or two at best. This is Belichick's revenge year after he flopped in 2020 while Tom Brady won the Super Bowl for Tampa Bay. Belichick needs a quarterback. On Sunday in the preseason against the New York Giants, Newton completed 2 of 5 passes for 10 yards and an interception. Then Jones, without one bit of Newton's talent, kept completing passes downfield: 17 yards, 21, 19, 27, 30. He completed 10 of 14 for 156 yards and a 131.8 passer rating. What's wrong with Newton? Zolak had a point worth looking at. Instead, a woke media and Twitter mob won't allow any consideration of criticism of a black quarterback any more. Zolak spoke with knowledge about what it takes to play quarterback in the NFL. No one wanted to hear that because he was talking about a black quarterback and...
    By Holly Yan | CNN With millions more Americans getting vaccinated every day, some have complained about fever, fatigue and other ailments they weren’t expecting. Don’t panic, doctors say. Side effects from Covid-19 vaccines won’t last long. And they’re actually proof that your immune system is working the way it’s supposed to. (Though vaccines are still very effective even without side effects.) Here are some of the most common side effects from Covid-19 vaccines, how you can manage them, and why you shouldn’t use them as an excuse to skip vaccination: What are the most common side effects? “The kinds of things we’re seeing are arm soreness, body aches, sometimes fatigue, sometimes even low-grade fever,” said Dr. Peter Hotez, a vaccinologist and dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine. After he got his second dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine, “I had shaking chills for a couple of hours,” Hotez said. “And we know why this happens — because the vaccine is very potent in inducing an immune response. That’s one of the reasons why...

    (CNN)How's it going in that boiling lobster pot of stress? 5 science-backed ways to stop Covid-19 pandemic stress right now The last year of living in a pandemic has stretched human coping skills so thin that experts fear many of us may soon snap, leaving people around the world coping with a mental health crisis of catastrophic proportions. In the United States alone, a recent analysis by the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found reports of anxiety or depression climbed from 36% to 42% in the six months between August 2020 and February 2021. Yet some people -- in fact, many people -- somehow manage to weather stress just fine. Do those folks experience less pressure? That's certainly possible, since not everyone has worked in an essential job or lost a job during the pandemic, or worse, lost a family member to the virus. But it's also possible they have mastered the art of seeing stress as a normal, acceptable and even positive part of life.Read MoreWith that view, experts say, comes resilience. And just like rock,...
    Christopher Bell: I ‘want to be a factor’ The best breakfast burrito in every state Hey, Robinhood traders: These ‘non-bubble’ stocks can also be good bets for you © Courtesy Everett Collection DEEP DIVE Load Error Momentum trading is all the rage, at least on Reddit boards and on the Robinhood trading platform. But the principles of long-term investing haven’t changed. If you have a diversified strategy and stick with it, you are likely to have good compounded returns over the long haul. There are always people who are new to investing. And to trading. For those who are only thinking about price momentum or volatility, the lessons of long-term investing might seem boring, but they can also make you a lot of money. Why not learn about a non-trading approach that has proven to be profitable over the decades? Three professional investors gave examples of long-term investments during interviews. These selections are based on analysis of financial health, growth prospects and valuation of stocks against things that can be measured as well as estimates, such as earnings,...

    As far as love goes, the pandemic has proved paradoxical. On the one hand, lockdown has put huge stress on existing relationships. On the other, it has shown us what it is to be lonely and made us yearn for a significant other more than ever. Whichever way you look at it, there are bound to be a lot of new people looking for a date this year — and all confined to online, of course. The figures prove it already. Dating app Hinge reports that downloads are up 82 per cent year-on-year. And that’s especially significant because Hinge is the app for those seeking long-term relationships and not a casual fling. Launched in 2013 as the antithesis of Tinder, the app that kick-started the swipe left or right hook-up culture, Hinge has now match-made thousands of long-term partnerships and marriages. Who better to help you navigate this new landscape, bursting with potential dates, than Hinge’s own director of relationship science Logan Ury (pictured with her husband), a behavioural expert who studied psychology at Harvard University The fact that...
    (CNN)Educated people who live in rich countries are far less likely to say belief in God is necessary for good morals, according to a massive new survey of 38,000 people in 34 countries. The survey, released Monday by the Pew Research Center, revealed a gaping "God gap" between relatively rich and poor countries. In Kenya, for example, the country with the lowest gross domestic product per capita in the survey, 95% of people said belief in God is necessary for a person to be moral. In Sweden, the richest country, just 9% of people connected God with good morals. (The survey did not break down respondents by religion.) Even within countries, the rich and poor don't agree on God and morality, the survey said.Read MoreIn the United States, to take one example, there is a gap of 24 percentage points between high and low income Americans.

    An ex-vegan is calling for people to ditch plant-based diets and eat more offal, arguing meat is environmentally friendly provided it's sustainably sourced. Former research biochemist Robb Wolf, from the US, who co-authored the book Sacred Cow: The Case for (Better) Meat with dietitian Diana Rodgers, suffered from ulcerative colitis, a long-term condition where the colon and rectum become inflamed, while following a vegan diet. He was due for a bowel resection and was on statins, blood pressure medications and antidepressants, but then switched to a high protein paleo diet, which includes lean meats and fish as well as fruit and vegetables, and his problems resolved within months. He and Diana, who also improved her digestive issues provoked by coeliac disease by swapping from gluten-free packaged food to 'whatever meat and vegetables I have in the house', argue eating well-raised meat can be good for you and the planet. Robb Wolf, from the US, suffered from ulcerative colitis, a long-term condition where the colon and rectum become inflamed, while following a vegan diet Speaking to the Daily Telegraph, they explained that humans 'did...
