Everyone's lives are busy, but it can be hard to track down truly useful health advice. In this special edition of BBC Focus Magazine, experts reveal the science behind what really works.

Is the leftover Christmas cake more appealing than one of your five a day? Has the Fitbit been replaced by the remote control? If you’re already struggling with your New Year’s Resolutions, you’re not alone.


Everyone’s lives are busy, making it all too easy to fill up on unhealthy snacks or skip a workout. We all know we should eat healthily, exercise and get some good shut-eye. But how much cardio do you need to fight the flab? What diet is right for you? How many hours of sleep do you need a night?

It can be hard to track down useful advice when websites, magazines and books all seem to offer confusing and conflicting info. So, in this special issue, we’ve cut through the jargon to reveal the science behind what really works – and what doesn’t.

Inside you'll find…

- In-depth articles on the latest discoveries

- Interviews with scientists and doctors

- Top tips from experts on how to stay healthy

- Q&A special: health questions answered
