- My friends are all skinny and happy and I can’t talk to my parents about my obsession with my weight. It’s driven me to the edge. Annalisa Barbieri advises a readerI’m overweight for my age (I’m 13 and 60kg or 9.5 stone) and it’s consumed my life. I can’t go shopping with my friends in town because I can’t let them know my clothing size. If I sit down I’m always conscious that I look fat. If I take off my coat I feel people judging my waist. I drea
- A new app that enables you to email memos to yourself? How revolutionary.

And the phrase is

- The water was murky, so I couldn’t see anything. It just came out of nowhere and then it was gone in a flashI have been doing triathlons for nearly 20 years now. I am always aware of the danger of sharks when ocean swimming, but where I train, Corona del Mar in southern California, is considered a safe area. I always thought it would be more likely for me to have a car accident than be bitten by a shark.On 29 May last year, I was training for a half Ironman race. I decided to do my swim tr
- The chef gets that eating out should be about pleasure. This is rarer than you think In an interview with BBC Good Food magazine, I said that the element of my job I liked least was the thought of savaging mom’n’pop outfits, restaurants that are the life’s blood of individuals, rather than those designed by corporations or backed by dead-eyed moneymen. Restaurants owned by ghost-written “celebrity” chefs, or anything with gurning greengrocer Gregg Wallace attac
- Sent to the sofa, given the silent treatment … punishments hardly ever achieve their aim, because if people ever change it is because they choose toI have just learned that a new and possibly entirely unreliable survey claims that the average Briton spends 66 nights banned from the marital bed over the course of their marriage. That sounds about right to me, although I have never kept count.A number of reasons may be proffered – sneezing, coughing, fidgeting, farting, snoring and so

- I’ve never met any of his friends either. And I also recently discovered some texts on his phone from another womanI have been seeing someone for the past 12 months whom I love very much.

- Chargrilling aubergine equates to a lovely smoky flavour – and an arduous hour scrubbing the panWhen I order in a restaurant, there are always two things that are uppermost in my mind. The first is to be nicer than the array of pampered children, aggressive parents and listless elder siblings that I had to serve in the restaurant I once worked in. The second is to order something I couldn’t cook for myself at home.Ordering a meal you can cook yourself only ends in disaster. It might
- Fresh fish for breakfast, canned oysters from the pharmacy and his dad’s fritters make up Peter Gordon’s nostalgic meal de choix.When I was growing up, my father Bruce wanted us all to like oysters.
