With New Year’s resolutions behind most people already, the Citizen explores our difficult relationship with what we eat


By the end of January, most people have already given up on their new year’s resolutions. By far the most popular new year’s resolutions, already abandoned, involve getting healthier – with one common element. Getting fit, giving up appetite-suppressing nicotine, losing weight or changing one’s diet – it all tends to come back to one thing: our difficult relationship with food. But while some are trying to eat differently against the backdrop of weather that naturally drives us to tuck into our favourite things, others are just struggling to get enough. That’s why, at this time of year when we’re all wresting with food one way or another, we’ve made this issue all about it. From the worrying rise of foodbanks to an obesity ‘epidemic’. From one man’s seismic dietary shift to veganism, to some practical get-fit advice from Crystal Palace FC’s fitness coach himself, Scott Guyett. And, of course, a citizen’s review of their new favourite local restaurant.

But there’s plenty more besides including: your monthly dose of political insight from the Public Gallery, a proposal for grammar schools in Croydon, an exploration of the Croydon connections of Oscar-nominated 12 Years A Slave and lots of coverage of #Croydon #TechCity. Download now.
