Put down the weight-loss smoothie and indulge in some carbs.
It's true that the COVID-19 pandemic has not been kind to our bodies; many of us have found ourselves eating our way out of our slim-fitting clothes and if the prospect of a new diet seems daunting you are not alone. Today is all about letting go of that need to have that "summer body" the magazines always talk about and embrace the body you have.

The singer came under fire for her 10-day detox.
So here's the thing: We all know that fad diets are ineffective in the long term and often come with a number of health risks, and frankly any celebrity out there promoting them for the purpose of weight loss should be held accountable. However, Lizzo is not one of those celebrities.

The 32-year-old popstar came under fire this week when she shared on social media that she was undergoing the JJ Smith 10-Day Green Smoothie Cleanse, followed by videos of her showing off the results on her body. Unsurprisingly, a number of critics came out of the woodwork to share their opinion on her lifestyle choice.
Artists are coming up with different ways to entertain and help out this year.
Plenty of artists have been donating money to various organisations, and plenty more have been taking part in virtual concert series as we all do our best to navigate the uncertain, isolating waters of the coronavirus pandemic. But many musicians are also taking it upon themselves to help people in other unusual ways.

The full daily schedule has now been announced for Forecastle 2015.
Forecastle Festival has finally completed its 2015 line-up and announced the full day-by-day schedule for the coming event, which is set to hit Louisville, Kentucky yet again in July. Plus, you'll very soon be able to purchase single day tickets for each day.
Joining the stellar line-up headlined by the already announced Sam Smith, locals My Morning Jacket and Widespread Panic are The War On Drugs, ZZ Ward, Robert DeLong and Mariachi el Bronx among a handful of others. With such talent expected every day between July 17th and 19th, 2015 is shaping up to be an important year for Forecastle.
Schedule clashes were the only possible thing that could have dampened the atmosphere at Live At Leeds 2014, with Loiners citywide basking in the bank holiday sunshine and wondering whether it was even worth wandering back into the Cockpit to catch that new local band, given such glorious conditions outside.
But wander back in they did and, as ever with Live at Leeds, the spark of excitement and energy was fixed solely on those on stage - though the weather certainly helped.
Gone were many of the marquee bookings of last year - think Laura Mvula, Everything Everything and The Walkmen - with the focus for 2014 being on home-grown talent and the showcasing of a couple of new venues. It began at the First Direct Arena, the new pod-like hub for mainstream music in the city, which served as the festival's wristband exchange, and also just around the corner at Belgrave Music Hall.

Live at Leeds 2014 is now just days away. Here's our preview of this UK's premiere inner-city festival.
It's been eight years since a bunch of music venues in Leeds first opened their doors to hardy metropolitan festival-goers for Live At Leeds. Following the tried and tested format of SXSW and the Camden Crawl, Live at Leeds has risen to become the country's foremost inner-city gathering of bands, musicians and like-minded music fans.
Though the booking is invariably spot-on, key to Live at Leeds' popularity is the quality of the venues, including The Cockpit, The Hi-Fi Club and the stalwart Brudenell Social Club. The bustling Belgrave Music Hall is a welcome addition to this year's festival. In order of appearance, here are 10 of our suggestions for this years event.
