Meat substitutes have come a long way since those first-generation rubber tofu concoctions. Some offer more flavor than a fast-food patty—with less fat and fewer calories. Lately, faux meat has ventured out of health food aisles and snuggled up to its beefy cousins on backyard grills across the country. If you want to try it out, Tara Gidus, a nutritionist and spokesperson for the American Dietetic Association, recommends that you begin with burgers and crumbles, which can substitute for ground beef. But check

the label: “Don’t just assume that because it’s vegetarian it’s low fat,” says Gidus. “I’ve seen soy sausages that have 12 grams of fat, which is nearly as much as some meat sausages.” We corralled a herd of carnivores to taste-test these substitutes. Turn the page for their verdicts. ve seen soy sausages that have 12 grams of fat, which is nearly as

One night last spring, 29-year-old Keri Federici prepared, served, and ate the evening meal at a homeless shelter in Naperville, Illinois. The patrons appreciated her charity and her company at the table. And Federici found another kind of nourishment. Filled with self-loathing, she had spent the past five years battling bulimia; she had even begun punching herself in the stomach. “I didn’t know who I was anymore,” says Federici. “I didn’t think there was a life beyond such behavior.” That all changed when she joined the Eating Disorders Program at Linden Oaks at Edward hospiGetting help for tal, where Maria Rago, PhD, is clinical director. those gotta-go Four years ago, Rago developed a novel treatment moments One of the for the women at her clinic—feeding homeless most common medical people.

I had to remind myself that it was for people who were suffering.”Seeing real need up close shifts her patients’ focus, Rago believes. “When they volunteer, they are powerfully engaged in making the world a better place. It boosts their sense of self-esteem and value.” The lessons go beyond feeding the hungry. Federici felt that sitting down and eating with the homeless was key to her recovery. “Here I was taking food for granted and denying myself, and there was this group of homeless people who needed food and couldn’t get it,” she says. “Once we were in the actual process of making the meals, it was suddenly like I didn’t have an eating disorder.

Anyone can learn something new, but how do you keep it from slipping out the back door of your brain? Four ways to make the information stick. Cramming for exams in a haze of No-Doz is the kind of activity one can only hope to outgrow. But demands for retaining new information hardly end with graduation—there are speeches to be delivered, opportunities to work abroad if you can learn the language fast, professional certifications, boards and bars to pass. Should you pull allnighters? Study till you drop? What’s the best way to hang on to what you learn? If possible, always try to break up learning into separate sessions, rather than studying in a nose-to-the-grindstone

marathon, according to Doug Rohrer, PhD, associate professor of psychology at the University of South Florida, who has conducted several experiments in this area. “Say you take French eight hours a day for two weeks—language immersion courses yield excellent performance right after the class. However, if you want to know French in the long run, you’re much better off spending that same amount of time distributed across a semester or a year.” When you space out learning like this, he says, “you can have up to 100 percent
