    Eating a burger doesn’t make you fat, eating more calories that you burn off each day eventually will (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    A fistful of fries, glistening with salt and dunked in ketchup, definitely isn’t the smartest, healthiest eating option.

    But treating yourself to them occasionally won’t suddenly make your heart putter to a stop, your legs swell twice their size nor clog your arteries.

    We don’t eat purely for the purposes of physical health. Eating is emotional. We eat for enjoyment, for pleasure, for comfort.

    You’ll know that if you’ve ever eaten warming tomato soup when you’re feeling ill (it’s not actually packed with healing properties), had ice cream from the tub… Read the full story

    An adorable pup had a birthday party thrown for him – and was caught on camera celebrating with five other dogs, wearing party hats and eating birthday cake.

    The five fluffy pals sat around the table as their owner, Katelyn Hoglund, sang them happy birthday and dished them up some birthday cake.

    In super cute footage, the dogs are seen patiently sitting in chairs waiting to dig into the cake.

    Most people accept that if you want to go vegan, that’s your choice.

    Raising children on exclusively plant-based diets, however, is slightly more contentious. In 2016, an Italian MP even said that parents may face a prison if they bring their kids up vegan.

    And now parents are kicking off at a nursery for feeding their children vegan food – without their consent.

    A mum, Aimee, has turned to parenting site Netmums to say that she’s fuming that her son’s nursery has changed their menu to vegan and the children are being offered no fish or meat option with their meals.

    The nursery’s deputy manager is… Read the full story

    This is real, we promise (Picture: Garfield Eats)

    GarfieldEATS is a food delivery app which only serves Garfield themed food.

    The app launched in Dubai in February and gives users a complete Garfield experience, with cartoons, augmented reality, and – the most crucial part – food.

    It sells wholesome versions of Garfield’s favourite foods like healthy lasagne, wood-fired pizza and 100% Arabica coffee.

    The app delivers quickly to anybody in Dubai – who knew the original grumpy cat had such a fan base there, hey?

    The best bit about the app is that it’s environmentally conscious, adhering to strict supply sourcing guidelines, and guaranteeing no GMOs,… Read the full story

    ILLUSTRATION REQUEST: Brown men don’t cry – how a culture of shame stops South Asian men talking about mental health (Rupen Gahir Kalsi)
    (Picture: Ella Byworth for Metro.co.uk)

    Intrusive thoughts are involuntary, distressing thoughts.

    They’re upsetting, make you feel guilty and make you fear you are an awful person.

    They can become so frequent that they take up a large part of your day.

    Intrusive thoughts are one of the main symptoms of OCD – and often sufferers attempt to relieve the anxiety the thoughts cause with compulsions and rituals.

    However, intrusive thoughts can also affect those with depression and anxiety, and can make day-to-day living extremely hard.

    Some thoughts can be so debilitating that they… Read the full story

    If you live in Manchester and you’re a lover of gin, you’ll be excited as we are to learn that there’s soon going to be a gin and tonic vending machine coming to the city.

    The gin and tonic vending machine is set to be installed at the Deansgate entrance to Barton Arcade on 16 and 17 April from 12-9pm.

    The cans of gin are totally free, as long as you tag @LoneWolfSpirits, the company behind the gin, in an Instagram or Twitter post of the location, in exchange for a token for the cans of gin.

    Doug Bairner, managing director of LoneWolf, told Manchester Evening News: ‘Gin distillation is… Read the full story

    We’ve fallen in love with a pooch who absolutely adores fashion.

    Jackson, a one-year-old Chinese Shar-Pei, loves nothing more than getting dolled up for the camera and strutting his stuff in tailor-made doggy clothing.

    His devoted owner, Christine Anthony, has splashed out £1,000 on tailor-made shirts, pyjamas and hats for her beloved pup.

    According to Christine, whenever Jackson sees her camera or a shirt being taken out he races onto the bed and is eager to put his best paw forward.

    How to not unintentionally be a d*ck to women in the street

    Many of you may have seen the recent video from @realest_lk, which showed him chasing a woman down the street for changing her direction when she saw him.

    The man taking the video seemed very clear on the fact it was due to his race.

    Yomi Adegoke at The Pool discussed the video itself and brought to light the obliviousness some men have when it comes to how their very presence is perceived – particularly in ‘dangerous’ situations like a street at night.

    In the article, Yomi referred to this post added by an anonymous man on Spotted Cardiff who… Read the full story

    When wondering how to store your cheese, just remember WWWAGD? (What Would Wallace And Gromit Do?) (Picture: Aardman)

    Cheese. Sometimes it is just too much to handle in one go.

    And at that point, it might seem tempting to wrap up your block of cheddar and stick it in the freezer.

    Alternatively, you may wish to eat cheese in the event of a nuclear apocalypse, which would require you to store it for an indefinite amount of time. Potentially in a freezer.

    But is this the done thing? What happens to cheese when you store it below zero degrees? Is it healthy to eat frozen cheese?

    Remember when your mum would cut a hole in a bin bag for Halloween and (with the addition of a spooky hat) you’d be a witch for the day?

    Would you like to recreate that as an adult for the cost of £645?

    Well, your time is now young fashionista, thanks to Spanish fashion house Balenciaga.

    The guys that brought us platform crocs, and a remake of an IKEA bag that cost £1,600 are back again with an outlandish style that’ll likely be gracing the streets of Hackney in t-minus two days.

    Thoughts? (Picture: Heinz/Metro.co.uk)

    Heinz has created a sauce called Mayochup, which quick-thinkers among you will have already figured out is mayonnaise mixed with ketchup.

    The sauce is available in the Middle East in 400ml squeezy bottles, ready to slosh all over your food.

    However, there’s been outcry on the internet because most of us have been making this sauce since we were first able to swallow solids.

    Which self-respecting kid didn’t have a pool of ketchup, a pool of mayo, and a mix of the two on their plate alongside their fish fingers and chips?

    Also, we all know the concoction is actually just seafood sauce, which is readily available in jars, and may… Read the full story

    An avid Barbie fan has amassed more than 10,000 of the dolls – and claims to have spent more than £350,000 on his collection.

    Jian Yang’s home has been taken over by his vast collection of Barbie dolls.

    The 38-year-old business director designed his house in Singapore around the huge number of Barbie dolls he owns.

    Jian has been buying the toys for more than 30 years – but stopped counting when he reached 9,000.

    He said: ‘I’ve loved Barbie since 1984, when I accidentally opened my sister’s Christmas present. Great Shape Barbie started it all.

    It’s surprising, as there is a lot of talk in the media lately about the fight to end the stigma surrounding mental illness.

    According to a new study into women’s attitudes on condom use, a significant portion of us aren’t using condoms when we have sex on our periods.

    That’s a risky move.

    Clue and The Kinsey Institute surveyed 95,000 people from around the world, and found that reported use of condoms declines 15% during menstruation.

    Of those who didn’t use condoms during periods, 30% said they weren’t worried about the risk of pregnancy because of their cycle, and 31% said they were ‘unconcerned’ about catching an STI.

    This is worrying. While 15% isn’t a massive portion of us, it’s enough to raise concerns over the risks we’re taking when… Read the full story

    Why is it that having a certain type of body imposes rules on what you’re allowed to wear?

    If you’ve got female nipples, you’ll need to wear a top. If you’re plus-size, suddenly a bikini is inappropriate.

    That’s the message plus-size blogger Anna O’Brien – also known as Glitter and Lazers – received loud and clear when she tried to take some photos in the lobby of a hotel in Las Vegas.

    This week Anna headed to Las Vegas to shoot a swimwear lookbook, which means she needed plenty of pictures of herself in swimwear.

    Sorry, pals, but you may want to put away that bottle.

    An extra glass of wine can shorten your life by 30 minutes, says a new paper in the Lancet medical journal.

    Researchers note that five 175ml glasses of wine a week is the upper safe limit. Even one glass over that limit raises the risk of stroke, fatal aneurysm, heart failure, and early death. Fun!

    Oh, and the risks are worse if you’re drinking wine and you’re over 40.

    The study looked at data from close to 600,000 drinkers included in 83 studies, and found that early deaths rose when people drank more than 100g of booze (five to six glasses… Read the full story
