100 Hot Bods: ST e-book gives you the facts and figures behind hot bods

Discover the facts and figures behind The Straits Times 100 Hot Bods e-book, available for free download through The Straits Times Star (ST Star) app.

You don't have to be young to be hot: Mr Alan Ong was 60 years old when he was featured in The Sunday Times Hot Bods column in 2008.

He is one of the 100 people from the Hot Bods series whose stories have been compiled into a new e-book, 100 Hot Bods, out now in The Straits Times Star (ST Star) app.

Apart from the archived photos and interviews, the book also contains stories on fitness and eating tips, as well as a statistical breakdown of some of the information amassed through the 10 years of the series.

They include figures on the age, weight, height, diet and exercise regimen of more than 1,000 of our "Hot Bods". We found, for instance, that seven per cent of them were at least 40 years old when they were featured.

Along with 100 Hot Bods, the app is also home to an interactive monthly lifestyle magazine called The Life, which has articles on style, design, pursuits, travel and food.

The ST Star app is an extension of The Straits Times Appreciates Readers (Star) programme, an ongoing effort to reach out to readers and the community.
