Plus Regular Exercise

Key to Healthy Eating

Breakfast should consist of fruit, yoghurt and cereals and perhaps some protein (eggs, cottage cheese or almonds soaked overnight).
Lunch should be substantial. Start with a salad, then continue with a protein (fish or chicken), vegetables and carbohydrate (rice, yeast-free bread, potato, pasta, yam, corn).
Dinner Should be light unless it is eaten early, at 7-8pm. It should not contain heavy proteins such as beef or lamb, or spicy foods, as these take longer to digest. Dessert should be avoided at night as sugar stimulates the brain and keeps you awake. Vegetable soups e.g. Carrot ” Coriander, Tomato ” Basil and Leek ” Potato are ideal evening meals.
