If you enjoy eating, but want to get in shape and improve your overall vitality, then, as most people know, you need to start a thoughtfully prepared well-balanced meal plan. In a perfect world, this needs to contain 5 standard portions of grains, fruit and vegetables daily and embrace the right proportion of food types.

Its all the rage, but it is really safe for you?
Many studies over recent years have proved that eating excess animal fats causes greater risk of cancer, coronary disease and other serious illnesses.
Although there is strong evidence that suggests that low carb diets may help with your weight loss program, some of this strong evidence has proved to be controversial among nutritionists, and their safety record has been challenged
Flavonoid rich foods
(inlcudes citrus fruits, asparagus, garden pea & basil)

The compounds known as flavonoids discovered in these natural foods are thought by nutritionalists to have properties in preventing cancer.
Medical experts investigating the effects of flavonoids think that they may well have most other health giving capabilities, amongst them, anti-dermatitis and antioxidant properties.
Many also have a low calorie count, so should be included in every diet.
