HOW IT WORKS
You don’t have to visit 1
the health shop for expensive superfoods to feel great and lose weight this autumn. According to top Australian nutritionist Susie Burrell, the foods you buy regularly for your fridge and store cupboard – including oats, honey, tinned tuna and baked beans – provide nutrients such as omega-3 oils and fibre, which improve digestion, speeding up your metabolism so you burn calories more efficiently.

and veg, such as calciumrich broccoli and berries, also have slimming benefits. Raspberries and blueberries can both help lower blood fat levels and cholesterol, and trials show that when eaten regularly, they can help reduce belly fat. Strawberries help reduce sugar cravings, too. Buy them in season in farm shops when they’re cheaper, then store in an air-tight container and freeze for up to three months.
