Add Fibre Fat
Like Kim and Kanye, Bey and Jay and Tom and Jerry – there’s a reason this power pair works. Fibre expands in your stomach and also takes time to digest, which means you feel fuller for longer, so focus food choices on fibre-packed whole grains, vegetables and whole fruits (not juiced). Healthy fats, like olive and nut oils – in moderation – boost flavour, add energy and help your body absorb nutrients. “In terms of carbohydrates, pulses, legumes and lentils are your best choice, but aim to include starchy carbs, like rice, potatoes and rye bread, in around six meals per week,” explains Miguel Toribio-Mateas, expert nutrition practitioner and clinical neuroscientist.
