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.
