To Keep Fat Intake Down:
-Avoid fried foods

Fibre helps keep the digestive tract healthy by providing bulk and decreasing the transit time in the gut.
Getting enough fibre is also important for bowel regularity and normal colonic function.
The recommended intake of fibre for adults is 24g a day but many of us are not getting as much fibre as we need.
Try incorporating some of these good sources of fibre into your daily diet:
-Beans, pulses, legumes, whole-grain rice and pasta, whole-wheat bread, nuts, seeds and brans, vegetables and fruits
VITAMINS AND MINERALS
It is important to include varied and balanced meals as part of your daily diet. If you find it hard to get the balance right, a daily multivitamin such as Formula 2 Multivitamin Complex can help you reach your RDA.
Vitamins and minerals support overall good health, vitality and healthy weight management. They are essential for the body’s normal growth and development.
Even minor deficiencies may cause damage. Poor diets, hectic lifestyles and exposure to pollutants mean you may need to supplement your diet with vitamins and minerals to reach your Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA).
Vitamins help us get energy from food and enable growth and repair of skin, bone and muscle.
There are 17 minerals such as calcium, iron and magnesium that we must consume from our diet because the body cannot make them.
