INCLUDE: A variety of good healthy carbohydrates, healthy fats and lean protein, whole grains, beans & lentils, fruit, oily fish, nuts and seeds all abundant in vital nutrients including vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

REDUCE : Foods and drinks high in additives, preservatives and chemicals such as artificial sweeteners, saturated fats, salt, sugar and added sugar and alcohol to avoid nutrient deficiencies which may lead to ill health and piling on the pounds.
