    • Blue/Purple – Boost urinary tract health and memory function and promote healthy aging.Mushrooms, bananas, onions and other WHITE fruits and vegs are good for the heart and help to control cholesterol levels.

 

  • Don’t be a creature of habit and have the same meals – you will get bored and could fall off track
  • Experiment – keep it interesting and you are less likely to get bored and more likely to stay on track.
  • Have a glass of water before your meal
  • Use a smaller plate
    If really hungry have a bowl of low calorie soup to take the edge off, this will stop you overindulging on your main meal.
  • Fill half your plate with vegetables, 1/4 with protein and 1/4 with carbohydrates
