Slimming super foods

Celery – High in fibre and many minerals, this crunchy vegetable is beast eaten raw, to slow the release of the nutrients from the rest of your meal. And it contains zero fat.

Quinoa – A seed rather than a grain, the combination of protein and complex carbohydrate in quinoa provides you with energy for several hours after eating.

Avocado – Long considered a no-no for traditional dieters, this fruit is higher in protein than most, and supplies ample essential fats, together with a high dose of vitamin E – which is great for reducing stretch marks and wrinkles caused by rapid weight-loss.

Oats – The total super food for energy, weight-loss and anti-ageing, oats are lower in gluten than wheat, which tends to bung up the digestive system. They provide slow-release energy, and reduce cholesterol.

Chia seeds – The newest kid on the block, nutrient-rich chia seeds add bulk, fibre, protein and essential fats to cereals, smoothies and salads. For a great energy boost and to stave off hunger for longer, soak overnight in water. A 28g serving gives you half your fibre RDA.

Five diet no-no’s

  • Don’t cook more than you need for each meal, unless you are planning to use a protein, such as chicken or salmon, in you salad lunch the next day.
  • Don’t buy bulk packs of foods to reduce costs – you never shrink your waistline this way!
  • Don’t go back for seconds – stick to the ‘one-plate’ rule.
  • Don’t drink alcohol on an empty stomach – it’s high in calories and will sabotage your slimming programme from the start.
  • Don’t embark on a limited food range – your body will quickly rebel, and you’ll find yourself craving inappropriate foods.
