Healthy Eating Advice

First Steps Towards a Healthy Diet

 

Eating the right foods in the correct proportions is essential for good health. Following your first visit to the Centre, you may wish to improve your diet. Some suggestions are set out below. If your appetite and digestion are affected, aim to incorporate 3 of the below into your daily eating routine and add more as you are able.

 

Drink at least 2 litres of good quality water spread throughout the day using a jug filter. (This should be one of your priority)


Increase the amount of fruit and especially vegetables in your diet (up to ten portions per day) including greens such as cabbage, broccoli, spinach and watercress. Steam your vegetables where possible.

Include beans, peas and lentils in your diet .

 

Add organic extra virgin olive oil to raw and cooked foods. If olive oil is used in cooking heat to a minimum and choose a 'mild and light' variety. Alternatively, cook with organic virgin coconut oil.

 

Increase the amount of whole grains in your diet and look for alternatives to wheat.

 

AVOID
Processed food e.g. ready meals, branded breakfast cereals, vegetable oils in plastic bottles

 

Red meats, especially beef and pork.

 

Dairy produce, especially if affected by a hormone dependant cancer

 

Table salt and salty foods such as ham

 

Sugar and sugary foods and synthetic sugar substitutes

 

Alcohol, although an occasional small glass of red wine with a meal has protective properties.

 

Reduce Tea and Coffee, which contains caffeine. Change to green tea or try other herbal and fruit teas.
