Way to go

Now you know a bit about the different food groups, kilocalories and kilojoules, portion sizes and GI values. But this doesn't guide you to making healthier food choices.

Weight management is difficult enough - especially as we get older - and putting yourself on a restricted regimen only leads to depression, dissatisfaction and disillusionment. So dump the doomed diet discipline. The healthy style of eating still comes down to having controlled portions of a wide variety of foods from all the different food groups - with emphasis on vegetables and fruit. Eliminating foods you normally enjoy is not the way to go - a little of what you fancy does you good, and stops you feeling deprived.

Have a great weekend.
