Vegetables, dairy products …

When we’re trying to lose weight, we want it to happen quickly. Will having a fat-free diet help? What about reducing carbohydrates?

You need to detox to clear toxins from your body – we hear it every January after the excesses of the festive season. It sounds quite attractive to ‘cleanse’ the body after a period of over-indulging. Nutritionist Elizabeth Stewart explains: “Our bodies constantly filter out, break down and excrete toxins and waste products. These can include …

Diet is never far from the headlines. In particular, our increasing obesity problem, and what should be done to solve it. One recent attempt at tackling the subject was on TV3’s Third Degree programme, where fat was in the spotlight. The provocative premise: “Does eating fat actually make you thin?” The programme tried to set …

We’ve heard that you shouldn’t eat protein and carbs together and fruit must be eaten by itself, or the body becomes too acidic. Do they really fight with each other? The concept of ‘food combining’ – eating certain foods in certain combinations and not at the same time – has been around for ages. In …

This diet plan became quite popular – but is it really true? According to this theory, proposed by Dr Peter J. D’Adamo in his book Eat Right 4 Your Type, people with different blood types have different nutritional needs. But it’s pure science fiction. There is no credible science behind this theory and around the world …
