What should I add or remove from my diet for clear glowing skin?

1. Add a probiotic supplement or probiotic containing foods into your daily routine. 70 per cent of the cells that make up our immune system are found in the GI tract so you’ll want to keep your gut healthy and balanced. A healthy GI track equals a healthy body inside and out.

2. Add lemon. Lemon has antimicrobial properties and contains Vitamin C, a powerful antioxidant that neutralises free radicals and boosts collagen production. Simply add lemon to your daily water intake or squeeze over salads for a refreshing burst of citrus!

3. Add carrots, kale and bell peppers to your salads! Your skin needs vitamins and minerals to stay firm and healthy. These vegetables are potent and delicious sources of vitamins C and A, both of which been shown to help minimise the signs of aging.

4. Remove added sugar and fried foods from your diet as much as you can. Having a high intake of added sugar and fried food has been shown to cause or exacerbate acne, eczema, psoriasis, and other skin conditions.

I need to lose weight and lower my cholesterol. I work long hours and tend to eat my main meal late in the evening. Does it matter when I eat?

We know that what we eat may affect our risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and obesity. Now, researchers say how often and when we eat may also make a difference. Recent research suggests eating most of our calories in the evening may be linked to obesity. There’s some evidence that eating breakfast is linked to a lower risk of obesity, supporting the theory that it’s better to eat earlier than later. But this is not conclusive. More research is needed about which meal should provide the most energy. We probably do need to tune back into our body clocks – eating when our body really needs food rather than when we have time. This doesn’t mean not eating after a certain time, but perhaps eating regular meals and more of our calories earlier in the day. However, it is the type of foods you choose and portion sizes that have the biggest impact on your health.
