I’m confused – do I try Paleo, Keto, a detox or a juice cleanse? Help!

Don’t get caught up in fads. Clear confusion by taking a step back and looking at a wellness approach that suits your body type, goals and lifestyle. A nutritionist or dietician can help you figure this out. It’s important that changes you make are realistic and sustainable rather than short-term fixes. The key to a healthy lifestyle lies in individuality – what’s healthy for a celebrity or friend isn’t necessarily right for you. Make a note of how your body reacts after foods that you eat.

I always ace healthy eating for a day or two then fall off the wagon. Why?

People need support and accountability in reaching goals. Whether it’s from a nutrition expert, a support group or a friend, locking in regular update sessions will provide vital support and encouragement while keeping you on track. Doing it alone? Have a clear vision of yourself looking fit and healthy. Imagine yourself feeling the way you’d feel and appreciating your healthy body. Do this every time you falter and your will power will become stronger.

What are some high-fibre foods (and how much fibre is in them)?

Plant-based foods are the best sources of fibre – especially fruits and vegetables. Unfortunately, most people are falling short of their daily produce goals, too. According to a report, only one out of 10 adults meet their recommended fruit and vegetable intake. One great source for fibre is black beans – half a cup of black beans has seven or eight g of fibre. Plus, they can easily be added to soups, salads, and chilli, or even made into burger patties. Other high-fibre veggies include artichokes, avocados, winter squash, and lima beans. Fruits are also good sources of fibre. You can get four g of fibre by eating a medium apple with the skin or a half of cup of raspberries. A medium-size banana has three g of fibre. If you eat the recommended daily servings of both fruits and vegetables, it will be much easier to consume the recommended level of fibre. We recommend eating four servings of fruit and five servings of vegetables a day.
