New year, new you? The best ways to make a success of your diet

Published by the Eagle Radio News Team at 6:00am 3rd January 2017.

The festivities, sadly, have now come to an end.

The mulled wine and the mince pies have been consumed and you may well be feeling like you over-indulged.

If so - don't panic.

A YouGov poll found out that over a third of peoples' New Years resolution was to lose weight.

Nowadays there are so many diets floating around it can be tough to pick the one that will suit your lifestyle best.

The main message from professional nutritionist ijn Godalming, Pippa Mitchell, is to not try and do too much, too quickly:  "The important thing is to be realistic. Don't put in some incredibly strict diet plan if it's totally unrealistic and a week or so in it'll all fall apart.

"Take one or two that you know you could do easily.

"Keep your fridge stocked with suitable foods. Being prepared is probably the best advice I can give people."

According to Pippa, these are the best foods to try and eat plenty of if you're planning to lose some of the Christmas weight:

  • At least five portions of vegetables a day, with a couple of whole fruits on top of that
  • Salads, the more colours the better
  • Oily fish
  • Grass fed meat 
  • Organic dairy products
  • Nuts and seeds
  • Marine algae
  • Turmeric, ginger and cinnamon 
  • Bone broths
