Top tips for a healthy diet
A balanced diet is essential for overall health and wellbeing, not to mention a key element in keeping the body trim. However, many people are still unsure what foods they should be eating.
Ensuring you have a good diet is simple, as long as you eat the right things from each food group and use natural supplements to make up for any deficiencies that may occur as a result of intolerances or personal preferences.
Nevertheless, it is essential to keep portion sizes reasonable, as most foods have a negative effect if consumed excessively.
It is important to ensure you have a regular intake of wholemeal flour and bread, oats, high-fibre breakfast cereals, and whole grain rice and pasta. These foods are important for digestive health and are also ideal for boosting energy.
However, you must remember that high fibre foods can be fattening, so eat them in moderation.
Fruits, vegetables and nuts
The main stay of any plan for healthy living is lots of fruits, vegetables and nuts. They are essential for energy and the body's immune system and metabolism. Dried beans, lentils and baked potatoes are also part of this vital category of foods.
Fish is a great source of protein and Omega-3 fatty acids, especially oily fish. Omega-3 is a great boost for metabolisms, which must be in working order if you want to lose a few extra pounds here and there.
Meat has lots of benefits and red meat is particularly helpful for those with iron deficiencies. However, it isn't advisable to eat this too regularly. White meats are healthier on a daily basis.
Dairy foods can have a high fat content if consumed excessively, but they are part of a balanced diet. A key source of calcium, dairy foods, such as milk, yoghurt and cheese, will help to keep teeth and bones healthy. To limit the impact of dairy on your waistline, always opt for low-fat options when possible.

- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) Carrot Oil contains Beta Carotene and Vitamin A which, by eliminating toxic build-up and repairing sun-damaged skin, helps to improve skin complexion. Antiseptic properties also assist in reducing breakouts and the formation of acne. It is also great for hydrating the skin. So mixing it with Jojoba oil may help. I would also recommend mixing Jojoba oil and Tamanu oil as both have great moisturising properties and are great for acne prone skin. Hope this helps!

- Ashwagandha Dosage for AnxietyI found a supplement that is 500 mg, 120 Count. Do you recommend taking 1 capsule daily? or 2 capsules? I also take thyroid medication and an SSRI among other things.
- The amazing Ashwagandha benefits for womenHello Dia, Thank you for your comment. Research is confusing when it comes to testosterone levels with PCOS and using Ashwagandha. As it is an adaptogenic herb, it will 'adapt' to the environment of the body to support hormonal balance. A huge therapeutic benefit of Ashwagandha is its ability to balance cortisol levels, which could improve stress and symptoms of PCOS also. If you are currently using any medications or under medical supervision, please seek advice from your practitioner to ensure there are no interactions. I hope this helps :)
