International health insurance customers who are concerned about the impact that their poor diet could have on their health should realise that a better lifestyle does not have to cost much.
According to Harry MacMillan, chief executive of Mind, Exercise, Nutrition… Do it! (MIND), healthy foods such as wholegrain bread and rice are not only more nutritious, they are also more filling.
This can cut down on snacking between meals, which can reduce costs at the supermarket checkout.
"Swapping dairy products, like yogurt, to low fat versions and unhealthy snacks to pieces of fruit is also great for your health," he noted.
Mr MacMillan's comments come after a spokesperson for Slimming World reminded individuals not to cut out certain food groups in order to lose weight.
Jenny Craven, a representative of the organisation, said swapping calorific foods for healthier alternatives is better than stopping consumption of chocolate, crisps and biscuits.
