Expatriate Insurance News: Balanced diet 'must consider food groups'

Expatriate healthcare insurance customers looking to follow a balanced diet must make sure they consume produce from all the main food groups.

This is according to nutrition consultant for Greatvine.com Charlotte Stirling-Reed, who noted people are often confused by what constitutes a balanced diet.

She highlighted "fruit and vegetables, wholegrain carbohydrates, dairy foods and non-dairy sources of protein" as important, noting these will ensure people receive the nutrients that are required on a daily basis.

Ms Stirling-Reed also advised minimising consumption of foods that are high in fat and sugar, as well as cutting down on "empty-calorie" items.

However, she also stated there are no specific foodstuffs that can help maintain wellbeing, concluding that the only way to keep weight at an ideal level is to consume a variety of healthy products.

Her advice may be useful to many people, as Helean Oades, nutritionist at Zeal Health, recently noted some individuals are misinformed about which foods are good for them.
