Our expert says:
You can add a low-glycaemic index (GI) carbohydrate to each meal (click on 'Diet' and 'Weight loss' and 'The Glycaemic Index' and read the articles on the GI) to add more dietary fibre to the diet. Also don't have more than 4 eggs per week - eat fat-free cottage cheese instead and have a variety of vegetables, not just the 'negative energy' vegs like lettuce, cucumber and tomatoes, to ensure that you obtain enough protective nutrients (vitamins, minerals and antioxidants). All adults should also have at least 2 or more cups of fat-free milk or yoghurt a day to provide the 1200 mg of calcium required to prevent osteoporosis.
