Could fruit baskets help with new year diets?
Published on 06/01/2012

Individuals keen to increase their health this new year may find investing in fruit baskets and following one expert's advice could help them to improve their diet.

Food writer and founder of Foods for Life Tony Bishop-Weston explained how everyone should aim to reduce their intake of processed and refined products.

"Eat more foods that are naturally rich in soluble fibre, vitamins, minerals, anti-oxidants and essential fats," he advised.

Mr Bishop-Weston claimed eating a diet rich in nutrients is particularly important for the over-50s, as the body finds it harder to absorb vitamins and minerals the older individuals get.

According to the specialist, digestive systems get weaker and many people have a smaller appetite, which means meals should be "nutrient dense" rather than calorie focused.

Dr Cory Holly, nutritionist and founder of the Cory Holly Institute, recently encouraged people to instil a lifestyle change instead of attempting to stick to a new year diet.
