I've never been a healthy person, at best I'd have an apple but my diet used to consist of lots of snacking on crisps (potato chips for non-UK members), biscuits, chocolate, several bowls of cereal daily, beans on toast, ready meals, noodles and frozen products like fish fingers, nuggets, fish pie with baked beans in sauce. I feel this is a big change even though one or two things might make you think "how is that healthy?" - Hopefully not significantly though.

 

I've cut out:

- Sugar (cut out adding it to food)

- Salt (same as sugar)

- Frozen processed food i.e nuggets, fish fingers

- Dairy (apart from yoghurt unless I find a non-dairy probiotic one)

- Processed food/ready-made meals

 Noodles

- Bacon

 

Replaced:

- Eating white bread daily for occasionally eating wholemeal

- Regular butter for soya spread

- Dairy milk for soya milk

 

Added:

- Frozen cod fillets (I'm on a budget and it's the cheapest I could find - ideally I'd have wild salmon)

- More fruit and veg

- More eggs

- Coconut oil

- Fruit smoothies

 

My shopping list consisted of:

 

Asparagus

Baby washed spinach

Broccoli

Cauliflower

Carrot

Lettuce

Celery

Cucumber

Peas

Mushrooms

Sweet potatoes

Small potatoes

Tray of mixed veg (baby carrots, babycorn, green peas and peas in a pod)

 

Blueberries

Apples

Physalis

Passion fruit

Organic kiwi

Melon

Plums

Strawberries

Pears

 

Almonds

Pumpkin seeds

Soya milk

Special K (http://www.kelloggs..../special-k.html)

Soya spread

Cod fillets

Richmond ham (ingredients: http://bit.ly/10TJsNU)

Coleslaw (I know)

looks really good.  You're doing great.  try and eat the fruits and veggies raw as often as possible rather than cooking them to maximize nutrients.  Make sure and stick with it.  If you're doing it for your skin, I'll tell you that the skin is the last place in the human body to get nutrients after all of your other organs and tissues and stuff.  So, it will take months or even more than a year to see your diet really effect your skin.  HAVE FAITH

I've only cut out adding it, as it's in most foods anyway

if u can maintain the potassium-sodium balance then adding salt wont harm at all.

in fact,make sure  u dnt go low on sodium level.
