Sunday’s finally over and as many of you have probably indulged in the last meal of the week, I remembered a pretty neat “trick” I heard about dieting…

Although we’ve been told time and time again that ‘5-a-day’ is the healthiest way to eat, I’d guess that as many as 95% of people don’t actually achieve that.

Even people with an average build, such as myself, find it hard to eat the recommended portions of fruit every day simply because we don’t like most of it. Because we live in a World with McDonalds and KFC around every corner, it’s so easy to fill your diet with the fat-filled feasts that are there to expand your wasitline.
