DRINK two to three litres of water per day and take regular nutritious snacks instead of a few heavy meals. Stick to red wine, not white, and only two glasses per day.
AVOID sweets and biscuits. Dried apricots and figs are a healthier alternative. Cut down, or cut out, caffeine. This means a ban on chocolate as well as coffee, tea and colas.
BIORHYTHMS Make the most of them. 'Morning people' thrive on carbohydrates at breakfast, and in the evening, while 'afternoon people' need protein in the morning and evening.
FEED your brain with oily fish, avocados and olive oil. Reinforce your immune system with onions and garlic. Boost vitality with extra fresh vegetables and fruit.
SLEEP Avoid highly spiced and any other food which you find difficult to digest, whenever possible. Have a late-night carbohydrate snack to help you sleep.
