The Curves 30 days weight management plan can help you lose weight, body fat and inches and keep it off for good. All fruit and vegetables are important.

Spices are a wonderful way to add unique flavour to your dishes without all the sodium of other flavour-enhancers. Many also have disease-fighting qualities. Parsley, for example, is a great source of cancer-fighting antioxidants. Ginger aids digestion and soothes upset stomachs.

Cinnamon reins in blood sugar and helps lower cholesterol and triglycerides. Turmeric has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties; is linked to the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and colon cancer. Sage has decongestant and antibacterial properties. Fennel helps dissipate gas from the intestinal tract and rosemary fights cancer and tumour growth.

When it comes to fighting colds and flues, the probiotics found in yoghurt are healthy bacteria that keep your gut and intestinal tract free of disease-causing germs.

Oats and barley contain beta-glucan, a type of fibre with potent antimicrobial and antioxidant properties.

Garlic helps fight infection and bacteria. Fish helps white blood cells develop proteins that help clear out flu viruses. Chicken soup blocks the migration of inflammatory white cells and helps keep mucus thin like cough syrups.

Tea, black and green, contain an amino acid that helps increase immunity (two cups a day ). Beef helps your body develop white blood cells. Sweet potatoes are a great source of vitamin A for healthy skin and mushrooms pack the biggest immunity punch.
