Make your calories count. Limit saturated fat and trans fats, and cut back on food high in added sugar and salt. Whole grains, fruit and vegetables contain vitamins, minerals and many natural ‘phytochemicals’ that function as ‘antioxidants’ to neutralise the free radicals, protecting body cells from damage. Eating plenty of them has a protective effect against heart disease, cancer. Eating healthy can prevent many lifestyle-related diseases (Health Promotion Board Singapore).
