The Human Body: One of the most intricate & smartest things on earth. It is both a Simple & yet astoundingly Complex machine. No matter how it's treated, it will do its utmost to take good care of itself. As with any machine, however, it needs the right fuel to run properly. Sooner or later therefore, bad food habits & lifestyle choices will have some impact. It's impossible to predict the kind of impact, as this will vary from person to person. Whilst it's not always possible to prevent health problems, you can give yourself the best chance of remaining healthy by taking good care of yourself & making smarter choices.
So what are the smarter choices?  Undoubtedly, it is to eat a Mediterranean style diet. Mfl takes this approach in the overall planning of our menus. Why? Because we believe that taking an overall approach is much more helpful in terms of shaping our habits & future choices than getting hung up on individual nutrients. We have just made sure you will eat less sugar, salt, red & processed meat, unhealthy fats & processed foods & more fish, fruit & vegetables, wholegrains, pulses, healthy fats & unprocessed foods. We hope we have also shown that it is possible to adopt this style of eating whilst still keeping some of our most loved meals & without making massive changes to our usual everyday meal planning.
Of course its difficult to think about potential future health consequences when you can't see any immediate consequences from the lifestyle choices you make now. Long-term incentives therefore aren't always enough motivation to make changes. If this is something you struggle with, focus on some of the many short-term benefits as you can see much more tangible results in the short-term.
