Evening Standard

We’re not going to tell you to join a gym, stop drinking and cut back on carbs. You know all that already. But there are changes you can make to your life in 2019 that will have you feeling better, working smarter and getting fitter. Take the advice of these 14 wellness experts, mental health professionals and fitness gurus and this year could be your best yet…

Start the year as you mean to go on with these three eating and drinking (and fasting) tips.

1. Eat happy foods. To boost your mood in January, go for: fatty fish, such as salmon and mackerel, for the Omega 3s; vegetables high in inulin, such as artichokes; flavonoids, including berries and greens; and polyphenols, which means a little red wine and dark chocolate. 2. Ditch charcoal drinks. They are a fad. They don’t help with detoxification and can even stop prescription drugs from working. 3. Try intermittent fasting. It can be very beneficial for people suffering from inflammatory bowel disease and can help develop gut microbes. Rather than doing it through the day, it is easier to fast overnight (from 6pm) and through the morning (until 11am). Remember, you can drink water and herbal teas in that time.
