5 a day Food Myths

Wednesday February 9, 2011 at 9:36pm

   Five pieces of fruit and vegetables and 8 glasses of water a day. Good advice or cynical marketing ploys from food and beverage companies? At beflattered.com we hold the view that drinking 8 glasses of water 1 size fits all approach is not for everyone. So, the same must apply to 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables.

Maybe YOU work best with 1 piece or 10!!

A recent book by obesity researcher and nutritionist Zoe Harcombe disproves the commonly held belief that if we eat 5 pieces of fruit and vegetables every day the antioxidants will take care of the oxidants.

So how do you deal with the oxidants?

Make sure that you incorporate a good Multi Vitamin & Mineral Supplement into your daily routine and of course carry on eating fruit and vegetables for their pure enjoyment.
