Women are far better than their male counterpart at seeking help when they think there’s something wrong. But although there’s greater awareness of their health, does this mean Ireland’s female population is meeting their nutritional needs?

Nutritional Therapist, Olive Curran, from PPC, which distributes Zerochol and Eskimo in Ireland, said: “Irish women are definitely making more of an effort to keep healthy. Exercise is making a big comeback, with running and triathlon clubs popping up across the country while healthy eating is no longer a fad diet.”

But Andrew Thomas, Managing Director and Founder of BetterYou, added: “The extent to which we are making wholesale changes to our diets and lifestyles is a different matter – change in mentality is one thing but it often takes time for this to translate into demonstrable results.”

Simple tips include eating regularly to keep blood sugar levels stable, eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day, with leafy green vegetables such as cabbage, kale, spinach, watercress and rocket being particularly good, and begin the day with breakfast. “Start your day with a cup of hot water and lemon to kick start your metabolism,” Olive suggested.
