You don't have to eat less, says ABC Nutrition founder Angela Berrill -- you just need to be careful.

Diet trends for 2016

February 25th 2016

Angela spoke with Paul about the diet trends set to take 2016 by storm. They included:

Blue Zones - themes we can look to from the 5 zones around the world where inhabitants live the longest.

Vegetarianism / Veganism - while the Blue Zones certainly emphasise the importance of eating a predominately plant-based diet for optimal health, you don't necessarily need to exort to becoming a vegetarian or vegan. Simply, include more plant foods in your diet.

Elimination diets - 'don't eat this to improve that' type of diets are all the rage but unless you have a medically diagnosed reason to avoid a certain food, then there is no reason to eliminate x, y or z..... despite all the hype!
