FOODS HIGH IN FAT AND SUGAR

You can enjoy food from this group as an occasional treat in balanced diet, but remember that sugary foods and drinks will add calories - and sugary drinks will raise blood glucose - so opt for diet/light or low-calories alternatives. Or choose water - it's calorie free!

Fat is high in calories, so try to reduce the amount of oil or butter you use in cooking. Remember to use unsaturated oils, such as rapeseed or olive oil as these types are better for your heart.
