It’s important that you enjoy yourself, eat what you fancy and let your hair down. By starting the day the right way yet again it puts you in a great mind-set for the rest of the day whilst your body will certainly thank you. Take full advantage of the fresh omelettes being tossed up for you and the chilled super green smoothies.

3.Keep protein intake fairly high
We all know the importance of eating protein regularly, stabilisation of sugar levels, energy and appetite are just three benefits that’s spring to mind.
