Get the most from food

Beyonce Knowles loves her food but always makes sure she has a balanced diet. Some food experts believe, carbs and proteins produce acid, which must be balanced or neutralised with fruit and vegetables.
Eat: Neutralise acid by eating leafy green vegetables, including spinach, parsley and cabbage. Avoid tea, coffee, soft drinks, sugar, flavourings, artificial sweetener and preserved meat, which are all said to be very acidic.

My top tip: Eat a rainbow of food —raw is best, or steamed is better than boiled as it retains the vitamins and minerals.
