Sports drinks are the worst offenders loading up a mass of sodium and selling it as beneficial electrolytes and hydration. This is a fancy way of saying, salt and rancid water retention. Read the label at all times and check for sodium content.

Sauces – Lemon/Lime juice, Fresh chilli cut, and Pepper. Mirin. Blend fresh coriander spices and celery and capsicum.

Chips – Baked sweet potato is better than potato chips. Chips without salt are good but they are still carbohydrate heavy and better to have for dinner. Steamed vegetables are a good substitute.

Drinks – Instead of having bottled water, have tap water, instead of having coke, have orange juice best freshly squeezed, Instead of soda water have filtered water.
