- Have some reduced-fat dairy or soya drinks fortified in calcium
- Eat more beans, pulses, fish and eggs
- Eat small amounts of unsaturated oil
- Drink six to eight glasses of water each day

You should cut out sports drinks, sugar sweetened drinks and other foods that have a lot of added sugar in them, advises Bupa.
“Be aware that low-fat options might have high amounts of added sugar in them,” adds Bupa.
