1. Fruit makes an ideal snack that you should always have to hand in summer.
TRUE/FALSE. It all depends on what you eat at mealtimes: if you are already eating lots of raw vegetables and fruit with your meals, it is naturally sensible to avoid having more as a snack so as to go easy on your intestines and to limit your consumption of fruit-based sugars.
2. Drinking water helps you lose weight.
FALSE. Whether or not you are on a diet, it is, of course, important to drink enough (1.5 litres a day if possible) so that your kidneys work properly and you can get rid of waste through your urine. But that doesn't make you lose weight !
