Five Foods to Fix Things

You are what you eat...that's what they say right? Does that mean we're burgers and ice cream...umm maybe!

But we've decided to change our ways - for maybe one or two days of the week - and eat food to fix things. What things, you ask? Oh, loads of stuff. One of the most powerful tools to solve common issues comes not from the pharmacy, but from your food.

We've looked into the science of food and identified the best meals to solve any daily woes you may have. Always tired? Get ready to feel perkier. Grey hair? You can ditch the hair dye - you might not need it anymore. Here's our round up...

If you don't have enough iron, your body has to work much harder, which can leave you feeling incredibly tired. Let whole grains and steak become your best friends.
