Carol's fruity breakfast bowl consisted of fresh chopped fruit, grapes, a large dollop of Welsh yoghurt topped with crushed walnuts and a generous drizzle of honey for sweetness. Natural yoghurt can be high in protein, calcium, vitamins and probiotics, which can reduce bloating and promote healthier digestion.

Butter in coffee contains a large amount of fat, which slows digestion if you're pushing through the final hours of a fast. Like all things, intermittent fasting may not be for you. It's important to note that maintaining a healthy, balanced diet full of nutritious greens, fruit and fibre is always the healthiest option.
