Calories are a measure of the amount of energy in food and drink. Your weight depends on the balance between how much energy you consume and how much energy you use up. If you eat or drink more than you use you can gain weight. If you don’t eat enough you can lose it.
Your body wouldn’t function without fat. Fat is an essential part of a healthy balanced diet. It provides fat soluble vitamins and essential fatty acids. But as fat is a rich source of energy (calories), it can easily contribute to weight gain.
On average as a nation it seems we’re consuming too much saturated fat. Eating too much can increase your cholesterol, which is a risk factor for heart disease. Replacing saturated fats with unsaturated fats can help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and reduce the risk of heart disease.
Starchy foods like bread, breakfast cereals or potatoes are a good source of carbohydrate and should make up just over a third of the food you eat. When eaten, carbohydrates are broken down into glucose, which is used to fuel cells in your body like brain and muscle cells. Some people think starchy carbohydrates are fattening, but gram for gram it contains less than half the calories of fat. Choose whole grain or high fibre varieties where you can as they often contain more nutrients.
On average in the UK we eat too much sugar. Foods and drinks high in sugars are not needed in the diet. So if you have them, make sure they're infrequent and in small amounts, or you risk tooth decay or obesity.
Fibre is classed as a carbohydrate and you should aim to eat 30g fibre each day. Eating plenty of fibre is good for your digestive health and is associated with a lower risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes and some cancers.
All cells and tissues contain protein, so it’s essential for growth, repair and good health. Protein from animal sources such as meat, fish, eggs and dairy products contain all the essential amino acids (the building blocks of protein) needed by the body. If you're vegetarian or vegan, you can get the protein you need through eating a variety of different plant sources such as pulses, nuts and cereals.

- In a large bowl, mix together the meat and curry paste.
- Thread the steak, chillies and tomatoes alternately onto 4 skewers and grill under a high heat for 5 - 8 minutes, turning from time to time until well browned but still a little pink in the centre.
- Meanwhile, coarsely grate the cucumber and mix with the yogurt.
- Cut the lemon into six wedges, save four for serving and squeeze the juice from the remaining two wedges into the yogurt and add salt and pepper to taste.
- Remove the skewers from the grill and briefly warm the bread under the grill.
- Place a skewer on each chapatti, drizzle over the raita, add a wedge of lemon and serve open-style.
- Alternatively, place a skewer on each chapatti, roll up, slide out the skewer and cut each roll in half. Arrange two halves on a plate with the cucumber raita for dipping and a wedge of lemon.
- Best served warm.
- Cubed chicken would also work very well in a wrap like this and try adding a spoonful of mango chutney along with, or instead of, the raita.
- Chapattis are usually made with wholemeal flour but wholemeal flour tortillas, though often slightly larger, make a very good alternative.
- Pickled chillies are available from supermarkets in jars and are mild enough to eat whole.
