A doctor has revealed exactly what she eats in a day to promote healthy ageing, as well as the food rules she swears by for good health.
Dr Kate Gregorevic, from Melbourne, said she is ‘very conscious’ that what she eats has a big impact on how her body functions now and in the future – so she tries to flood her diet with as many plant-based foods and wholefoods as possible.
‘While I do enjoy a little meat or fish, vegetables and wholegrains like oats, brown rice, barley and freekeh make up the bulk of my diet,’ Dr Gregorevic told Sydney Morning Herald.

She also ensures she eats plenty of fibre – which is beneficial for our gut bacteria and helps to protect the lining of the gut and make you feel more full after eating.
Dr Gregorevic said that alongside eating mainly plants, another of her food rules is that she avoids ultra-processed foods like biscuits, cakes and many popular breakfast cereals.
While these foods are often accessible in the supermarkets, the physician explained that they are ‘designed to overcome our satiety signals’ – meaning you never feel full despite eating a lot.
