Camilla on fad diets and the importance of a healthy lifestyle.

Love Island’s Camilla Thurlow sets out to dispel harmful dieting myths in the run up to summer.

With the new series of Love Island in full swing, Camilla Thurlow – who is known for her healthy and active approach to wellbeing – has teamed up with the Potatoes: More Than A Bit On The Side campaign to speak out against fad diets and cutting out whole food groups. She aims to raise awareness of the importance of leading a healthy lifestyle and eating a mix of foods in moderation – and especially enjoying potato dishes!

On her involvement in the campaign, Camilla commented “It is so important that we work to dispel damaging myths around eating well and stop harmful advice being passed down to younger generations. Carbs, particularly potatoes, are an important source of energy and provide many nutrients such as potassium and fibre, but unfortunately negative myths exist as only two in five of those surveyed believe the fact that potatoes are fat free. I find that eating potatoes – which are fat free and gluten free – is a fantastic way of incorporating carbs into a healthy diet and would encourage anyone looking to do the same to visit the Love Potatoes website for some delicious, healthy recipe ideas.”

As an ambassador for the campaign, Camilla will appear in national media alongside her favourite potato recipes and advice on maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
