Is milk really good for your bones? Are all salty snacks unhealthy? Do you need to drink two litres of water per day? These are just some scientific food “facts” that aren’t as concrete as you might think.

The Indigenous Hunza people in the hills of Pakistan don’t eat until lunchtime, existing on a mostly raw diet of fruit, nuts and seeds with a little yoghurt thrown in. There is one cooked meal per day — dhal with wholemeal chapattis.
Every single night.
This has been my diet for the last four weeks.
