Senior finance headhunter shares personal New Year's power diet

Eat this

It's nearly February. If you have spent the entirety of January sipping green tea and abstaining from alcohol, you can recrudesce starting from tomorrow.

One headhunter in London, however, spends 12 months of the year treating his body like a purgatorial sanctum. "People in finance eat so badly," he tells us, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear that fellow finance recruiters will disparage his healthiness. "They all eat crisps and chocolate. I'd rather snack on healthy foods like avocados and nuts. If I'm having a dessert, I'd rather eat blueberries with walnuts and Greek yoghurt."

The headhunter has concocted his own diet based around so-called 'super-foods'. This, he has shared with us below. If followed rigorously, he claims it dramatically improves your energy levels and is "cheaper than eating out". You can even drink, in moderation. "I have a glass or two of red wine in the evenings and some Armagnac brandy after a meal.

"Armagnac comes from a region of France where people live seven years longer than the rest," he adds.
