5 Easy tips to eating healthy in 2018

The festive season is over, and we’re sure you’re feeling the food hangover! So here are 5 easy food tips to eating healthy in 2018!

  1. Stay away from drastic weight loss plans

Weight loss plans tend to be a quick fix to show instant results but do not provide long-term sustainable outcomes. Drastic weight loss plans tent to leave people in very high calorie deficit because of the lack of food consumed. Although weight loss can be rapid, weight gain can be as quick once finished; these plans can also have dangerous side effects.

  1. Eat slow-realising carb foods

Slow releasing carbs are perfect for eating healthy quality food as they absorb slowly and keep your blood sugars steady, as well as reducing hunger pains and promoting better weight loss.

Slow releasing carbohydrates such as sweet potatoes, quinoa, rolled oats, pasta and whole grain rice are good examples to have with your meals to make them more nutritiously balanced as some are high in fibre, Beta-carotene, amino acids and vitamins A, C and B6.

  1. Eat those vegetables!

Vegetables are a great nutritious source of fibre without the crazy calories. Plenty of vegetables with your meals, or as a snack are easy alternatives to sugary and salt laden foods.

  1. Drink more water

As well as keeping you hydrated, and removing toxins from the body, drinking water promotes steady weight loss by filling you up and reducing the need to snack throughout the day.

  1. Prep your meals

Prep what you’re going to eat for the week; a simple check of the ingredients in your fridge and cupboard can set you up for the week. Make a plan of what protein, carbs and veg you want to eat throughout the week and cook that meal the night before you need it. Alternatively, you can use our meal prep service, where we prep your meals weeks in advance.

  1. Meal prepping, I wish I would have done this when I was young and living on my own. I do it now and I find my family eats so much healthier, we save a lot more money and it’s so much less of a hassle for me throughout the month.

  2. I heard a tip the other day that if you eat your veggies first, you will eat less and your body will start to associate the vegetables with “good food” and want more.

  3. Wonderful advice, I do practise most of these but I need to up my water! I don’t believe in extreme diets because I know if I fill up on my veg I wont get hungry and then start snacking 😀

  4. I definitely need to drink more water. I haven’t been feeling well lately and I think some of it is due to not only stress but not getting enough water.

  5. Your useful tips on eating healthy remind of my eating habits which comprise of most what you have suggested. And now I know I am on right track.

  6. I love that these tips are so easy to follow… I definitely need to try and add more vegetables to my diet and to try to meal plan more. Your list of slow-releasing carbohydrates is really useful, thanks!

  7. I totally agree with this, it’s so much more important to have a balanced diet and to drink enough water than to
    Crash diet! X

  8. Prepping meals is so true! And drinking water is not that difficult if you always have a bottle around! For me, it is also not to have naughty sweets in the food as I am bad at controlling myself!

  9. Meal prepping is my BIG failure partly because I grow a lot of my own veggie so I am never too sure what will be ready to eat in a given week. But I am pretty good at cooking something tasty from what-ever I bring in, using what I have in the cupboard/freezer and where I live in rural France there are few takeaway options so I have to cook!
