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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
