Top Tips For A Healthy You!
- What are you eating? If you don’t know, start to keep a track of all you eat and drink.
- Reduce your fat intake by half, that means half the amount of butter on scones or bread, half the amount of salad cream or mayonnaise – or just say no to mayonnaise - and reduce the amount of oil, by half, when cooking and marinating food.
- Reduce any sugar treats to twice a week.
- Stock up on your protein rich food such as fish, meat, chicken, legumes, peanut, eggs or yogurt.
- Try to go have a vegetarian meal at least once a day – either lunch or dinner this will help reduce the amount of fat you intake and increase fibre. Try to have meals based around vegetables, beans and whole grains.
- Use skinned milk instead of full-fat milk or try semi-skinned milk.
- Fresh fruit is great for a sweet tooth - eat at least two servings of fresh fruit every day.
- Drink water instead of fruit juice. Don’t like the taste of water? Add lemon or lime juice.
- Your lunch and dinner should include at least two servings of vegetables – this will give you four serving per day!
- Have at least one or two servings of whole grains with every meal.
- Don’t snack in front of the television – studies have shown you will eat more. Turn off the TV and enjoy a smaller amount of food and thus less calories!
- Choose foods that you can eat ! Carbonated sugar drinks are loaded with empty calories and fruit juices do not provide the same amount of fibre and vitamins as the real fruit – so be careful.
- Don’t leave your meals to chance; plan what you are going to eat for your meals and snacks, this way you don’t make hasty choices. We tend to select higher calorie snacks and meals when we do not plan ahead.
