Did you know that the food you eat can have a massive impact on your health, energy and levels and vitality and almost all areas of your life? Here are the top healthy eating tips for you to know:
-Hydrate, drink more water. 1L for every 24kg of body weight
-Eat breakfast! Make time for the most important meal of the day! Gluten free cereal, protein smoothie or eggs
-Eat Vegetables! Important to eat as many different colours as possible and at least include them with lunch and dinner
-Try and limit foods that require packaging, fresh are ALWAYS best.
-Try and eat protein with most meals, it will keep you full for longer so you won’t eat as much. Protein = eggs, meat, chicken, fish, cheese, nuts & seeds
-Choose low GI carbohydrates, GI = Glycemic Index. They will keep you full for longer and cause less blood sugar & energy fluctuations
-Keep portion sizes down by choosing smaller plates and using your hand to measure, palm is equivalent to protein, 2 handfuls = vegetables, 1 small handful carbohydrates if necessary
-Eat as much variety as possible to ensure you receive nutrients from many different sources
-Eat a 2 pieces of fruit per day including berries for their high antioxidant content.
-Increase good fat in your diet by sprinkling seeds on salads or adding to smoothies, using flaxseed oil as salad dressing, having a small handful of nuts each day and eating more oily fish such as fresh tuna.
