Healthy Living Eating Tips

Posted by Healthy Living



  1. Hydrate: drink 2 litres of water daily non flavoured still and sparkling
  2. Make sure breakfast is part of your day. Protein based fills you for longer
  3. Increase your intake of fruit and vegetables – full of dietary fibre and antioxidants.
  4. Cut down on refined and processed foods like sugars, bread, biscuits, cakes, rice
  5. Reduce your alcohol intake. Alcohol is as calorific gram for gram as protein or carbohydrate.
  6. Reduce your caffeine intake as it retains fluid and interferes with iron and zinc levels
  7. Eat regularly – every 3-4 hours
  8. Make sure you have some protein with each meal. This will keep your blood sugars regulated and fill you for longer.
  9. Introduce more fish into your diet. Oily fish is a great source of Omega 3
  10. Use more nuts and seeds for snacks
  11. Eat plant based proteins more regularly – legumes etc..
  12. Consume more green vegetables, kale, spinach, broccoli etc..(unless you are on Warfarin)
  13. Use olive oil in preference to others which are highly refined.
  14. Avoid “Hydrogenated” foods as these are harmful “Trans-Fats”
  15. Remember low fat usually means high sugar. Be aware of labels.
