Follow these eight simple tips to take your eating habits from fat to fit…
CHOP AND CHANGE: Eating the same foods every day limits the nutrients your body gets – so eat a variety of foods.
EAT WITHIN TWO HOURS OF EXERCISE: Your metabolism is higher after exercise which encourages your food to be used for energy instead of being stored as fat.
ADD PROTEIN TO YOUR MEALS: Adding protein to a meal or snack will give you the feeling of fullness after eating which means you won’t get as hungry so soon after eating.
EAT EARLY: Have your dinner at least a few hours before you go to bed so your body can digest the food and burn kilojoules at max speed.
GO ORGANIC: Cut out chemicals as they can place added strain on your body.
SNACK ATTACK: Don’t feel guilty about snacking! Healthy snacks keep blood sugar on an even keel and prevent cravings.
BECOME A WATER BABY: Drink at least 6-8 glasses a day to flush away toxins and keep your body hydrated.
TREAT YOURSELF EVERY NOW AND AGAIN: If you don’t deprive yourself, you’re less likely to go overboard and completely pig out. Besides, life is too short to not enjoy a little of the good stuff – everything in moderation.
