Top tips to a healthier lifestyle

Consume a good quality protein source with each meal or snack to help sustain fullness for longer and enjoy some omega 3 fats such as oily fish, flaxseeds and walnuts to help increase satiety, reduce inflammation and burn stored body fat.

 

Swap processed foods high in sugar or refined carbs for real foods such as fibrous colourful veg, providing you with more energising nutrients and less of a sugar dip mid-afternoon – keep a food diary to help stay on track.

 

Stick to a regular routine so your body can regulate hunger hormones and mood fluctuations. Keep focused and calm when eating to improve digestion and to notice when you’re full!

 

Along with a healthy diet, moving more is the key to maintaining a healthy weight. Exercising with a friend is a great strategy, it's more fun and you're less likely to make an excuse not to when someone else is relying on you.

Let your friends and family know so they can support you in reaching your end goal. 

 

Focus on your goal – remember healthy weight loss should be a gentle enjoyable jog in the park, not a race.
