Here are some great diet and healthy food and eating tips that you can start with:

  • Prepare your own meals. This helps you in knowing what goes inside your body. Whether it is healthy or not.
  • When eating be careful of your portions. If you eat two portions reduce it to one and a half. This will give your body time to adjust and in no time you will have a grip on your hands from taking another portion of food.
  • Try to gradually Cut down sugar, cakes, chocolates and snacks or make it to the minimum. Replace these snacks with healthier ones such as vegetables, peanut butter and fruit.
  • Reduce your intake of sugar. Reducing your intake of sugar a little at a time will give your taste buds time to adjust. Replace your sugary drinks with water or lemon juice.
  • Increase your intake of vegetables. Eating vegetables provides such nutrients and fibers which will maintain both your body and health. It is recommended to eat four cups of vegetables daily.
  • Eating a rich fruit diet helps your body to protect itself from diseases such as cancer. 2 cups of fruit is recommended to eat daily.
  • Get enough calcium in your diet because calcium helps to build your teeth, bones and regulate the rhythm of your heart. Dairy products such as cheese, milk and yogurt are rich in calcium.

5 Tips to Make You Lose Weight Fast

Losing weight is way more than just doing a lot of Exercises and calorie counting. Although these things help, in reality it’s more complicated. If you’re feeling stuck in a weight-loss battle there are plenty of expert tips and industry secrets to help you on your way.

Whether you want to make your workouts work harder for you or find smarter ways of eating healthy, here under are 5 ways to cut down fat and lose weight faster and they should help you to get towards your goal.

1. Healthy hydration

Sounds obvious, we know ! but eating healthily means drinking healthily too. There’s no point eating the right foods if you don’t drink the right liquids.

From simply drinking fizzy drinks or fruit juices with extra sugars it’s estimated that people are drinking an extra 200 calories per day then they think they are. So keep the cans of fizz to a minimum.

2 Keep your diet varied

A lot of diets slip up in not providing enough variety. If you do something day in day out, you get bored of it and it won’t be as easy to stick to.

Diet Chef’s Nutritionist and Weight Management Specialist, Izzy Cameron says: “The problem many of us have with dieting is that it can become repetitive and boring, meaning after a few weeks of feeling we are depriving ourselves we revert back to old habits and may binge on the wrong foods.”

So if you’re trying to slim down make sure you’re still eating a balanced, varied diet. In the long run you will probably lose much more weight.

3. Keep moving

An active lifestyle is essential for heart health, arthritis and staving off diabetes as well as lots of other health issues. But trying to fit in the 10,000 steps recommended per day to keep blood sugar levels from spiking isn’t easy.

If you have a job where you’re mainly sat around (which a large number of us do) then it can be extremely difficult. But doing small things like walking for 5mins at least every 2 hours can help keep your metabolism ticking over.

? Izzy says: “Exercise can definitely help with and accelerate weight loss. However exercise does not mean signing up to expensive gym memberships or having to hire a personal trainer, so don’t panic. Just keeping active for at least 30 minutes a day can make a difference. Perhaps walk to work instead of getting the bus…get off the bus a stop earlier, take a stroll on your lunch break or go out for a bike ride or do some gardening at the weekend. All these little steps will help towards achieving your weight loss goals.”

4. Starving yourself won’t work

Losing weight 101. Skipping meals is nothing but bad news.

Nutritionist, Emma Wight-Boycott says: “Skipping meals is disastrous for weight loss! It has a three-pronged impact – firstly it causes blood sugar imbalance which makes us crave sugar or carbohydrates within 2 hours of our regular meal time. Secondly it makes our bodies burn muscle, not fat, for energy. Finally the body has its own ‘food clock’ (like a body clock for time) that regulates our metabolism and this becomes sleepy or sluggish when it is out of routine (think shift workers or jet lag).”

5. Eat regularly

As well as not skipping meals, you need to make sure you’re providing your body with the right amount of energy.

Emma says: “While its good to shake our body up with different intensities of exercise its best to keep our mealtimes regular. If you find skipping meals a tempting habit try having a combined protein and fat snack or small meal instead. Do this every 2-3hrs. Eat a boiled egg, a small handful of nuts or seeds, a protein drink or 100gm of meat or cheese. Add in certain vegetables and fruit and reduce carbohydrates especially refined ones; they are the weight loss enemy!”
