Eat to fuel yourself for health, not disease.
Most of us need to make better decisions with foods and drinks to help protect our health. The evidence shows that most diets are equally effective when it comes to weight loss; the key is to find an approach that you can enjoy in the long term.
For a long term diet that improves your health and helps you to achieve as well as maintain a healthy weight, you need to create healthy habits. This isn't always easy to do, particularly when there's so much confusing information out there!
That's where the "Creating Healthy Habits" book can help you. This book will help you set nutrition-related goals to help you achieve your bigger health goals, as well as provide you with evidenced-based nutrition and food information and education. You'll learn about macronutrients, the food groups, how to eat out healthier, and how to read food labels, which is a really important skill to have to decipher food package marketing and help you decide if a food is actually healthy for you or not!
The Creating Healthy Habits book comes with an 8-week menu plan, that's based on whole foods that nourish your body and mind and improve your gut health. The meals are nutrient-rich, taste delicious and help you to look and feel like your best you. There are also weekly shopping lists and lots of healthy, quick, easy and delicious recipes, that are also family friendly! Recipes in the recipe book also come with a nutritional analysis and dietary summary.
The menu plan is designed to be used in conjunction with physical activity. Regular physical activity is important for physical and mental health - any amount of physical activity is better than doing none at all! Increasing the amount of physical activity you do will provide more health benefits. If you currently don't do a lot of physical activity, start gently - such as by walking - gradually building up towards 30-60 minutes of physical activity, and do this 4-5 times a week. Ideally, use a combination of strength and cardio-based physical activity - public health recommendations are to include strength-based physical activity at least 2 days a week. Consult a health professional if unsure.
You don't have to go to a gym to do your daily physical activity either! "How to do HIIT at Home" from BBC One The Truth About... shows you how to a 5 minute high-intensity workout without leaving your house.
For the best results, I recommend following the Embody program by Alyssa. Scroll down for more information about "Embody by Alyssa".
