Here’s some useful tips for leading a healthier lifestyle…

Eat regularly

Always have a healthy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Eating breakfast kick-starts your metabolism and consuming food at regular intervals maintains this throughout the day. Skipping meals decreases your metabolism.

Drink Sensibly

If you drink alcohol, drink sensibly. Women should not exceed
2-3 units per day and men should not exceed 3-4 units per
day. Remember though that all alcoholic drinks are high in
calories and contain very little nutrition.

Portion size

Use around a 9” plate at meal times. Vegetables should cover half your plate, carbohydrates such as potatoes, rice or pasta should cover a quarter and lean meat or fish should cover the final quarter.

Eat a variety of foods

This is to ensure that you receive all the nutrients your body needs e.g. vitamins, minerals, energy, protein, calcium, fluids etc.

Move more!

Regular exercise burns calories. Increasing your muscle mass also increases your metabolism. Therefore combine cardiovascular exercises like jogging and walking with resistance exercises like lifting weights or doing body weight exercises.
