Hope you are all enjoying my mini nutrition series.
Living a healthy lifestyle is not about strict diet limitations, trying to be unrealistically thin or depriving yourself of the foods you love. For me, it’s all about feeling great, having more energy, improving my outlook on life and stabilising my mood.
There is some very overwhelming and conflicting diet advice out there, don’t be discouraged, you’re not alone.
Let me help you cut thought all this confusion and learn how to create a healthier lifestyle that is good for mind and body.
Whether your goal is to lose weight, gain weight, build muscle, become fitter, feel better, feel stronger, have more energy, check out these tips to help achieve a healthier improved you.
To round up my mini nutrition series, we will finally talk about Greens and Veggies (fruit and veg).
Fresh Fruit and Vegetables contain many macronutrients, vitamins and minerals that your body needs to be healthy and strong.
Fruits and vegetables also help boost our immune system, boost our metabolism and help prevent disease.
You also get fibre from fruit and veg, which ensures a healthy digestive system and gut.
You should include:
Raw or cooked veg, greens and non starchy vegetables. Eg, leafy greens, broccoli.
How much should I need at each meal?
Aim for 7-10 portions of veg/fruit per day.
- One serving= 1 cup of leafy greens
- 1 med sized piece of fruit
- ½ cup chopped fruit/veg
• To optimise fat burn, try to limit yourself to 1-2 pieces of fruit per day, as it can be full of hidden sugars (carbs)
• To optimise muscle, gain try to eat fruit and veg on 1:3 ratio.
