Main­tain your reg­u­lar eat­ing habits. Have three meals daily – break­fast, lunch and din­ner and healthy snacks.

Avoid go­ing to par­ties hun­gry. Eat some­thing light be­fore­hand to re­duce chances of overeat­ing on of­ten high calo­rie party food.

It does not mat­ter if you are fly­ing, go­ing on a car trip, for a pic­nic or to a friend’s BBQ, if you want to com­mit to eat­ing well, take healthy food sup­plies with you

. Don’t be­come a vic­tim to your food en­vi­ron­ment and find your­self hun­gry with no other choice but to eat what’s avail­able.

In­stead of chips, dip, cheese and crack­ers on plat­ters, try veg­etable sticks, hum­mus, plain pop­corn, un­salted nuts, fruit, cherry toma­toes, green and red pep­per chunks, dried or fresh fruit, gherkins or pick­led onions. Keep a men­tal note of the to­tal amount of food you are eat­ing – it all adds up and it’s easy to overeat

Have lots of sal­ads and only a cou­ple of meat op­tions.

Beef or chicken ke­babs make a healthy al­ter­na­tive to sausages.

Low fat yo­ghurt, low fat ice-cream and fresh fruit make fab­u­lous healthy desserts

Fill your plate with fresh fruit and veges, rice, pasta and ce­re­als first! If hav­ing a treat, en­joy it. But only buy small por­tions. Sip as much wa­ter as you can dur­ing the day. – sport waikato.org
