He­len Bond, con­sul­tant di­eti­cian

Good Housekeeping (UK) - - Good Health -

‘It’s not a very sexy mes­sage, but this ad­vice was given to me early on by a fel­low di­eti­cian and I’ve al­ways fol­lowed it. Eating is not just about nutri­tion, it’s also about plea­sure, so if you get the right bal­ance 80% of the time, you can al­low your­self treats for the re­main­ing 20%. And get­ting the right bal­ance means cook­ing from scratch us­ing fresh in­gre­di­ents. I’ve also al­ways fol­lowed my mum’s mantra – fill half the plate with veg­eta­bles and the rest with pro­tein and carbs. Fol­low those rules and you’ll get your nu­tri­ents and stay a healthy weight.’
