Stay fit and well
Post-holiday weight-loss plan
✱ Get Back into a routine. this means eating three square meals a day, not grazing all day. ✱ eat fresh, quality food. cut out all processed foods and ready meals. they might be convenient, but they’re full of additives, chemicals and sugars. ✱ eat Large amounts of vegetables. make each meal around 70% vegetables (this will also provide you with healthy carbs) and around 30% goodquality protein – eg, chicken, fish, chickpeas, beans, tofu, etc. use healthy fats, including olive oil, coconut oil, nuts, seeds, avocado and occasionally a tiny bit of butter. drink plenty of water throughout the day. ✱ cut Down on stimulants such as coffee and alcohol. ✱ Don’t snack Between meals. Latest research shows that fasting between meals allows the body to burn more calories and speeds up weight loss. ✱ replenish Lost nutrients. take a daily multivitamin. also, taking a vitamin c supplement that contains added antioxidants will help to repair any holiday sun damage. try Biocare adult multivitamins & minerals, £11.95 for 30, and Biocare Bio-antioxidant 2000, £17.45 for 30. ✱ Look after your Gut. erratic eating and holiday tummy bugs can throw gut bacteria out of balance, but you need plenty of good bacteria to lose weight more effectively. try Biocare Bioacidophilus (a probiotic), £23.95 for 60 capsules.
