5 key points which may help you with your fat loss goals

  • Protein

    Eat protein with every meal: 1 palm sized portion of protein with each meal for women, 2 palm sized portions for men.

  • Fat

    Eat fat with EVERY meal! Contrary to popular belief your fat intake should be as high at 1/3 of your total calorie intake. This has a heap of beneficial factors including helping to suppress your appetite and reduce your risk of snacking between meals.

    Aim for a range of fats including poly mono and saturated fat. Get it eaten; your body will thank you for it!

  • Processed Carbs

    Reduce your intake of processed carbohydrates, try to limit this and stick to whole foods.

  • Veggies

    Eat your 5-a-day we always hear. Eat your greens and then eat some more! However, limit your fruit intake to 1 small portion with each meal.

  • Eat!

    Your metabolism is directly linked to your calorific intake so ensure you are eating enough. Fad diets rely on a large and often dangerous calorie deficit. Don’t fall into that trap, you will trash your body and hormones, and your mood will be terrible!
