You are what you eat. It really is that simple…
Water is essential to our existence. It is important for every process in our body. Most of us don’t drink enough, which effects our mood, productivity and hunger levels. Whether you work in construction or at a computer for 8 hours, drinking more water will stave away headaches and improve digestion. Scientists recommend 6-8 glasses (tumbler sized) of water a day. Try drinking 1 extra glass per day over the next week and see the difference it makes.
Eat more fibre
Fibre is awesome. It keeps our digestion healthy and makes us feel satisfied for longer. We should be eating around 30g of fibre per day. Swap white carbs (rice, pasta, bread) for brown and wholegrain varieties and eat 5 portions of fruit and veg per day. This advice has been circulating for years but it works.
Get rid of the junk
There is no quick fix to weight loss, increased energy and overall health. Changing your lifestyle so that you’re regularly eating fresh, minimally processed food is key to long term health benefits. This doesn’t need to be challenging and there are definitely ways to make healthy food look and taste incredible.
