With so much temptation around us its very easy to slip out of our healthy eating habits.
Here are my top 3 tips to beating the bulge!
1- Keep healthy snacks in the car
If you do a lot of miles in your car as I do the temptation when you stop to re fuel or take a comfort break are HUGE. Just a chocolate bar, a packet of crisps or a fizzy drink. it soon mounts up over a period of time. If you stopped and consumed something 3 times a week you could be taking on a whopping 900 calories extra a week!
Be organised. Keep healthy alternatives pre portioned out in your glove box. Make up a drink before you leave for work.
2- Be Organised!!!
The same way you should never go food shopping when your hungry, never wait till your hungry to start thinking about what you should eat. Prepare your food or at least have the right food at your house so you know what you are going to eat. This will stop you buying take aways and picking quick, unhealthy choices.
3- Portion Size
Control the size of your meals by first eating on a smaller plate, so you can fill it and visually feel you are eating more. Secondly if you make something and there is more than enough, make sure you put it all away or in tupperware before you eat so you do not go back and help yourself to more.
