HANDS UP IF YOU LOVE KOMBUCHA! (pronounced kom-BOO-cha) This fermented tea has been consumed for thousands of years but did you know about the nutritional benefits as well? Read on to find out more:
SERIOUSLY! So many of my clients restrict carbs at night as they think they will make them gain weight! They won’t… as long as the carbs/meals you consume are within your energy budget.
Put your hand up if you usually just slap breaky into a bowl without a care in the world! Cereal eaten from the box doesn’t count right? This picture is to demonstrate why I think it’s important to understand portions & serving sizes. Neither of these pictures is right or wrong depending on your goals. However, the majority of my clients are aiming to lose weight or maintain a healthy lifestyle so some aspect of portion consideration is needed.
Why I recommend eating breakfast
I personally believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Think of your body like a car, you need to put fuel into it regularly for it to run properly.
Healthy snacks can be included as part of a nutritious eating plan however you should only eat snacks if you are actually truly hungry or struggling to meet your daily energy requirements. Eating snacks when you’re not actually hungry can lead to unwanted weight gain. Many people find themselves eating snacks when they’re not hungry which may be due to habit, thirst or a response to boredom, stress or emotions. Too many high energy (kJ) snacks may stall your weight loss or even lead you to gain weight.
