Keep a Food/Mood Diary
I have already touched briefly on the mechanics of keeping a food diary in previous patters, but there is a reason for keeping a food diary that is equally if not more interesting than simply marking calories.
A great way to monitor your energy balance but also how you feel about what you are eating and to help you identify what drives you to making slips. I...

A healthy eating plan does not have to ruin your social life - it’s all about making sensible choices and not being afraid to ask for nutritional info where possible.
Many restaurants are wising up to the fact that the public are taking more care over what they eat and are offering more transparency with their nutritional information so don’t be shy to ask for a guide, especially...

Don’t make promises you can’t keep
It’s no good to swear off booze, crisps or chocolate when you know you’ll be a cold sweat every time you go to the shops trying not to buy them. If you do that and fall off the wagon, you’ll be more likely to give up on you healthy eating regime all together.
Rather than go cold turkey, try to make compromises to include...

Leading on from tip 3, knowing how much to eat of a given food is important in not over eating.
Someone may claim to have a perfect diet, only eating fruit, veg, lean meat and complex carbs but if they are eating three times what they should be of those food, they will still put on weight!
A great way to make sure you are portioning correctly is to invest in a cheap...

Join the local revolution!
If you're a local business or consumer you only have to look at all these smiling faces in the EDP today promoting the wealth of local foods and services to know you need to get involved!
Buying local is not only better for you because you get better quality and service but it's good for the local economy and the environment too!

Learn to Read Labels
The food industry is worth billions of pounds and large companies don’t make record profits by having tiny margins.
Vegetables, less refined sugars, good quality oils and so many more good food ingredients are expensive and as such, are not often used in cheap mass produced meals and snacks. Markups are made using cheap ingredients such as white flour, white...

Eat Food not Products
I like to make a very broad distinction between food and products - potatoes are food, chips and crisps (while made from them) are products; noodles are a food, Pot Noodles (and other branded snack lunches) are a product; fruit is food, when turned into a high sugar ‘juice drink’ it’s a product.
You can eat plenty of food and be healthy but very...

In my experience, no matter how much you learn on the subject of healthy eating, no matter how good your knowledge of percentages and statistics, unless you have good practical knowledge of how to put this into action, it counts for very little.
With the pace of life as fast as it it and with the daily demands on our time, making sure each meal we eat is well balanced can often slip down the...

This is an ideal time to remind yourself to eat some fruit in the day!
Post-lunch and pre-dinner is a dangerous time for dieters. If you have those little tummy rumblings then the urge to stop off at the petrol station for a snack on the way home can be overwhelming and for those at home, the evening meal can seem so much further away when you’re hungry and the temptation of food is...
