Planning, Planning, Planning
Planning is the key to dietary success. Take time out each week and day to consider your meals and snacks in advance and you will find it is much easier to keep on track with your food each day.
Fruit and Veggies for Optimal Health
Have you had your 2 pieces of fruit and 5 servings of veggies today? Eating enough fresh fruit and veggies each day is the most powerful step you can take towards optimal health. Aiming to include at least one green and orange vegetable each day will help to boost your nutrient intake. Always aim for at least 2-3 cups of salad or veggies with your evening meals to help keep yourself full and satisfied.
Pay attention to the times you enjoy your meals and snacks and ideally aim for 3-4 hours in between each meal or snack to support appetite and weight control. Snack only if you are genuinely hungry in between meals. A nutritionally balanced snack will contain 5-10g of protein and / or 3-5g of dietary fibre to help keep you full in between meals.
Don't forget your good fats!
We need 3-4 serves of good fat each day for good health or a couple of tablespoons of olive oil, a handful of nuts, or a serve of avocado.
Hydration is an important part of weight control – aim for at least 2L of water, herbal tea or sparkling or soda water each day for optimal hydration.
Iron-Rich Foods are Important for Balanced Nutrition
For meat-eaters, remember we need 3-4 serves of lean red meat each week to ensure we get enough iron. For non-meat eaters, aim to include iron-rich plant foods such as legumes, eggs, or leafy greens in your diet each day.
Fancy a treat?
100 calorie treats you can factor into your daily diet include a couple of squares of dark chocolate, a small glass of wine, or a biscuit or two.
Get your Weekly
Aim for 2-3 serves of oily fish such as salmon or sardines each week to get the optimal amounts of omega 3 fats each week.
Fibre is Important
Aim for 30g of dietary fibre each day to reach your daily fibre target.
