    Nutritional guidance for Weight Loss

    The only way to lose weight is to expend more energy and calories than you consume. Therefore becoming more active by doing cardio-vascular exercise and by lifting weights will help. But the secret is to watch what you eat and consume less calories.

    Good foods to consume are fresh fruits and vegetables as they contain a lot of good fibre, antioxidants, vitamins and are low in calories. Fruit and vegetables fill up the stomach fast satisfying hunger better.

    Try to keep portion size small, generally speaking a handful of food is enough as a portion. Eating smaller portion sizes at more regular intervals is better for the body, try to consume 6 small meals a day rather than 3 big meals. This helps to balance blood sugar levels and calorie intake throughout the day.

    Eat fresh food as opposed to packaged fast food, packaged fast foods contain lots of salt and fat.

    Always read nutrition labels on food packaging, look for low calorie, high fibre, low saturated fat, low salt foods.

    Watch what you drink, avoid sugary drinks and sports drinks, try to replace as much of what you drink with water, consuming more water will also fill you up suppressing appetite.
