Top Tips For A Healthy Diet

Need to get back on track with your healthy eating? We have rounded up 10 of the best quick tips for a healthy diet that will instantly kick-start your daily diet to a more healthy state.

Drink lots of water

Take a 1.5-litre — that’s over 2.5 pints — bottle of water to work with you, and try to finish it all by home time. It might involve a few extra toilet breaks in the day, but it’s worth it.

Eat the recommended portions of fruit and vegetables every day

If you find this difficult, then remember that smoothies, juices and dried fruit all count. Although advice on how many portions of fruit and vegetables a day can vary from country to country, average recommendations tend to be between 5-10 portions a day.

Never skip breakfast

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day! Opt for something that will release energy slowly — porridge and a handful of blueberries are a great option!

Plan your meals for the week ahead

Write a shopping list and stick to it — and never shop when you’re hungry, as this is a fatal error that inevitably leads you to stuffing your shopping trolley full of junk!

Keep a supply of healthy snacks to hand

Snacks can include fresh and dried fruit, wholesome cereal bars, rice cakes, low-fat fruit yogurts and wholemeal pitta and hummus.

Remove all visible fat from food before you cook it

Take the skin off chicken and trim the white fat off any meat. Also, try to avoid eating too many processed meats such as sausages and burgers (the fat’s not visible from the outside, but it’s certainly there).
