Eating Habits

Tips for healthy eating habits

Avoid eating processed convenience foods as much as you can due to their high sugar, fat and salt content. These are very addictive, this means takeaways as well!

Eat smaller portions (as much protein as possible) regularly, don’t limit yourself to 3 meals a day. Try to eat at least 5 small meals, this will keep your blood sugar levels constant so you won’t have those peaks and troughs.

Starting calories would be 1,450 (145×10)
