5 Tips to Adopt Into The New Year
- Avoid rocking up to an event hungry or skipping meals, you’re blood sugar levels will be low and other than it makes for a cranky party-pooper you’ll wear down your willpower too early in the day. I find making a snack that’s high in protein such as a smoothie with pea protein or trail nut mix can curb the edge a little.
- Chew your food properly, I’m talking about chewing each mouthful at least 20 x times. Most times we rush when we eat, how you eat is just as important as what you eat.
- Enjoy your food! Chewing our food more helps but being mindful about what we are eating and noticing things the textures, the complexity or simplicity of flavours, the smell all plays a part in not only digestion but just the sheer enjoyment!
- Use the crowding out method as a natural way to portion control. What this means is filling up your plate with the nutrient-dense food that you know is going to fuel and support your body and leaving less room for the fun foods. That way it’s not saying no or limiting your intake of the fun stuff because your body will be already deep satisfied with the good stuff.
- It’s hard to talk and eat at the same time! So focus on quality time spend with your friends and family and allow food to be the companion and not the main event.
