We’ve drummed up these great tips to use as a starting point for a really promising weight loss programme.

  • Make water your ‘go to’ drink. Have a large glass the minute you wake up and have a glass with every meal.
  • Eat eggs for breakfast.
  • Eat more white fish.
  • Eat as much ‘grow above the ground’ vegetable sources as possible! Just watch the dressing portions you use on salads.
  • Consider vegetables that grow below the ground as ‘carbs’, for example potato, sweet potato, squash, swedes, carrots, parsnips, celeriac.
  • Avoid processed foods wherever possible (if you eat bread aim for rye or seeded versions). Keep pasta as a treat.
  • When cooking rice try adding cauliflower cous cous or quinoa, as to reduce overall carb content.
  • Avoid coffee creations. Drink black or white. Avoid latte’s and cappucino’s etc.
  • Avoid eating double portions of diary in one sitting (for example milky porridge with a cappuccino, or a feta salad followed by a yoghurt).
  • Pre-empt low blood sugar levels, for example if you have a two hour meeting, take on board a few seeds or nuts, and hydrate.
  • Don’t starve yourself. People make poor choices when hungry!
  • Eat protein in all major meals, in fact try and snack with it (for example boiled eggs, cold cuts, sashimi, tuna/sardines, peanut butter on an apple, protein shakes, high protein yoghurts, cottage cheese).
  • Booze – Aim for dry whites or clear spirits with low sugar mixers, or better yet, don’t drink it!
  • Supplement with Omega 3.
