Positive changes…

25/11/2013

Its been a busy month for me, plenty of clients wanting to get into their little black dress for their Christmas do, or just preparing for the food onslaught over Christmas, more blogs on this.

I encourage my clients to adopt a new way of eating and thinking, educating them on the benefits and the possible long term results,  which means you continue eating healthier  forever, in theory. The rest is up to you.  You really don’t want to be dieting every year do you?  so make a change that lasts.

The eating part:

Increase vegetables, that is all vegetables like fennel, cabbage, beetroots, broccoli, carrots, endive, string beans, peas, cucumber, lettuce, rocket, spinach and have a some fruit like berries and apples / making sure your plate is at least 1/2 veggies

Increase protein, nuts, seeds, fish, seafood, pulses, beans, lentils, organic eggs and chicken and meat (organic where possible, grass fed preferably) 1/4 or more of your plate.  The rest of your plate is complex carbs like brown rice, sweet potato or squash, 1/4 or less.

Reduce fizzy pop, chocolate bars, cakes, sandwiches as snack, crisps and processed food.coffee shop

The thinking part:
Break the coffee shop habit, or sweet shop habit, it’s not a treat for your health, its only a treat to your taste buds.  Save the money you would spend at the coffee shop in a piggy bank each day, you could afford a at least 2 massages a month if you do that, now that’s a treat!  And you would reduce your calories by 500 per day and have something to look forward to!!

When you feel like something you fancy, ask yourself:

Am I thirsty? Take a drink of water
Am I bored? Change task, go for  walk outside for 5 mins
Am I a cross? Let it go, if you can’t control the situation let it go
Am I feeling lonely? Make a plan for the weekend and have something to look forward to

This helps you break the state, so just by doing something else, your mind will be diverted to a positive action!

Let me know how you get on
