Whether this advice be for general well-being or as sports nutrition advice to help improve your performance I can help. We can talk about your relationship with food, how you control it or it controls you? Often I ask clients to keep a food diary to help us assess where there may be a problem, this can be very informative.
There are many do’s and don’ts talked about when dealing with nutrition and diet but the bottom line is to lose weight/fat you need to burn more calories than you take in. To do this effectively is to do it gradually. Weight that has been gained happened little by little and therefore to lose it has to be at a similar speed, anything other than this means you are losing muscle tone which will only slow down your metabolism leading to the likelihood of regaining weight easier in the long term.
I try to encourage clients to never eliminate foods from their life but just to make sure everything and anything in moderation. If you eliminate any given food your desire for it will always be there and at some weak moment the wheels will come off and you’ll find yourself gorging on that forbidden food! Ideally you want to be in a position where each perceived danger food is controlled by you – not you by it!
There are many strategies to help you keep a healthy diet, shopping after eating, smaller plate size, avoiding tv dinners (distractions), chewing your food thoroughly, putting your knife and fork down between each mouthful, the list goes on and on.
