KUNLE'S HEALTHY EATING TIPS
By our fitness coach Kunle Odetoyinbo MSc BSc CN Med.
Healthy eating is really more about getting into good habits and sticking to them. It’s about little things like substituting a ready meal for a proper dinner including fresh vegetables, and not snacking on chocolate every afternoon but eating an apple instead.
These following ten tips - which will be posted on the site over the coming weeks - advise you on getting into good habits, without having to cut out all the treats you enjoy.
If you look at the shopping list of most families or individuals over the course of a month, a clear pattern emerges. This pattern is not just evident in the type of foods we eat but also the places we shop! Attempt to increase both the variety of food groups you consume including meats, fruit, vegetables, dairy products and the places you buy them from. Increase the variety of foods that you eat by trying produce from independent shops and foods you haven’t eaten before.
