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 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.
7) Body not fat...
Become body composition conscious not weight conscious. How much we weigh is not the most important determinant of our health in many regards. In fact, in many cases putting on weight is perceived as a bad thing when it may be that the weight gain is due to muscle building or even water intake, not fat. Seek professional help at your local leisure centre or doctor’s surgery and have your body composition assessed, this will tell you how much fat (%) you have relative to muscle and other tissues in your body.
