Close the Kitchen

Choose a time that you will officially stop eating at night. Food is fuel, and you don’t need to fuel your body for rest. Stop eating 2 to 3 hours before bed for a better sleep and a flatter tummy in the morning.

HAVE a Diet Instead of Going ON a Diet

Be a careful (not obsessive!) eater. Find healthy foods you enjoy and maintain a diet you can live with, rather than restricting yourself to a rigid diet.

Eight Tips for Healthy Eating

The key to a healthy diet is to:

  • Eat the right amount of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you'll put on weight. If you eat and drink too little, you'll lose weight.
  • Eat a wide range of foods to ensure that you're getting a balanced diet and that your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs. It is recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). Women should have around 2,000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules). Most adults are eating more calories than they need, and should eat fewer calories.

The 5-Day Mini-Fast Plan

Fasting may seem like an extreme weight-loss measure but in order to lose weight, abstaining from food for a set period of time can help you drop a few pounds. The key to healthy and successful fasting, according to nutritionist Kellyann Petrucci, is to eat for eight hours a day, between 11 a.m. and 7 p.m., in between your non-eating hours. This way, you’ll nourish your body, balance your blood sugar, and maintain lower hunger hormone levels – all without depriving yourself unnecessarily. Get a jumpstart on your weight loss with this easy-to-follow five-day plan that will make you rethink the way you diet.

Healthy Lifestyle Key Attributes

Eat enough every day — not eating enough tells your body to conserve calories and energy, and so the next time you eat more of the energy will be retained rather than being properly used.

Hydrate – Dehydration makes you feel tired. Caffeine and alcohol are very dehydrating. Balance caffeine or alcohol consumption with non-caffeinated, non-alcoholic fluids.

Sleep – Sleep deprivation increases appetite (and often body weight) and decreases brain function. So proper sleep helps your energy, weight maintenance and your ability to think and concentrate.

Exercise – Try to exercise at least 30 minutes a day, three times a week – it can even be split up into 10 minute walks. The effects of brief physical exertion last much longer than those of caffeine, and exercise decreases stress rather than increasing it! Finding a physical activity that you really like to do will make exercise more fun and something to look forward to as well as help to keep you healthy throughout life. So try something new or something that has always appealed to you.

Think Positive Thoughts - Positive thinking isn't the same as trying to gloss over the negative things in life or ignore your problems. Positive thinking IS approaching the challenges life throws at you with a positive attitude. Instead of getting negative and worrying about a challenge, positive thinking will help you approach that problem with the attitude of "how can I make the best of this situation?'
