Advice, advice… So much nutritional advice…
Despite all the nutritional info overload, statistics say obesity is on the up, and so are food intolerances, such as wheat allergy, gluten intolerance… The list is long. My builder (don’t ask!) is gluten intolerant for heavens sake: I offered him a good strong mug of builders tea and a biscuit to which he politely declined and asked for a wheat & lactose free alternative. “Let me get you some soya milk” I said. “I don’t want to be difficult’ he whispered “but is it organic and GM free?”
I have made some attempts to clean up my diet, through january, and all I have to say is I am glad is over. (Back to Kir Royales by the 14th february.)
There is no doubt though that some degree of restraint is essential – I will be trying these principles for the remaining winter.
#Eat three meals a day -no more no less
#Each meal to contain lots of protein and vegetables, cut down sugar & wheat
#Don’t mix proteins in one meal, do not repeat proteins lunch & dinner.
#Finish your evening meal by 9.00 pm. Then don’t eat again, you won’t starve
#Drink lots of water between meals. Around two litres, then you won’t be hungry either.
#Eat one apple a day and if you like one other fruit after each meal.
#Get moving, take the stairs rather than the lift, walk to work move! Yoga & meditation are excellent for mind and body, but they need consistency, they are not quick fixes..
