Tips & Ideas

Want to lose weight and change your eating habits to improve your image and your self-esteem?

Here are some simple steps
to help you on your way:

Eat a lean protein serving with every meal. Eat a high protein breakfast. Protein takes longer to metabolize therefore providing feelings of satiety for longer periods.
Eat more low-carb, low Glycemic Index fresh veggies. We need the minerals, nutrients and fibre.
Eat slowly, taking smaller morsels into your mouth and chewing each morsel thoroughly. You’ll clearly get the “full” or “satisfied” feeling.
Eat at least 3 well balanced meals a day. (protein, healthy low-carbs, small portion of healthy fat.
