Here are is my first set of tips, covering buying food, cooking food, eating food, eating out, exercise, enjoyment, support and motivation, and then how to measure your success in each of these components to successful healthy weight managment.
1. Buying food
Here are some top tips!!- Low GI foods, such as bananas, apples and baked beans should help keep you fuller for longer. Buy some of my recommended books on GI diets and Healthy Eating from my Amazon webshop - http://astore.amazon.co.uk/alcov-21.
- Look at MY Cambridge online on calorific values of foods. E.g 1x Clementine/satsuma = 22 Cals, 1x Apple = 47 Cals, 1x plain wholegrain toast = 58 Cals, 1x small banana = 76 Cals, 1x300ml lager = 87 Cals, 1x chocolate digestive biscuit = 89 Cals, 25g packet of crisps = 132 Cals, 440ml bitter = 141 Cals, 25g salted roasted peanuts = 150 Cals, 1x 250ml glass white or red wine = 170 Cals. A large glass of wine is more calorific than a Cambridge soup or shake (approx 145 Cals)!
