Quick Tips For A Healthy Food Shop

Below are a few tips to help you too become better with nutrition:

Try and start to do a few of these and you will soon find a positive change in your nutritional habits

 

WRITE A SHOPPING LIST

Plan your meals in advance (use a food diary) and make a shopping list, and stick to it! This will help to keep you on track as you won’t buy anything that you don’t need and anything that is on offer (which tends to be the sweet tempting things that are bad for you)

BUY SOME HEALTHY OPTIONS IN BULK

Whether this means a huge tub of Greek yogurt for the week or a big bag of quinoa, lentils, and almonds to last you a few months, your wallet will thank you.

AVOID RUSH HOUR

If you go when its busy you are less likely to read what you are actually buying. Go when its quiet and use the time to compare a few items, you will be surprised at the different nutritional values of the same product but different brand

CHECK THE FOOD LABELS

They can be deceiving but you need to know what you are eating!

  • Traffic light – aim for foods which are primarily green, avoid RED
  • Serving size – be careful here as what they suggest a serving size is will not be yours! Something that is 100 calories per serving may not be that good if you eat the whole thing and its serving size is 5 = 500 calories!
  • Ingredients list (see below)
  • Low fat/sugar/calories etc. – it is only lower than its original, other brands normal version may actually be better for you. It may have also just replaced with something else so cross check ingredients (most low fat products replace with sugar – if this is the case then buy the full one as you can burn fat off)

READ THE INGREDIENTS

Nothing is more important than the ingredients that you put into your body. If you don’t know what most of the ingredients are or if it has lots, then don’t buy it! The less ingredients it has the better.

CHECK OUT THE FREEZER SECTION

No – we are not talking about chips and frozen meals! Frozen vegetables can be just as nutritious as fresh vegetables since it can often take days between when the vegetables are harvested and when they end up on your plate. Frozen fruit such as strawberries are also a good option and cheaper than fresh too

DON’T GO WHEN YOU ARE HUNGRY

Going food shopping when you are hungry is a bad combination. You will end up buying convenience food that is quick – which tend to be the bad choices. Instead, have a small snack before you go which will keep you going till you get home

AVOID THE BAD/TEMPTING ISLES

All of the bad food – crisps, chocolate, biscuits, cakes etc are all on one isle, the best way to avoid buying these foods is to just AVOID it!

 

Try these quick tips and start to change your diet. If your still unsure and need a helping hand at changing your lifestyle then join us on one of our weekend bootcamp retreats in the UK or Fitness Holidays and we can help you transform your life for the better

How to be healthy and stay fit over Christmas

Christmas is the time of the year when everybody struggles to be healthy and continue their fitness journey, and 11 months of hard work can be wiped out in a few weeks! Don’t let this happen to you!

Follow the below tips to keep your body ticking over throughout the Christmas period, ready for the New Year

  • Don’t sit down everyday – try and do something active or the weight is soon going to start adding up – people can gain over a stone over the Christmas period, and it’s a lot harder to lose than it was to gain
  • Don’t drink too much – remember alcohol is empty calories. If you do drink, then remember to swap to the low calorie options if possible such as gin and slim line tonic. Mulled wine is nice but is pretty high in calories – click here
  • Don’t give up the gym – it’s the time of the year when you need to work out the most! Try to train regularly – if you struggle to make classes or gym then do 15 minute workouts a day at home, use hit/circuit sessions or YouTube videos to give you a few workout ideas
  • Don’t stress – Christmas is about having fun and enjoyment
  • Drink lots of water on a night out to keep you rehydrated and hopefully avoid the hangover in the morning. If you do have a hangover then get up and get out for some fresh air, the alcohol isn’t going to burn off and leave your system if you are in bed all day. Click here for more info
  • Get a workout buddy if you are struggling for motivation or make a pact with your class buddies that you will still keep going throughout Christmas. Many local fitness trainers and gyms also run Christmas bootcamps and challenges – sign up to one of these
  • Book an event for early 2018 to give you a goal to maintain – perfect for motivation and to keep you working out over the Christmas period. 5k runs are perfect for this – get others involved too. Even better – book a bootcamp weekend!
  • If you have an event which you know involves food and alcohol, plan a workout for that day and make it a pretty tough one – including HIT and weights! Not only will this make you feel great, but it will also increase your metabolism so you will burn the food/drink off more efficiently, and you won’t feel guilty because you have pre burned those additional calories – then enjoy your night
  • If you work in an office environment – avoid continuous snacking on Christmas junk food such as chocolates, cakes and biscuits. Instead limit yourself, or take in healthier options. The result – you won’t feel lethargic and tired all day at work, plus you won’t gain weight!
  • Get the family involved in fitness – active games such as dance, sports etc on the Xbox are a perfect way to keep the family entertained and active
  • Christmas Dinner – this is when everybody over indulges. Enjoy it but a few tips include don’t go back for seconds, eat at the dinner table so your body recognises you are eating (no tv), and eat slowly – it’s not a rush
