Ollie & Adria's Top Tips
“Eat Food, Not Too Much, Mostly Plants” - focus on a plant-based, whole foods, unprocessed natural diet to give your body the nutrients and vitamins it needs
Up Your Fruit & Veg Intake - recent studies indicate 10 a day is optimum for long-term health benefits. How about including more fruit and veg in your breakfast - veg-based smoothies, adding fruit to your porridge, tomatoes on your avocado and toast. Order an extra vegetable side when you’re eating out.
Eat at Least One Portion of Green Vegetables Per Day - green leafy vegetables such as spinach, cabbage, kale, broccoli, watercress and rocket help to establish a healthy body and immune system
Eat the Rainbow - ensure your meals incorporate a range of different coloured fruit and vegetables to maintain nutritional variety in your diet
Prepare Healthy Snacks - be ready with healthier options on hand when snacking desire hits, especially in the office - fruit, vegetable sticks with nut butters and hummus and olives can be good alternative options
Prioritise Home Cooking - preparation is key. Consider having a weekend prep session to get ready for the week ahead. Roasting vegetables such as carrots, sweet potatoes, butternut squash and parsnips can help you to pull together meals quickly during the week
Gradually Tweak Your Habits Step by Step - permanent change doesn’t happen overnight and it takes an average of 66 days to form a habit so start small and be consistent. Try out two new healthy eating practices every couple of weeks and build on them every fortnight
Consider What Support System You May Need - be open to getting coaches, having friends and family on board or joining groups (physical or online) to keep you accountable
Have an 80/20 Approach to Healthy Eating - it doesn’t have to be all or nothing. 80% of the time, eat well, 20% of the time, enjoy those less healthy treats without guilt, to avoid getting into a cycle of restriction and bingeing
