New Year, new you! That’s probably what the majority of people think as another year goes by, and more often than not, the first resolution is to transform your body by eating healthier and exercising more.

However, when people say they’re going to improve their lifestyle they expect it to happen overnight, and can be achieved by jumping on the latest FAD bandwagon…and unfortunately there’s plenty to choose from!

Vegetarian & Vegan Diets - Pros & Cons

Vegetarian & vegan style diets are very popular nowadays, including athletes. They are claimed to be the healthiest diet to follow because they prioritise naturally sourced plant based foods (fruits and vegetables). This is great and probably how all diets should be, but is this the only benefit and are there any downsides to a plant-based diet?

Take your time when you're eating to promote satiety and support fat loss.

Consuming fewer calories than the amount you use for energy is key for fat loss. There are many little techniques that are effective in controlling your appetite, to help reduce the amount you eat, to achieve a calorie deficit.

One technique is eating your meals slowly. This promotes satiety and can aid fat loss by:

Healthy Snacking - What, When, Why?

Snacking can be a lot of people's downfall and the difference between a successful and unsuccessful diet. Snacking is a great opportunity between meals to fuel the body with protein rich and nutrient dense foods. Used correctly, they can fuel training, aid recovery and keep you on track with your goals. Abuse the privilege of a snack by over-eating calories and choosing poor options, can lead to excess weight gain.

When people start diets, or attempting to just eat healthily, they can sometimes oversee the big picture, that is to create healthy eating habits that can be sustained in the long-term, not just the first week.

By overseeing the big picture, I mean that eating well 100% of the time is just unrealistic, and you will soon start to miss and crave a treat, whether it be some chocolate, crisps or alcohol.

I thought I'd start the nutrition tips with an important message of lifestyle change as long-term health is the ultimate goal, not losing a few pounds for a special occasion.

Diets often fail as they target short-term goals and are not sustainable in the long-term. Instead, what you should aim to do is find a 'diet' or a 'nutrition lifestyle' that you can enjoy and can stick to for the rest of your life!

Meal before training

It’s a Saturday morning and my brother is getting ready for a 10km run in preparation for an upcoming race. My sister is going out for a light run as she wants to lose a few pounds before next month’s holiday. They both eat the same breakfast consisting of cereal and fruit juice because they want to have enough energy to get through their run.

This sets the tone for every training session they both do, but should they be eating the same thing based on their training? The simple answer is no.

There are 2 main factors that influence what to eat before you train. They are:

Detoxes & juice diets are popular dieting strategies that are advocated to cleanse, detoxify, recharge, or “fat-flush” your body by eliminating dangerous toxins and impurities from the body. This is an attractive solution for individuals looking for a quick fix to improve body composition and health by rapidly burning unwanted body fat. However, the reason for notable reductions in body weight is misleading.

You’re eating healthier, exercising more, drinking less, and generally feeling a lot better in yourself. The New Year is a great time to change your lifestyle for the better, and you may even find that you’re better off financially! But what else can you change about what you were doing previously that will make you better off for a sustainably healthy 2016?

Christmas is a time to relax, spend time with loved ones and most importantly eat lots of food! This ultimately results in many people letting loose until the New Year when they can begin a “detox” diet with the intention of losing their Christmas weight (plus more), and looking better than they did before. Don’t sacrifice your body this Christmas as you can maintain your physique simply by exercising regularly and applying a few smart changes to what you eat.

It’s the start of the New Year and many people are thinking about getting fitter and how to eat healthier. This always comes with many people advocating a variety of new diet trends in order to support weight loss and healthy eating, but this can be very confusing to a lot of people, particularly those who pay a lot of attention to what the media has to say!
