5 Food tips for weight loss

Making big changes to your diet can often seem daunting. But making one small change at a time can have a positive effect on your weight loss or health goals.

Here are 5 examples of how you can make a small change that could make a big difference:

  1. Eat eggs for breakfast

Scrambled eggs with chicken or turkey, a 3 egg omelette with veg or poached eggs with salad. This low calorie, unprocessed whole food is a great way to keep you full until lunch.

  1. Swap milk chocolate for dark

The higher the cocoa content of chocolate the less you’ll find you need to eat to curb that chocolate craving. 2-4 pieces is all you need! 

  1. Eat oats not granola

Regular porridge oats are unprocessed whereas granola is coated in sugared water to bind those clusters together. Try oats and whole milk or almond milk with blueberries or apple and cinnamon for that unprocessed, sweet taste.

  1. Adjust your proportions

Love chicken curry with rice? Make sure your proportions are 2/3rds meat and 1/3 rice, and use a dessert bowl rather than a dinner plate to reduce the amount you eat. You’ll find it’s more than enough! 

  1. Try Bulgur wheat

It’s quicker to cook than pasta, high in fibre and protein and great with chicken, fish and veg. It’s my go-to meal for work days as I can make it in under 15 mins, pack it in a lunch box and go!
