Food Hierarchy!

Share This Post

With SO much information out there on nutrition it is hard to know where to start and what to eat. Some say avoid carbs, some say avoid fat, some say eat everything in moderation but what is the best way to eat. When you think of putting together a meal at ANY time of the day use the following order and you cant go wrong.

  1. Start every meal with some form of Protein (Lean steak, chicken, fish, eggs, nuts, seeds and lentils). Sure to help building the all important muscle and have you feeling fuller for longer!
  2. Fibrous Carbs– Think Vegetables and lots of different colours. High in nutrient value and low in calories
  3. Good Healthy Fats – Omega’s found in fish
  4. Fruit – at least two every day
  5. Starch Carbs  – natural starches and grains (breads, pastas, rice etc). 

Plan your meals rather than reacting when you are hungry and make sure this process is followed. You cant go wrong. Remember if you are on track to losing weight nutrient dense, high satiety foods (makes you feel fuller quicker and for longer) and  calorie sparse is your aim!

Use it or lose it…..

Maybe some of us have kind of dabbled in health and fitness. You know ‘The Amazing Watermelon Diet of the Stars’ in the weekly mag, or ‘Pilates is the answer to that flat belly you’ve always dreamt of’ on the prime time ‘health show’ or perhaps it was ‘Go hard or go home’ flyer of the ubiquitous 6 week challenge at the local gym that hooked you in, albeit until it got too hard or just finished.

Your Lifestyle Has Consequences

Have you ever heard the saying, ‘that you become what you think about all day long’? The same also applies to exercise, ‘you become what you do or don’t do on a regular basis’. Hence the headline today. The trick with this ‘consistent exercise gig’ we all know we need is to find your motivation. If you can achieve that, you will no longer need ‘will power’, as the reason for doing it drives the action on auto pilot.
