As the heat wave continues in the UK, and people may be heading for their holidays and perhaps worrying about their body being exposed (though I promise you people are not likely to be judging you and some are likely to be focusing on worrying about their own bodies!), I want to encourage you away from dieting and towards balanced nutrition, seeing food for health and like a medicine, and then you will glow form the inside! Below are some basic nutrition guidelines to help you along the way.
Please see the services page link on the welcome page of this site for booking and prices if you are interested in booking a nutrition consultation (online, in person or on video call).
Instead of thinking too much about foods being ‘good’ or ‘bad’, let us think more about a balance of needed nutrients, about getting the healthier nutrients the body needs, and the other things to be left to have in moderation. Of course, there are foods that are not so good for us, like refined sugars, and saturated fats. This does not mean you cannot indulge in a pastry now and then or some sweets…balance and moderation are key. You can also live healthily without these foods. The choice is yours on that one.
Think of food as a type of maintenance medicine and a strengthening medicine. Getting the right nutrients gives you energy and health to accomplish what you need, and to your better ability. Nutritional deficiency may affect mood and brain function, may make you tired and may make you lose focus.
Here are the six main groups of nutrients, of which we need all six in order to be healthy:
