Tips & Tricks

+ Slow down. Try Mindful eating

  • Don’t eat on the go or while watching TV. Eat at a table if possible.
  • Eating meals at the table will help you to focus on the amount of food you eat.
  • Don’t eat while walking, wait until you get there and take time concentrating on what you are eating.

+ Swap a snack

If your daily snacking habits involve a sugary muffin, cookie, pastry or chocolates, try setting yourself a starting goal of 2 or 3 days a week where you swap this for fresh fruit and yoghurt or veggie sticks and hummus.

+ Take the stairs today!

Challenge yourself today: swap the elevator for the stairs. This quick burst of activity gets your heart pumping, burns calories, and even improves mood. Plus, you’ll feel accomplished conquering those steps! Remember, small changes add up big.
