This plan will help keep your body healthy by retaining all the nutrients we need. This is not a calorie counting diet, or one where you will feel starved; however through drinking plenty of water throughout the day, this will take down bloating and help you to feel fuller.
7-Day Healthy Eating Plan | 5 Key Tips
#1 Drink Water!
The more water you drink for your body, the better you will feel and the less bloated you will feel – and look! How you may wonder? If we do not supply the correct amount what our body needs it retains extra and unnecessary water, however once we start fuelling our body with the right amount our bodies are ‘convinced’ it no longer needs the retained water; therefor loosing this extra weight, leaving our clothes a little looser and your skin brighter. A recommendation of 2-3 litres of water a day is needed for your bodies.
#2 Substitute sugary drinks
In this kick start, you do not have to drink plain water you can add flavour to your bottles and glasses creating detox waters. Each of these included in your water help to flush out harmful toxins in your body, aid digestion, contain anti-inflammatory properties, holds natural pain relief and aids your skin to brighten up.
Popular ingredients which can be added are:
✓ Mint leaves
✓ Aloe Vera leaves
#3 Choose the right Macronutrients
(Macros): there are three which are the source of this healthy plan, and they consist of: Protein, carbohydrate and fats (this does not mean burgers and fries unfortunately, rather the good fats for example- avocado, salmon, almonds, coconut oil etc.) and these help us to stay healthy and energized throughout the day.
To have a healthy diet, it is all about balancing and tailoring your nutritional intake as to stay healthy we need more than forty nutrients and no single food can provide them all.
#4 No Calorie counting!
Your guideline amount of how many grams of each nutrient you are allowed depends on how many calories you are consuming a day… however – you are not calorie counting! In fact you are dividing the percentage of your daily intake, into the right amount of the macros you need, therefore hitting your average calorie intake.
#5 Plan your meals
Plan what to eat and what to eliminate: Whilst being involved in this healthy plan eliminate your intake of alcohol, caffeine and tea. The meals which are provided below, the recipes can be found on the Myprotein Recipe Page in The Zone!
