Stock up with the right foods
Healthy in, junk out. Before you begin, make sure your cupboards and fridge are stocked with all the deliciously healthy things you’ll need – and the junk has been, well, junked. That includes what you’ll need for meals and snacks, so that you’re less likely to revert to take-out pizza.
Eat three meals a day – especially breakfast.
Eating! How hard is that? The habit of fueling your body with regular, satisfying meals keeps your energy up, and reduces junk food cravings.
For breakfast, choose high fibre, slow burning carbs – like muesli with fruit, nuts, seeds and dairy or plant-based yogurt. Better yet, prep before you go to bed each night. If you’re running late, take it with you to work to avoid the high-fat, high-sugar muffin run.
Speaking of sugar – cut out all (yes, all) refined sugar. If you must supplement with sweetness, reach for honey or maple syrup. Instead of candy, eat fruit.
Don’t forget: Drink more water! Carry your refillable water bottle with you wherever you go.
