FOOD, DRINK and Lifestyle Recommendations From Now Slim
Eating sensibly, regularly, will help to keep your metabolism going and is much healthier than binging once or twice a day. We recommend drinking plenty of filtered or spring water (at least 8-10 glasses per day) and fruit or herbal teas. Water is as it not only detoxifies but also hydrates the body.
It is important that you eat sensibly, i.e. breakfast, lunch, evening meal and healthy snacks, such as fruit and vegetables. If you reduce your food intake by starving yourself your metabolic rate will drop because the body thinks it is starving and stores more fat. It is important for you continue as normal.
Snacks can be beneficial as research shows that grazing is always better than gorging, as it stimulates the metabolism. Eating foods high in fibre and natural sugars help to stabilize blood sugar levels and reduce hunger.
Ideal fruit snacks include apples, berries, grapes, grapefruit, cherries, peaches, plums, oranges and tangerines.
Fresh salad and vegetables, such as celery, cucumber and carrots are also excellent.
