5 ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT YOUR NUTRITIONAL HEALTH
For a healthier diet, try to eat more of these foods: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, lean proteins, and some low-fat dairy products.
Nutritional Support Activity #1
Take time to fully enjoy what you are eating and only go back for seconds on special occasions. This is called mindful eating.
Eating quickly or not paying attention to what you eat, known as mindless eating, can lead to eating too many calories.
Nutritional Support Activity #2
Focus on a natural, wholefood balanced eating plan. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables, fibre, slow releasing carbohydrates
(brown rice, quinoa, etc.) clean protein (chicken, beef, pork, fish, eggs, or vegetarian options), good fats
(olive oil), and sip on water all day.
Note: make a time to speak to our nutritionist/dietitian for a personalized eating plan, especially if have an
illness or want to lose weight.
Nutritional Support Activity #3
AVOID PROCESSED FOODS! Cut back on foods high in saturated and solid (trans) fats and added sugars and salt.
Only occasionally eat cookies, ice cream, candy, sweetened drinks, and fatty meats like bacon and hot dogs. .
Nutritional Support Activity #4
Start today thinking about food as being high quality fuel for your brain and body. The better quality, the higher
nutritional value the better your brain and body will perform. If you suffer from a chronic illness, want/need to lose a few kilos or you want to perform better then take the time to speak to our
nutritionist/dietitian for a personalized plan, that could also include nutritional supplements.
Nutritional Support Activity #5
Sip on water all day. Drink more water and other unsweetened beverages, instead of sugary and other high-calorie drinks.
Soda, sweetened juice, energy and sports drinks are a major source of added sugar and calories in many diets.
