Foods that are high on the glycaemic index (G.I.) will spike your blood glucose and cause a rapid insulin response that can be problematic to your health in the long term. Many processed foods and packaged fruit juices have higher G.I. levels because of the sugar content. I suggest you avoid these and try to pack in as many wholefoods as possible. In addition, try to avoid sugary soft and fizzy drinks, as they’re high in calories. They’re also bad for your teeth.

Smoothies are always a good option:

You need to drink plenty of fluids to stop you from getting dehydrated. It’s recommended that you drink 6 to 8 glasses every day. This is in addition to the fluid you get from the food you eat. When you’re time-poor, blending a smoothie is an amazing way to boost your nutrient intake for the day. However, your combined total of drinks from fruit juice, vegetable juice and smoothies should not be more than 150ml a day, which is a small glass. Pack your drink full of nutrient-rich foods. Such as spirulina, chia seeds, cacao, coconut oil, egg, maca, chlorella, bee pollen, walnuts or buckwheat kernels to put a spring in your step.

Prepare healthy snacks ahead of time:

Make healthy treats such as nut butter with superfoods such as coconut oil, macadamia butter, Manuka honey, and shredded coconut. And keep them in the fridge or freezer. Cut up some celery and carrot batons ahead of time and grab your nut butter as you head out the door before school, work or the gym. Packed full of natural fats they’ll also keep you feeling fuller for longer. As well as eating healthily, regular exercise may help reduce your risk of getting serious health conditions. It’s also important for your overall health and wellbeing.


Some people skip breakfast because they think it’ll help them lose weight. But, a healthy breakfast high in fiber and low in fat, sugar, and salt can form part of a balanced diet. In the end, helping you get the nutrients you need for good health.

The key to a healthy diet is to eat the right amount of calories for how active you are so you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink more than your body needs, you’ll put on weight because the energy you do not use is stored as fat. And if you eat and drink too little, you’ll lose weight.

By the same token, you should also eat a wide range of foods to make sure you’re getting a balanced diet and your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs. It’s recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). While at the same time, women should have around 2,000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules).
