Start The Day Off Right

What you eat throughout the day can be dependant on how you start off.

I try to eat healthy and have something filling. This often helps me to make better food choices later on. Over Christmas and being out of my normal routine, I found I was eating breakfast at all different times of the day and not always having something nutritious and filling.

Now back into normal routine I am back to eating either porridge oats with coconut milk, poached eggs on toast (usually Spelt or wholemeal bread) or omelettes with chopped mushrooms and tomatoes.

Occasionally I will have mixed fruit (blueberries, kiwi and banana) with Greek or Natural live yogurt.

By having a good breakfast it helps to keep me fuller for longer. I also feel more inclined to eat healthier foods during the day.

Today for example I have had fruit and live yogurt for my breakfast - the fruit for an added vitamin boost and yogurt to give my 'friendly' gut bacteria a helping hand. At lunch time I made a chicken and vegetable stew and ate 2 dishes of it (it was rather yummy).

As I write this I am still feeling full and will have something a bit lighter for my evening meal, although I have yet to decide what.

For some people, eating 5 or 6 small meals during the day works for them. Keeps their metabolism ticking over and helps to stop them from feeling hungry. However, I find that having 3 meals a day, providing they are nutritious and no snacking in between, helps me to lose weight.

It's all about finding an eating plan that works for YOU.
