Small Frequent Meals
Reduced meal portions, eating frequently throughout the day, help you prevent energy slumps and unhealthy snack cravings.
Fruits, Vegetables and small servings of protein – such as nuts, yoghurt or low-fat cheese during mid-morning and mid-afternoon – help you to avoid overeating at lunch or dinner time.
Ensure a regular intake of fluids to stay properly hydrated.
Fluid needs can vary depending on a person’s body size, the environment (you need more fluid when it’s hot or humid) and how active you are since a lot of fluid is lost through perspiration. The most important fluid is water; your body needs water to function properly. Water helps to regulate your body temperature. It transports nutrients to body cells. Consuming 8 glasses of water per day helps you stay healthy.
Your body needs nutrients to function properly or your health will suffer. Getting the right amount of nutrients is called Balanced Nutrition. The nutrients known to be essential for human beings are proteins, carbohydrates, fats, oils, minerals, vitamins and water.
Protein builds and maintains body tissues, provides a source of energy and can enhance metabolism. Eat two to three servings, from different sources, every day. It is found in animal sources like meat, fish, poultry, eggs and dairy products’ it’s found in plant foods like beans, lentils and soybeans, which unlike animal proteins, have no cholesterol and less fat. Power up and slim down while you help maintain lean muscle mass with Personalised Herbalife Protein Powder. Also try Herbalife Formula 1 Nutritional Shake to meet your daily protein portion with all the Herbalife nutrition elements that your body needs.
Carbohydrates are a major source of fuel for the body that is critical for daily functioning, including exercise. Healthy carbs include fruits, vegetables, wholegrains (wholegrain bread, pastas, cereals and brown rice) Colourful fruits and vegetables also supply needed antioxidants and phytonutrients. Bad carbs include sweets and sugars because they have no fibre, vitamins or minerals. It is important to incorporate healthy carbs into your diet. This can be done by filling half your plate with salads and vegetables. Have fruits and veggies for a snack and using wholegrain bread for sandwiches.
Healthy fats have several functions within our daily diets. It helps to maintain our brains and nervous system, helps absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, adds flavour to foods, and keeps our eyes, skin, bones and nails healthy. Healthy fats come from fish and fish oil, olive oil, nuts and avocado. To keep fat intake down you should avoid fried foods, instead bake, roast, grill or steam your food. Go easy on sauces, gravies, salad dressing and butter. Try low fat or non-fat version of foods. Incorporate healthy fats into your diet by having fish a few times a week, add a handful of nuts or some avocado to a salad and use olive oil sparingly in cooking. Herbalifeline is an excellent way to supplement your daily intake of Omega-3 fatty acids.
Fibre is essential for healthy digestion and for keeping the digestive system in balance. It helps to move foods through the digestive tract and it is found in vegetables, fruits, beans, oats, wholegrain rice and pasta, whole wheat bread, nuts and seeds. Help support a healthy bowel function with Active Fibre Complex.
Vitamins and Minerals
Vitamins and minerals support healthy weight management, overall good health and vitality. They are essential for the body’s normal growth and development. Even minor deficiencies may cause permanent damage. Stress, poor diet and exposure to pollutants often make it important to supplement your diet with the proper vitamins and minerals.
Vitamins help us get energy from food and enable growth and repair of skin, bone and muscle. There are 13 vitamins that our bodies cannot produce, we need to eat them. The 4 fat-soluble vitamins that can be stored for longer periods of time in the body are A, D, E and K. The 9 water soluble vitamins that cannot be stored in the body and deplete quickly are B-vitamins and Vitamin C.
