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 (calorie surplus), you'll put on weight because the energy you do not use is stored as fat. If you eat and drink too little (calorie deficit) you'll lose weight.
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.
Here are some key tips for being healthier
1. Eat lots of fruit and veg
It's recommended that you eat at least 5 portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day.
2. Eat more fish
Aim to eat at least 2 portions of fish a week, including at least 1 portion of oily fish. Oily fish are high in omega-3 fats, which may help prevent heart disease.
3. Get active and maintain a healthy weight
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. Strength training is one of the best ways to tone up, get stronger, get fitter and feel better.
4. Drink plenty of water
You need to drink plenty of fluids to stop you getting dehydrated. The government recommends drinking 6 to 8 glasses every day. This is in addition to the fluid you get from the food you eat. Also, remember to drink more water and fluids during warmer periods.
5. Reduce stress
The more stress we are under, the more we tend to eat and the less we tend to sleep. Separate out the stresses you can manage, versus what’s outside your control. Take action on what is in your control and take steps to reduce them. Remember the old saying “Don’t sweat the small stuff”!!
