Eat yourself healthy with these 3 easy tips

3 top tips for healthy eating

Bin the diet, ignore the scales and forget everything you've been told about healthy eating: a balanced approach to food is all about being kind to yourself, understanding your body and of course enjoying a little indulgence here and there.

Our resident healthy eating guru Tegan Pryce runs nutrition masterclasses online and at St Michaels, and here she explains 3 quick insider tips to healthy eating.

Fresh. Honest. Local.

The St Michaels food experience is all about balance. Get nourished and feast a little too: discover the fresh, honest and local food ethos that drives St Michaels, dine in our ocean-facing Brasserie on the Bay and relax with lighter Mediterranean plates in the Garden Kitchen

Know how to fill your plate
1 Know how to fill your plate

When people decide to go on a diet, they often make the mistake of massively under-eating and cutting out all of their favourite foods, which just ends up making you so hungry that you eventually break your diet for a binge. Making sure you are eating enough when you’re trying to lose weight is extremely important. When choosing your meals, make sure you have a good-sized portion of protein, some healthy fats, and some starchy carbohydrates such as rice, potatoes, grains etc. Fill the rest of your plate up with as many vegetables as you want. Vegetables are high in fibre, which keeps you feeling fuller for longer, and low in calories meaning you can have lots of them without breaking your deficit.

Hungry, or just thirsty?
2 Hungry, or just thirsty?

We often mistake thirst for hunger. Next time you think you need a snack, it might just be that you’re dehydrated. When you’re feeling snacky, first drink a full glass of water. Wait 20mins, and if you’re still hungry, have a snack. But you might have just been thirsty.

Add to your diet
3 Add to your diet

The first thing a lot of people do when they want to lose weight is to remove all ‘unhealthy’ things from their diets. A lot of people will also try and remove or cut down on carbohydrates. Removing all of your favourite foods from your diet will just make it unachievable and unsustainable. Don’t focus on removing everything, instead try to add good foods to your diet. Add extra fruit, vegetables, more protein etc. If you are still hungry, or still craving treats after you have eaten a plate of good foods, then have the treat that you wanted. But you’ll start to find that you are already full and satisfied, and the craving for the sweet treat has gone. This will help to build better, healthier habits as well, instead of just restricting yourself, which will make you crave treats even more.
