What should I be eating?
So many people ask us exactly what they should be eating, however, what you should be eating is different for every individual, there is no, one size fits all when it comes to your nutrition. If you need specific advice, it’s always best you check with your doctor or a qualified nutritionist – don’t trust or believe everything you read online!
When it comes to ‘dieting’, eating whole foods is always best – and please don’t waste your money on gimmick weight loss shakes, or meal replacement tablets as these can damage your health in the long run and won’t give you sustainable results (as much as you’d love to believe they do).
Below is a sample meal plan of approximately 1,500 calories. This is to give you an idea of the amounts of food that you can eat. Please check what your calorie requirements are and make sure that you are eating the correct amount for you (as well as the correct macro-nutrient ratio).
