Eating habits and healthy diet

Eating habits and healthy diet

I’m often praised by friends and family for how healthy my diet is and told that I must be very disciplined. Yes, I like to eat healthily but it’s not a matter of draconian discipline or depravation. I’ve been there, done that, got the screwed up metabolism and now I’ve moved on. Healthy eating is all about balance – most nutritionists recommend an 80/20 rule. 80% good, 20% naughty. I’d say mine is nearer 90/10 purely because healthy foods just happen to be my favourite foods, but a few glasses of wine or some pick and mix at the cinema both have well deserved places in my diet!

Omega 3s have been shown to improve heart rate, cut the risk of blood clots, decrease plaque in arteries, reduce inflammation, lower blood pressure and boost good cholesterol (HDL).

Coffee & Nutrition Facts

cafemain

A common question that comes up a lot for every nutritionist is “can I still drink coffee?” or sometimes it can be a statement “Don’t tell me to give up coffee, because I won’t!”.

So what is the answer when it comes to your cappuccino, latte, macchiato, flat white, espresso etc? My standard answer is pretty much in line with my whole approach to health: everything in moderation.

It’s important to have balance in our lives and our diets and if coffee makes you happy I’d be reluctant to say you can never have it again. Having said that, there may be cases where I suggest that people do cut it out because it is making their condition worse, for example women suffering menopausal hot flushes, or someone with anxiety or migraines.
