Healthy Eating

January 3, 2017

 

What does ‘healthy eating’ actually mean? To begin with, it’s important to understand that healthy eating is different from dieting. It doesn’t aim to reduce a significant amount of weight in a short space of time, instead it aims to make you feel great, energised and above all, healthier.

 

Healthy eating incorporates three main ideas:

 

  • eating a balanced diet

  • having a healthy attitude towards food

  • understanding the environmental impact of your diet.

 

Fruit and vegetables are a vital source of vitamins and minerals and should make up just over a third of the food we eat each day.

It's advised that we eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and vegetables every day.

 

 

According to the NHS, you should aim for starchy foods to make up 30% of your meals. Starchy foods include pasta, potatoes, bread and cereal. Whole grain varieties of starchy foods offer more fibre and can help you feel fuller for longer. The fibre in whole grains also helps feed the health-promoting bacteria in your gut and may help prevent constipation and bloating. Whole grains also benefit from having more vitamins and minerals in them which are vital for energy production and overall good health.
