My Top 5 Tips for Better Health

If you put in place these five 'basics', I am sure you will see huge improvements in your health. It may take time - how long depends on how long you've not been doing them. Go for it!

1.  Increase water

We need to drink 1.5 to 2 litres per day (6-8 glasses). Herbal teas count; other teas and coffee don't. If you're dehydrated, nothing in your body works well!

2.  Reduce carbs

Eat a savoury breakfast. Cut out soft drinks and juices. Base your meals around meat, fish, eggs and vegetables. Fruit is dessert. Bread, pasta & pizza are high in calories and low in nutrition.

3.  Eat healthy fats

Eat some oily fish, avocados, free range eggs, nuts, seeds, olive oil and/or butter every day. Avoid heated seed oils!

4.  Get enough protein

Our bodies are made of protein, fats and water. Eat meat, fish and/or eggs every day. They are 'complete proteins'. Beans, lentils, nuts and seeds are good sources but 'incomplete'.

If you're over 50 and/or have digestive issues, drink a tablespoon of cider vinegar before each meal.

5.  Move your body

Just do it! Even a five minute walk after lunch or dinner is a step in the right direction. 

Do something fun like dancing or walking with friends. 

For massive health benefits, do resistance training (see a physio or exercise specialist to get started).
