An Easy Way to Kick-Start Your Healthy Eating Plan After Easter
Lindt, Cadbury, Haigh’s, The Carob Kitchen—just some of the names that featured heavily in our weekend menu. If you also overindulged, and made promises to make good come this week, we’re here to help you follow through. It can feel a little ‘too hard basket’ to put down the chocolate, however, nutritionist Fiona Tuck told The Huffington Post Australia that getting back into the swing of things is actually not as daunting as it seems.
To help you jump off the hot cross bun train, the simple (and scrumptious) task of eating more fibre-rich foods will actually help keep you feel fuller for longer, in turn reducing your cravings for those “sometimes foods”. Adding fibre-rich foods to your diet is the easiest way to reduce your risk of overeating. "Include plenty of fresh green vegetables and fibre-rich foods such as fruits, veggies, and whole grains, and avoid heavy, rich foods for a few days, such as cream, butter, fatty red meat and alcohol," Tuck said. You can kiss those Creme Eggs goodbye.
