Summer Slim Down Top Tips

Welcome to our Summer Slim Down Top Tips article!

  • Have a minimum of 2 portions of vegetables or fruit with EVERY MEAL.
  • Aim for 3 to 4 meals per day depending on calories required
  • Have a protein portion at EVERY meal, yes that includes breakfast.
  • Limit yourself to 1 portion of carbohydrate per day. Aim to have this after training or for your evening meal.
  • Have a thumb size fat portion in every meal except the meal with carbohydrate
  • Water – aim to drink at least 3 litres of water a day. Start the day well with a pint of water and a squeeze of lime or lemon in.
  • Allow yourself one bad day per week, this will be more sustainable, still record on my fitness pal. A good rule to adhere to is 80/20
  • Record your food accurately, use scales to measure portion sizes and add all drinks. If you go off track (which will happen) keep recording, it’s important to see the weekly calories consumed so we know if calories need to be adjusted.
  • Forward plan your weekly meals, it’s easier to stay on track when we have the right food in and prepped.
  • Sleep! Aim for a minimum of 7/8 hours and include a good bedtime routine e.g. read a book, meditate, no blue light devices, make your bedroom as dark as possible
