So being in the entertainment industry it's very important to stay fit and healthy, so here are some great tips to keep your cravings down and eat healthy.
1. EAT BREAKFAST
Breakfast truly is the most important meal of the day. When you sleep your body goes into a mini starvation mode and your metabolism slows down so when you wake up, eating something right away gets your metabolism going again. You even consume less calories later in the day if you eat breakfast! It also helps having something in your stomach so you feel full in the morning and don't overindulge during lunch or dinner.
2. KNOW YOUR PORTION SIZES
It is very important that you aren't over or under eating. Read labels and know how much of what kinds of foods you should be consuming throughout the day. There IS such thing as too much of a good thing, even with healthy foods. It is possible to eat too many fruits and veggies and you WILL gain weight, weird right? So make sure you're not eating too much and especially remember to eat enough. If your portion sizes aren't big enough your body isn't getting enough calories and will start to starve itself. You want to be full of energy and have a strong, healthy body ready to take on the industry!
It is very important to snack throughout the day. Eating small portions of snack type foods during the day keeps your metabolism going and curbs your appetite and any potential cravings you may have. Things like nuts, fruit, veggies, oatmeal bars or even cheese and crackers are great options!
Be sure to drink lots of water throughout the day. You should be getting a minimum of 2L a day so pack your reusable water bottle and take it with you wherever you go. If water gets boring add flavouring like MiO's (my favourite is the Berry Pomegranate). They have no calories, sugar free, no artificial flavouring and taste great! They're also pretty inexpensive and last quite a while!
5. LUNCH: PROTEIN & WHEAT with a TREAT?
Be sure to eat a lot of protein and turn to whole wheat's instead of white flour based breads and pasta's. Have a balanced lunch and eat some meat on whole wheat bread and it's okay to treat yourself at lunch! Have a yummy treat with lunch, don't deprive yourself of sweets entirely, just be sure to keep the portions small.
6. AVOID YOUR TRIGGER FOODS (For Dieters)
We all have them...those foods that we just can't help ourselves with. May it be chocolate, potato chips or french fries...none of it is good for you especially if you can't help yourself from overindulging in them. Get your friends or family to be sure to keep you away from them and help restrain you from giving in. Know yourself and what you crave and stay as far away from it as possible and you'll be fine.
