This is our go to nutrition advice for the majority of people. If you aren’t yet doing this then that’s your answer if you’re concerned with what you’re consuming. But what exactly do we mean when we say those three key points? 1. Eat REAL FOOD - If it came from the ground or had eyes, it’s real food. Avoid things that are processed. If you’re unsure if it’s processed or not, basically everything in the aisles at your local supermarket is processed. When you shop, you should walk in, take an immediate left or right - there you’ll find the produce section - this is where the vast majority of your shopping should take place. Real food has a shorter expiration date. Processed foods can sit in the pantry (or fridge) for weeks and weeks. Packaging is another give away. If you’re constantly opening packets to eat your food - that’s not real food. 2. Eat MOSTLY PLANTS - When you look down at your plate, majority of what’s on it should be plants - vegetables and/or salad. These foods are high in nutrients and low in calories so you can load up on them. We will often encourage our members to eat as many veggies and salad based foods as they can. This way they feel full without loading up on calories. 3. Eat NOT TOO MUCH - Three meals a day. No need to snack. No need to go back for seconds. We are pretty certain that no one is going to starve by eating three meals a day. In terms of the size of those meals - there should be roughly a palm size piece of protein (of choice - chicken, beef, salmon, tofu) and the rest of the regular sized dinner plate filled with vegetables (the more colour the better). As always, individual preferences and situations will alter nutritional habits but we feel this is foundational advice.
