Managing your weight during lockdown
My 5 top tips for weight loss
Maintaining a healthy body weight can be hard when staying at home. Here are some top tips to help.
- Reduce the amount of high sugar and/or high fat snacks in your house. If you have them in the house it is often hard to stop yourself from eating them. Instead, make healthy snacks easily accessible and visible. For example, use a fruit bowl or put healthy snacks at the front of the fridge or cupboard.
- Before you eat, ask yourself if you are actually hungry or are you in fact eating because you are bored, stressed or worried. If you are bored, stressed or worried, try to do an activity to reduce these feelings. For example try a mindfulness activity, do some exercise or chat to a friend.
- Going by the lack of baking ingredients in the shops, the amount of baking at home has increased! But what to do with all those tasty bakes? If you love to bake, try to find some healthier bakes (like my banana oat bites) or perhaps set your new found culinary skills on to some healthy savoury dishes instead.
- Consider portion sizes – it is easy to get into a habit of eating too much. Reassess what the right portion size for you is by using the information on pack or using an evidence-based portion size guide. Get in touch so I can point you in the right direction.
- As well as getting outside for some exercise, do some exercise in your home too. See how many times you can go up and down your stairs, take part in an exercise session online or put together your own fitness routine. Gardening and cleaning the house can also count!
