  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g spinach
  • 4 medium eggs
  • A handful of basil, to garnish

8 Practical Tips for Healthy Eating

Written by

These eight practical tips cover the basics of healthy eating, and can help you make healthier choices.

The key to a healthy diet is to:

  • Eat the right amount of calories for how active you are, so that you balance the energy you consume with the energy you use. If you eat or drink too much, you'll put on weight. If you eat and drink too little, you'll lose weight. 
  • Eat a wide range of foods to ensure that you're getting a balanced diet and that your body is receiving all the nutrients it needs.

It is recommended that men have around 2,500 calories a day (10,500 kilojoules). Women should have around 2,000 calories a day (8,400 kilojoules). Most adults are eating more calories than they need and should eat fewer calories. 1

1. Base your meals on starchy carbohydrates

Starchy carbohydrates should make up just overone-thirdd of the food you eat. They include potatoes, bread, rice, pasta and cereals.

Choose wholegrain varieties (or eat potatoes with their skins on) when you can: they contain more fibre, and can help you feel full for longer.

Most of us should eat more starchy foods: try to include at least one starchy food with each main meal. Some people think starchy foods are fattening, but gram for gram the carbohydrate they contain provides fewer than half the calories of fat.

Keep an eye on the fats you add when you're cooking or serving these types of foods because that's what increases the calorie content, for example oil on chips, butter on bread and creamy sauces on pasta.

2. Eat lots of fruit and veg

It's recommended that we eat at least five portions of a variety of fruit and veg every day. It's easier than it sounds.

Why not chop a banana over your breakfast cereal, or swap your usual mid-morning snack for a piece of fresh fruit?

Unsweetened 100% fruit juice, vegetable juice and smoothies can only ever count as a maximum of one portion of your 5 A DAY. For example, if you have two glasses of fruit juice and a smoothie in one day, that still only counts as one portion. 

3. Eat more fish – including a portion of oily fish

Fish is a good source of protein and contains many vitamins and minerals. Aim to eat at least two portions of fish a week, including at least one portion of oily fish. Oily fish contains omega-3 fats, which may help to prevent heart disease. 

Oily fish include:

  • salmon
  • mackerel
  • trout
  • herring
  • fresh tuna
  • sardines
  • pilchards.

Non-oily fish include:

  • haddock
  • plaice
  • coley
  • cod
  • canned tuna
  • skate
  • hake

If you regularly eat a lot of fish, try to choose as wide a variety as possible.

You can choose from fresh, frozen and canned: but remember that canned and smoked fish can be high in salt.

4. Cut down on saturated fat and sugar

Saturated fat in our diet

We all need some fat in our diet, but it's important to pay attention to the amount and type of fat we're eating. There are two main types of fat: saturated and unsaturated. Too much saturated fat can increase the amount of cholesterol in the blood, which increases your risk of developing heart disease.

The average man should have no more than 30g saturated fat a day. The average woman should have no more than 20g saturated fat a day, and children should have less than adults.

Saturated fat is found in many foods, such as:

  • hard cheese
  • cakes
  • biscuits
  • sausages
  • cream
  • butter
  • lard
  • pies.

Try to cut down on your saturated fat intake, and choose foods that contain unsaturated fats instead, such as vegetable oils, oily fish and avocados.

For a healthier choice, use just a small amount of vegetable oil or reduced-fat spread instead of butter, lard or ghee. When you're having meat, choose lean cuts and cut off any visible fat. 

Sugar in our diet

Regularly consuming foods and drinks high in sugar increases your risk of obesity and tooth decay.

Sugary foods and drinks, including alcoholic drinks, are often high in energy (measured in kilojoules or calories), and if eaten too often, can contribute to weight gain. They can also cause tooth decay, especially if eaten between meals.

Many packaged foods and drinks contain surprisingly high amounts of free sugars. Free sugars are any sugars added to foods or drinks, or found naturally in honey, syrups and unsweetened fruit juices.

Cut down on:

  • sugary fizzy drinks
  • alcoholic drinks
  • sugary breakfast cereals
  • cakes
  • biscuits
  • pastries

These foods contain added sugars: this is the kind of sugar we should be cutting down on, rather than sugars that are found in things such as fruit and milk.

Food labels can help: use them to check how much sugar foods contain. More than 22.5g of total sugars per 100g means that the food is high in sugar, while 5g of total sugars or less per 100g means that the food is low in sugar.

Get tips on cutting down sugar in your diet.

5. Eat less salt – no more than 6g a day for adults

Eating too much salt can raise your blood pressure. People with high blood pressure are more likely to develop heart disease or have a stroke.

Even if you don’t add salt to your food, you may still be eating too much. About three-quarters of the salt we eat is already in the food we buy, such as breakfast cereals, soups, breads and sauces.

Use food labels to help you cut down. More than 1.5g of salt per 100g means the food is high in salt. Adults and children over 11 should eat no more than 6g of salt (about a teaspoonful) a day. Younger children should have even less.

Get tips on cutting down on salt in your diet. 

6. Get active and be a healthy weight

Eating a healthy, balanced diet plays an essential role in maintaining a healthy weight, which is an important part of overall good health.

Being overweight or obese can lead to health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, certain cancers, heart disease and stroke. Being underweight could also affect your health.

Check whether you're a healthy weight by using our Healthy weight calculator.

Most adults need to lose weight, and need to eat fewer calories to do this. If you're trying to lose weight, aim to eat less and be more active. Eating a healthy, balanced diet will help: aim to cut down on foods that are high in saturated fat and sugar, and eat plenty of fruit and vegetables.

Don't forget that alcohol is also high in calories, so cutting down can help you to control your weight. 

Physical activity can help you to maintain weight loss or be a healthy weight. Being active doesn't have to mean hours at the gym: you can find ways to fit more activity into your daily life. For example, try getting off the bus one stop early on the way home from work, and walking.

Being physically active may help reduce the risk of heart disease, stroke and type 2 diabetes. For more ideas, see Get active your way.

After getting active, remember not to reward yourself with a treat that is high in energy. If you feel hungry after activity, choose foods or drinks that are lower in calories, but still filling.

If you're underweight, see our page on underweight adults. If you're worried about your weight, ask your GP or a dietitian for advice.

7. Don't get thirsty

We need to drink plenty of fluids to stop us getting dehydrated – the government recommends 6-8 glasses every day. 

This is in addition to the fluid we get from the food we eat. All non-alcoholic drinks count, but water and lower-fat milk are healthier choices. 

Try to avoid sugary soft and fizzy drinks that are high in added sugars and calories, and are also bad for teeth. 

Even unsweetened fruit juice and smoothies are high in free sugar. Your combined total of drinks from fruit juice, vegetable juice and smoothies should not be more than 150ml a day – which is a small glass.

For example, if you have 150ml of orange juice and 150ml smoothie in one day, you'll have exceeded the recommendation by 150ml.

When the weather is warm, or when we get active, we may need more fluids.

8. Don't skip breakfast

Some people skip breakfast because they think it will help them lose weight. In fact, research shows that people who regularly eat breakfast are less likely to be overweight.

Breakfast has also been shown to have positive effects on children’s mental performance and increase their concentration throughout the morning.

A healthy breakfast is an important part of a balanced diet, and provides some of the vitamins and minerals we need for good health.

A wholegrain, lower-sugar cereal with fruit sliced over the top is a tasty and nutritious breakfast.

Too much sugar?

Written by

Healthy people who consume high levels of sugar are at an increased risk of developing cardiovascular disease.

A ground-breaking study from the University of Surrey found that a subject group of otherwise healthy men had increased levels of fat in their blood and fat stored in their livers after they had consumed a high sugar diet.

The study, which has been published in Clinical Science, looked at two groups of men with either high or low levels of liver fat, and fed them a high or low sugar diet to find out if the amount of liver fat influences the impact of sugar on their cardiovascular health. The low sugar diet contained no more than 140 calories a day worth of sugar -- an amount close to the recommended intake -- while the high sugar diet contained 650 calories worth.

After 12 weeks on the high sugar diet, the men with a high level of liver fat -- a condition known as non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) -- showed changes in their fat metabolism that are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes.

Fat metabolism is the biochemical process by which fats are transported and broken down in the blood, and used by the cells of the body.

The results also revealed that when the group of healthy men with a low level of liver fat consumed a high amount of sugar, their liver fat increased and their fat metabolism became similar to that of the men with NAFLD.

Professor of Nutritional Metabolism, Bruce Griffin, said: "Our findings provide new evidence that consuming high amounts of sugar can alter your fat metabolism in ways that could increase your risk of cardiovascular disease.

"While most adults don't consume the high levels of sugar we used in this study, some children and teenagers may reach these levels of sugar intake by over-consuming fizzy drinks and sweets. This raises concern for the future health of the younger population, especially in view of the alarmingly high prevalence of NAFLD in children and teenagers, and exponential rise of fatal liver disease in adults."

Taking a group fitness class is a great way to stay active, improve your health and immerse yourself in a fun, social environment.

Fitjoy has some of the best group exercise classes so why not try something new?  Here are a few classes that offer a wide range of fitness that suits all ages and fitness levels. 

Arms and Abs Fridays  @ 9:30 am

A class that focuses on your upper body.  All fitness levels can benefit from this class and you can work at your own pace.  A fun class with some serious exercise to get those arms and abs into shape.

HIIT Session - Sunday 7 PM

High-intensity interval training (HIIT) is a type of cardio training in which you alternate short, very high-intensity intervals with longer, slower intervals to recover. This type of training has been used by athletes to improve performance, but it’s also been shown to benefit the average exerciser. HIIT training not only helps performance, it also improves the ability of the muscles to burn fat. All Fitness levels welcome.

Monday Strong - Mondays 6:40 PM 

The non-dance, high-intensity, Bootcamp class is unlike any you’ve tried before. Think high knees, punches, squats, burpees, spider man pushups, and other high-impact moves.  No dancing, no equipment, just STRONG! 

Dance workout - Thursdays  10 AM

A fun and easy to follow energy filled dance workout incorporating a variety of music and styles which is sure to get you moving!! For all levels of fitness.

For more classes check out the schedule.   If you are a regular at Fitjoy, why not consider a monthly membership?  No joining fees, no contracts.  £29.50 per month for over 18 classes a week.

Well done Naomi Donohue- your looking great !

Written by

Wow !! 

Naomi has lost 2 STONE lbs !!! 

We want to congratulation Naomi for all her hard work. She is looking amazing feeling great and her fitness has fed improved since starting Fitjoy. Naomi tells us a little about herself 

"I started back in October with Fitjoy but just dabbled in the odd class here and there. In January I joined with the £40 for 2 months ( such great value for money)! And have signed up monthly now which is still brilliant value for money considering I do 3-4 classes a week.

Since January I have lost 2 stone and 2 lbs
I feel fitter, healthier, stronger and of course can see a massive difference in my clothes which is fab!

The classes I love are Clubbercise, Zumba, Zumba Tone, have recently tried strong by Zumba and kettlebells, I prefer the dance style classes as feels like time goes really quickly and I love learning a new routine. it's great to know there are options like kettle bells/ box fit etc that will take me out of my comfort zone and challenge me more as I still have a way to go with with fitness and weight.

 Everyone at Fitjoy is extremely friendly and welcoming, there is such a mix of ages, shapes, abilities and everyone seems to really support each other. The instructors are amazing! Natalie, Mel, Sophie and Jo are easy to follow, great fun, and always show us how to make it harder/ easier which is fab! I really look forward to the classes in the evenings and hope to try out Jo's dance fit soon too. Its also great to not have to prebook classes, with two young children sometimes it's difficult to plan in advance!

I tell everyone about Fitjoy as over the years I have tried most classes, gym etc and these are by far the most fun and best value for money that I have come across!"

An Interview with...James Temple

Written by

James Temple is a Personal Trainer and an Instructor at Fitjoy  

WHAT’S YOUR ATTITUDE ABOUT BEING FIT AND HEALTHY?

My attitude to being fit and healthy is simple. I believe we all have to be striving to become the best version of ourselves. Everyone's starting point will be different, focus on yourself and small daily improvements and don't spend too long comparing yourself to others.  Fitness and Health are not a choice, it should be a priority. Sooner or later you will have to make time for it.

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO WORK IN FITNESS?

I began work in fitness and health simply because I love helping people and feel I can make a difference. 

TELL US ABOUT THE CLASSES YOU TEACH AND THEIR BENEFITS?

I teach a wide range of classes from HITT which is awesome for an intense, heart rate raising and fat burning workout to kettlebell training which is great for strength, functional strength and mobility! 

WHAT’S YOUR FAVOURITE MANTRA?

My favourite mantra…. Rise and rise again until lambs become lions (never give up)

WHO OR WHAT GIVES YOU INSPIRATION?

People that give me inspiration are people who started with very little and created lasting legacy, and anyone who is positive and trying to better themselves daily. Jay-z, Garrain Jones

Breakfast Smoothie- Herbalife Formula 1 Sport, PDM, Frozen Fruit, avocado, whole milk, Spinach, pumpkin seeds. Mid morning… Eggs, Cottage cheese on oatcakes, protein bar. Lunch…. Salads, homemade stews,

Throughout the day I drink Coffee (good quality) water with aloe and herbal team (Thermo) 

WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY?

What makes me happy…. the sea, animals, beach soccer, family and travel 

 

WHAT’S THE LAST THING YOU WATCHED ON TV?

I don't watch a lot of TV, but one thing I love is Planet Earth One thin

Congratulations Clare Bear

Written by

Wow Clare you look fantastic ! 

We would like to congratulate Clare Bear for all her efforts with her weight loss journey she has now lost over 2 stone.. 

I was introduced to James Temple to start Personal Training, I thought if I don't set myself a goal, I would never do !!

I Have to admit it was a huge step for me as I have not exercised in years. So I was very apprehensive initially , but I have to say it was the best decision I ever made. James made me very welcome and I am loving the sessions. Even my Physio has remarked what a huge difference it has made to my physique and feeling so much better, so much more energy and fitter. Clare has also been working with wellness coach Jennie Bradley using Herbalife to help with the incrediable results ...

 The motivation, encouragement and support from James and Jennie has been amazing. It has truly changed my life completely. Loving this xx ❤️????? ❤️
