4 tips for healthy weight management
Here are 4 tips from Nutrition Scientist Dr Federica on how to understand your cravings and choose food to support healthy weight management.
1. Start the day with a high protein breakfast. Simply swapping your morning muesli and juice for a savoury protein rich breakfast (like a spinach omelette on rye toast) can positively impact your metabolism for the whole day. Or try adding Indi Tone to your morning routine for a boost of protein and polyphenols.
2. Eat lots of fibre with every meal.
Fibre helps to slow the absorption of sugars from food and also feeds your friendly gut microbes. Try Indi Body to boost your fibre intake. It’s delicious, I take most days to add 5.4g of fibre to my diet from 12 plant sources.
3. Being active every day helps your metabolism.
Evidence shows that how active you were yesterday impacts your energy and metabolism today. Too little or too much can negatively impact your overall balance, so it’s about daily movement more than a few days at the gym.
4. Don't underestimate the importance of sleep. Sleep directly impacts our food choices the next day. If you’re tired, you are more likely to eat high-sugar foods to keep you going. The link between poor sleep quality, hunger and metabolic health is the topic of many recent scientific studies.
If you need a helping hand, Indi Rest is a natural sleep aid to help you unwind and fall into a deep and restful sleep.
