Hunger Games: Your summer diet plan

Fad diets are one extra stress you don’t need in your life, eat well with the correct food and keep active.

The gyms and pavements are getting busy around town with people getting their body ready for summer! Despite what trainers say, getting your body summer ready is not easy!

There are a few key rules that you need to follow –

1. Eat more fruit, vegetables and lean meat
You can enjoy all fruit in moderation, blueberries and grapefruit are a wonderful options. Devour leafy greens and cruciferous vegetables  including broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and brussels sprouts.

2. Stop eating dense carbohydrates
We all know we need to avoid these! Sugary drinks, fruit juices, white bread, pastries, sweets, French fries and potato chips.

3. Drink three litres of water a day
Drink a glass of water every two hours. Women should be drinking 11 glasses and men 15 glasses of water a day. If you don’t enjoying drinking plain water you can always add fresh fruit to your water or drink herbal tea.

4. No alcohol

5. No junk foods or sweets

6. Eat dinner before 7:30pm
Depending on your bed time, it is imperative you eat at least 3 to 4 hours before you go to bed. Lying down too quickly following a meal can lead to heartburn, acid reflux and indigestion. As the metabolism slows down in the evening, your body must work hard to digest the food that was recently eaten.

This can lead to disrupted sleep and leave you feeling lethargic the next morning. Avoid red meat, junk food, processed foods and opt for whole grains, soups, fruit and vegetables.

7. Get at least 7 to 8 hours sleep
Sleep is a period where a lot of important processing, restoration and strengthening occurs.

Unfortunately, you can’t make up for lost sleep. The best thing for your body is a healthy, consistent routine that meets your sleep needs (almost) every night!

8. Workout five days a week
