This is an example day of a typical day!
It took me a long time to understand the concept of balance, and remove restriction. I like to prioritise nutrient dense foods, but still enjoy treats alongside. No food group is excluded.
I need around 1800 calories per day as my maintenance. I try and exercise anywhere between 3-5 times a week and do a mix of quick weight-training sessions and walks.
I like to ensure that I have a good quality fat and protein source with most meals or snacks. I prefer to include my healthy alternative recipes because they are lower calorie than tradition varieties but are also made with whole-grain ingredients that are high in fibre and refined sugar free so my blood sugar levels aren’t spiked like traditional varieties cause.
