Food swaps, recipes and ideas:
One of the hardest things to do is to make permanent changes to your diet, getting rid of all those unhealthy sugary snacks, cakes, puddings and calorie filled meal choices and opting for healthier ingredients. You yearn for that biscuit with your morning cup of tea, or that doughnut for an afternoon snack.
So don't try to do it all in one go. THINK! What would be the easiest changes to make first? Maybe it could be smaller portion sizes, or finding healthier alternatives such as brown wholegrain bread instead of that white plastic stuff. Could you swap in items of fruit instead of biscuits?
Once you start making healthy swaps you'll be surprised at how a) motivating it is, b) how virtuous you feel and c) - if you make the right choices for you - how you'd forgottten how good healthy food can taste.
Once you've managed to eliminate sugary foods from your diet, you may be surprised to find that sweets taste positively sickly.
If you can cut down on your salt intake, you'll eventually realise that you don't LIKE salty foods any more.
