Shifts can bear some problems to eating at a set routine, a routine for eating through the usual shift patterns of early (6am-2pm) and late (2pm-10pm) can quite easily be adhered to, but for the nights (10pm-6am) this is a different story, its very easy to snack on sweets (comfort eating) during the night shifts, therefore you will need plenty of will power.
Tip 2. Reduced fat
You can go on reduced fat versions of foods; salad dressings, dairy products, and spreads, play caution though as some can still be high in fat, use them sparingly, do not paste it on like cement as this will be of no benefit what so ever.
Tip 3. Walking off weight
Did you know that 60-90 minutes of walking at a moderate pace is equivalent to about 10,000 steps, each day this can be done without having to go on a power hike? If your maths and memory don’t feel up to it then use a pedometer to help count the steps. Throughout the day break up you’re walking around your living and/or working environment.
Tip 4. Healthy snack Pack
If you like snacking then instead of chocolate or crisps choose a healthy option, fresh fruit, vegetables sticks, and low calorie yogurts, the fruit and vegetables can be snacked on all you like so go ahead make your day a healthy snacking day.
Tip 5. What’s in a label
This is one of the mighty confusing parts to any food, so be careful of what the food labels claim. When shopping and preparing food the main contents to check on those food labels are the fat and sugar, keep them low or even nothing where possible.
Tip 6. Portions caution
Except vegetables, don’t throw loads of food onto your plate. If the urge is such greatness for second helpings go grape a handful of grapes instead. Before having second helpings think twice.
Tip 7. Get on your feet
In any environment your sitting time can be broken up into two, five, or ten minutes each hour, while stood up and especially moving your body is burning calories and helping your posture. Aim to be on your feet ten minutes out of every hour.
Tip 8. Your drinks habit
If you don’t like the taste of water straight from the tap then water filters for the fridge doors are so easy to use and look after, so choose water or sugar-free squashes. Fruit juice unsweetened is high in natural sugar so limit it to one 150ml glass per day, this is also very close to one of your recommended 5-day. Alcohol is absolute will power, we all know its high in calories and a depressant.
Tip 9. Eating calmly and slower
Oh do we like to rush our meals, take your time and slow down. Avoid eating on the go and certainly while watching TV. Where time permits sit down and try use eating as a positive event at a table if possible.
