Healthy Eating

EATING A BALANCED DIET WILL HELP SUPPORT YOUR PERSONAL FITNESS GOAL.

A BALANCED DIET

Eating a balanced diet will help support your personal fitness goal. Approximately 60% of your diet should come in the form of carbohydrates, 20% from good sources of protein and the rest from essential fats.

COMPLEX CARBOHYDRATES

Complex Carbohydrates release their energy slowly and prevent lulls in energy and can help prevent unnecessary snacking.

Examples include:

  • wholegrain cereals
  • rice
  • pasta
  • cous cous
  • pulses
  • vegetables
  • fruits

GOOD QUALITY PROTEIN

Good quality protein will help repair the body from daily wear and tear, and to repair any muscle damage caused through exercise.

Examples include:

  • vegetables
  • pulses (beans, lentils)
  • meat (aim for white meats like turkey, chicken and fish)
  • soya products such as tofu

ESSENTIAL FATS

Essential Fats come in the form of the omega oils within oily fish like sardines and mackerel. They still need to be eaten in moderation, as they are high in energy (calories).

Other examples include:

  • seeds
  • nuts
  • oils such as olive and sunflower
