This Week's STARS....
Small and simple modifications to your diet may be required to maximise fat loss and balance your hormones. I have put together easy to prepare, delicious, healthy hormone balancing recipes, that when used in conjunction with my "Balanced Life" series of workouts, will produce the weight loss and strengthening results that you deserve. Here are 4 healthy dietary options for this week if weight loss is your aim.
A great source of protein and oh so versatile, the humble egg can be added on the side or be the star of the show.
2. LEAFY GREENS
High in fibre and add volume to meals to fill you up. They contain important vitamins, antioxidants and minerals including calcium which aids fat burning and is essential for maintaining bone density.
Healthy and versatile with few calories; salmon is a great source of protein, healthy fats (Omega 3 fatty acids) and many important nutrients and minerals such as selenium, potassium, vitamin B12 and Iodine.
Fatty acids contained in salmon and other oily fish such as mackerel, trout, sardines and herring, help to reduce inflammation.
Iodine is essential for the production of Thyroid hormones. These hormones control the metabolism (the rate at which you burn fat), and are also essential for proper bone and brain development during pregnancy and infancy. Getting enough iodine is therefore important for everyone.
4. CRUCIFEROUS VEG
Broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussel Sprouts are high in fibre and therefore excellent for the digestive system and are a great way to bulk out a meal to be more filling without significant additional calories.
