When you embark on a weight loss plan, you might feel it's going to be restrictive and complex – but it doesn't have to be the case. Tracking what you eat and counting calories is a simple way to start to change your diet. Nutracheck is about eating smarter, not necessarily less. Make good food choices to get quality calories in your diet, and follow the tips below to help you lose weight healthily and happily, without depriving yourself of food you enjoy!
Stop classing foods as good or bad – it's just down to how much you eat and how often.
Never cut out whole food groups – your body needs them all.
Eat smarter not less – fill up on low energy density foods like fruit and veg.
Find a physical activity you enjoy – exercise should be fun.
Drink plenty of fluids – aim for 8x 250ml glasses of water a day.
Learn to 'offset' – have what you enjoy but cut back somewhere else.
