Easter has been and gone and I’ve managed to get rid of the evidence of eating chocolate! Does this sound familiar to you? We all have our own way of keeping on track as far as healthy eating (or not) goes.Our rules we adhere to that give us a feeling of being in control of what and when to eat. But, how about if we didn’t need the rules? What if we just went back to enjoying food, just as toddlers enjoy and experience new tastes, textures and know when they are full up. That’s what I’m working on now. A whole new course that will teach you why you eat like you do and have the attitude you do towards food and then, more importantly, how to achieve the eating habits you desire and stay on track for the rest of your life. This course will look at, inner dialogue, behavioural change, nutrition advice, the psychology behind how we eat today, some practical tips and techniques that will give you the confidence to regain control of what you eat, how much you eat, when you eat…….. and choices you make
You can download a self hypnosis MP3 to start you on the right track today or let me know if you’re interested in a course in the near future.

A few statistics:

The average intake of sodium is on a downward trend but was still 82 per cent above the recommended maximum Reference Nutrient Intake of 2.4 grams per day in 2012

Rural areas tended to purchase larger quantities of food and drink than urban areas, therefore the energy and nutrient intakes derived from these purchases was greater in rural areas.

Household purchases of fresh and processed vegetables (excluding potatoes) have generally been declining since 2005, with a 6.1 per cent fall from 1,156g to 1,086g average weekly consumption per person. This has mainly been due to a decrease in purchases of fresh vegetables, which account for roughly 70 per cent of all vegetable purchases.
