Junk food contains very little nutritional value. Instead it contains a high amount of fats and sugars which raise insulin levels and promote fat storage within your body. If you ditch the following from your diet you will definitely be heading in the right direction.
Load up on veg
The most filling foods are fruit and veg as they have a high volume per calorie. Not only does the water and fibre content in fruit and veg add bulk to food they are also packed with vitamins and minerals to keep you healthy. By replacing your junk food intake with fruit and veg will make a massive difference to your body and your energy levels.
Pack in the protein
Protein keeps you fuller for longer, plus your body uses more calories to digest it than carbs or fat. Aim to have a portion of protein with each meal. Not only will this keep you feeling satisfied but also helps you to maintain and build muscle.
Tickle your taste buds
Once you feel confident in eating healthily and exercising make sure that you reward yourself for all your hard work. Many people find that a day off from healthy eating satisfies the cravings. By allowing yourself the occasional bar of chocolate or pizza you will stop thinking of it as forbidden food and avoid messy blowouts that undoes your hard work.
