Be inspired to up your ‘nourishing’ game with Lorna Jane

Ditch Dieting & Write Your Own Rules We inherently know what our bodies need, we just need to honour ourselves and create our own rules based on how we want to live our lives. Food is your friend so choose foods that make you feel amazing and complement your lifestyle. Chew Chew Chew I know it can be difficult at times, but make it a rule to sit down and savour your food whenever possible. If you can, chew each mouthful 15 ? 20 times to improve digestion, increase nutritional uptake and savour and enjoy your delicious meal. Count Macros not Calories Macros (or macronutrients) are the proteins, fats and carbohydrates that make up the food we eat. So when I say ‘count them’ it’s more about being aware – if you had a high-carb breakfast of oats and fruit in the morning, then be sure to get some proteins and fats into your meals for the rest of the day – simple really! Why Water We know you’re sick of hearing the 2 litre a day thing! But the truth is, water makes you gorgeous! It moisturises and hydrates your skin, is essential for maintaining your skin’s elasticity, keeps your digestion and metabolism working properly and would have to be the best and purest weight-loss tool on the planet – so drink up! Attack Snacking Eating a little less on a more regular basis (every 3-4 hours) boosts your metabolism, keeps you focused, puts your body into fat-burning mode and helps keep those pesky sugar cravings at bay. Miss it? Then Swap It So you feel like you’re missing out on all the fun by deciding to eat well! Why not find healthy alternatives for all of your unhealthy cravings and learn to look forward to guilt-free treats that nourish your body? Some of my favourites are: dates instead of candy, blended frozen banana instead of ice-cream and baked sweet potato chips instead of fries. (See page 76 for our amazing MNB suggestions).
