Skipping Meals

Did you know that eating infrequent meals can lead to a variety of health-related problems. If you skip meals or eat your meals in a pattern that fails to satisfy your energy requirements, you could end up with higher body fat levels and less lean muscle mass (Benardot, 2018).

Staying Hydrated

Did you know that exercise performance can be impaired when you are dehydrated by as little as 2% of your body weight (Murray, 2007)? The British Dietetic Association (BDA) recommends adults drink around 2 litres of water per day.


Did you know, studies have shown that when exercising for up to an hour or more, combining carbohydrates with protein during and after exercise, can increase your exercise performance and speed up your recovery (Jager et al, 2017)?


Did you know that alcohol has a number of links to weight gain? It's packed with sugar, carbs and empty calories. Not to mention, you are more than likely going to make poor food choices when under the influence of alcohol!

Skipping Breakfast

Did you know that studies have shown that people who eat breakfast, tend to have healthier lifestyles? The NHS state that "a healthy breakfast high in fiber and low in fat, sugar and salt can form part of a balanced diet, and can help you get the nutrients you need for good health". Try eating porridge with banana or apple, or eggs on wholemeal toast. Quick, easy and tastes delicious.
