After analysing one of our ‘healthy eating food diaries’, we wanted to know more. Many of us will fall into the health kick trap; eating well and exercising all week, only to give in to temptation on Friday night. We associate this with failure and can often knock our motivation and confidence. But we promote a happy, balanced lifestyle and are keen to learn what swaps can be made to keep our weekend eats nutritious, balanced and enjoyable.
We asked registered nutritionist and Nutritionist Resource member, Dr Lisa Gatenby to take a look at one of our weekend food diaries.
NR team member, Kat sent her two-day food diary to Lisa, recording her meals, snacks, drinks and activity levels, as well as stating her age, weight and height. While this is only a small snippet of the week, Lisa took these factors into consideration when conducting the analysis.
