Natural Eating Top Tips

For many of us who have started (or have always been in) our natural hair journey, we may have spent hours on end reviewing hair regimes, reading hair product reviews and getting to grips with that must-have hairdo. But what many of us fail to realise is that our natural hair journey starts from within, and without a healthy diet we will never achieve our true potential of healthy hair.

I’m not going to preach like I’m a food saint (soooo guilty of washing down junk food with water to make myself feel better lol) but, I do acknowledge the benefits of healthy eating.  There are so many fad diets out there, that many of us feel that if we just choose the right one, those pounds will melt away but really and truly, if we are not ready to adapt our lifestyles in terms of eating right, we will never be able to reap the benefits of a healthy body.

I know as Christmas and New Year approaches, money will be swallowed up in all the festivities and it always seems like eating unhealthily is usually the cheaper option but, with a little thriftiness, this does not have to be the case.

Here’s a few tips to that will help establish long-term changes in your eating plans:-
  1. Make sure you eat breakfast (within the first hour of waking up), as this will help to kick-start your metabolism for the day.
  2. Make sure each meal includes a piece of protein, as protein makes you feel fuller for longer (curbing you urge to want unhealthy snacks).
  3. Limit the carbs (you feel you can’t live without) to a third of your plate – this allows you to enjoy the food you love without going overboard.
  4. To promote healthy hair growth try to include foods like Salmon, whole grains, dark green vegetables and low-fat dairy within your diet.
  5. Buy bulk meat/fish from the butchers/fishmongers, as it always works out cheaper than buying from supermarkets and can be frozen for another time.
  6. If you choose to buy fruit and vegetables from the supermarket instead of market type stalls, always opt for offers so you get more for your money.
  7. Try to carry a home made lunch to work/place of study as it will stop you from buying a calorie-ridden alternative.
  8. And last but not least…DRINK PLENTY WATER! – Aim for 2 litres a day and drink two glasses at a time if you find it difficult to consume the water throughout the day.
