With so many food choices, and conflicting information available on the internet, knowing what’s healthy and what’s not can be confusing.
It’s important to know, that eating healthy doesn’t necessarily mean to cut down on fats or carbs. At the end of the day, our body needs these essential nutrients to function normally.
Here are 10 general guidelines that every nutritionist follow and recommend:
1: Always start your day with breakfast
Breakfast jumpstarts your metabolism and gets it moving for the day. Studies show that people who eat breakfast weigh less than those who don’t.
2: Skip the fast food
Cutting out highly processed foods can be beneficial for your body in the long run, as it contains a lot of trans-fat, saturated fat, salt, sugar, and preservatives. Instead of indulging on fast food, prepare them at home using healthier ingredients.
3: Ditch the whites
When white foods, essentially “bad carbs” like white bread, white rice, white sugar, and white potatoes are consumed, the body releases a sudden spike of sugar in the bloodstream. This process makes you crave more food than what your body necessarily needs.
4: Eat veggies
Vegetables are lower in calories, great sources of vitamins and antioxidants, and packed with filling fiber. It helps you stay full longer, speeds up your metabolism, and aids in weight loss!
5: Stop fearing fat
Contrary to popular belief, fats don’t make people fat. In fact, fats release energy to the body to keep it satiated and also help regulate blood sugar. They are also known to give you powerful nutrients and antioxidants for cellular repair of joints, organs, skin, and hair. The best fats are unsaturated, which take a liquid form in room temperature. Healthy fats include, nuts, olive oil, fish oil, and flaxseed oil.
6: Don’t skip meals
Skipping meals will slow down your metabolism, and confuse your body when to start and stop eating. If you don’t eat enough calories throughout the day, you’ll be more likely to overindulge at night.
7: Carbs aren’t evil
Carbs are good sources of energy that help you absorb all the nutrients you consume. Ancient grains like quinoa and chia, are good sources of carbohydrates.
8: Eat until you’re full
Listen to your body. Make sure you chew your food slowly, and stop eating once you’re full.
9: Hydrate with water
The right amount of hydration helps the organs to function properly. It aids in blood circulation, encourages cell regeneration, and helps in absorbing all the necessary nutrients our body needs.
10: Enjoy your food
Because of the word “diet”, a lot of people think that healthy eating and food enjoyment are mutually exclusive. Instead of depriving yourself with foods that you like, work towards a lifestyle based on healthy choices that are going to help your body in the long term.

You are all a wonderful team, high spirit, smiley faces and constant care. Many thanks for helping me in losing weight, reach my goal, keep on being motivated and feeling wonderful and most importantly healthy.
Best wishes to all and hope to see you soon, for maintenance only.
Been doing Vellasmooth for 3 weeks and have already lost more than 7cm from my abdomen. Amazing results!! Fantastic Treatment, lovely friendly staff and a great atmosphere. Thanks Slimspa
Thank you so much! Not only I lost some cm but I spent great time here. Each session I came more relaxed. What more can I expect? Thank you again and see you next time.
Lisa is best! Really grateful to Lisa & Naseem for all the support.Lost 6 miles in just 5 sessions.
Great service & ambience at slimspa.
A big thank you to all spa team for your nice welcoming, always smiling, for your patience and efforts to meet any needs. I have not always been an easy going client but you have all been very consistent in your efforts and always very comforting. Slimspa is not only a spa but a lovely family.
Thank you, had a lovely and relaxing lymphatic massage.
Dear Slimspa, You are one of the best spa but there will always be one more room for improvement. Your room lights, more machines so we can enjoy more time to have our treatments. We like all your staff, they are really good. Keep it up! God bless!
Slimspa Team, Thank you for your special treatment. Your spa is very welcoming and professional. I had satisfying results and will come back for sure.
To Slimspa Having a great healthy figure is a compromise and full time job. An awesome diet and gym is the key but for a faster result I tried manual massages and endermologies, the results were amazing, long lasting and meet all my expectations. Cellulite is not about exercise as much as intake of water & estimulation through massages and that's what I got from these treatments & great increase in collagen in my skin. I truly recommend LPG products and treatments,I am happy client.
I had got a very impressive result from my anti cellulite treatments and really like to thank my therapist Soumiys for being so professional , precise and patience . The spa itself is very clean , the staff were friendly and my treatment always starts & ends on time .
Amazing spa and reasonably priced for LPG! I had good results and the therapist Ciby is so knowledgeable and professional. Definitely coming back!
Had a great experience with Hanna. She matched my colour perfectly and I find her cut the easiest to manage and style.
It was a pleasant experience. The staff was friendly, made me feel welcome and explained everything / procedures for my treatment to me. I will definitely go there again for future treatments. Thank you so much. I have already experienced some of the desired results - just two weeks after my first treatment! So I already booked my next treatment and am very excited about possible future results.
I had a wonderful experience with the spa, the combination of treatments was very helpful on my goal to get a better figure. The personal was professional, I believe they have always keep the expectations to reality and would recommend to anyone who wants to achieve results.
The Hydrafacial was totally excellent. The great ambience coupled with the helpful and kind behaviour of the staff, the treatment was not only useful for my skin but also had been a very pleasant experience
Currently undergoing Venus Legacy sessions (with Somaya) and manual anti cellulite massage (Warda) and they do wonders! After four sessions I see the results. Everyone is super accommodating and professional.
Really impressed with this place. They offer all types of solutions for slimming and body contouring. Had cellulite treatment here and was more than satisfied with the results. The staff are very professional and very friendly and they will give you the best advice and solutions.
Efficient, friendly, personalized attention and warm service. Very comfortable going ahead with their treatments owing to their experienced staff.
