January is the month where many people embark on a new diet trend, start hitting the gym and make that promise that this is going to be their year.
Whether you’ve started Veganuary, Dry January (or maybe even both) our nutritionist shares knowledge and tips to help you stay on top of your health and make real, easy changes for good.
At Cellnutrition each of our products has a purpose, optimising your cellular health, putting the correct foundations in place and enabling you to absorb more nutrients from your food.
- Keep motivated
Focus on what you want, not what you don’t. Creating positivity helps you stay motivated so that you reach your goals.
There is no ‘perfect’ diet or ‘one diet fits all’ and it is therefore important to find what works best for you. Getting support from a family member or friend is helpful as you can encourage each other, cook meals for each other and share recipes and ideas.
Cellnutrition Quinton is a 100% natural, complete mineral supplement that is suitable for everybody. Enhance your energy in the morning or prevent an afternoon slump, take one ampoule of Hypertonic on an empty stomach, or at least 20 minutes before food. Alternatively, to aid relaxation take one ampoule of Isotonic in the evening. Each ampoule of Cellnutrition Quinton provides 78 bioavailable elements in different concentrations to keep your cells in check.
- Consider when and why you eat
In our modern world we are often too short on time for breakfast, too busy for lunch and often lack energy and motivation to cook a healthy dinner. This modern culture interrupts the traditional three meals a day approach leading to people grazing throughout the day to sustain energy levels and mealtimes can easily become a thing of the past.
Without mealtimes, it is easy to forget when you have last eaten which can often lead to over or under-eating. It is therefore beneficial to make time for preparing nourishing snacks/ meals (even if they are on-the-go) as opposed to consuming processed, nutrient-poor snacks.
Omegabiocell369 is a plant-based Omega oil that provides the correct balance of essential fatty acids, Omega-3,6 and 9 which can be added to prepped meals and snacks for a nutritional boost. Having the correct balance of essential fatty acids supports cardiovascular health and cognitive function to keep you focussed.
If you find yourself reaching for a snack ask yourself are you hungry, is it boredom or is it habitual?
Consuming a light snack between meals can help to curb cravings and sustain energy but constant grazing/ snacking leads to high insulin production, which can cause the immune system to drive inflammation, as opposed to its other functions. This can lead to dysfunction and increased risk of illness. Replace grazing/snacking with balanced nutritious meals and an optional snack.
By fuelling your body with the correct balance of minerals and fats this provides cells with the correct foundations so that they can function more effectively and therefore support you.
Research also suggests that eating all your meals within a 10-12-hour window can aid energy levels and support weight maintenance. This means if you consume your last meal or snack at 7 pm, consume your breakfast no earlier than 7 am.
- What should I eat for breakfast?
Whether you work from home or you're returning to the office, preparation is key. Healthy, on-the-go breakfasts can be prepped the night before to ensure you start your day right and reduce cravings throughout the day.
Some nutritious options that you can eat on-the-go include blueberry overnight oats, nutrient-dense smoothies or fruit and nut butter on toast.
Variety is important as different types of fibre feed the gut microbiome, supporting gut health and digestion.
However, 3 staple ingredients that can be used for each of the recipes above include berries, cinnamon and Omegabiocell369.
Berries; berries are low sugar fruit and therefore have shown to require less insulin for sugar balance after a meal. You can mix it up and have frozen or fresh and choose a variety.
Cinnamon; cinnamon has shown to normalise blood sugar levels and improve the body’s ability to respond to insulin. It helps to slow the rate at which the stomach empties after eating and is therefore beneficial to sprinkle over your oats or add to a smoothie.
OmegaBiocell369; Omegabiocell369 provides a balance of essential fatty acids Omega-3,6 and 9. By adding a source of fat such as Omegabiocell369 to your breakfast along with a source of protein this helps to keep you fuller for longer, thereby reducing cravings for snacking at your desk.
