In a surprise turn of events, health experts revealed the worst diet tips and also suggested what to do to stay healthy and in shape this year.
A certified holistic health coach Lee Holmes told FEMAIL, “It’s much better to focus on eating the right kinds of foods for your own body type and foods that will balance hormones, help to burn fat and boost your metabolism.”
Ms Holmes said, “These foods are different for everybody, but generally speaking, stick to a good balance of protein, healthy fats, carbohydrates and include more fresh foods such as vegetables and fruit.”
Australian fitness guru Kayla Itsines said, “Cutting carbs is a weight loss trick that doesn’t work. It’s not sustainable for your body and can mean you miss out on vital nutrients. Instead, you can try swapping refined grains (like white bread) for less-processed versions (such as rye) and keep an eye on your portions.”
Clinical nutritionist and author Jessica Sepel told FEMAIL, “It’s about exercising in ways that you love; this is what I call ‘exercising with kindness’. Aim for 30 to 45 minutes, five times a week, and enjoy one or two rest days each week.”
Sports model and personal trainer Alexa Towersey told FEMAIL that eating less often causes us to ‘damage our metabolism’.
She added, “As a general rule of thumb, the more extreme the action, the more extreme the reaction. In my experience, the longer it takes to come off, the longer it will stay off. It’s truly a case of slow and steady wins the race.”
