Tips - Food & Drink

Take care at the cinema

A giant coke is almost 400 calories and a large box of sweet popcorn can be 1,800 calories
That's the equivalent of a curry & 2 beers & you'll hardly notice eating it!

Curry for the feel good factor

Hot, spicy foods containing chillies or cayenne pepper trigger endorphins, the feel-good hormones. Endorphins have a powerful, almost narcotic, effect and make you feel good after exercising. Avoid creamy curries though if you are trying to lose weight as these are higher in fat than tomato or spinach based curries.

Measure your wine glasses

Measure the capacity of your wine glass at home. That way you will know exactly how many calories and how many units you are drinking.

Drink from a tall glass

Research says that if you have a drink in a tall slender glass you'll drink less than drinking from a short fat one!
