There are loads of different myths and old wives tales about dieting, but healthy eating doesn’t require odd ingredients or overdosing on garlic.

Simple Steps.  Making small changes to the way you prepare and cook your food and watching your portion sizes can help you eat more healthily and lose weight.

Educate yourself. What might come as a surprise is that we get most of our salt from processed foods. So while it’s a great idea to take the salt shaker off the dinner table, getting familiar with food labels is just as important to help make healthy choices.

Walk More. Join our healthy walks in Mountsfield Park Saturdays at 11am

Tip: Slowly reduce the amount of salt you add each day, and try adding more herbs and spices to bump up the flavour of your favourite dishes.
