“If you give your body what it needs, that’s what it will crave. These 5 simple steps will help you to build a diet plan you’ll love that works for you and helps you get the absolute most out of every single day!

TIP # 1 – BASE EACH MEAL AROUND A PROTEIN
This will help you build lean muscle – which helps to burn fat. Eggs or yoghurt, lean meat like the free-range chicken and grass fed beef at SumoSalad. You want a portion size about as big as your fist. And if you’re vegetarian make sure you’re getting your protein from legumes or tofu.

TIP # 2 – YOUR CARBS SHOULD BE LOW GI
When in doubt, go dark: sweet potato, brown rice, wholemeal or rye bread and whole oats. If you are eating a gluten-free diet, buckwheat is the best alternative for bread and cereal.

TIP # 3 – MUM WAS RIGHT: EAT YOUR VEGGIES
Don’t forget your 5 and 2. This is essential for fibre and nutrients – reach for as many dark, leafy greens as possible! SumoSalad boasts the biggest selection of locally sourced, seasonal produce to include in your meal as a base or ingredients in the mix. Long live fresh veggies!

TIP # 4 – EAT SMALLER PORTIONS, MORE OFTEN
Try to have a medium-sized nutritious meal 5 times a day. This will keep your metabolism humming.

TIP # 5 – TREATS SHOULDN’T BE IN PLACE OF MEALS.
Have a small, sweet treat once a day as a reward for your healthy eating…and you can enjoy healthy treats as well! Take my word for it, some coconut protein balls on the market taste even better than a bounty bar and will leave you with a sweet, satisfied spring in your step!
