Our 7 Diet Hints Exclusively For You

A piece of good advice from an ancient wisdom: “It’s all about eating the right food at the right time in the right amounts”.

Between-Meal Snack

Athletes eat up to 11 times per day! Us mere mortals should be eating small meals four to six times as day to boost our metabolism. “Feeling ravenous when it comes time to eat often leads to overeating. Keep snack-sized portions of nutritious food handy – such as cut-up vegetables and mixed nuts – and spread out your meals.

Those “little bites” usually include sweets, biscuits, jam served with tea, or a small bag of pistachios, 100 g of which contribute 700 calories and by one third increase the nutritive value of the day’s ration.
