    If you want to continue eating everything you enjoy, the key is moderation and offsetting the calories with exercise.

    Whilst certain things are best avoided (saturated fats, for example) it is perfectly possible to live a healthy lifestyle whilst eating whatever you enjoy, you just have to ensure that you moderate your sugar and fat intake.

    To go beyond dietary steps, plenty of varied exercise will help to keep you healthy by burning calories and using your muscles. Plenty of fruit and vegetables, whilst ensuring you get enough protein, is always a good idea.

    Try cutting the number of calories of your daily intake, try different types of foods but with less calories in them, but make sure that you don’t forget your 5 a day!

    Find healthier foods to enjoy, eat less of the bad things, more of the good. Exercise of course.

    Five a day is both a slogan and something people should aspire to. (There are those who suggest that people need more than five a day, something closer to eight.) For those who don’t already have many fruit and vegetables in their diet, it’s something to work towards. For parents, thinking about how to get the kids interested in eating healthily can provide a lot of mental stimulation (also good for you)! There are lots of interesting ways of preparing fruit and veg to make them appealing to kids. The internet is awash with recipes and many can be found here at Suite101. Take a look around. Five a day can and should be enjoyable and fun and it constitutes an essential part of a healthy lifestyle.
    Now that the mix of five a day is determined, what makes an appropriate five a day portion? Basically, a portion of fruit or vegetable should be about the size of a fist. So,

    * if it’s peas, cooked cabbage, turnip or carrot, two or three heaped tablespoons should do the trick
    * an apple, orange or grapefruit is very handily sized being about the size of a fist, so one of those constitutes a portion
    * plums are a little smaller, so two or three will fit the bill
    * for smaller berries, a third of a breakfast cereal bowl is about right

    Hi Vikki

    The healthiest way to lose weight is neither crash diets nor bursts of exercise. The body likes slow changes in terms of food and exercise.

    For example, someone who has not exercised for years should not rush into running miles a day or pounding the treadmill. Not only will the struggle to do so leave you feeling disheartened and demotivated, you’re also far more likely to injure yourself and set your fitness levels back further.

    The same goes for people who suddenly start starving themselves. Diets that severely restrict calories or the types of food ‘allowed’ can lead you to be deficient in the nutrients and vitamins that your body needs.

    So if you need to lose weight, what should you do?

    Energy needs and weight loss

    Your body uses food for energy. It stores any excess energy as fat. This means if you eat more food than your body needs for daily activities and cell maintenance, you will gain weight.

    To lose weight, you need to get your body to use up these stores of fat. The most effective way to do this is to:
    – reduce the amount of calories you eat
    – increase your levels of activity.

    This is why experts talk about weight loss in terms of diet and exercise.

    Introduce changes gradually

    Small changes can make a big difference. One extra biscuit a week can lead you to gain 5lb a year – cut that biscuit out of your diet and you’ll lose the same amount.

    You are also more likely to stick to, say, swapping full-fat milk for semi-skimmed or making time for breakfast each morning than a diet that sets rules for all foods.

    You should think of weight loss in terms of permanently changing your eating habits. While weight-loss goals are usually set in term of weeks, the end game is to sustain these changes over months and years.

    Increase your activity levels

    Someone who increases the amount they exercise, but maintains the same diet and calorie intake, will almost certainly lose weight.

    No matter if you hate gyms – even light exercise such as a short 20 minute walk will be beneficial if done most days of the week.

    Every single time you exercise more than usual, you burn calories and fat.

    There are lots of ways to increase the amount of activity you do. Team sports, racket sports, aerobics classes, running, walking, swimming and cycling will all improve your fitness levels.

    Find something you enjoy that’s easy for you to do in terms of location and cost. You are then more likely to build it into your routine and continue to exercise, despite inevitably missing the odd session through holidays, family commitments, etc.

    Get out and about at the weekend. Leave your car on the drive and walk to the shops. Try to incorporate longer walks into outings to the park, coast or countryside and take a picnic so you are in control of what you are going to eat that day.

    Every extra step you take helps. Always use the stairs instead of the lift, or get off the bus a stop before the usual one and walk the rest of the way.

    Use commercial breaks between TV-programmes to stand up and do exercise, or consider using an exercise bicycle in the living room while watching your favourite programme.

    Reduce your calorie intake
    If you are overweight, you can’t continue with your current eating habits.

    It’s not possible to reduce body fat while eating lots of food, cakes and sweets. This doesn’t mean you can never have any treats, but you need to learn how to limit these foods to small quantities – say, for special occasions.

    In terms of weight-loss, you can get your body to use up existing stores of fat by eating less and making healthier choices.

    This doesn’t mean crash diet (anything less than 1500 calories), which usually ends up with you either getting weaker or giving up in desperation. Quick-fix diets can lead to a yo-yoing effect of drastic weight loss followed by weight gain, resulting in a vicious cycle.
