We all love eating and socializing with our friends and family.

Fatty steaks, oven-baked creamy potatoes, cauliflower with white sauce & cheese, chocolate pudding, beer & wine… The list is endless. Unfortunately, this endless list of indulging foods can lead to bloating in the stomach and sometimes abdominal pain.

‘’You are what you eat’’ is an old saying used to describe the way one’s body looks according to what they eat.

You may find yourself suddenly breaking out in acne, eczema or psoriasis. Any number of chronic skin problems can be directly linked to your diet. Eating a regular diet of unhealthy food can affect your skin such as breaking out. Your organs can also be affected by these types of eating patterns, the fat content of your meals can add to heart decease as the fat builds up on your arteries. 

Try and avoid excessive alcohol consumption. Heavy drinking is not good for our bodies and immune system. Long-term, chronic alcohol consumption is the major cause of liver cirrhosis which can lead to liver cancer.  Liver cirrhosis is a late stage of scarring and fibrosis of the liver caused by many forms of liver diseases and conditions, such as hepatitis and chronic alcoholism.

The liver carries out several necessary functions, including detoxifying harmful substances in your body, cleaning your blood and making vital nutrients. Eat three balanced meals a day, dinner does not have to be a large feast at night it would be better to eat something small at night ideally before 7pm.

We all know it is best for weight loss to eat most of your calories earlier in the day. Eating too many calories at a single meal can negatively affect your metabolism.

If that big meal is important to you, make sure to choose healthy, nutritious foods and try not to overeat till the stage of uncomfortably. The theory of losing weight seems simple yet one needs to think of what you’re eating and what you’re doing with what you put in your body. Have a happy relationship with your daily nibbles and enjoy the food you consume!
