When it comes to consuming dairy, the ideal is to lean towards skim milk and white cheeses.

Choose low-fat sausages.

  • Eat five servings of vegetables and fruits a day. In this case, keep in mind that a portion is equivalent to a tennis ball.
  • To prepare vegetables, do not allow them to overcook because they lose many of their properties and firmness. Prefer them crispy and fresh.
  • To cook, look for recipes prepared in the oven, steamed papillote or grilled, with natural spices; and avoid fried and baked with creamy sauces.
  • Finish eating when you feel satisfied and do not wait to be full.
  • Always stay well hydrated and remember that nothing better than water.
  • From the moment of shopping at the supermarket, plan your food and your family's. Say no to pre-cooked foods, snacks, soft drinks, candies and artificial products.
  • Do not consume as much salt and prefer the one with the lowest sodium content and only eat one flour at each meal.
  • Include fish at least twice a week in your diet, it is one of the foods with more properties. Blue fish, for example, is rich in omega 3 fatty acids.
  • Say yes to nuts because they are a source of protein, fibre, vitamins and balanced fats.
  • Use non-stick containers to minimise fat consumption.
  • Reduce the amount of sugar you consume. Use cinnamon, nutmeg, nutmeg, vanilla extract or almond to flavor your meals.
  • Eat more beans. They provide many proteins and give a greater feeling of fullness.
