Hi angels! Had a big long weekend and looking to get back on track? I know the feeling! So today, I’m sharing my top five tips for getting back on the healthy bandwagon, without the need for cleanses, detoxes, fasting, dieting and all that jazz! I hope these tips help you feel amazing again!

1. Don’t restrict yourself!

This might seem counterintuitive, but please don’t restrict or deprive yourself because you ate a bucket load of chocolate eggs, or drank wayyyy too many wines over the weekend! Realise that indulging is okay! Simply forgive yourself, and try to make healthier choices from today, onwards! Don’t restrict calories or foods for the next few days, or try to skip meals to make up for it. That’s not balance, angel. Going overboard for a few days isn’t the end of the world, so forgive yourself, make peace with it, and eat healthily from here on out! 

Need some inspo? Try the hundreds of simple, nutritious and balanced recipes in the JSHealth App, and you’ll be right back on track!

2. Use each meal as a chance to start again.

Angels, think of each meal as an opportunity to make healthy choices. You might have eaten an entire chocolate bar after lunch, but that doesn’t mean you should give up on eating healthily for the entire day, and write dinner off too. Instead, accept it, and when you sit down for dinner, go for the healthier options. Fill your plate with vegetables and lean protein, and eat less of the dessert this time. Don’t give up! Reset each time!

3. The JSHealth Vitamins Metabolism + Sugar Support formula

Angels, I created the Metabolism + Sugar Support formula for exactly these struggles! The formula contains Chromium, Magnesium and Zinc to boost your metabolism and energy levels, and Cinnamon and Gymnena to support blood sugar levels. These ingredients help banish those sugar cravings that may begin to lurk after an overly indulgent weekend, and instead support your metabolism, helping you feel back to your best!

4. Sleep!

If you’ve had a good night’s sleep, you’re much less likely to reach for sugary options in front of you to provide a quick burst of energy or a pick-me-up, and more able to make healthy choices. Aim for 7-9 hours each and every night, and notice the difference! Not only that, you’ll feel naturally more energised, and will be supporting your metabolism!

5. Reach for the nutritious stuff first.

The simplest tip of all? Start with the healthy foods on offer! Even if your fridge is still jammed full of delicious desserts and sugary bombshells, go for the lean protein, leafy green vegetables, and healthy fats first. Fill your plate (and hopefully your stomach!) with these first, and then you’ll have less room and tendency to go overboard on the treats afterwards.

I hope these tips help, angels, and remember the most important thing is to remember that indulging is okay! Forgive yourself and move on, and be your best self going forwards! I believe in you!
