November Challenge

5 Nutritional tips from Elisha Danine, the nutritionist responsible for this month’s amazing meal plan

1. Change the destination of your regular grocery shop.

Even in the same suburb you can find that the produce greatly differs and you could stumble upon different vegetables and ingredients to what you normally buy. Try some different shopping spots every now and then to help you to be more creative in your cooking and provide variety in your diet, so there is less chance of getting bored.

2. Buy ingredients for the week ahead and prepare most of your meals on Sunday.

This will set you up for the week and help prevent unnecessary snacking or takeaways when you are too busy or too tired to cook. Keep meals simple to avoid too much cooking on the Sunday so you still have time to enjoy your weekend.

3. Limit alcohol

Many mums use alcohol as their one and only vice when times get tough or stress creeps up on them. But alcohol is quite high in calories and the body pretty much stores the excess calories around the waist. If you’re wanting to look trim this summer then limiting your alcohol consumption will get you on your way. Choose low alcoholic drinks and ensure you drink plenty of water in between each alcoholic drink to avoid over-indulging. See our tips on the best choices when it comes to alcoholic drinks in this guide.

4. Eat more greens

Increasing your fibre intake with loads of fresh, healthy green vegetables will help with your digestion and avoid issues such as constipation. Adding more greens into your diet, such as broccoli, green beans, cabbage, spinach, endive and bok choy, will help to improve your digestion and take centimetres off your waist.

5. Be consistent with your exercise

Try to spend at least 2 hours per week moving your body. That could consist of 4 x 30 minute sessions per week or 2 x 1 hour sessions if that is easier. Consider incorporating High Intensity Interval Training routines, like those from the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges, to increase your workout intensity and boost results. Regular exercises gives you more motivation to eat better, so it is a win-win situation.

The exercise plans are focused on the butt and thighs (one of our MOST popular Challenge themes to date), including some NEW exercise videos within the weekly plans.

Why not try some yoga moves to make the most of this month tone you butt and thigh theme.
