Eating Habits

Q: So how much should I eat normally?

A: If you have normal weight, you ought to have food portions right. In this case ensure your plate always has half vegetables, a quarter of proteins and the other quarter of carbohydrates. Make sure that you take at least 8 glasses of water in a day.

Q: Can I eat out and still have healthy food?

A: Yes. Eating out can still be healthy depending on what food you choose to buy. Sometimes we think that traditional restaurants are healthy but this could not be true always. When you go to the restaurant ensure you order foods you know may not have been prepared using “bad” fat. It can be rice, mukimo, vegetables, soup, and fish. Ensure you avoid food that is dripping off oil at all costs.
