Making Smart Choices

​​If you make smart choices with your diet it can help you to reach your goal more quickly. Below you will find a quick-reference guide for each meal and a couple of suggested smart choices.
What should I eat for breakfast?
Choose from:
Full-fat/Whole milk
Fruit (berries, grapes, apple)
Eggs (scrambled, poached, omelette)
Peanut butter
Full-fat Greek yoghurt
If you need something sweet, add honey
Smoked salmon
Vegetables (mushrooms, onion, spinach)
Smoothie (made from milk, fruit, peanut butter)

Smart choices:
Switch eggs & toast for an omelette
Switch cereal for Greek yoghurt and fruit
Switch bananas and other tropical fruit for berries, grapes or apples 
Switch low-fat milk for full-fat milk because there is less sugar in full-fat milk

What should I eat for lunch?
Choose from:
Salad (no bread) + chicken, steak, prawns, tofu, fish
Salad dressing - choose oil & vinegar, mayonnaise, soured cream (avoid salad cream and other pre-made dressings)
