1. Drink lots of water – take a 1.5 litre (2.5 pint) bottle of water to work with you and try to finish it all by home time.
  2. Eat five portions of fruit and vegetables every day.
  3. Never skip breakfast.
  4. Plan your meals the week ahead. Write a shopping list and stick to it – use the internet where possible and never shop when you’re hungry.
  5. Keep a supply of healthy snacks to hand (fresh and dried fruit, wholesome cereal bars, rice cakes, low-fat fruit yoghurts and wholemeal pitta and hummus are some ideas).
  6. Remove all visible fat from food before you cook it – take the skin off chicken and trim the white fat off any meat. Don’t eat sausages (the fat’s not visible from the outside but it’s certainly there).
  7. Limit stimulants such as caffeine, alcohol and refined sugar.
  8. Limit the number of times you eat out to once a week. Take your own packed lunch to work or choose soup in the canteen (non-creamy ones).
  9. Take your time. Don’t cut out food groups all together, such as carbohydrates, in a bid to lose weight quickly – your body needs balance. And don’t do denial – you’ll only end up cracking.
  10. Only eat things you like the taste of – find what works for you and don’t force yourself to eat things just because they’re good for you.
  11. And finally…enjoy these lovely recipes – cooking should never be stressful and eating should always be a pleasure.
