Update from Lydia

Happy healthy hello Mencap Liverpool members, I want to say how impressed I was with all you guys during our recent boxing sessions. All of you picked it up really quickly and seemed to enjoy the boxing loads. And there was tons of energy in the room, I was tired just watching you guys. As you know this type of exercise is great for getting rid of any stress that you may be having. Even if you not got any gloves and pads, you can always ‘shadow box’.

Some healthy tips for members :

1.   Eat healthy food every 3hrs –  Skipping meals can lead to out-of-control hunger, often resulting in overeating. When you’re very hungry, it is also tempting to forget about good nutrition. Snacking between meals can help curb hunger, but don’t eat so much that your snack becomes an entire meal.

2.   Look at your diet pitfalls – look at what foods / drinks you think are unhealthy and try to reduce / cut back on them.

3.   Meal plate – when you make a meal try and include a Protein, a Carbohydrate and a Vegetable.

4.   Keep working out to your circuits programmes at home

See you soon!
