Eat pure protein first (vegetable protein such as hummus or animal protein like fish) – before your carbs – and always keep sweet things for last. This greatly reduces the impact of any sugar in the food which means the body stores less in the form of fat. (And when your blood sugar peaks, your body is also more likely to store extra calories as fat at your next meal.) On the go? Keep a supply of turkey jerky in your handbag for when hunger hits. Protein-rich and satisfying, chewing jerky will give your brain the time it needs to register you’re full before you indulge in anything else!
