Eat wellHEALTH COMPETENCE 2/6
The big picture is pivotal when it comes to eating. What you eat affects your coping. Different foods complement each other. Everyday choices help you cope.
Eat according to consumption
- The balance is right when your weight remains under control. Too little food is not enough, but you can test the long-term effects of excess energy by taping a 10 kg of weight on your waist.
- Eat regularly and pay attention to the portion size. Regular meal interval prevents hunger, stomach problems and overeating.
- As the portion size increases, the amount of energy consumed increases. Large portion sizes tempt you to eat too much.
- Minimize the consumption of sugar (especially sugary drinks) and white grain.
