Guest Post / What a Nutrition Student Eats in A Day....

Meet BitesbyBecs: 

''I am a true believer in balance - I eat as healthily as I possibly can; however like everyone else, some days are always going to be better than others. After all I am a student! If I am eating out, I always tend to go for the healthiest option on the menu; however, if I fancy a pizza that is what I will have! I am also a chocoholic with a huge sweet tooth so if someone opens a packet of chocolate or a tub of ice cream is opened it would be rude to say no!

As you can see in the example week below, I eat three main meals a day, as well as two or three snacks (again depending on if I am working out etc.). My main meals always include a protein source, a complex carbohydrate, some healthy fats and heaps of vegetables. My snacks tend to be high in protein and healthy fats to keep me full and provide me with enough energy. 

Hydration is so important so I take a water bottle everywhere I go, I try to drink 2-3 litres of water a day. I also start my day with a cup of tea, either peppermint or green tea and tend to have at least one more throughout the day.''
