A typical diet is made up of different types of fat. While you need to make sure you eat foods that contain healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, too much saturated fat can increase the amount of cholesterol in your blood, which can increase your risk of developing coronary heart disease.
You can have a high cholesterol level even if you are a healthy weight. And even if your cholesterol level is healthy, it’s important to eat well and to be active to keep your heart healthy.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats provide essential fatty acids and fat soluble vitamins – so they’re an important part of your diet.
Wherever possible replace saturated fats with small amounts of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.
The average man should have no more than 30g of saturated fat a day, and the average woman no more than 20g a day.

WACKY WEDNESDAY ??
On a serious note, it’s interesting what we think or say about ourselves. More often we are comparing ourselves to others. Be you and no one else

Pancakes can be enjoyed anytime of the day and these are an excellent source of protein, 14g in each one.
Once you have mastered the technique then you’ll keep making them over and over again.
1 serving of Herbalife F1 Vanilla Cream
1/2 serving of Herbalife Protein Drink Mix
1/3 teaspoon of baking powder
Pinch of salt
100ml semi-skimmed milk
2 teaspoons honey
Blitz the oats and almonds in a blender until fine. Tip the ingredients into a bowl and add the F1 vanilla cream, protein drink mix, baking powder and salt.
In a separate bowl whisk the eggs, and add in the milk and the honey.
Make a well in the centre of the dry ingredients and pour in the egg mixture, whisking to remove all the lumps to make a smooth batter.
Place a frying pan on a medium heat and rub ( using a folded up kitchen paper) a little butter or coconut oil over the base of the pan.
Once the pan is almost hot, drop in large tablespoon amount of the mixture, spaced apart from each other and cook for a couple of minutes until golden brown underneath. Then turn over and cook the other side. If the pan is too hot then pancakes will burn before they’re cooked in the centre, so sometimes it’s worth turning down the heat a little when turning over onto the second side.
Serve straight away with a little honey or for more decadent but more calorific chocolate spread.
Why do you need carbohydrates? Carbohydrates are your body’s main source of energy: They help fuel your brain kidneys heart muscles and central nervous system. For instance fiber is a carbohydrate that aids in digestion helps you feel full and keeps blood cholesterol levels in check.

One way to predict the future is to create it. Have you started to create a short, medium or long term plan? Are you going to exactly what you did last week or the week before and still wonder why your unhappy? For example, maybe you have wanted to change how you feel about yourself and you get to the weekend and say you will start a new exercise regime or diet on Monday. Monday comes then life takes over so you put it off until next week. Maybe you have considered working for yourself but then thought it’s too much of a risk to go it alone?
A famous quote “our doubts are but traitors” Today or this week maybe the start of something you can create and when you look back you might think, I wish I had started earlier.
Mexican Egg Roll
A quick easy vegetarian snack. A one egg omelette in a wrap, add some salsa for a low carb alternative to a flatbread or sandwich.
1 large egg
A little grapeseed oil or fry light
2 tablespoon tomato salsa
1 tablespoon of fresh coriander
Beat the egg with 1 tablespoon water. Heat the oil in a non stick pan. Add the egg and swirl around the base of the pan, similar to making a pancake, cook until set. No need to turn it.
Carefully tip the pancake onto a plate or board, sprinkle the coriander and spread with salsa, then roll it up. It can be eaten cold or warm and kept in the fridge for around 2 days.

Today’s topic is procrastinating, and the myth is you will get round to it eventually, that’s a myth! You don’t place enough value to get it done. This could be to eat better, save money, ring a a member of family or a friend you haven’t spoken to for a while. The image shows what a cycle we can get ourselves when you procrastinate. The famous advert just do it! Then see what satisfaction you’ll get and realisation of why you didn’t do it in the beginning.
