No Calorie Counting


Andersson says she no longer counts calories, instead focusing on healthy and satiating foods. "I used to weigh myself first thing in the morning, have oatmeal and berries for breakfast, but be counting calories like an obsessive weirdo, now I eat my oatmeal and berries until I'm full," she says. "No counting these evil little kilo-joules but instead; listening to the thing that I have been neglecting the most. My body." 


Healthy Breakfast

Andersson enjoys an omelet with mixed vegetables for a filling yet healthy breakfast. "Eggs are high-quality protein and contain a wide variety of vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin A, vitamin D, B vitamins, and folate," says Natalie Rizzo, a registered dietitian in New York City. "Eggs are also rich in choline, a micronutrient that is important for pregnant women and babies."


Protein and Carbs

A typical lunch for Andersson consists of protein such as chicken or fish with carbs such as brown rice. "Brown rice retains the bran layer and as such contains protective compounds called flavonoids, examples of these include apigenin and quercetin," says registered nutritionist Kerry Torrens. "These compounds play an important role in protecting against disease. Numerous studies suggest including wholegrains, like brown rice, in the diet is linked to a reduced risk of conditions like heart disease, some cancers including pancreatic and gastric cancers as well as type 2 diabetes."


Light Dinner

Andersson keeps dinner light with a green smoothie made with spinach and kale. "Spinach is an excellent source of vitamin K as well as being a source of magnesium, calcium and phosphorus," says registered nutritionist Jo Lewin. "These nutrients are important for maintaining bone health."


Focusing On Mental Health

Andersson makes sure to focus on her mental as well as her physical health, especially after having a baby. "It's important to know you're not alone," she says. "I'll WhatsApp my sister or friends if I need mom advice. It's an easy way to communicate and I can share things on there knowing it's a safe space."
