Top Diet Tricks To Stay Healthy During Lockdown
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has caused a lot of significant changes in our daily lives, and these apply to how we practice our diet and take care of our health. Daily disinfection and proper hygienic practices have little effect if we always compromise our immune systems and gain unwanted weight as a result of poor food and dietary choices, especially now that there is little space for exercise and physical activities.
Susie Burrell is a Sydney-based dietitian and nutritionist, and founder of ShapeMe, a website that specializes on personalized and dietitian-directed weight loss plans. Writing for Nine Network Australia’s 9Honey lifestyle arm, she has shared top diet tricks that will help you stay healthy during the coronavirus lockdown:
