Models Direct are one of the UKs best established modelling agencies. In business for over 20 years, we have been there at every stage as the industry has grown consistently year on year. We wanted to share some interesting facts about dieting, and perhaps help you with any weight related new years resolutions!

Firstly, there are two main parts to a diet and these are what you eat, and when you eat it. Aside from physical exercise of some form, these two things form the foundation of any successful dieting. What you eat includes calorie content as well as the nutritious content. As a grown woman of average build your body needs 1500-2000 calories per day. Even if you spend a lot of time sitting down, your body still burns calories. Brain activity is proven to increase the burning of calories and sugars and you may have noticed that you get hungry quickly after starting an assignment or a task on the computer.

Your liquid intake is included in this 2000 calories. Models Direct think that this is particularly important to remember because a lot of drinks are very calorific or full of unhealthy sweeteners. Popular sweeteners used include aspartame, which has proven catastrophic effects on health in the long term. These must be avoided and the majority of fluids you consume should be water or teas. Stick to regular times, too. Eating after 8pm isn’t great for your digestion and will encourage the body to lay down fat when you sleep.
