Stylish healthy foods

Hey there and a warm welcome to Stylefyle! Hope your Friday is going great!  I’m Jennifer Su.  Tonight we’re going to talk about stylish healthy foods to make you look great!


Get your body beach-ready with these toning and firming foods. Body sculpting is all about building lean muscle and burning excess fat sustainably. The best way to achieve it is by combining these healthy ingredients with a regular cardio and resistance training exercise programme.


Remember, women need to eat 2200 calories a day to sustain weight, and 1750 to lose weight. If you're not sure how much you should be eating, consult your GP or a dietician for advice. Oh, yes, we WILL have thighs like Rihanna…


Lean Chicken Breast

If you’re looking to tone and sculpt your body into fine, statuesque form, then you need to feed your muscles. The stronger and more powerful your muscles are, the more calories you will burn – and faster. Aim to eat around 15-20g of protein with each meal. A grilled chicken breast is ideal, because it’s low in fat and high in protein.


Oily fish like mackerel, too, are particularly nutritious forms of low calorie protein. Packed full of omega 3 and 6, calcium, selenium, magnesium, potassium, folate, niacin, vitamins A, B12, C and K (phew!), eating a portion of mackerel three times a week is your one-way ticket to glowing skin, shiny hair and a toned bod.


As are oysters, which are particularly high in body sculpting protein, calcium, zinc, selenium, iron (essential for collagen production) and vitamin A. Plus, they’re less than 20 calories a shell – and worth every tiny count.


There are many ways to cook an egg, and we advise you to try all of them if you’re striving for a super-slender, muscular physique. Eggs are a great low-cal source of protein – just remember that the yolks are quite high in saturated fat (as well as other nutrients, like selenium and zinc, of course). The egg whites are much lower in fat, so save the yolks for a rainy baking day, and tuck into an egg white omelette instead.

Lean Beef

Don’t rule out a good, old-fashioned steak, either. We’re not talking about the kind fried in cholesterol-dripping butter, but a lean, grilled piece of meat will provide just the boost of protein and iron you need to feed those hungry muscles. Remember, your intake of red meats should be limited as they are higher in saturated fats and calories than fish, but once or twice a week could do your bod the world of firming good.


And don’t forget soya protein alternatives, either. Taken as a supplement, soya is thought to have a collagen-boosting, anti-aging effect, so coupled with the high levels of protein and low fat that tofu contains, it’s an ideal addition to your diet if you’re looking to firm up fast. Best enjoyed marinated and cooked in a stir fry with some of the other ingredients from this list.


Forget lettuce – spinach is a salad leaf you’d be foolish to ignore. It’s high in iron and vitamin C, both of which help to produce collagen in the body. Collagen is a rubbery type of protein that gives skin and muscles their toned, youthful and elastic appearance. Spinach is also high in fibre, and will keep you feeling fuller for longer.


Berries are fabulous sources of antioxidants – vitamins which help to track down and get rid of harmful toxins in the body. Together with blueberries and strawberries, they’re low in calories too…

Brown Rice

In order to have the energy to exercise, build muscles, firm, tone and even think, our bodies need carbs. Steer clear of white, refined carbohydrates, and stick to wholegrain varieties, like brown rice, instead. Brown rice is packed with vitamins and minerals, as well as containing protein, so is a great choice to pair with other ingredients on this list.

White Tea

To top it all off? Reach for a steaming mug of white tea – the most antioxidant-rich part of the tea plant, known for its anti-aging, firming and regenerating benefits. Two to three cups a day ought to do it. Along with plenty of water.

And there ya go, some of the most healthy, stylish foods on the planet!  Twitter your healthy stylish food choices to us @TeenTimeRTHK – For Stylefyle, I’m Jennifer Su.
