As celebrity dietitian for the Health Factor Challenge, I hosted a special event last night at Southwark Council. “Eat Smart, Eat Healthy’ with Angela Tella” was a presentation open to the public and what an amazing response!
I spoke on the concept of healthy eating as well as dispelled some myths too about healthy eating being boring, expensive and complicated. There was lively discussion as well as lots of questions about the practicalities of healthy eating.
I also ran a workshop, ‘Making Successful and Lasting Diet and Lifestyle Change’ for the Health Factor Challenge participants. The workshop explored the practical aspects of making change by highlighting the behavioural aspects of successful change and providing tools for setting and achieving their diet and lifestyle goals.
Finally, there was the opportunity for the groups to choose and discuss a healthy recipe for a Cook and Eat session/competition the following day. I had a great time and wish all participants every success. For more information visit Southwark Health Factor.
