Staying healthy is something that should of course be very important to everybody - but its often easy to forget when living our hectic 21st century lives what we should be doing in order to promote good health. The following posts gives some helpful tips and advice that should help give you the guidance required in order to help you live a healthier lifestyle.
Eat a Varied Diet - Man can't live by bread alone, and therefore ensuring you eat a healthy, varied and balanced diet is essential in order to try and promote good health. The body requires around 40 different nutritional elements to be health and this cannot be achieved from eating just one or two types of food. Reading the nutrition information of packets of food in the supermarket can give you guidance on the makeup of that product and help you eat a balanced diet.
Eat Moderate Portions, Frequently - It can often be tempting to pig out but in order to stay healthy it is important not to eat too much. However, ensuring you eat meals on a regular basis - not skipping breakfast or lunch for example - can help keep your hunger in touch and help you avoid excessive binge eating.
Eat Fruit and Vegetables - The UK guidelines suggest you should be eating 5 portions of either fruit or vegetables every day. Vegetables are high in fibre which helps digestion and also contain essential vitamins that the body needs to be in healthy working order.
