A healthier you...
4:24pm Thursday 6th March 2008 in Leisure
Yes, we've still got our wobbly tums and bouncy bums, but with January's faddy diets way behind us, it's time to put a bit of thought into the way we live.
We all want to live longer, be thinner, smarter, fitter, feel better and have more energy to participate in life.
In short, we all want a happy life.
Whether you need a bit more energy to take up something new or you simply can't run around after the grandkids, like you did with your own children, making a few small changes will make the world of difference to how you look and feel.
This is the time to invest in yourself and think about your most fragile possession, your body.
Take good care of your body and your body will take good care of you.
And because what you eat plays a vital part in shaping your life, looking after me' also means eating well.
The good news is that incorporating foods that benefit your health and wellbeing and avoiding those that don't is really simple.
Take saturated fat for instance - it's the bad fat you can live without. Omega 3 & 6 are the good fats, you probably need a bit more of and as for artificial this and that - you can definitely banish those for good.
You don't have to eat rabbit food or spend a fortune. It's a question of balance.
Just make a few little changes and notice a big difference.
