Simple Changes to Make 2018 Your Healthiest Yet


With a few simple changes to your lifestyle, you can enjoy your healthiest year yet.

  1. Aim to make breakfast your largest meal of the day because your metabolism is faster in the mornings. If you can, ensure you have 10 hours without food overnight.
  2. Include some protein with every meal because it helps to control hormone levels in the body, keeping you satiated for longer. Ideally, aim to have approximately 20 to 30 g of protein in a main meal. If you want a snack, then choose something with 5 to 10 g of protein to help control your appetite.
  3. The population of Okinawa in Japan are famous for having a long and healthy life expectancy, and rates of cancer and heart disease are low. Part of their secret is due to calorie control, only eating until they feel 80% full. Why not try it and see how you feel?
  4. Laughing can help you have a healthier vascular system. Try laughing for 15 minutes each day, combined with an exercise routine of 30 minutes three times a week.
  5. Office workers will often snack unhealthily, leading to unwanted weight gain. When the urge for a snack is too great, make sure you have some fresh, tasty fruit or a small handful of nuts to cope with cravings.
