Take steps towards healthy ageing

According to a 2018 Philippine nutrition survey conducted by Herbalife Nutrition, 97 percent of Filipinos agree that everyone can age healthily and that they can take positive steps towards healthy ageing.

The survey also showed that 89 percent of those who agreed have already started with their personalized plans on living healthy at their current ages. I'm sure you will agree that having a good health as you get older is beneficial to you and the people around you!

Healthy ageing will allow you to enjoy long and quality life with your family and friends, meaning they can enjoy your company longer. You can work more because you're disease-free and you will not spend money to buy medicines. Nutrition and wellness are the keys to achieving such a state.

Chin-Kun Wang, Ph.D. is an expert in metabolism and nutrition.

Healthy food choices, exercise

Eating a lot of rice, calories are suitable before because people (Filipinos) need the energy to work on the farms. But now, there are work and lifestyle changes, you just work at the desk, the amount of calories you burn are less, and this is the mismatch between the energy we take and the energy we use, the excess energy will be stock in the body and it will make you fat slowly but surely.

Additionally, eating fruits, vegetables and white meat is important in becoming healthy inside and out. Also, good digestion can be achieved through sufficient consumption of fiber-rich food like fruits, grains, oats and vegetables for bowel movement which helps in the removal of bodily toxins.

Fiber lubricates the gut, so the stool can pass and go out of your body easily. Unfortunately, not all people eat the five servings of vegetables and fruits a day recommendation of WHO (World Health Organization).

Now, living a sedentary lifestyle is one of the main factors for heart attack. We don't walk a lot now, we don't run, we don't work in the farm, we just ride the car and spend most of our time in front of the screen like television and computers. This is where exercise comes into play.

Though exercise is very important, weight loss is actually 80% diet and only 20% exercise. So, remember to eat healthy and eat right.
