The best way to stay healthy is to eat a good balanced diet whilst maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
This does not mean that you have to go to the gym twice a week (but it does help), but can be as simple as using the stairs
instead of the lift, walking round the block or going for a stroll, getting off a bus one stop earlier, or parking further
away from your place of work, or at the other end of the car park. Experts recommend thirty minutes a day of walking or
10,000 steps to help maintain a healthy body.
It is recommended that women need 2,000 and men need 2,550 calories a day to maintain body weight. If you do require
losing some weight, then it is best to reduce your calorie intake to 1,600 a day, which will allow you to lose
between ½-1kg (1-2lbs) a week.
Naturally weight loss may depend on how active you are and your age, shape and size and any medical conditions. Before
making any changes in your lifestyle, make sure you see your doctor or a nutritionist for expert advice.
