Our love of food and lack of physical exercise has led us to be one of Asia’s most obese nations, with a prevalence of 13.3%. Obesity is a hotbed for many health conditions including high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, among others.
What you can do today to ensure a healthier tomorrow is to watch your food intake. Make healthier choices in your everyday meals by going for more fruits and vegetables while cutting down on processed meats, sugar and fried foods. Should you want to up your intake of antioxidants, vary your serving of fruits and vegetables (7 to 10 servings daily) instead of relying on supplements.
Cooking your own meals instead of eating out has also proven to help people stay at their ideal weight or lose weight more effectively.
