It’s never too late to think about adopting a healthier lifestyle. It doesn’t mean that you suddenly have to change your diet and start spending every day at the gym. Just a few small changes can make a big difference – making you feel better, giving you more energy and helping you to sleep more soundly. Research shows that having a positive attitude to life in general, and to getting older, can help you enjoy better health too. Choosing activities that give you an opportunity to meet people or play an active role in your local community can also help.
Eat Most: Fruits and Vegetables
It’s always nice to be able to recommend people eat more of something, so here goes: eat more fruit and veg, in fact, eat lots. They’re full of good stuff.
A simple way of knowing you’re getting enough vegetables is to make about half your lunch and dinner non-starchy vegetables. They are full of goodness and help fill you up with few calories.
So have a think about how you could get some more veges and fruit into your day. Maybe you could:
add one more vegetable to dinner
add a salad vege to your sandwick (eg. tomato, lettuce, beetroot, grated carrot)
add coleslaw to a takeaway meal so at least you're getting your veges
add a piece of fruit to breakfast or lunch
Eat some: wholegrain bread, cereals, grains, starchy vegetables
Breads, cereals, grains and starchy vegetables are a staple food in many areas - choose the right type and amounts for heart health.
Eat some: milk, yoghurt, reduced-fat cheese
Eat some: nuts and healthy oils
It is better for our heart to eat plant-based fats and oils (except coconut and palm oils) instead of animal based fats and oils (eg. butter, meat fat).
