Recognise What We’re Consuming

Some analysts and observers in the World Health Organization last year released a study showing that we do not need to do hours of daily exercise to maintain our health.  The study proves that a 30 minutes exercise five days a week which run simultaneously with healthy eating can go a long way in prolonging our life.  A few doctors in America, Europe and Africa agreed with the statement.

They also believe, the best exercise we should do is to accumulate about 30 minutes of moderate activity, like going for a brisk walk at least five days a week.  And, if we’re going to do a bit of vigorous work, about an hour and 15 minutes will do. This means 150 minutes of moderate activity each week is enough to reduce substantially the risks for cancer, cardio-vascular disease and lung disease.

One important thing which is also studied by experts is sitting time.  Interesting; isn’t it? And after a series of experiment they concluded that our sitting time should be minimised because they recognise that inactivity is becoming an independent risk factor for chronic disease.  

Health analysts say, there is evidence that shows that if we are fit, even if we are overweight, our risk of chronic disease is less than if we are normal weight and do no activity.  What they tell people is that if their job is sitting at their desk or behind a computer it is really important to get up during that working day, several times in an hour, and step away from the desk and take a walk in the passage.  Or, instead of emailing their colleague, they can go to their office with their feet

In addition to exercise, a healthy diet can do wonders.  That’s why, a dietician stresses that the consumers must know exactly what they are consuming.  For this purpose, any time we buy food product, we have to turn over the box of the product we are buying to take note of the nutritional information label.

L ook at the fibre content of any carbohydrate-rich foods because we want to make sure that we are generally going for high fibre products.  To be considered very high in fibre, a product should have, at least, 6 grams of fibre per 100 grams. That is relevant for products like cereals, crackers and bread. Fat content is detrimental to our health, so we’re aiming for things that contain less than 1.5 grams of saturated fat per 100 grams. The other one that is significant is the sugar, so the cut off there, should be less than 12.5 grams.
