5 Ways to get our health back on track!

Eat a balanced diet.  It seems obvious but after overindulging, jumping on the latest fad diet to get us back on track could seem tempting. Choosing to eat a balanced diet containing all the major food groups (protein, starchy carbohydrates, dairy products and fruits and vegetables) is more likely to succeed long term. If we don’t know where to start, let’s just make one small change (such as a portion of vegetables with your lunch and dinner) or let’s seek advice from a registered dietician.

Cut back on alcohol.  People often underestimate how much beer, wine and spirits they consume each week and, over time, this can damage the liver among other health problems. Too much alcohol can cause cirrhosis (scarring of the liver) and when this organ becomes full of scar tissue it becomes defunct. Look how beautiful she looks after cutting back on alcohol. Imagine what not she will look after giving up completely!

 

If we smoke, let’s give up. The numerous risks of smoking include liver damage from harmful chemicals, which increase the risk of liver cancer. There are offered services from the health organization/Government to help us quit smoking, if we need!

Boost our fruit and vegetable intake.  It seems obvious but the majority of us do not eat at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Fresh, tinned or frozen all count and are rich in vitamins, minerals and fibre. If we’ve overindulged, we’ll be lacking these nutrients so we’ll need to replenish our stores. If we want to make a fruit and vegetable juice or smoothie, let’s do it. But we also need to make sure that we eat a balanced diet alongside it.

Get active.  150 minutes of moderate activity (such as a brisk walk) or 75 minutes of vigorous activity (such as a game of squash) a week will help keep the liver and the rest of our body healthy. Exercise improves the circulation of blood to the liver, helping to regulate and process toxic substances faster. Exercise helps circulate blood to the liver, helping it cleanse the body.
