In recent years there has been a rise in the number of people who have gone on to develop disorders such as obesity,
heart disease and other concerning ailments which could have otherwise been prevented. Our increasingly fast paced and stressful lifestyle has lead to a mentality where we want to eat quickly and conveniently, leading to a diet consisting of fast food and inferior quality ready meals. It is with this in mind that people understandably ask themselves what they can do to live a longer and happier life?
The majority of people living in western countries live off diets which are rich in fat however
it is comforting to know that people who live in different cultures and civilisations still go on to live long lives. There are examples of tribes who live off mostly plants with a little meat and perhaps a bit of fish and wild game meat. There are many people living in societies such as these who have gone on to live up to 120 years old. These people all have one thing in common: they all exercised regularly and ate a lot of plant food and drank a lot of water as they didn't have the 'luxury' of fizzy drinks or fast food.
A teaspoon of salt contains approximately 2,300mg of sodum
. This is the maximum recommended daily intake of salt. Many health analysts have contended that a typical restaurant meal may provide you with 1,500-2,000mg of sodium so you can see how easily you will exceed your daily intake if you don't think carefull about what you are eating. Ensuring that you keep to below this 2,300mg limit of sodium can help to preserve your health, helping you to live a little longer.
It can never be overstated how important a regular intake of water is to maintaining a healthy lifestyle
. Not only does water cool the body but it allows more oxygen to be dellivered to all of the cells in the body, improving the efficiency in the way organs and muscles work. Because people consist mostly of water which evaporates regularly it is important that we keep ourselves 'topped up' on a regular basis. It is recommended that the average adult should consume eight glasses of water each day.
A low calorie diet is supported by a great deal of scientific evidence to show that it can contribute to a longer and healthier life
. Scientists stress that people who make a point of following a calorie controlled diet are much less likely to die from age related illnesses such as high blood pressure, strok or heart disease. The also have an improved ability for clear decision making as well as making controlled movements thanks to a larger brain capacity.
On the whole you can help yourself to live a longer life by using common sense.
If you watch what you eat and cut down on fatty foods which are high in calories and combine this with regular daily exercise then you should start to see the benefits in a relatively short amount of time. This will go on to impact your health in the long run.
