Healthy Eating

A healthy, balanced diet is an essential element for overall good health, and can reduce your risk of developing a number of Scotland’s leading chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. If you are overweight, losing weight, and keeping it within a healthy range, can work wonders for your health.

Obesity is a major health concern, and through it’s effects costs thousands of people a year their lives in Scotland.

If you are concerned about your diet, or would like to lose weight, the healthy eating diet sheet linked below could help:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alcohol Consumption

While there is some evidence that alcohol in moderation can have certain beneficial effect for your health, drinking over the recommended limits can be harmful, and heavy or binge drinking can increase your risk of developing liver problems, stomach disorders, mental health problems, sexual difficulties, high blood pressure, obesity, some cancers, as well as a host of other problems.

The recommended limits are 3 units/day for men and 2 units/day for women, with 2 alcohol free days per week.

For more information on how to drink responsibly, and still maintain a healthy lifestyle, you can read the pdf leaflets linked below:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Get Active

Regular exercise is an important part of a healthy lifestyle, and it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to join a gym. Even walking at a brisk pace for 30 minutes a day can improve your health and fitness, as well as doing wonders for your mental wellbeing.

Studies show that walking can:

· Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke

· Lower blood pressure

· Reduce high cholesterol and improve blood lipid profile

· Reduce body fat

· Enhance mental well being

· Increase bone density, hence helping to prevent osteoporosis

· Reduce the risk of cancer of the colon

· Reduce the risk of non insulin dependant diabetes

· Help to control body weight

· Help osteoarthritis

· Help flexibility and co-ordination hence reducing the risk of falls
