Starting the morning with having healthy balanced breakfast keep you energetic and well balanced. Eating breakfast gives us the energy we need until lunchtime and can help to cut-down on snacking throughout the morning. But many of us are missing out, choosing breakfast options that are high in sugar or fat, or not having anything at all.

The following foods are all great ingredients for a healthy breakfast:

  • Fruit and vegetables: all fruit and vegetables that are fresh or in juice form are good for you.
  • Starchy foods: bread (especially wholemeal), rice and cereals (especially wholegrain) that are lower-sugar and lower-salt.
  • Milk and dairy: cheese, low-fat yoghurt and lower-fat milk.
  • Non-dairy protein: meat, fish, eggs, beans and unsalted nuts.

Some people skip breakfast in an effort to lose weight, but that's not a good idea. It can backfire. Skipping meals, especially breakfast, can actually make weight control more difficult. Breakfast skippers tend to eat more food than usual at the next meal, or nibble on high-calorie snacks to stave off hunger.

Some studies suggest that people tend to add more body fat when they eat fewer, larger meals than when they eat the same number of calories in smaller, more frequent meals.  Other studies show that weight management can be equally effective without breakfast .

While adults need to eat breakfast each day to perform their best, kids need it even more. Their growing bodies and developing brains need regular refueling often, from food. When kids skip breakfast, they don't get what they need to be at their best.

Short on time? Eating a wholesome, nutritious morning meal will probably save you time in the long run. By recharging the brain and body, you'll be more efficient in just about everything you do.

 

                                     

Regular exercise is an essential part of a heart-healthy lifestyle. Doing an activity that makes your heart beat faster and makes you feel slightly out of breath for 30 minutes every day will reduce your risk of obesity, diabetes and heart disease.

Regular exercise helps to

  • promote healthy cholesterol levels
  • lower high blood pressure
  • maintain a healthy weight
  • prevent blood clotting
  • control blood sugar levels in people with diabetes

you don't have to do your 30 minutes all at once, three sessions of 10 minutes are just as good.

Here are a few ideas to get you and your heart going;

  • dancing is a great form of exercise so get together with your family and friends and visit a bollywood dance class. If you're nervous about dancing in front of a room full of strangers, put you favourite songs and dance away in the comfort of your own home.
  • start your day with brisk walk or jog. You don't need any special sports clothes, just a comfortable pair of shoes
  • exercise classes like aerobics- visit your local leisure centre.
  • ball games like footwall and crickets are great fun, so get everyone involved.
  • swimming
  • gardening 
  • housework
  • jogging

Keep your dil khush

Remember, your heart is amazing and it works hard for you everyday. Reward it by following a heart-healthy lifestyle to keep it free from heart diseases.

 

Healthy heart, happy life
