Do you always feel tired, or do you always feel like losing focus or concentration?
Did you know? According to the latest survey, around 27 million Filipinos are overweight or obese. If these numbers continue to rise, it is projected that by 2030, more than 30% of Filipino will be in that category. The increasing rate in this number is alarming since our diet affects our physical body, mental health, and emotional well-being.
In line with the celebration of nutrition month and in a world where a healthy lifestyle is increasingly becoming important, we present ways in which we can continue to stay in shape without sacrificing much of our time (CBB). Here are 3 TIPS to help you:
EAT PROTEIN, FAT, AND VEGETABLES
Never be afraid to include vegetables and fruits in your meals as they are loaded with nutrients. Not only do they help you improve your immune system, but you can also consume large amounts without worrying about calories and carbs.
SLEEP IS JUST AS IMPORTANT AS EATING A BALANCED, NUTRITIOUS DIET AND EXERCISING
Most people think they can achieve a healthy diet and wellness just by eating nutritious food and exercising.

Research suggests that you should get 7-9 hours of sleep every day to achieve optimal health.
