Empowering You Through Knowledge

Hi there!

Thank you for visiting my blog. If you have landed here, most likely you are looking at ways to improve your wellbeing because you care about your health. Well done for taking the time to make health your priority!

As a fitness blogger my top priority is equipping you with the right knowledge and skills so you can achieve optimal health. Knowledge is the first step to empowering you to take control of your health. Without information, we have no awareness of the dangers (and also benefits) that surround us. Without knowledge we can’t take the necessary steps to a healthy, happy long life.

The Internet is a vast ocean of information which can be difficult to navigate. This is why I have launched a new Curated Content page, where I pool together interesting and verified research and articles from world of health & fitness.

Here’s a snippet of what you’ll find on the new page:

Do you believe that the food you eat can directly impact how long you live? It has been long debated, but new research not only proves that this is true, but also shows exactly how the link between food and longevity works.

Here are some excerpts from Dr Michael Greger’s article in the Daily Mail:

Many people assume the diseases that kill us are pre-programmed into our genes. High blood pressure by 55, heart attacks at 60, maybe cancer at 70, and so on . . . But for most of the leading causes of death, our genes usually account for only 10–20 per cent of risk.
The other 80-90 per cent of risk? It’s our diet and lifestyle. The typical Western diet is the number-one cause of premature death and the number-one cause of disability. In other words, a long and healthy life is largely a matter of choice.

However, there is something you can do about it…

But adhering to just four simple healthy lifestyle factors can have a strong impact on the prevention of chronic diseases: not smoking, not being obese, getting half an hour of exercise a day, and eating more healthily (defined as consuming more fruits, vegetables and whole grains and less meat).
