My Story

Running my first marathon

More than any other fitness or sporting activity, running is what I enjoy most. It’s very good for your health, and provides a great workout, strengthening and toning your muscles. I believe most importantly, running is a good way to lose weight and generally get fitter.

Reduce salt in your diet

Hence we are  a nation(not to point fingers at anyone)that is bit more liberal than many when it comes to salt, this puts many of us at higher risk of strokes and heart disease. According to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, if we decrease our salt intake to 5 grams per day, we reduce our risk of heart disease by up to 80%. This means decreasing our salt intake in foods such as bread, margarine, butter, stock cubes, soup powders, flavourings, spices, breakfast cereals and convenient snacks that are all big culprits.
