Nutrition for Active Individuals
Eating is a "hobby" for many Singaporeans but are we eating correctly?
Eating the right foods and in sufficient quantity is necessary to maintain good nutritional status and therefore good health. However, exercise is also important; in fact diet and exercise go hand-in-hand. Individuals who are physically active have special needs. The talk covers practical pointers on how and what one should eat to improve the results of his or her exercise program.
Obesity is on the rise, along with its related health problems like hypertension and diabetes. There are many seeking to lose weight for health and aesthetic reasons, perhaps prompting the rise in advertisements of slimming programs, pills, and diets. Unfortunately, false claims are common, along with practices that are either ineffective or dangerous. This talk clears the misconceptions and false beliefs, and it describes an evidence-based, scientific, effective, proven and safe approach to losing weight. The talk will also focus on the numerous benefits related to regular exercise, including reduced risk of the lifestyle diseases, improved functional capacity, reduced stress, and a general sense of well-being.
