Most of us know that our body needs regular exercise and a balanced diet, it takes so much effort and commitment to stay healthy. This maybe challenging, especially if your job keeps you sedentary throughout the day or if your tight schedule leaves you with no choice but fast food and unhealthy snacks.
While it seems that you need to overhaul your lifestyle in order to be healthy, there are small changes you can make to overcome these challenges.
If exercise isn't currently a part of your life, you may want to try walking to work instead of riding a vehicle or taking the stairs instead of the elevator. Ten minutes of push-ups, squats and lunges a day can also help. What's important is that you stay on track and do it on a daily basis.
And instead of skipping meals then binge on snacks later on, eat five small meals divided throughout the day. Eat more fruits and vegetables or swap out processed white bread and pasta for the whole wheat variety to increase your fiber intake.
As recommended by the Philippine Food and Nutrition Research Institute, Filipino adults are recommended to consume 20 to 25 grams of dietary fiber daily. 1 If you find it difficult to include fiber-rich food in your daily diet, you can consider taking dietary fiber supplements like Metamucil®, the World’s #1 Selling Fiber Supplement2 made with 100% natural psyllium fiber, to help you meet your fiber goals.
A few weeks ago, Metamucil hosted a Less Guilt Food Trip event held at Mercato Centrale where they treated guest on a food binge that would challenge the way you consume food with a promise of not having to feel guilty the next day by taking Metamucil.
Their Brand Ambassador, Maricel Laxa-Pangilinan was also present during the event as she shares how Metamucil gives her the much needed daily fibre.
Psyllium is a great source of fiber from the husk of the seeds of the plant Plantago Ovata, providing four health benefits: helps promote digestive health, helps lower cholesterol to promote heart health*, helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels as part of a healthy diet, and helps you feel less hungry between meals.
Metamucil® comes in two flavors Orange Smooth and Wild Berry. To enjoy Metamucil, simply add 5.8 grams of Metamucil (approximately 1 1/2 teaspoons) to at least 250 ml of liquid. Stir briskly and drink promptly. Drink plenty of water.
