Your body needs the right vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients to stay in good shape. A healthy diet means you are eating fruits, vegetables, whole grains, low-fat milk products, fish, poultry, lean meats, eggs, beans and nuts. Stay away from cholesterol-laden items, excessive sodium and added sugars. It is also important to avoid trans and saturated fats.
Build physical activity into your life. Start at a comfortable level, and once you get the hang of it, add a little more activity each time you exercise You should include aerobic activity as well as strengthening exercises (sit-ups, push-ups and weightlifting). Physical activity increases your chances of living longer; helps control your blood pressure, blood sugar and weight; raises your “good” cholesterol; and can prevent heart disease, colorectal cancer and type 2 diabetes.
