Tips to Avoid Obesity and Diabetes

weightlossAs diabetes and obesity are the top killer diseases in UAE, Dubai-based fitness guru, model and TV presenter Rania Gamal provides HEALTH with six healthy tips to help lead a healthier lifestyle.

Tip 1: Surround yourself with good influencers

For a starter, it would be easier to find the road to fitness if you surround yourself with people who encourage you to be fit and healthy. It will be more beneficial if all your friends are in the same boat with the same goal as you.

Tip 2: Forget about sugar

Since the birth of sugar in United Kingdom in 1099, the rate of chronic and avoidable metabolic conditions like obesity, diabetes, and heart disease has climbed steadily. If you are craving to
sweeten your coffee or tea, it is much better to use honey.

Tip 3: Exercise in any way possible

We might give many excuses on why we cannot go to the gym, but there will never be a valid reason not to exercise. In the morning, you can do even a 30-minute walk before you go to work or
in the afternoon, try some stretching during your break time. In the evening, tune in to hundreds of workout videos on YouTube, which you can do at home.

Tip 4: Water is the answer

Our body is made up of around 60 percent water and it is the only drink that will help you dissolve chemicals in your body including toxins and it also increases your metabolism. Drink two glasses of water after you wake up, before you take your breakfast as it is one of the secrets of nutritionists.

Tip 5: Fiber is your friend forever

Fiber will help you normalize your bowel movement and will lower your cholesterol levels. Look for food with high fiber on the box. A high-fiber whole grain intake is also connected to lowering
rates of stroke, high blood pressure, breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.

Tip 6: Do not sit down after a meal

There are many people who sit down after a meal or worse, they eat while they watch a TV series for three hours and they think it is a small issue. It is a habit that affects both your heart and your
weight and it is better to stand or walk mildly, do not run or walk hastily as it could also be the cause of appendicitis.
