“Food is your medicine, and medicine is your food” ~ Hippocrates
If you have had some health problems and your doctor has advised you to change your eating patterns – you’ve come to the right place. Liveto100 gives you the latest in the essentials of what to eat more or less of – so you can confidently add healthy eating habits to your other wellbeing strategies. When we talk about ‘eating well’ we mean eating for health, now and into the future. The rest is up to you.
Healthy eating is a choice – your choice. Once you've made the decision to change, it helps to have an understanding of what food actually is and what it delivers to your body.
Eating from a wide variety of foods, in sensible portions, ensures you get all the nutrients you need without endangering your health.
On most food packaging in New Zealand you will find a list of ingredients, a nutrition information panel and possibly some nutrition claims. We explain what these mean and what to look out for.
Weight control can be a complex subject, but we take a simple look at the balance of energy. Whether you want to gain weight, lose it or just stay as you are, liveto100 gives great tips to help.
Your gastrointestinal tract - or gut or digestive system - is more than a tube extending from mouth to anus. It plays lots of important roles in your health. Look after it!
As a nation, we like to eat out; it's fast, delicious and often quite affordable. But, if you consider the consequences of eating away from home, you might like to choose where you eat more carefully or give this activity a 'treat' status.
