A New Year – A New You!

Health Matters – so make 2018 the year where you make small changes that could have a big impact on your life. Even minor changes to lifestyle can be sufficient to add years to your lifespan.

Most people know that a healthy lifestyle should consist of – eating well, exercising regularly and not smoking but making the necessary changes to our lives is notoriously difficult. Many people put off making the first few steps because they see the task as simply too much.

The message is; – no matter how small your healthy lifestyle and behavioural changes may seem to be (not smoking, regularly exercising, eating fruits and vegetables, and drinking alcohol moderately), if done consistently, they can make a real difference to your health in the long term.
This will be re-assuring for all those who have thought that lifestyle changes need to be dramatic or extreme to have any real benefit and have embarked on unrealistic and extreme exercise programmes, starving themselves in the name of dieting after the festive season only to return to their old habits just two months down the road.

Five healthier changes for 2018

physical activity by success-wealth-health1. Shake It – Stay active and do more physical activity.
Staying active is great for keeping your heart healthy and trimming off that fat. In order to stay healthy, adults aged 19-64 should do;
At least 150 minutes (2 hours and 30 minutes) of moderate-intensity aerobic activity such as cycling or fast walking every week, and muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups (legs, hips, back, abdomen, chest, shoulders and arms).

So make it part of your day to day routine; use the stairs instead of the lift, go for a walk or run at lunch or after work. Quit It – Make 2018 the year you quit the cigarettes for good.
Lots of people make the resolution to stop smoking at the start of the year but find it hard to kick the habit. Giving up smoking is probably the biggest single step you can take to improve your health. Click here to view our recommended

Smoking is responsible for one in every five deaths in adults aged over 35 in England, and half of all long-term smokers will die prematurely due to a smoking-related disease.
Giving up smoking increases your chances of living a longer and healthier life, even if you’ve smoked for 40 years.

Think about your life and that of your children if you have any or you are pregnant. Children whose parents smoke are more likely to suffer from asthma and other more serious illnesses.

The sooner you stop smoking, the better for you and your loved ones. Moderate It – take a break from booze
Join millions of people across the world who are trying to stop drinking alcohol during 2018. The alcohol unit guidelines are that men should not exceed 3-4 units per day and 2-3 units per day for women.
Alcohol misuse or excessive alcohol drinking of more than the recommended limits of alcohol consumption can lead to a number of harmful physical and psychological effects, such as alcohol poisoning, cirrhosis of the liver, inability to work and socialise, and destructive behaviours such as drink-driving.

Cutting back on alcohol will make you feel better, more energised and refreshed.

healthy EATING by success-wealth-health4. Eat It – cook and eat healthy meals for you and your family
Eating healthily is about eating the right amount of food for your energy needs. It is recommended that within a balanced diet, men should eat 2,500 calories a day, and 2,000 calories for women.

It’s easy to find no time or energy to cook or eat properly but eating well doesn’t need to take lots of time or effort.
Try and eat a healthy, well-balanced diet that includes at least five portions of fruit and vegetables a day. Cut down on fat and sugar, but don’t go on a crash diet. Regular small meals will keep up your energy without adding to your weight.

If you try to make eating well a priority in 2015 – it will make you feel better and stronger, and it’s important for the whole family too.

HEALTH CHECK by success-wealth-health5. MOT Your Body – Get a Regular Health Check
As you get older (If you are aged between 40-74) the body gets weaker and the risk of developing different serious illnesses such as high blood pressure, heart disease or diabetes becomes higher. Getting a regular health check (midlife MOT for your body), checking your blood pressure, cholesterol and BMI can help spot early signs of some illnesses or prevent them from occurring.

How To Eat Like A Celebrity And Not Get Fat!

When you see photos of Rihanna’s slim but glamorous silhouette or Jessica alba’s flat post-pregnancy tummy, you probably wondered how celebrities stay so lean or how do they always manage to snap back into shape in a blink of eye. Truth is some celebrities go to strange and outrageous lengths to get or stay thin even though most of them swear their perfect body comes from exercising and eating clean. It’s risky to just follow blindly with those alleged diet plans of celebrities.

But fret not! Because here are some legit useful and healthy tips quoted directly from A-list celebrity trainers that you could steal and not be wary of the risk!

Tips From Celebrity Trainers

1. Celebrities eat breakfast

Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson (trainer to Jennifer Lopez, Penelope Cruz, Leah Remini) introduced the idea of eating within 30 minutes of waking up in the morning. “You want to send your body a signal that you’re not starving so it starts burning fat,” says Peterson.

Try oatmeal, scrambled egg whites, fruits. These ingredients provide filling fibre, protein and vitamins. Research shows breakfast eaters are more successful at long-term weight loss as it helps jump-start your metabolism and prevents overeating throughout the day.

2. They pick their veggies

They’re taught by their trainers to be picky in what veggies they eat. Here’s a tip to slimming down a few inches for a be-seen event, Nutritionist Carrie Wiatt made famous singer Fergie stock up on watery veggies and fruits (lettuce, celery, cucumbers, watermelon, grapes) to help get rid of bloating as those veggies work by flushing out your system. Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, and pears lead to gas and bloating so if you’d like to be seen lean for the night, remember to avoid these right before an event.

3. They snack

Healthy snacks of course! Trainer Valerie Waters had her clients (Jennifer Garner, Elizabeth Berkley) carry 150-calorie snacks where they go. A few all-time favourite snack combos include apple slices with low-fat string cheese, a couple of crackers topped with chicken salad, or a few slices of turkey ham with fruits.

According to Valerie Waters, it’s important to eat something every three to four hours. Because you can go from feeling kind of hungry to thinking you’re starving badly as your blood sugar can drop quickly. Healthy snacking helps curb with your cravings and gives you instant energy boost to keep you satiated.

4. They don’t stop drinking

I hope you’re not thinking about alcohol.Drink water! Of course it’s water. They never stop drinking water. Celebrity trainer and nutritionist Harley Pasternak (whose clients include Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Megan Fox, Robert Downey Jr.) urges the importance of hydration. According to Pasternak, thirst can often be mistaken for hunger, so regularly sipping water through the day can keep excess calories off your plate – and your mouth.

3 Famous Celebrity Diet Plans

The 5-Factor Diet Created by nutritionist and celebrity fitness guru Harley Pasternak, the five factors consist of the element each meal should include – protein, complex carbs, fats, fiber, and fluids. This diet plan requires you to eat five meals a day with recipes no more than five ingredients. And guess what, you get one cheat day per week – where you’re allowed to eat anything you like. Celebrities like Eva Mendes, Alicia Keys, Megan Fox and Katy Perry are the followers of this diet.

The Zone Diet

Developed by former scientist Dr. Barry Sears, this diet involves obtaining 40% of your daily total caloric intake from carbohydrates, 30% from fats and 30% from carbs. Sears created this diet based on balancing the correct amount of amino acids with carbs, because it helps to control your appetite and prevent overeating. You are to eat three portion-controlled meals and two snacks a day. Famous Hollywood celebrity Jennifer Aniston was such a big fan of this diet, some even called it the “Jennifer Aniston Diet”.

Pressed Juicery

Pressed Juicery is a California-based company where its products are in general dense in nutrition, low in sugar, yet high in fibre and are proven to be a sensible way of consuming calories. It has been widely popular among celebrities to follow this six-juices-a-day, 1200-calorie intense cleanse. This Pressed Juicery diet is said to be a major bloat beater. Every morning you will receive a daily supply of juices delivered to your doorstep.

Each fresh, nutrient-packed drink is specially designed to replace meals and snacks. And you’re highly advised to avoid alcohol, caffeine, and nicotine in order to achieve a complete cleansing. Hollywood celebrity – and also a busy mom, Nicole Richie sips on these juices. “I drink these between meals to be sure I’m getting everything I need, I don’t go a day without a Greens Juice – kale, spinach, cucumber, celery and romaine. It’s actually really good!” says Richie.
