As an adult, your health comes first. We’ve put together a list of helpful tips that will help you stay fit, healthy and improve your overall health.
- Limit sugary drinks
bad drinks refer to drinks with added sugar. Includes sugary drinks, minerals, sports and energy drinks, barley juice, nutritious drinks and coffee and sweetened tea or syrup added to them. They do not include the types of drinks that are labeled ‘sugar-free’ or those that contain artificial ingredients. Since so much sugar is ‘hidden’ inside the food we buy, it is easy to underestimate the amount of sugar we consume in a day. For an adult with a healthy body weight it is recommended that no more than 30 grams of extra sugar or free sugar be consumed per day. One teaspoon is about 4 grams of sugar, so the recommendation is no more than 6 teaspoons a day. To put this in perspective, current statistics suggest that adults consume 59 grams of sugar per day. Most of the sugar we eat comes from foods and beverages such as cold drinks, cakes, biscuits, sugar, jam, dairy products and alcohol. Sugary drinks take up a quarter of your daily sugar intake.

Heavy lifting, for example using a weight that you can only do for 1 to 6 reps at a time, made me struggle with the word in my head – it is more stressful than any weight we can have. With heavy plates in the bar, there is no room for confidence or negative thoughts. It takes all my focus to go up, stay in control, and crush the lift.
