Living active and Health goes far beyond specifically avoiding illness.
Current studies indicate that several factors influence health:
Family and professional relationships,
The environment in which it is inserted,
Emotional and spiritual conditions.
When there is an imbalance in these factors, people tend to get sick more easily.
Experts say the key to a healthy lifestyle is not just a healthy diet, or just a physical exercise.
Behavioral issues need to be assimilated also in maintaining a healthy life.
The key is to achieve the balance between physical, mental, social and spiritual well-being.
Expert Opinion for a Healthy Lifestyle
We interviewed the general practitioner and nephrologist, Dr. José Neto, who will bring revealing tips on Healthy Living.
(Living Active and Healthy) What are the main habits to be changed today to achieve a healthier life?
I believe the pillars of a healthy life are: food based on real food, proper hydration, regular physical activity (prioritizing strength exercises), restful sleep and mental health control.
There is no miracle! Specific foods with almost magical appeal and supplementation are not the solution to a healthy and fulfilling life.
Is there a right age to start worrying about a Healthy Lifestyle in the pursuit of longevity?
This concern already begins at conception. Since the intrauterine period, mother's behaviors reflect on fetal health. Increasingly, the first 1000 days of life are valued (conception up to 2 years); that is, healthy lifestyle has no age.
What is Healthy Diet?
The understanding of healthy diet is very much associated with the image of low fat and eating of 3/3 hours. The overvaluation of nutrition with overvaluation of macronutrients must be replaced by a search for real food where there is minimal processing of food.
Low carb strategies have been growing in popularity, being an excellent alternative for treating people with metabolic syndrome. Stratospheric numbers and variable clinical presentation in the form of obesity, type 2 diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure), dyslipidemia (changes in cholesterol and triglycerides), hepatic steatosis (fat in the liver) characterize this pandemic.
Although the reduction in carbohydrates is a great strategy, the foundation remains the real food.
