Geelong has an adult population of 160,000. And our health, as a community, is not looking that great. According to Healthy Together Geelong, 56% of us are overweight or obese and a whopping 95% of us do not eat the recommended 5-6 serves of vegetables per day. Over half of us drink alcohol at risky levels for our health and 19.2% consume sugar-sweetened drinks every single day. There are about sixteen teaspoons of sugar in a 600ml bottle of regular soft drink so that cumulative effect of sugar consumption of weeks and years is a serious problem.
Fourteen percent or 22,400 adults in Geelong experience high levels of psychological distress including feeling nervous, hopeless, restless, sad and worthless and only 68% of us exercise enough daily. 30-60minutes of moderate to vigorous physical exercise daily is recommended (source: Department of Health 2011-12 Victorian Population Health Survey).
A healthy lifestyle reduces the risk of preventable chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. It promotes better mental health and healthy weight management, improved concentration, higher energy levels, immunity and overall wellbeing.
How Well Are You Ageing?
The vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients in our food are integral to the functioning of every cell in your body. If they are readily available in the body then your cells can draw upon them in times of need to work optimally. The result: – increased energy and stamina, focus and clarity, elevated mood and vitality.
If however we have a diet high in sugar, processed foods, preservatives and unhealthy fats, the way we function is compromised because these foods actually deplete us. They don’t contain the necessary nutrients that each cell requires to function. So we suffer the side effects of tiredness, low energy, lack of concentration, lowered mood, weight gain and preventable chronic illness.
