Our expert says:
Modern life can really impact on one's schedules and self care. I think what you need is to sit down and plan your food purchases carefully (make lists), so that you always have healthy, low-fat foods available that you can have for your main meals and snacks. Woolies has plenty of low-fat dishes that you can stock up on, without going overboard with sugar, fat, and kJ. One of the most valuable aids to good health is exercise and it is not necessary to go to a gym to achieve daily exercise which will also help you relax and defuse some of the stress. Probably one of the easiest ways of staying fit is to buy a skipping rope and to skip whenever you get a chance (in the mornings or evenings or even in your lunch break). Start slowly and gradually increase how much and how fast you skip until you are doing at least 30 min a day.
