How to Create Healthy Eating Habits

One of the most important things one can do to protect their health is to have a balanced meal. A healthy and balanced meal is essential for proper growth and development during childhood and adolescence. It can also help prevent chronic diseases.

About 80% of premature heart disease and stroke can be prevented through your life choices and habits, such as a healthy diet and daily exercise. The World Health Organization says, “A healthy diet is essential for good health and nutrition. It protects you against many chronic non-communicable diseases.”

A balanced diet starts with vegetables, white meat, and healthy carbs. Eating a well nutritious diet can help maintain your weight, improve your sleep quality, and lower your blood pressure. By following Lively Habits, you can improve your wellness and build healthy habits for life.

Chronic diseases — such as diabetes, cancer, asthma, and heart disease — are the leading causes of death and disability. The United States spends $4 trillion (around $12,000 per person) annually on healthcare, and more than 75% went to treating the rising prevalence of chronic diseases. Fortunately, Harvard School of Public Health, and Stanford Center on Longevity’s evidence-based research proved that building healthy lifestyle habits can prevent chronic disease, extend longevity, and improve quality of life.

The Liu Charitable Foundation thus devoted the charitable Lively Habits App and a series of Lively Habits Video intended to educate, motivate, and condition personal behavior change by integrating 10 evidence-based lifestyle habits to benefit public health for a low-cost and low-maintenance healthy life.
