7 Top Fitness Tips

1. Make sure that you are eating a balanced diet with lots of fibre and a good variety of fruit and vegetables. Vegetables can taste good! Look online for some healthy and tasty recipes.

2. Getting sufficient sleep is essential for your body to recover from training, which means at least 7.5 hours every night. Put you health ahead of your social calendar!

3. Work within your limits. Over training can lead to minor injuries and these can lead to more serious problems later on.

4. Take a probiotic supplement to keep your immune system going. Choose a high quality, sugar-free supplement with sufficient “live” bacteria. Dr Mouton recommends the UK company, OptiBac Probiotics.

5. Drinking fluids before, during and after exercise is key to keeping your body hydrated and thus balanced at all times, which helps protect against muscle strain. Water is also good for flushing out pathogens and boosting the immune system, for improving skin health, and for improving energy and concentration levels.

6. Be careful when drinking any sugary drinks because these can cause yeasts & pathogens to multiply and cause an imbalance in your gut. People tend to eat far too much sugar these days; the body cannot cope with high levels of sugar.

7. Wear the right gear, especially when doing exercise. Trainers that don’t support your feet correctly can cause injuries. If your feet over-pronate (roll inwards) make sure you wear an orthotic insole to correct foot alignment.
