The World Healthy Organisation is marking its annual World Health Day today by issuing a call for action on diabetes. WHO is highlighting the need to step up prevention and treatment of the disease. The number of people living with diabetes has almost quadrupled since 1980 to 422 million adults, with most living in developing countries. Although there are three main types of diabetes it is Type 2 which accounts for the vast majority of people living with diabetes globally, and is largely the result of excess body weight and physical inactivity. Wanting to transform my own health, I have largely cut out over-processed and high-sugar foods and is the inspiration behind my cookbook, Eat Clean: Wok Yourself to Health. All my recipes are measured for 1 person with all the macro information you need to track calories and macro nutrients, namely the carbs, fats etc. This is also the case for all the recipes on my website too. Hopefully it will make it easier to calculate exactly what we are consuming. Keeping on top of portion control is an easy way to keep on top of your diet, especially if you don’t regularly exercise. However, it is best to combine a healthy diet with exercise - even fitting in at least 10,000 steps a day can really help. It’s never easy but I really believe that we can eat our way to good health!
