I can help. Hi! My name is Larry Lewis, I’m the Founder & Owner of Healthy Lifestyles Living.
My passion is helping people feel better!
I know what its like to suffer from ill health. After a series of retinal detachments and many operations I was in a very bad physical and mental state and went from a gym obsessed body builder to an overweight, high blood pressure sedentary sick person.
It was a hard road back to good health, with a massive learning curve. I was desperate to reclaim my health and begin to feel better and not be so tired all the time. Now I love feeling great, being happy and having all the energy I need for my family, to work and to play. My aim is to save you a lot of time and research by giving you the key lifestyle changes you need to make.
You can reclaim good health through making lifestyle changes, not just get through due to an unhealthy dependency on medication.Larry Lewis
To take charge of your health, feel better, and take back the control of your life then you’ll want to implement these really simple lifestyle changes.
Truly this is good news for you. The power to reclaim your health rests in your own hands.
Today I am simply going to draw your attention to 5 key lifestyle changes that very much will effect your health.
We are talking diet, hydration, movement, stress and sleep. Get these 5 areas right and you will go a long way to improving your health. A healthy lifestyle can change everything!
DIET to reclaim your Health
I start with probably what will be the most difficult change for many of you. It was for me. After a lifetime of believing that I was eating well, and often having a diet mainly consisting of protein, filling myself with all forms of red meat and chicken, I came to learn about the dangers to your health from eating animal flesh and organs. In fact a lot of research demonstrated to me that anyone wanting to reclaim good health needed to adopt a plant based diet, preferably a vegan diet. A vegan diet refers to a diet that does not consume animal products or any animal-derived products, such as eggs, milk, cheese, and any other kinds of dairy products. Vegans base their nutrition on plant-based foods only, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts loaded with the essential vitamins and minerals that are good for your body.
Alternatively, if you aren’t willing to go to that extreme, adopt a largely plant-based diet with protein from fish, skinless poultry, nuts, legumes, and small amounts of lean meats which can also open the door to reclaim good health just not as fast or impacting as going Vegan
It is also important to keep your fat content of meals low, my suggestion is no meal should really exceed 10 grams of fat. Cutting down animal products will of course help but you still have to watch out for some of the high fat plant foods like avocado.
Also, its important is to choose foods in forms that are as close as possible to the way they came from nature. An apple, for example, is a better choice than an apple cake. Whole-grain bread trumps white bread, which is made from flour that is stripped of the outer casing of the wheat berry.
Try to avoid processed foods, made in factories by human beings which are often infused with added salt, sugar, and fat. Avoiding these added ingredients is another important goal for those who want to eat for health.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.Albert Einstein
Try to implement at least a mainly plant based diet and begin to reclaim good health. Seriously this is a life changer.
HYDRATION to reclaim your health
Did you know that a human body is composed of over 60% of water? This fact should be your motivation to achieve drinking at least 8 glasses of water every day. Try and drink at least 2 litres of water every single day.
The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) recommends an intake of 2.5 litres of water for men and 2.0 litres of water for women per day, via food and drink consumption, of which at least 70-80% of the daily water intake should come from drinks, and the remaining 20-30% should come from food.
Water is life’s matter and matrix, mother and medium. There is no life without water.Albert Szent-Gyorgyi
Water is essential for life and it is very important to get the right amount of fluid to be healthy.
Water plays a significant role in your body as it serves as an avenue in carrying out body functions, delivering nutrients and oxygen, and removing waste in your body. Your body depends on water to survive. Every cell, tissue, and organ in your body needs water to work properly. Hence, you need water as it plays various functions in your various organ systems. Apart from replenishing our body, drinking water contributes to weight loss as well. It is also essential for good health. Such an easy change yet so many of you struggle with it. You must try and do this. When you are thirsty drink water. Don’t straight away go for tea, coffee, high sugar sodas or diet drinks. Make your first option always water.
After a natural disaster, safe drinking water is a priority. Humans can live longer without food than water, so communication about clean water is essential to help avoid the risk of cholera, dysentery, malnutrition, famine, and death.Tae Yoo
MOVEMENT to reclaim your health
This is simply a must do, and is something every human being has to find a way to exercise. In truth it is no hardship, well at least not for most of us. We are talking about movement, and in this you can include swimming or walking. We have so many options open to us. Dancing, playing sport working out in the garden, cutting, mowing, weeding.
“If you don’t make time for exercise, you’ll probably have to make time for illness.”Robin Sharma
To stay healthy, adults need to be active daily and should do at least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity such as cycling or brisk walking every week. One way you can achieve 150 minutes of weekly physical activity is to do 30 minutes on 5 days a week.
If you currently don’t exercise and aren’t very active during the day, any increase in exercise or physical activity is good for you.Some studies show that walking briskly for even one to two hours a week (15 to 20 minutes a day) starts to decrease the chances of having a heart attack or stroke, developing diabetes, or dying prematurely.
Aerobic physical activity helps to protect and maintain heart, lung and circulatory health, thereby reducing your risk of ill health as well as enhancing your mental health and wellbeing and helping you to maintain a healthy body weight.
“To enjoy the glow of good health, you must exercise.”Gene Tunney
STRESS MANAGEMENT to reclaim your Health
Stress plays a big part with health problems.
Stress is wreaking havoc in many people’s lives. So many of you face multiple demands each day, with the pressures from work, paying the bills and taking care of your family. Stress comes from every where. Too much stress can be really destructive causing emotional problems, relationship difficulties, and physical problems.
Bills, work, family, friends, diet, sleep—there are a million reasons stress piles on. But if your stress response can’t stop firing, your body will begin to break down.
“Its not stress that kills us, it is our reaction to it.”Hans Selye
In the long-term, stress may contribute to heart problems, nutritional deficits that impact conditions such as stomach ulcers, indigestion, irregular blood sugar regulation and digestive problems. Stress can also increase risk of metabolic problems, such as obesity and Type 2 diabetes.
Are you taking on too much? Are there things you are doing which could be handed over to someone else? You need to make adjustments to your every day life, prioritise things you are trying to achieve and reorganise your so you are not trying to do too much.
Stress management strategies include:
Practicing relaxation techniques such as trying yoga, practicing deep breathing, getting a massage or learning to meditate
Taking time for hobbies, such as reading a book or listening to music
Try mindfulness – studies have found mindfulness can help reduce stress and improve your mood
Listen to relaxing music
Follow the offer mentioned lifestyle changes because they contribute to your stress management.
“In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive.”Lee Iacocca
SLEEP to reclaim your health
“I think the best way to get a good night sleep is to work hard throughout the day. If you work hard and, of course, work out.”William H. McRaven
Night night time to go to bed. Get those 8 hours of deep sleep which will really help you to reclaim your health. This is one of those lifestyle changes that we talk about but very rarely see it as important. So many of you go to bed late and struggle to wake up in the morning. Worse still lots of people seem to find a good night sleep impossible. They spend very restless nights, struggling to get to sleep and even when they do finding themselves waking up multiple times.
What would it feel like to wake up feeling your best, to have loads of energy, to finally feel in control of your health and make healthier decisions for yourself?
One of those decisions has to be to do your upmost to get 8 hours of sleep nightly. You may have to make other adjustments to help you get undisturbed sleep. Make sure your room is totally dark at night, mattress comfortable, and pillow relaxing. Try to avoid bright screens at least an hour before bed, and don’t drink at least 2 hours before bed time.
“Sleep is an investment in the energy you need to be effective tomorrow.”Tom Roth
You need to make sleep a priority.
