The key to good health is achieved using this formula:

DIET + EXERCISE = GOOD HEALTH

There’s a reason why diet is the first in this equation. The truth of the matter is that to achieve a fit and healthy body, you must focus on achieving the 70/30 ratio, 70% diet and 30% exercise.

The only problem with this is that we as Filipinos love to eat. Diet is like torture to us, and we will do everything so that we can enjoy food.

Here’s the good news! You can still be healthy even if you enjoy eating. We’ve listed some of the foods that you can eat as they are known to help you not only to become healthy, but these are foods that you will really enjoy!
