The study looked at many different types of exercise which included walking, running, house work, and going for a workout in the gym.Keeping your overall bodyweight to what yours should be is probably one of the best ways to ensure that you don’t get this disease, here are some tips as well as regarding what you should be eating diet wise.
Try and avoid too much processed red meat, things like sausages have far more fat in them than they used to, cut down on the amount of burgers or hotdogs that you eat. Make sure you get the recommended daily amount of fibre per day which is 25 grams per day.
It has been estimated that a lot of us eat no where near the amount of fibre that we should be eating per day. So all in all another thumbs up for exercise again.
