Join me as I tour the Versace Dessert table explaining which are the healthy options and which are not and why.
Chocolate with a cocoa content of over 70% is generally regarded as being nutritious with claims of helping to lower cholesterol, lowering blood pressure and being packed with anti oxidants. Of course, these benefits are only seen when eaten in strict moderation as too much can have an adverse effect on the body, causing weight gain, lethargy and other medical illnesses.
So next time you’re at the dessert table looking at your options, think with your mind rather than your tummy so that both your body and heart will be happy.
Please remember to always eat treats sensibly as part of a full healthy balanced diet and an active lifestyle.
Thanks for watching and if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to leave me a comment in the comments section below or pop by and see me in clinic.
Did you know that almost 2 in 3 Australians are overweight or obese. Having a large waistline increases your risk of heart disease which is currently the leading cause of death in Australia. Men should aim for a waistline of under 37 inches and women under 31.5 inches.
Making changes to reduce your waist can be simple and easy. Start by picking up the pace when you’re shopping for groceries or switch your midday donut for a healthy apple and ditch the weekly takeaway for a monthly treat.
Let’s change the statistics and beat obesity together. 💪
