HEALTHY LIVING:: Most of us know how, we just don’t

Most of us may know how to live healthily, but very few of us actually do so. One study of 153,000 American adults discovered that just 3 per cent were following the four ‘healthy lifestyle characteristics’ (HLCs) that supposedly determine healthy living. They are: nonsmoking, healthy weight as defined by a body/mass index of between 18.5 and 25, eating five or more vegetables and fruits a day, and exercise of at least 30 minutes five days a week.
Of those questioned, 76 per cent were non-smokers, 40 per cent had a healthy weight, 23 per cent ate five fruits and vegetables a day, and 22 per cent took regular exercise, but just 3 per cent carried out all four.
