Health & Fitness

Health and fitness is achieved through proper nutrition, physical activity, and sufficient rest. It is a measure of the body's ability to function effectively in work, to be healthy, and to resist diseases.

Staying healthy

All adults should avoid inactivity to promote good health mentally and physically.

For substantial health benefits, adults should participate in at least 150 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Aerobic activity should be performed in episodes of at least 10 minutes, and preferably, it should be spread throughout the week.

For additional and more extensive health benefits, adults should increase their aerobic physical activity to 300 minutes a week of moderate-intensity, or 150 minutes a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.

Additional health benefits are gained by engaging in physical activity beyond this amount.

Adults should also do muscle-strengthening activities that are moderate or high intensity and involve all major muscle groups on 2 or more days a week, as these activities provide additional health benefits.

Hi there, Thanks for your question and I can understand your frustration. The use of BMI to determine whether you are of ideal, over or obese body weight can be fraught with challenge as it doesn’t take into account habitus, muscle bulk etc. Some elite athletes are consid...

This Clinical Dietician Shares His Best Tips On How To Eat Healthier In Singapore

The phrase, "you are what you eat" should be taken literally. The food and drinks that you ingest have a direct impact on your health and well-being. 

Did you know that your body replaces almost 300 billion cells every day? The foods you consume are the source of building materials for these cells.

If your diet is constantly filled with foods that are low on nutrients, you're not giving our body much to work with. However, consistently maintaining strict diets or finding clean food can seem really challenging. So, what's the fix?

Dr Naras Lapsys, a clinical dietician, hosted an AMA session and answered a lot of reader questions on how to eat healthier in Singapore.

He has a PhD in molecular genetics, a master’s degree in nutrition and dietetics, and has had more than 14 years of experience in this field. Here's what you need to know.

You are right. Bell’s Palsy is not contagious, and cannot be transmitted. However, it’s usually caused by VIRUSES, which can be contagious. Herpes simplex virus activation is the likeliest cause of Bell’s palsy in most cases. Other possible viral causes inc...
