Making informed decisions is crucial to improving eating habits, according to Dr. Dapaalong, who made this statement during an interview for Asempa FM Ekosii Sen’s “Beginning the Year Right series 2024.”
“Cutting down on foods high in salt, free sugars, saturated fats, and trans-fatty acids may seem overwhelming initially, but these changes can significantly impact your well-being,” he advised.
He advocated eating a balanced diet that includes whole grains, legumes, and nuts in addition to increasing the amount of veggies in meals.
Dr. Dapaalong emphasized that significant improvements in general health can be achieved by implementing modest but meaningful adjustments to everyday routines and behaviors.
Additionally, Dr. Dapaalong offered advice on how to save important organs, especially the heart.
“Every normal being’s heart pumps regularly. The heavier you are, the more pressure you put on your organs. Monitoring your weight is essential to avoid undue pressure on vital organs, especially the kidneys. A healthy balanced diet is crucial. Limiting glucose intake and maintaining a normal general eating habit are critical steps toward overall well-being” he explained.
Dr. Dapaalong therefore encouraged individuals to commit to small steps in changing daily routines and habits, as these adjustments can significantly benefit their health in 2024.
