It is so so so important to not be a couch potato and exercise for a decent amount of time everyday!
Exercising can be anything – playing with your kids, swimming, yoga, playing a sport or even just going for a walk everyday.

So move your back off the couch if it tends to stay there for too long and start exercising regularly to keep illnesses away.
Food – not just things to satisfy cravings but the means of changing your life. This is something we, at Scientific Nutrition, firmly believe in.
