Improve quality of living with good food

Improve activity levels once your health begins to pick up. Include food with good nutrient value in your diet. Of course, exercise helps but if you are not overweight, then it is not essential. General thumb rule is reduce fats and increase fiber. Reason is fiber improves your digestion and enhances bowel movement.
