30 minutes of activity brings benefits even in older age
A study found that enjoying 30 minutes of physical activity a day—even well into our 60s and 70s—can increase longevity and is as good for our health as quitting smoking.
Slimming World has a unique approach to activity called Body Magic. When members feel ready, we support them in integrating any activity they enjoy into their everyday lives until it becomes a habit, and part of their healthy lifestyle. Along with Food Optimizing, our generous, hunger-free eating plan, Slimming World members have the tools and support they need to make and keep their healthy changes going for life.
Member Nicola Roberts says she always felt like fit person trapped in an overweight body. 100lbs lighter, she's now able to take on all kinds of activity—including running a full marathon!
I have tons of energy, and I feel like my food fuels me now, instead of weighing me down. I've run a half and a full marathon now, and I never ever thought I'd be able to say that! I didn't work out before starting Slimming World, and now I love to exercise.

Is your teen getting enough of this nutrient?
Blood pressure is something that can be controlled by diet, and a study found that teens who have a diet high in potassium—rather than one low in salt—can be more effective for avoiding high blood pressure as adults.
Potassium is found in a wide range of healthy, wholesome foods, like baked potatoes (regular or sweet), dark leafy greens, beans, yogurt, and, of course, bananas!
All these foods are called Free Foods with Slimming World, meaning they can be eaten freely—no counting of calories or measuring out portions whatsoever! Whether you're following Slimming World yourself or you'd just like to encourage healthy eating habits for your teen—and your whole family!—you can rest assured that eating Slimming World-style includes plenty of potassium, and all the nutrients needed for a healthy life.
