We will be continuing our 'Topic of the Month' series throughout 2017 and our first topic of the year for January will be, 'Diet and Healthy Eating'.
The start of a New Year is frequently a time when people try to make improvements to their lifestyle and wellbeing, so we thought it would be a good time to discuss this topic.
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle and managing your lupus. Combined with physical activity, your diet can help you to reach and maintain a healthy weight, reduce your risk for other potential diseases (like heart disease and cancer), and promote your overall health.
We’d really love to hear if you have any tips for having a good diet and eating healthily. Do you have any good techniques for sticking to your chosen diet? Have you found that certain foods make you feel worse/better? Did you receive any expert advice about your diet?
We would like to hear all of your tips and experiences and we’ll compile them towards the end of the month for an article. Please share in the comments section below, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The article itself will be posted on the LUPUS UK Blog at lupusuk.org.uk/category/blog/
All submissions will be anonymised.
