If you’ve been an avid follower of my blog, you probably already know how conscious I am of my health. Ever since I made that decision one fateful day back in 2010 to get back in shape, losing 50 lbs in 6 months (185 lbs down to 135 lbs), I never looked back.
And based on my own research and personal experience, I’ve learned that while having a very active lifestyle does wonders to one’s health and well-being, it does no good whatsoever if you cannot complement it with a proper diet. Nutrition is roughly 80% of your entire fitness regimen while physical activity is only 20%. That’s right. I can spend every single day in the gym, sweating it out relentlessly, but without proper food intake, I’ll end up hardly seeing any results.
But here’s the thing… finding the right kinds of food to keep myself fit and in shape has proven to be quite a challenge because healthy products aren’t readily available.
Thankfully, all that is about to change thanks to honestbee!
Going healthy is now easy with honestbee!
That’s right! honestbee, Asia’s leading online concierge and delivery service, can now bring healthy products right to my doorstep! honestbee has launched its Organic, Fresh and Healthy category with a selection of the best merchants offering nutritious, healthy and organic products. Yay! This gives consumers like you and me easier and faster access to our favorite wholesome food choices.
I recently attended honestbee’s optimal well-being event where they announced this bit of really good news. During the event were treated to a yoga class designed to enhance vitality and a sense of mindfullness, followed by a nutrition-boosting lunch of all things organic and natural. Fitness personalities and nutritionists also spoke about their experiences with food and living a healthy lifestyle.
“Our goal is to always give the most convenient online shopping experience. It might be hard to stick to a healthy lifestyle but we try to make it easier and more accessible for our customers,” said Crystal Gonzalez, Managing Director of honestbee Philippines.
I was so glad to see that one of the speakers during that event was a good friend of mine — Marga Banaga. She’s a YouTuber/vlogger who has lost 30lbs in 100 days by maintaining a holistic healthy lifestyle through meal prepping. You also probably have heard of her because her incredible transformation has been featured in various popular online magazines/portals and social media platforms. Marga explained during her talk that the only way to lose weight and lead a healthier life is to make more conscious choices of what we eat. She adds that food is our medicine and when we upgrade our diet, we upgrade our life.
