British Heart Foundation urges people to have healthy new year
10:41am Tuesday 1st January 2013 in News
The British Heart Foundation launched its free ‘New Year New You’ pack which includes advice about diet, physical activity, quitting smoking and how to lead a healthy lifestyle.
People in Bradford are being encouraged to order the pack after the festive food and drink excess.
There are currently almost 220,000 people in Yorkshire and the Humber living with heart disease, which is largely preventable through living a healthy lifestyle.
Victoria Taylor, senior heart health dietician at the British Heart Foundation, said: “After all the treats, turkey and extra tipples, it’s not just Father Christmas who will end up with straining buttons over the festive period. “Now is a good time to think about a fresh start for the new year.
“It’s not always easy to stick to new year’s resolutions, but we have a wide range of resources to support you and help you get heart-healthy in 2013.”
