Are you watching your intake of salt, sugar and fat?

Many of us tend to take it for granted that we are consuming foods adequately and that our salt, sugar and fat intake are at a healthy level. The truth is that we will only know whether the levels of these substances in our bodies are healthy or not by getting tested.

Getting tested and taking action (if necessary), can help prevent conditions such as hypertension, diabetes as well as obesity. Chat to your doctor if you are concerned about your intake of these substances and need to have your body mass index calculated.
