Diet and lifestyle

Eat to energise

A workday requires more energy than you might imagine. Therefore, it is important that you fill up on proper food in order to ensure enough energy for your entire day – also after work.

Fatigue, exhaustion and lack of concentration

Some of the clear signs that your diet is not properly composed are fatigue, concentration problems and not feeling full after meals.

Luckily, changing your diet is simple if you take a look at your eating habits and do a health check with yourself. Put in brief, it is about composing meals that consist of carbs, healthy fats and protein.

Did you know that...

  • 51 % of people in Denmark are moderately to severely obese and 14 % live up to the Danish Health Authority’s overall dietary recommendations? (The Danish National Health Profile 2017)
  • if you eat a varied diet, you body’s need for vitamins, minerals and other vital nutrients will be met? You reduce the risk of lifestyle diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and type-2 diabetes, and you prevent weight gain (The Danish Health Authority 2018).
  • your diet supplies the fuel that your body needs in order to move and function? The same way a car engine runs on gasoline, your body runs on energy from nutrients in your diet.
