Food for Sport

Taking part in sport or just getting physically active will help you burn off excess calories and maintain your body weight. It will also help reduce your risk of many diseases, such as heart disease.

But remember to check with your GP before starting a new exercise programme, particularly if you haven't exercised for some time.
