Also, after 30, cell degeneration starts to occur at a faster rate, which is another reason to take a good care of our health.

Firstly, if you still haven't, start learning how to cook, as this habit can help you follow a healthy, clean diet, as you do not have to depend on the food available outside.

Keeping a constant tab on your weight, once you hit 30, is a good way to keep fit. A lot of hormonal changes occur during the 30s, and your metabolic rate can also slow down. So, it is important to weigh yourself often and change your routine accordingly.
Ensure that you include enough omega-3 fatty acids to your diet, by consuming nuts, coconut, fish, etc., as omega-3 fatty acids are known to slow down cell ageing and can also prevent hunger pangs.

Talk to a personal trainer or your doctor and choose an exercise routine that can help boost your metabolism, as your metabolic rate can slow down after 30.
Ensure that you take frequent breaks if you have a desk-bound job and make sure to walk a bit or do some stretches, in order to avoid certain disorders associated with long hours of sitting.
