Healthy Rhinos Week – One You Leeds

At Friday’s Leeds Rhinos’ game against Widnes we are joining forces with our partners from across the city for a health takeover night at Emerald Headingley as part of our Healthy Rhinos Week.

Throughout Healthy Rhinos Week we will focus on our many health projects which are aiming to inspire people to enjoy healthy, happy and active lifestyles.  Next up we look at our work with One You Leeds and supporting their health campaigns.

About One You Leeds
One You Leeds provide residents with support to make positive health changes.  It is a free local healthy living service that aims to help the residents of Leeds make positive changes to their lifestyle and behaviour to improve their health.

Eat Well
In March One You Leeds launched their nutrition campaign to encourage all adults in Leeds to think about making healthy choices around their eating.
This was in response to Public Health England’s latest guidance that a ‘calorie creep’ means adults are consuming on average 200 to 300 more calories than they need each day. This leads to unhealthy weight gain.
Adults in Leeds should aim to follow the 400-600-600 principle. That’s around 400 calories for breakfast, 600 for lunch and 600 for dinner, plus a couple of healthy snacks and drinks in-between.
To help, One You Leeds provided a free recipe book and offer Eat Well and Cook Well services, designed to help adults in Leeds improve their knowledge and choices around eating and develop their cooking skills.

Looking for some healthy dinner options for the Bank Holiday weekend? Access the free @OneYouLeeds recipe book and Eat Well and Cook Well services at #oneyou400600600 #HealthyRhinos

Move More
In June One You Leeds launched a new Physical Activity campaign to highlight the health and wellbeing benefits of doing 10 continuous minutes of brisk walking every day. It can make people feel better in so many ways, including boosting energy levels, clearing heads and lifting moods. It also raises people’s heart raises and can go some way towards lowering their risk of serious illnesses, such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
Leeds Rhinos chief executive Gary Hetherington got behind the campaign by downloading the Active 10 app which helps people to monitor their daily activity and encourage them to take steps to Move More and the Leeds Rhinos staff were motivated to challenge each other to see who made the most steps on one of their match nights


Did you know a brisk 10 minute walk every day can improve your physical health?
