Herbalife, a global nutrition company, has released the findings of the new Nutrition At Work Survey, which revealed that the majority of Philippines’ workforce leads largely sedentary lifestyles, putting them at risk of obesity. The Survey1, which was designed to understand the lifestyle habits and attitudes of Asia Pacific’s modern workforce, was conducted in March with 5,500 full-time workers in 11 Asia-Pacific markets, including 500 workers from the Philippines.
The survey findings reveal that almost nine out of 10 (85%) workers in the Philippines spend at least six hours a day sitting at their desk, with 52% of its workforce eating lunch at their work desk two to five times per week. Moreso, it is appeared that majority of Philippines’ workforce (86%) exercise less than three times per week, with five out of 10 getting less than 30 minutes of physical activity a day at their workplace. This suggests a significantly worrying trend locally, on the back of rising obesity rates recorded in recent years.
“With a majority of Philippines’ workforce leading largely sedentary lifestyles, our mission as a global nutrition company is to help people in the Philippines take practical steps towards leading healthy, active lives. By inculcating positive nutrition and active lifestyle habits to people in the Philippines, we hope that this will, over time, help reduce obesity risks and lead to positive improvements to the well-being of our people,” said Mr. Rosalio Valenzuela, General Manager of Herbalife Philippines.

Held in the months of April and May, the fifth edition of the Wellness Tour builds upon the successes of the past four tours that welcomed more than 80,000 participants across the region, and features a host of medical symposiums, talks and workshops led by seven experts from Herbalife’s Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB), covering 26 cities across Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Macau, New Zealand, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.
The team of Herbalife NAB experts who have participated in the Asia-Pacific Wellness Tour were:
Dr. David Heber, chairman of the Herbalife Nutrition Institute and Nutrition Advisory Board. A leading expert in the field of nutrition, named as one of “The World’s Most Influential Scientific Minds” by Thomson Reuters in 2014 and repeatedly included in “The Best Doctors in America”.

Dr. Darren Burgess, an expert in sports science and nutrition who has authored papers in multiple peer review journals. He is also the current Head of High Performance at Port Adelaide Football (AFL) Club, and the former Head of Fitness and Conditioning at Liverpool Football Club.
Dr. Nataniel Viuniski, an expert in pediatrics and nutrition who has authored “Childhood Obesity – A Practical Guide”. He is also currently an advisor to Brazil's Health and Education Ministry for Childhood Obesity.
Dr. Francis Gregory Samonte, one of the Philippines’ premier experts in pediatric neurology, and the first Filipino appointed to the NAB. He was a recipient of the Chairman’s Achievement Award from the University of Louisville, Kentucky’s Department of Pediatrics.
The NAB experts were also joined by Dr. Luigi Gratton, Herbalife’s vice president of nutrition education and development, who has written numerous articles on nutrition and obesity, and has appeared on television speaking on nutrition, anti-aging medicine, sports nutrition and other medical topics.
“With each new edition of the Wellness Tour, we are seeing an increasing number of people gain practical knowledge to lead better lives. We hope that that this year’s Tour will further empower people to take charge of their nutritional intake and exercise regimen, so that they can enjoy the full benefits of a healthy, active life,” Mr. Valenzuela concluded.

McDonalds restaurant is promoting The Angry Birds Movie with 10 new Happy Meal toys and fun activities as the film opens in theaters this May 2016.
The latest Happy Meal toy collection features the movie’s main characters including Light-Up Red, Speedster Chuck, Lasso Pig, and slingshot launchers featuring Red, Bomb, Stella, Terence, Leonard, Cowboy Pig, and Pilot Pig.
Yesterday, we got to watch the hilarious The Angry Birds Movie at Powerplant Mall Cinema, courtesy of McDonalds. My daughter and I were laughing hard during the entire animated comedy flick! Watching the birds fling themselves into the paths of the villainous pigs in an attempt to rescue their stolen eggs was so funny!
We then went in to chow down at McDonalds after seeing The Angry Birds Movie and ordered a Happy Meal for my child. She had her fill of chicken nuggets, corn plus fun with the new Angry Birds toy that came with the Happy Meal Box.
McDonald’s entire play sets are based on its mobile game origins to fling at and shoot down at structures. There are also codes included with the toys to download special unlockable items in Angry Birds Action! McDonald’s customers can unlock an exclusive experience in the ‘Angry Birds Action!’ app by scanning a ‘BirdCode’ printed on the Happy Meal Box.
This brings the user to a mini-game with the mission to defend McDonald’s from the green pigs. Players will be rewarded with free power-ups depending on their score.
McDonald’s also offers three Angry Birds-themed desserts in 3 flavors. These Angry Birds-themed desserts are: Red’s Cotton Candy McFlurry, Piggies’ Oreo Matcha McFlurry and Bomb’s Black Sesame McDip which are available for a limited time only.
McDonald’s Angry Birds Happy Meal and Desserts can be availed in all stores nationwide via McDonald’s front counter, Drive-Thru counter, McDelivery.com.ph, by calling 86-2-36, or ordering through the McDo PH App.
Share your moments of play with McDonald’s Angry Birds Happy Meal via the official Facebook page, www.facebook.com/McDo.ph, by tagging @McDo_PH on Twitter and Instagram, and using the hashtag #McDoHappyMeal.
