The Health Fitness Revolution team and I started the Balkan Project in 2013 with the agenda of promoting healthy lifestyle in those countries. With this being said, we will go in to every segment of society, take into consideration every relevant factor, and use every possibility to improve the health of that region. One of these relative factors is also the healthy ambassadors and the individuals that can motivate millions of followers to live a healthy lifestyle. The person we are appointing as this month’s Health Fitness Revolution honorary ambassador for the Balkan region is the first lady of Croatia, Sanja Music Milanovic.
Currently, some media outlets, political factors, and certain organizations are trying to discourage her health suggestions to the Croatian/Balkan people by sarcastically using her tips as political fuel to discredit her noble intentions. Health Fitness Revolution and I stand behind her suggestion that whole grain bread, although slightly more expensive, can be sliced thinner and still have more nutritional value for the body.
Considering that we did some research on the Balkan region, and that the average resident is consuming more calories than 90% of the rest of the world population, I am not worried about this region not having enough calorie consumption. Health Fitness Revolution team and I chose Sanja Music Milanovic as a great example of a person who is contributing to Balkan healthy lifestyle and fitness- which is more important than politics, especially in a region that is known for having too much of that.
As one of the supervisors for the promotion of health with the Croatian Public Health Department she is a great ambassador on how to live and promote a healthy lifestyle in a region that needs it. She has said “We need to destroy the myth that healthy food is expensive food. Healthy food is actually more affordable because the body requires less quantities of it.” She has also said that healthy consumption doesn’t mean shopping at the most expensive stores and buying the most expensive products, but rather buying things that are healthy, available, and for affordable prices.
