Amsterdam; the canals and the many restaurants and terraces remain fun.

VITALITY

What is vitality to you?

A body with a correct BMI and a good condition.

How do you take care of your own vitality?

For 42 years now, I have a profession where I move and walk all day, in combination with apparently genes that I don’t make me need to worry about my weight. As a result, I always have a good condition and BMI. And by cycling and playing tennis I keep my condition on track. I also always eat healthy, 3 meals a day and do not drink too much soda and alcohol. And I have never had the need to smoke, so I always feel vital. I snack healthy with Make My Bar.
