Good food for a good life By MELISSA KINEALY New take on life: Eating well and exercising is all in a day's work for Mahe Ha'unga since he graduated with a certificate in Pacific nutrition. Photo: MELISSA KINEALY Many Pacific people's lives are based around food but one man's on a mission to help them change their eating attitudes. Otara real estate agent and property manager Mahe Ha'unga is newly qualified with a Heart Foundation cer- tificate in Pacific nutrition. He feels like he's come into fresh air'' now he's eating properly and losing weight, he says. The foundation's Pacific Heartbeat team designed the certificate to help change eat- ing habits in Pacific com- munities and fight obesity and heart disease. It addresses the high fat, sugar and salt content in tra- ditional Pacific diets and teaches students techniques to modify their eating habits and control portion sizes. For Pacific people food is a way for us to show appreci- ation but I want our people to look at their food choices,'' Mr Ha'unga says. Everything we do we base around food.'' The father-of-four is one of 63 people who graduated after completing the certifi- cate course in December. He was 165kg when he started the course and has lost 27kg, thanks to his new healthy eating habits and exercise. He's aiming to weigh 110kg by the middle of the year. Driving him to lose the weight is a strong desire to live longer and be around to see his grandchildren grow up.People need to eat well and exercise to keep your body working'' and with his new qualification he now knows the reasons some foods are better than others. He's spreading the word at his Tongan church and food served at its events has changed to include nutritious sandwiches and fruits. He's also continuing with food demonstrations with his church youth group at supermarkets. People at my church look at me and can see the visual results of eating properly. If I can do it, anyone else can do it.''Mr Ha'unga now makes the lunches for his children, keeping the food as attractive as possible. I'm making different food to keep my family healthy -- we've cut back on taro and now I read the labels on food to check what's in it.'' The next certificate in Pacific nutrition course is in July.
