MANILA, PHILIPPINES — Old habits are hard to break, but not impossible. With the arrival of the New Year, we are given a blank slate— an opportunity to get things right and create a list of fresh goals. With health and fitness often at the top of this list, Swiftlet Co., a start-up created by an innovative group of young scientists and marketers, shares how we can effectively set and maintain health goals this year.
It’s important to set clear and specific goals. For example, instead of just saying that we want to take better care of our bodies, we can look at the rising cases of diabetes in the country and resolve to cut back our sugar intake.
However, this is easier said than done knowing that most Pinoys have a sweet tooth. A recent study shows that we’ve turned to sweets more than ever since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. To help with this, Swiftlet offers its Natural Sugar Replacement, locally manufactured for Filipinos––and currently the only blend that is 100% natural and contains probiotics, a non-glycemic index response, zero calories, and zero sugar. This non-GMO product is safe for diabetic and also keto-friendly, which makes lessening our sugar consumption not only easy but also enjoyable!
Make your goals “measurable”
We have to make sure our goals are achievable, and we can do this by breaking them down into smaller ones. Taking the same example of wanting to cut back on added sugar, it might be difficult or intimidating to suddenly quit all our favorite desserts and guilty pleasures.
But with Swiftlet, we can still give in to our sweet cravings without sacrificing our health for it. Swiftlet is all-natural as it doesn’t use any artificial flavors and preservatives. Healthier alternatives to sugar such as stevia, honey, coco sugar, agave, and many others have. However, these options mostly serve as sweetener substitutes, not exactly aiming to mimic the qualities of refined sugar—unlike Swiftlet that has a 1:1 ratio with that of refined sugar.
Making the switch from refined sugar to Swiftlet might sound simple in itself, but it’s through these small changes we do consistently that we’re able to develop new, healthier habits!
Celebrate your successes
Whether it’s short-term or long-term health goals, we should reward ourselves when we meet them. Making resolutions might be fun and easy to do at the start of the year, but it’s how we follow through and stay committed that matters most.
How you choose to celebrate is up to you, but don’t forget— with Swiftlet, you can have your cake and eat it (without guilt) too!

Real stories. Real people.
We believe that life isn’t about a binary of ones and zeros - but about the sum of our hopes and dreams, our struggles and heartaches, our tragedies and triumphs.
The things that unite us are far stronger than the things that divide us.
And those stories are why we are alike
