A healthy lifestyle means maintaining a balanced and nutritious diet as well as engaging in athletic sports or other fitness related activities. However, a healthy diet alone is in adequate to ensure a healthy body as physical activity helps to keep one in shape and free of sickness and disease.
We as human beings live through life as if we are invincible. We seem to ignore the fact, that if we don’t utilize proper nutrition, rest and staying active we may not live to our full human genetic potential. Obesity rates in adults have grown to 39.6 percent, we’ve increased by nearly 10 percent in the last 20 years, Necessary actions must be taken. If this increase in obesity continues to grow, our future’s health may be in jeopardy.
Most Adults and children prefer a quick and easy meal that you pop into the microwave in less than three minutes, and there you go Bon Appetit, you have yourself a pretty, delicious meal. The truth is it may be delicious, but is it really healthy for your body? Nowadays we are looking for that short cut in life, many of us are unmotivated to cook our meals, due to the fact that we “ Don’t have the time’’ or lack in motivation to cook healthy meals. If we used our time wisely and meal prepped our food once a week for the whole week and many weeks to come, the health rate of us American people can change, when it all comes to it we can make time in our life. Mahatma Ghandi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world’. The lack of motivation can be recalibrated by just taking that leap forward as individuals by making those small changes, which could be Time management, learning basic Nutrition, or even just building a plan for the day. Feeding our bodies the right fuel should be mandatory for every one of us, imagine what we can accomplish at our very best, like an expansive car, your brain as well as your whole body functions best when it only gets premium fuel. ‘Eating High quality foods that contain lots of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants nourishes the brain and body, “It also protects it from oxidative stress”.
“Physical training has been present in human societies throughout history.” Usually, “it was performed for the purposes of preparing for physical competition or display, improving physical and mental health, and looking attractive.” Study’s say even “walking for thirty minutes a day or more on most days of the week is a great way to improve or maintain your overall health.” If you can’t manage thirty minutes a day, Remember “even a little is good, but more is better” Some of you might’ve heard of that saying, “ being at a caloric deficit” Meaning Burning more calories than consuming. For example, an average American male burns ruffly around 2,000 calories per day, just taking out the trash or even sitting in A office all day. He must consume no more than 1,800 calories in order to stay in healthy shape, If that male becomes more active and starts burning more calories he can than increase his calorie intake depending on his goal. According to Statistics only one in ten people exercise regularly and majority do not follow a healthy diet.
In light of this information, only one in ten people exercise regularly and majority do not follow a healthy diet. The main culprit is our penchant for junk food as can be seen from the popularity of fast food chains and other western eateries – Thus , consuming this type of food on a daily basis can contribute to unhealthy weight gain. Over weight people suffer from many diseases like, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and even cancer. Starting Healthy life style changes when you at a young age is very important. Parent’s must urge their children to eat more fresh vegetables, fruits, juices, whole meals and whole grain foods. In my opinion I believe we need to be more educated about health, in our schools, our work places and in our personal lives.
