4 Easy Health and Fitness Tips

 

Americans in general haves seen an enormous increase in the number of people considered obese by the medical community. In fact many call it an Obesity Epidemic. To combat this we find all sorts of pharmaceutical companies selling the “quick fix” pills, powders, and lotions that do NOTHING to actually help people take the fat off and keep it off.

Of course the same could be said of the diet industry as well. There are so many different diets going around now you could pick one a month and in a years’ time still have more to choose from.

What is truly needed are some sensible proven weight loss tips that people can implement no matter what their present physical condition is.

That said let’s dive right in:

17882395_l#1 Drink More Water: All too often Americans are borderline dehydrated and so their bodies are working on the water starvation reflex and not flushing the toxins and junk out.

 

9023028_l#2 Eat More Often: I bet you thought I was going to say eat less. While it is true that to lose weight you need to eat fewer calories than you expend…you need to eat more often to get the metabolic furnace stoked up and burning right. Get it out of starvation mode. So start the day off with breakfast. Shakes are a great quick way to get breakfast in as you run out the door.

 

15783492_l#3 Move More: Depending on your physical condition you need to be moving more. Use the stairs rather than the elevator, park farther out from the office or the store, go for a walk around the block, go dancing, play with your kids. Make it fun. Running is not the only way to burn more calories.

 

 #4 Finally, Determine Your “Why“: Decide why you want to discard fat. Make your reason big enough to motivate you through the slumps that invariably happen.

Personally I am ready to live out the best years of my life. For YEARS now I have been saying that I can’t wait till I turn 40 – that’s right, I CAN’T WAIT till I turn 40. I have never been able to pin point a full reason why my spirit gets so excited to be 40. All I can say is that knowing the years that have past I can only expect 40+ to be absolutely amazing! As I take control of my health & fitness I am able to do more with my family, as there was a time that I would send them out to play and I would stay behind because I couldn’t physically handle such activities. I know that the changes I am making today are making a healthier & stronger tomorrow. When I hit 40, my beautiful daughter will be 20 and my boy will be 12 it will truly be a great season for our lives. Till then, I enjoy every day that I have breath.
