When we talk about the fat problem we have in this country ...everyone tries to justify his or her reason. I have a metabolism problem. I have a slow metabolism, thats why Im gaining weight. I have a...
Obesity in America ...is it because of the lack of activity and lack of exercise?
than 30% of Americans are showing some signs of being overweight even
though we have all these diet and fitness crazes coming out every year
…but yet, the pounds still seem to be packing on at an alarming rate.
Even with the billions of dollars being spent on the new, best diet or
the next quick fix remedy.
Every year, around the first of the New Year …out comes all the media hype about the next big breakthrough in the weight loss industry. But do they work? Some do and some don’t. Some are short term and some are long term. But in the end, do they really work?
The latest surveys estimate that 20-50% of Americans are on some kind of diet and spend in excess of 30 billion dollars a year on diet plans and products …and for those that stay with the programs and lose some weight …it is estimated that those who do lose the weight...about two thirds of them will regain the lost weight in two to five years. What’s up with that?
So we ask the question …
- “Is it the typical western diet?”
- “Is it the serving size?”
- “Is it the consumption of processed foods?”
- “Is it the snack food loaded with sugar?”
- “Is it the life style associated with fast food?”
- “Is it hormonal?”
- “Is it because of slow metabolism?”
Or can it be, in part, because of the lack of activity and lack of exercise?
The experts all agree, that the most common causes of those unwanted “extra” pounds is because of poor diet, bad habits and lack of exercise.
Lets talk about exercise …your body burns about 12 calories per pound at rest during the course of the day. So if you were roughly 180 pounds, you would use up about 2,160 calories per day just resting. So, if your job is setting at a desk in front of the computer all day …there’s really not much extra calorie burning activity going on there...agreed?
Let’s say you get up in the morning and have breakfast. Eggs, bacon, toast and a glass of juice or a cream and sugar coffee …400 calories. At your office work, it’s your morning break and you have another coffee with just a small, small donut …200 calories. Then it’s a fast food lunch because you only have a half hour lunch …another 1000 -1500 calories on average. And for dinner …well, you have to reward yourself for the very good job you did today, so you go out to dinner, yep, full course steak dinner with a big desert …you earned it! …1200 calories. That’s not counting the two drinks you had before your dinner was served!! Then a relaxing evening at home watching TV …it’s snack time …another piece of chocolate and a couple chocolate chip cookie …300 calories. Then a night cap (wine) …200 calories …just to make you sleep well. Do the math …that’s a total of 3500 calories for the day and we didn’t have any time left over to participate in any activity or exercise …but, we always say...we will tomorrow for sure!!
I don’t know what your numbers came out to, but my numbers say your about 3500 -2160 = 1340 calories over the limit. With those numbers, without any extra activity and lack of exercise …if that was any indication of your eating habits or lifestyle, you would be gaining a few extra pounds every month …that is, if you don’t do any activity or exercise at all…so, try to take some personal time for yourself for that much needed exercise and burn off those excess calories.
As an added benefit …drink plenty of clean fresh filtered water with 2-4 ounces of the “best tasting Aloe Vera” every day …add to that, Super ForceONE to “rev up” your metabolism to help burn off those excess calories...and LifeTrim...to curb your appetite... know your supplier!!
