Proper Diet and Exercise Leads to A Healthier Lifestyle

Updated on December 27, 2014

There is a large amount of people today who do not exercise, and they also do not eat properly. These two aspects of our lives need to be taken under control so that we can prevent diseases and live healthier lives. If these two problems are not eradicated, then the amount of obese people will continue to rise, and this will lead to a larger amount of sick people. It is very important to take care of our bodies, because after all they are the only ones we get. I propose that we need to put more effort into marketing the healthier lifestyle with proper marketing techniques and incentives. If individuals are not given something to work for, often through history it has been proven, they will not work at all. If people are given something to work for then usually they will do it. However, in today’s society it is a “if it feels good do it, or if it tastes good, eat it mentality. This should not be the way that we should be operating as a nation and as fellow human beings. With all the different media out there in the world, most of it being negatively impacting upon us, it gets into our subconscious and can affect our behavior. People today are not being responsible for making their own decisions in the choices of food, and also in making the time for and prioritizing for exercise. There is a getting without working mentality going on in America and in the world. Responsibility says that if you do not work you do not eat. That is not just directed at food or work, it is also directed at every area of life; if life were easy then everyone would be wealthy, healthy, intelligent, strong, and not have a care in the world. However, life is not a kind teacher. You have to work hard in every single aspect of your life to have anything worth having. Unfortunately, there is a large number of people that have an entitlement mentality that if there was a pill, or something of that nature that they could take to become thinner, or healthier instead of putting in the time and effort to become healthier. Heaven forbid a generation that takes responsibility for its own actions.

The blame cannot go to the food manufacturers and the food providers, because every individual has the choice of eating at a certain restaurant or buying a certain type of food. Unfortunately, most people are not fully educated upon what is the correct “fuel” to put into our “machine” for it to run properly. In the same way that you can choose the type or brand of oil that you wish to put into your car’s engine; you can choose the type of food that goes into your body. Your choices of lifestyle however have been learned from your parents or your guardians. So, if your parents were only eating unhealthy foods for them, and they were only feeding you unhealthy foods, then one could make the assumption that you will grow up to make the same choices in your diet because it is the only food that you will have a preference for. This is made evident in your response to certain healthy foods, and it is because of your conditioned stimulus as a child. If people do not start to take responsibility for their own bodies and their own well-being, the rates of diseases tied to obesity will continue to rise and no one can help them apart from themselves.
