How can we keep closing our eyes?
This is one topic I’ve tried to stay away from for about the last five years ...but I can’t look the other way and ignore our country’s fat problem any longer.
This fat problem has to be stopped
...and it has to be stopped one
individual at a time ...one person at a time becoming self-responsible
for his or her own health. We’ve talked about this before and nobody else
can do it for you. You have to make that continuous decision to take
the steps necessary to put the responsibility where it belongs ...to
that person in the mirror!
Not that it is completely all our fault
...however, once you know,
understand why and then educate yourself on why there is such a growing
number of obese (fat) people in this country ...then it is definitely
in your hands to take charge and be responsible...(self-responsibility).
This fat problem is really very simple when its understood.
You see, modern
technology is good until it interferes with and changes our lifestyle.
You see, we don’t walk anymore ...we drive the car. We don’t pump
water any more ...we turn on the faucets ...instant hot and cold water.
We don’t use the stairs ...we use the elevators and escalators. We
don’t have an exercise program or the manual labor to burn off those
extra calories we ate last night at the grandchildren's birthday party.
The fat problem increases with courtesy of prosperity as a whole ...the good life. Add to that the wonderful TV and the video games for entertainment. Don’t forget all the sugar shacks on every corner USA. The fast food drive through at every crossroad USA ...and don’t forget all of those enticing commercials on the TV steering you to the refrigerator every 5 minutes. Is it any wonder then we have in this country and now world wide this obesity (fat) epidemic?
As we have said over and over
...the fat crisis is the result of simple
math. A calorie is a calorie is a calorie. There are 3500 calories in
a pound. Its a calorie in...calorie out calculation. If you take in
more calories than...your body burns ...you will gain weight. If your
body burns more calories than you eat, then you’ll loose weight. It’s
The recommended calorie intake for women is around 1500 calories a day for the average sedentary woman and roughly 2000 a day for men. Without any exercise ...if you eat more calories than those above numbers ...you’re probably going to gain some unwanted weight.
So wake up America
...what’s it going to take to down size those meals
instead of super sizing them as they say in the commercials.
The data is in folks...here are just some of the conditions associated with the obese (fat) problem in this country.
- Liver disease
- Colon Cancer
- Varicose Veins
- Sleep Apnea
- Gall Bladder Disease
- Respiratory Problems
No matter how much information is out there about the benefits of exercising ...most Americans just don’t want to do it. It’s said that one in four doesn’t get any exercise at all ...less than a third get the recommended minimum of 30 minutes a day and the experts are all saying that’s only what’s needed to lower the risk of chronic disease.
If you want to lose weight, then your going to have to cut the calories and add more time to treadmill and/or take more of those brisk morning, afternoon or evening walks.
Try this formula ...I call it the 3 C’s
- Cut the Calories
- Cut the Carbs
- Cut the Convenience
and don’t forget...curb your appetite by drinking plenty of clean fresh filtered water with 2-4 ounce of the “best tasting aloe” everyday. Know your supplier!!
