Stabilized Organic Aloe Vera and Obesity

Updated on September 7, 2010

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 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 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 will gain weight. If your body burns more calories than you eat, then you’ll loose weight. It’s simple math.

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’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 are just some of the conditions associated with the obese (fat) problem in this country.

  1. Liver disease
  2. Colon Cancer
  3. Osteoarthritis
  4. Stroke
  5. Diabetes
  6. Hypertension
  7. Osteoarthritis
  8. Varicose Veins
  9. Sleep Apnea
  10. Gout
  11. Hernias
  12. Gall Bladder Disease
  13. 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

  1. Cut the Calories
  2. Cut the Carbs
  3. 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!!

      einron is about getting the vitamins and minerals your body needs to help your body redistribute the weight. Good that you take it for constipation. Constipation is one of the reasons that our body holds onto weight.

      When you can't get the vitamins and minerals you need keep eating. It all goes together. My best to your health!
