    How do you keep fit and healthy?

    To stay fit and healthy you have to pay attention to an active lifestyle with healthy eating. What have  you  tried to keep in shape and eat correctly everyday?

    Yes it depends on lifestyle, what you eat and how active you are in daily life. Many people do not go to gym but still stays fit and healthy because healthy food and active daily routine.

      I eat healthy foods, well.. most of the time anyway. I take long walks, we're going on two weeks walking holiday in the Lake District beginning on Sunday, and I use a tread mill and a vibrating exercise machine.

    I keep fit and healthy by watching what I eat. I do believe in eating good food that gives me good health. I don't do exercise but when I go to work, I do a lot of walking on long corridors and up the steps instead of using the lift. I walk to the bus stop to go to work. So I think I am quite fit. I grow my own vegetables and eat them so I get a lot of exercise in the garden as well. I do try and eat healthy foods and cut my sugar intake as I don't want to get obese.

      True about the sugar intake I try not to take sugar at all. Sounds like you are doing it right. Thank you

    DDE: I keep fit and healthy by walking every day right after my morning bath.  I look forward to this ...rain, shine, flood, blizzard...I don't miss a day.  I also park my car far away from the grocery store or any other place I go so that I have to walk.

    I fear atrophy...I have seen it happen to people who raised me...after they reached a certain age they started to SIT...they lost interest in going places, and moving their bodies.  One person who raised me let herself get was awful...she got ill and by the time she had surgery, she could not even stand up in rehab, as she had let her body atrophy through inactivity.  She died 6 weeks later.

    We HAVE to keep our bodies moving every single day.  This is vital.  Also, as people get older, they have to eat wisely and NOT SNACK in between meals.  I went to a high school reunion last year and was shocked at how my classmates had let themselves go.  Some were unrecognizable...I could only identify them by their name tags.  Each year that passes, we must be vigilant about eating less and exercising more.

    I weigh about 15 pounds more than when I graduated. I am determined to either stay at that weight or lose.. I maintain by eating 2 meals a day: lunch and dinner.  I keep an eye on my that I do not go over...and, when lucky, sometimes I lose a couple pounds.  I do not eat a morsel of food after 6:30 p.m.

    I do the math...if an individual gains 10 pounds a year, in five years they will have gained 50 pounds.  And as one grows older, it is harder to take off that much weight.   

    I do love desserts, and I confess to having dessert almost every night...But I eat a lot of vegetables.  I don't handle fruits because I have GERD and Barrett's Esophagus, and the acid in fruits tends to give me major heartburn...although I can handle a banana or an apple. 

    This is my personal regimen...Healthy?  I hope so!  I have had my share of surgeries over the years...but that is another subject altogether.

    Thank you for this great question.  Blessings, Sparklea smile

      Great answer from you. I try to be active daily from walking daily and my job keeps me that way too. I have also noticed how women my age have let them self go that can happen to anyone but with control it can be prevented. Thank you

    I think the most important part of staying fit and healthy is eating the right foods. More people are realizing that fresh fruits, nuts, vegetables, and meats are the way to go. Avoiding most processed foods (including boxed meals) will go a long way toward good health.

    Try to find local farm markets to buy fresh veggies and meat. Most of the time buying fresh will save you money (especially on medical problems later on).

      I eat freshly grown vegetables and fruit  and make sure to have healthy foods all home made meals. I avoid any fast food or junk foods. Boxed foods are a waste of time to me. Thank you

    A no meat diet. I do eat fish.  Lots of fresh or frozen veggies and fruits. I am a pescatarian. I walk the stairs and night at work.I always try to find the stairs instead of the elevators or escalators. I park a long way from the doors when shopping. I don't do anything extreme but all these little things make a difference.

    I stay fit and healthy through watching over the foods that I eat each day. I am making sure that I am eating the right meals that my body needs. I do go for some walks everyday. This helps my body to become active.
