Lets’s solve this
Obesity! It’s the number one problem in modern developed countries today! we are all concerned with our weight, but maintaining proper weight can be so hard! Sure we try. But who has the time? There are so many things to do everyday! Seems impossible!
Yet weight maintenance doesn’t have to be so hard. it just takes a few simple changes. Then, with time and patience weight maintenance will happen.
The first thing you need
to do is drink plenty of water. It’s been recommended you drink at
least eight glasses of eight ounces each of water every day. This has
quite a few benefits. Water has no calories and will keep your body
well hydrated. Drinking water raises your metabolism slightly so
you’ll start burning more calories. As you exercise, you water to
keep your body in top shape and repair damage to your muscles. So
it’s important that you keep yourself well hydrated. Cut soda from
your diet completely! Don’t just drink diet soda or cut back. Get rid
of it! Soda is horrible for you. Just drinking water and dropping the
soda will help you lose weight. Additionally cut sugar from your

In addition to the cardio
exercise, you should be doing some strength training every other day.
Cardio training helps but strength training is what burns the most
fat. Cardio is good for short calorie burning, but the more muscle
you build the more calories you’ll burn even at a rest. It’s not a
good idea to do strength training every day though. Lifting weights
or anything that involves muscle building constantly damages muscles.
When you finish working out your body repairs muscles and you build
up muscle. It takes about a day for your body to recover. So if you
don’t let your body rest, then you’ll end up injuring yourself.
One problem is the hectic,
fast paced life style most of us have. We are constantly on the go
and the term “fast food” has been created. With an unhealthy diet
and no time to exercise usually leads to being overweight. Take note
of what you eat. Do you have a latte on the way to work? Why not
substitute regular coffee or cup of herbal tea? You’ll find the
same boost in energy without the sugar rush. Do you have fast food
for lunch, or take out for dinner? Instead of that burger and fries
why not make it a sandwich and some fruit? There are a lot of
sandwiches fast and easy to make yourself are a good supplement to
the high fat and salt.
Technology in not weight friendly
Next is technology!
Especially in the younger generation. Kids these days depend on the
internet and television for entertainment instead of the energy
exerting childhood games of yesterday. Marketing feeds on this and
makes the unhealthy lifestyles the easiest and least expensive. To
combat these problems we need to work strategies into our unique
lifestyle. Little changes can make a big difference.
Seize opportunities to
get more exercise. Remember, a little difference can go a long way.
take those stairs instead of the elevator when possible, or park a
little farther away when running errands. By seizing opportunities to
walk you will make a big difference in your health.
