America is dangerously overweight, with 3.8 million people over 300 pounds and 400,000 (mostly men) weighing over 400 pounds! In America, statistics show that the average weight of an adult female is now an unprecedented 163 pounds! These statistics are quite alarming… because along with increased weight, comes increased health problems. Diabetes, Coronary Artery Disease, High Blood Pressure, increased risk of heart attack and stroke… the list goes on. Obesity is the second leading cause of death in this country…right behind smoking. Get it?
We, as a nation, need to WAKE UP!!
The basics – eat less, move more. But that’s just the start. It’s a matter of changing our mindset and our habits. Fats foods, “convenience” foods, overly processed pre-packaged foods with no nutritional value whatsoever. Be conscious of what you are putting into your body…and be accountable for it. I don’t believe in deprivation…enjoy that occasional piece of chocolate…but work it off.
Ask yourself before you eat something –’is it really worth it?” Do you realize that a slice of cheesecake has up to 1,150 calories? That’s almost an entire days worth of calories! Something to think about.
Healthy choices that you can live with…that’s my motto. Nourish your body with healthy food…exercise…develop a healthy lifestyle, not only for yourself, but for your children as well.
Don’t become a statistic.
