Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

Get Healthy and Stay Healthy

 
     Right now the number one concern of Americans and everyone around the world is their health.  People are a bit frightened at the possibility of catching COVID 19 and becoming very ill.  Yes,  people are dying of this disease.
 
     If you look at the statistics carefully, we see that the overwhelming majority of people who will not survive this disorder are elderly and people with underlying health problems.  The ability to stay healthy and keep a strong immune system is largely up to us.
 
     The lifestyle we live, the foods we eat, the condition of our body, and our level of fitness, all play a huge role in our ability to stay healthy and ward off disease.  
This Pandemic is shining a bright light on those with underlying health disorders such as Hypertension, Diabetes, Obesity, and Heart or Lung disease.
 
     Each of these disorders can lead to a worse outcome if one contracts the Coronavirus.  How do we fend this virus off?  We work on getting our entire body healthier.  We eat more vegetables and fruits.  We avoid high carbohydrate foods and snacks and we exercise regularly.  Of course, hopefully it didn't take this pandemic to get you started, but better late than never.
 
     If you were already fit and lean, then you are prepared. Keep up the work.  If not, we have some work to do.  There is no way to get fit and healthy overnight, so don't attempt it.  That will lead to injury, pain, and a setback.  Do something today though.  Make an adjustment in diet.  Get in a walk.  Repeat this tomorrow and the next day.  Our bodies respond quite quickly to improvement.
 
     I've seen uncontrolled Type II Diabetics reverse their blood sugars to normal in as little as two weeks.  I've seen people lose up to 15 pounds of excess body fat in 2 weeks.  Though this is not required, getting started is.  Don't live in fear of a virus.  Live a life that will suppress the virus.
 
     This Coronavirus won't be the last virus or bacteria or germ our body has to confront.  Why not start preparation now to reduce risk from any contagious illness that comes at us now or in the future.  This is a wake up call.  This is a signal that we must live a more fit and healthier and leaner life if we want to continue to live life.
 
     We can extend our lives many quality years by taking action today and being persistent over the rest of our lives.  Now is the time to get our body ready for war with a virus.  Hopefully, you don't contract this virus, but if unfortunately it visits, have the body and immune system of a warrior and defeat it quickly.
 
     Be safe, follow the rules to avoid contracting Coronavirus, and Live Lean, Live Long, and Live Life to the Fullest!

Little Things

We want big changes and we are willing to do big things, but the path to long term success with weight loss is paved with the little things we do day in and day out. Find out which of the little things you are neglecting and you will find success when done

Many Measures

We often focus only on the scales as a measurement of our health. There are many measures that will show us progress toward a healthy and lean body. Body fat percent, clothes fit, energy levels, and a host of other measurements. Add these measures also.

The Downside of Excess Body Fat

Inflammation, disease, and early death. Those are the downsides of Overweight Syndrome and Obesity. Reducing body weight and fat percentage will reverse these scary outcomes dramatically. Getting leaner will add good years to our lives. That's worth it

What Should I Eat?

Here's a refresher about eating healthy. We think that the foods discussed would be chicken and lettuce, but that would be bland and boring. There is no such thing as a bad food. Some foods should only be eaten in small portions and less often.

Diabetes

Diabetes is rampant. This genetic and metabolic disorder can sneak up and damage the body long before it is detected. Learn about what Diabetes is and how it negatively effects our health. It is a reversible disease and can be put in remission.

Saying No

We take on too many things and then can't focus on what matters most. Our health is one of those things that matters most. We must learn to say No to the distractions and other peoples agendas. Say Yes to our agenda and limit our focus.
