At a time when many people focused on eating well and reducing weight by improving their diet, the importance of eating fruit is well researched and documented. For those who want to lose weight, many of these fruits provide plenty of Vitamin C, a known fat burning vitamin.
Health to most people means, “not being sick.” People who are ill are considered to be in “poor health.” For these people, health is simply the absence of sickness. There is another more comprehensive view however, held by groups like the World Health Organization and the International Scouting Movement that suggest that true health is not only physical well being, but also includes, mental, social, spiritual and intellectual well being.
Are you like most people today, concerned about your health and well being and want to shed some unwanted pounds? Our intention is to lose weight and rid ourselves of the unwanted pounds we are carrying but intentions don’t create weight loss and in some cases our good intentions can even cause us to gain more weight. Losing weight takes lots of self-discipline and is going to mean a life changing decision to modify the way we view food and exercise in our lives.
It should be noted that the key to a successful exercise program is perseverance. This means that you need to commit to it for the long haul—in fact, it is best if you commit to it for the rest of your life. Certainly, it can be difficult at times. But in the end, it is well worth the effort you exert.
What people need to realize is that staying active and eating right are critical for long-term health and wellness -- and that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The more you know about how your body responds to your lifestyle choices, the better you can customize a nutrition and exercise plan that is right for you.
