If you ask yourself what’s for you the concept of healthy living , and after sincere confession you will be able to realize that more than 60 % of the people live unhealthy.
The special significance of a healthy life in addition to physical activity (training) is a diet.
Sometimes the simplest things matter most. Health and fitness-minded people face many challenges in determining their best choices in the key lifestyle areas of diet, exercise and stress management. None is more important than that most basic question, “What should I eat?”
Anyone seeking information about diet and nutrition quickly discovers that there are countless nutrition books and websites, each with a different set of rules and regulations. With nutrition, as with many things in life, it is helpful to begin with the assumption that many roads can lead to the desired destination. Since there are healthy people following diets that differ substantially from one another, it follows logically that no single set of guidelines must be rigidly adhered to by all people seeking good health. Fortunately, we have choices.
This does not mean that we can eat and drink all manner of junk foods and beverages and expect that everything will turn out fine. While it is true that some people can follow a grease-filled, vegetable-poor diet, yet live to be 90 and never develop heart disease, and others can smoke two packs of cigarettes a day and never get lung cancer or asthma, these people are the exceptions. For the vast majority, such courses of action can have grave consequences. Despite there being many dietary variations consistent with good health, some areas of common ground are shared by all evidence-informed approaches. The most important of these is choosing whole foods rather than processed foods.
From my point of view, the two most important dietary recommendations are to come as close as possible to (1) a 100 percent whole foods diet and (2) complete elimination of processed sugars, particularly sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. Without a doubt, if everyone were to follow these two guidelines the health of our society would be immeasurably improved. The second , no less important fact in correlation of healthy living and exercising is mental strength and control. Sport psychology is dubbed the “science of success” because it studies the four mental toughness skills such as motivation, confidence, concentration, and emotional and physiological control; that athletes use consistently, in conjunction with training and nutrition, to give them the ultimate performance edge.
The fitness world is expanding every day. From having a muscle bound body for the men, to a slim and trim look for the ladies. Everybody is on a continuous battle for achieving that perfect body. Exercise is extremely important to staying healthy both in body and mind. Being active can help a person continue to do things they enjoy and be independent as they age. Long term physical activity increases the benefits of long-term health.
So what’re you waiting for ?
What are your excuses ! ?
Rise and shine!
