Today I and Lorette went out to the Farmers Market and picked up some nutritious foods to juice up and put into our systems to replenish our bodies. So what was today's learning experience? The importance of taking care of your body starting from the inside out because what’s life without proper health?
You must start on the inside of your body if you ever expect to drop that weight, bring out that six pack or live a healthier lifestyle. A year or so ago I was extremely unhealthy from smoking cigarettes to eating junk foods on a regular basis and consuming the least amount of water I possibly could.
Today that lifestyle is over and I consume anywhere from 3 to 6 cups of water a day, workout 6 days a week (at least I try to haha) and properly consume the right foods for my body to thrive! Now don’t get me wrong I’m not saying these things to show off or boast in the fact I’m doing better than most, the point of this blog post is to get the point across that we all need to live healthier lifestyle for our friends, family, loved ones and last but not least ourselves.
I just want to hit a few things on the head to bring to life the importance of being health conscious:
- By the year 2023 the obesity rate is expected to climb to 51% in North American (That’s more than half of the United States considered obese)
- More than one-third of the U.S. adults are considered obese (That’s 35.7%) and approximately 17% or (12.5million) children and adolescents aged 2-19 years are obese
- Studies show that young adults who frequently attend religious activities are 50% more likely to become obese by middle age compared with those who don’t take part in any religious events.
- If obesity continues the projection of diabetes’s will raise to 7.9 million new cases a year compared to 1.9 million the recent years including 6.8 million new cases of chronic heart disease and stroke
See ladies and gentlemen I could easily throw facts out there all day long and stress the importance of getting healthy but that isn't enough is it? You’re exactly right that’s not enough and that’s why I’m going to give you solutions and not just something to think about.
So today challenge yourselves to be more health conscious and to develop a burning desire to attain the body you have always wanted for 90 days at a time! I invite all of you to join me on a 90 day weight loss and fitness Challenge to lose weight, get fit, or maintain a healthier lifestyle.
