Are fast food chains the “bad guys”? Are we all genetically pre-disposed to be “fat” or “skinny”? Or, is there another factor contributing to the widespread obesity problem?
We are exposed on a daily basis to hundreds of advertisements, many promoting specific foods that are supposed to be convenient and nutritious.
Health is everything not the number on your weight scale. Numerous studies have proven that personal food choices, lack of exercise, and genetic disposition all play a role in a person’s weight; however, there are other elements that influence our weight. In particular, food producers that supply the high calorie, minimally nutritious, and highly processed foods that dominate our market must be examined.
Your goal should always be to attain better health.
- No matter if you are skinny or if you are overweight, depending how much you weight, both the versions could be unhealthy.
- If you aim towards a better health, eat clean, exercise regularly, sleep for 7-8 hours and keep your self hydrated, right weight will happen.
Health should always be your priority.
There are better ways to measure your health other than the number on your weighing scale. However, since the media has filled our minds with insane beauty standards we feel skinny is healthy (which is so not true).
Media has an entire beauty and wellness companies to serve. Hence, the beauty parameters they set for us is just a marketing gimmick. Don’t fall for such baseless marketing strategies. Cause the day you will understand the importance of real health you may not even buy the “Healthy biscuits” they sell you or the pre-cooked “Healthy oats”, which is apparently full of sodium and preservatives.
Deborah Cohen for the Washington Post wrote in one article, “The food industry spends billions of dollars each year to develop products, packaging, advertising and marketing techniques that entice us to buy more food because selling more food means making more profits” (Cohen). If you think about it, we are constantly being enticed to purchase things we don’t need, and that includes food.
Attaining better health is not easy but it’s not rocket science as well. Health should always be your priority, Don’t get confused with number on your weight scale. Let me share the basics that health care industry don’t want you to know.
To attain better health or to lose excess fat “Stick to BASICS” :
- Eat Local and seasonal fruits and vegetables
- Cut down processed food completely
- Eat enough fat to make sure your not constipated
- Must include raw vegetables in your daily diet (try to add it in form of salad)
- Exercise regularly
- Don’t overeat no matter how tasty your food is.
- Eat home-cooked food to avoid trans fat from restaurant food
- Sleep for 7-8 hours
- Drink water according to your weight
- Stay stress free
Health is of utmost importance, but many people do not make eating well and exercising a priority until their health deteriorates.Apurva
