We need to start making steps and changes in our lifestyle behaviors to not only lower our risk of dying from COVID-19 but also to lower our risk of the above aforementioned preventable diseases associated with obesity.
So how can we better our situation? Although it’s true that today we are more educated on the BENEFITS of proper fitness and eating sensibly, we are not more educated on the PROCESS of making these two elements part of our daily lives, despite any constraints that may hinder us in doing so. We are substituting activity for fitness and medically-wise, they are not the same and cannot yield us the same health, fitness and aesthetic gains that we long for and desire. Our mindset and attitude must improve - as we have become a culture that “if we don’t like to do it, then we don’t have to do it.’” A cultural and mental shift is in order.
The most effective way to lose weight and to keep that weight off is to choose an eating/diet plan and fitness regimen that you can maintain today, next month, next year and years from now – with of course some minor tweaking and adjusting.
