Exercise and Eating – Some Thoughts

It takes a conscious effort to shift long-standing habits.

Exercise is a required component of lifestyle – just like eating and sleep.

Those who don’t find time to exercise will have to find time for illness.

Apparently, 70% of the way you look is based upon what you eat.

The French live to eat. The English eat to die.

Think about how food is affecting you at a cellular level.

Going through the exercise “gate” will develop other healthy habits.

Move your body to tone your mood.

Positive mental health is enhanced by exercise.

Muscle is more metabolically active than fat.

You’ve been misled. A calorie is not a calorie. A Twinkie is not the same as an egg. Think about it.

All of the above makes so much sense, so why do I find it so hard to actually do it? Humans truly are self-forgetting machines. Making a commitment to change can cause considerable anxiety, self-doubt and ambivalence. To maintain the status quo is easier in the short term, but probably detrimental in the long.
