Sleep

Sleep plays a very large part in being healthy. Sleep deprivation can lead to long term risk of many health problems such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and strokes. When you don’t sleep your body wants energy so your body will crave fatty foods to get energy that doesn’t even last long enough for you to do anything so all you want to do is eat more. This will cause you to gain weight but unhealthy weight as well.

Anywere around 6-8 hours will give enough energy to last you through the day. Remember to keep this up for as long as you can to make it regular and so you body is used to it and you’re not always tired.

Health myths

  • Spot training helps burn fat in specific areas.

Many people believe that exercising a certain section of the body will make you lose weight in that particular place but that is not how it really works. Because of the way your body places your fat makes it so that when you burn calories it will take it away from everywhere not just the place you exercised. For example let say you want to thin out your arms so you do 20 pull ups a day that wont only burn weight just on your arms but in places where you don’t want to lose weight in.

  • You don’t need to exercise or change your diet while taking diet pills

Diet pills do not do as much as you think they do. Many people think they help you but they actually do nothing if you don’t exercise. They just aid you’re in weight loss. You need to change your diet or else you’ll lode the weight and then it will come back if you don’t do anything.

  • Starving yourself is the best way to lose weight

This statement is anything but true. This way of losing weight is very dangerous for your body. When your body hits a certain state of starving you will begin breaking down all of your body fat to get nutrients. This “diet” is very harmful to you and your body.

Exercise


Exercising is very important to being healthy. You must be able to maintain a healthy weight as well. It may sound easy but to most people find it very difficult to keep it up. You need to be able to find a comfortable place to exercise, good exercises you can keep up for a while maybe you can change it up once in a while, you also will need to set a time to do it every day and you must keep it up and not stop until you reach your goal weight. You may want to exercise once a week to maintain your weight and eat healthy as well. You also may want to find the appropriate weight for your height, age, and gender.

Food

When trying to maintain a healthy body you want to be able to make healthy food choice and know what is good for you and what is not. Stay away from fatty meats like bacon because your body can’t digest it as well as other foods. Another food to stay away from is chips, soda, and chocolate. Those foods don’t only cause acne but are packed with calories that are unhealthy and unnecessary. Some good food choices are veggies and fruits. Vegetables are mainly water so you can eat a lot of them and feel full, but not full of calories. Lots of people drink diet soda because they believe it “better for you “but in reality it is actually worse because it contains sucrose. Sucrose is a fake sugar that is not for you.

Religion

Religion falls under the mental health category. Faith is a healer, faith is something you can focus on to help you through tough times or even good ones. Praying daily is like meditation!

In conclusion

To be healthy you need to be committed so try to find the right diet for you that makes you feel good and healthy. You will feel great about yourself once you hit your healthy weight I promise. Try as hard as you can and nothing bad will happen only good things will come out to you.
