5 Tips to Beat Obesity

You may have heard that it was said, "You are what you eat." This isn't always true, but there is something to be said for eating too much or eating a bunch of food that's bad for you. You won't become a fatty, greasy piece of pizza if you eat it, but you may become obese or overweight if you eat too much pizza, too often. You won't become a carrot if you eat it either! You can become someone that obese if you eat obese inducing foods. Not to worry, we are going to give you 5 tips to jumpstart you on your beating obesity.

1. Listen
A lot of us, when we are looking for something to eat have a little voice in our head warning us not to eat what we are looking at. This little voice seems to disappear after we begin eating, and then it shows up near the end of our meal, right before dessert. Listen to that voice the first time if you know that the food or drink is going to be bad for you. If you decide to eat that bad food, eat a little bit of it and be done. If you go to a restaurant, eat half of your meal and then put the other half in the box.

2. Work-out
Working out is a long lost thing of the past. I mean, you have a few guys that work out hard, they look good, but we need more of those people. If you need something to help you help you to get started, start with trying to do 20 pushups. If that is easy for you consider doing the Batman workout. The main thing is to get off the couch and get going. You can't lose fat when you do nothing to burn the fat. We have tons of workouts to help you. Get up!

3. Invest
Invest in good food for your diet. So many people buy fatty, junky, and poor quality food that the body absolutely despises. Your taste buds may think that it tastes good, but your body is screaming and yelling that it is poison and detrimental to you. Invest in some fresh produce, good whole grains, nuts, and other good foods. Stop paying very little for food that just isn't worth giving a second thought to and invest some money in good foods.

4. Slower is Better
Losing weight slower is better than losing it fast because you never really get used to being lighter than you were. When you lose weight fast your body doesn't get the message until months after you have lost the weight. By then you have started to go back to eating your junk food. Eat your good foods, work out, and lose weight as it comes. Losing your weight slower is way better than losing it fast. Fat doesn't burn that quick anyways!

5. Run
This tip may be something that not everyone can do. If you can't run then jog or walk. Get out into that summer heat and burn some fat off. Take plenty of water as you can become dehydrated while running, jogging, or walking. Don't just sit at home and watch this beautiful season go by without taking full advantage of it. Run like Usain Bolt does when he runs his record pace. Uh...maybe we can't run that fast, but we can still run and workout to get to a place where we are fit and built.

I'm glad you guys have joined us in our weight loss journeys. These tips have helped me immensely and I urge you to please use these tips and share them with family and friends. Implement these tips to get the body that you want and beat obesity with a vengeance. We all dream and wish that we could have a body like Batman, Thor, or maybe even Captain America, but keep in mind that it takes dedication and a will to want to change your body. Let's do it!

  1. Giving probiotics to kids isn’t harmful. That’s the plain and simple answer. The bacteria are naturally found in the human gut. This applies both to kids and to adults.

    While some strains of beneficial bacteria could be better for little ones than others, opting for a specialized probiotic formula is definitely safe.
