Preach it sister! Actually as someone who's predominately vegetarian, I love carbs to death. But those simple, super refined carbs and sugar are evil I tell you, EVIL.

People live a very stressful life these days and as a result of which they face with a good number of health problems. Life is so busy that people don’t spent any time on exercising or relaxing. This results in tension, high blood pressure, depression, health problems and frustration. Just being physically fit can help you get rid of most of the above problems.

Spend some time with your children and play games with them, if you can get yourself involved with them for an hour or so you will be more active then before. Relaxing will reduce any depression from your body
and you will feel refresh. Go out for a walk or swimming with a friend of your and try not to discuss any of your office works. The main purpose here is to forget everything and relax as much as you can.

Diet? Diet?!?!?!?! Ive never been on a diet an entire day of my life. Diets mean that you arent eating as much, which means that you might be missing out on some key nutrition that your body might need to help maintain stability. People just need to keep themselves active. Diets cause stress on your body and your immune system. Don't do them.

Diet doesn't always mean reduction of food...it can mean a change in type of food, but same amount of caloric intake.

And I agree that exercise/activity is the key--both to fitness and to mental/psychological health. Human beings were meant to run around!

i have a horrible addiction to sugar. sometimes it gets so bad that all i will eat is candy. when i was 20 yrs old i went from 120lbs to 180lbs. I felt miserable.

it took me two years but i lost a total of 60lbs. the key for me was focusing on one thing at a time. So for the first year i thought nothing about changing what i ate, but i devoted all my energy into getting myself to exercise. It took some time, and id miss weeks at time, but after a few months i got a routine going. the second year i started South Beach Diet and i also became a certified personal trainer. South Beach is a great program because it teaches you how to eat healthy. there is a general fear of "carbs," which is not healthy, but this diet teaches you how to eat from all the food groups in a healthy way. On this diet i lost all my cravings for candy. I didnt even want it. I lost a lot of weight. The diet requires considerable time, though. i was only working weekends at the time so I could do it. Its also expensive.

Once i got a 9-5 job i stopped the diet, stopped exercising, and put on weight again. Not a lot, just ten pounds, but i felt gross again. Ever since then my life has been a bit of turmoil and I havent established a good workout program. My weight has fluctuated between 130 - 145lbs. My eating habits are terrible again, too. But one thing at a time. I am working on getting a good workout program going. I think this next year will be the year. I am moving to a better location (there are no sidewalks here to run on) and i will have more time.

Looking forward to next year!

no its not bad. but if I consider that if I put on only 3lbs a year, in thirty years i will weight 230lbs! that means by the time im 50 yrs old i will be sick and practically immobile. And thats only 3lbs/yr. imagine if it were 5lbs or 10lbs a year. id die by the time i was 60. 50 is retirement time. i dont want to be sick, dying, and confined to a chair then! i want to travel and enjoy my time off. So while the weight im at right now isnt bad, if i keep putting on a little weight all the time (which is what is happening with my current lifestyle) then i will have no life by the time i can explore the world. and thats not even considering the weight i will put on when i have kids. men are so lucky that they dont have to have babies.
