“I was tired of being tired and carrying my own weight. Every step I took I felt in my legs, knees, and my soul.” Yani Rocafor said when she talks about how was her life when she weighed 400 pounds and had a lot of health problems. One day she woke up and decided to change her life because she could not play with her kids and enjoy her life with her family. She said everything is about discipline, perseverance, and passion. So she started to walk one hour every day, and change the food that she used to eat and now after one year she lost 100 pounds and she feel that she is living again. Whit this point we understand that be healthy is important. You don’t need to make drastic changes just doing basic changes related to food and exercise. Eating well, keeping active and keeping your mind healthy are the key to have a good health. You do not need to be on a diet, you only need to know how to combine your foods, having colors in your plate is the key to start choosing your food well, avoiding the white color and having more green, red and yellow.
For example, starting your morning with a shaker of protein such as blueberries and banana juice, then having a morning snack eating yogurt, nuts or other fruit. For lunch you can have pasta if you want, however, is important to have some vegetables, other good idea is fish or chicken with salad and you can repeat this for your dinner and before your dinner you should have an evening snack. If you accompany it with daily activity your body will thank you. It doesn’t mean that you need to go the gym or pay for a personal trainer, you just need to keep active. For example, is proven by the University of Cambridge if you walk 20 minutes a day can avoid falling in overweight and if you are already with overweight doing this every day you’ll help your body after 3 months to reduce at least 30% of your weight. Also, I recommend you that try to be active all of the time, that means use the stairs instead of the elevator, or do some exercise while you are watching TV. A little change can become a huge change in your life and this will help you to maintain your healthy mind.
Keeping you mind healthy is going to help you to have Self-confidence, it means you can fell that you can do whatever you want because the healthier you feel, you are going to be happier, and that helps you achieve the things you want for your life. Because you are going to feel that you have more energy to do everything and you are more aware about how important is be healthy. Given the benefits of eating well, keeping active and keeping your mind healthy, people should start to do something to change their lifestyle because according to the National Institutes of Health, obesity and overweight together are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. An estimated 300,000 deaths per year are due to the obesity epidemic and saying this you should know that health is really easy to destroy it, but then it is very hard, and sometimes even impossible, to rebuild it.
