Failed Weight Loss Programs... Can It Be Made Better?

May 20, 2008
The state of being healthy is basically referred to as fitness. It would be great if people could commit themselves to fitness for life.

According to the Bible, our body is our temple. We therefore have an obligation to keep our body healthy. Certainly for this reason, it is a remarkable act to maintain health of both the mind and the body.

This requires both hard work and careful action. It does not matter how difficult it is to keep a healthy life, but it is rewarding. Of course only the few people that work for it are able to achieve a lifetime of happiness and health.

Exercising for fitness is an important part of a healthy daily routine. People are able to fight several diseases through exercise and keeping fit. The heart disease is regarded as one of the killer diseases.

The trend is becoming more popular to ignore activity. This is why a lot of people are suffering from various illnesses. Hospitals are profiting now more than ever, mainly because patients don't follow the doctors' orders.

In fact, teenagers nowadays don't usually follow the suggested activities for fitness and health by the Council of the President on Physical Fitness and the Surgeon General. This makes up 33% of the United States population.

The poor physical fitness habits of today's nation's youth will carry with them right into adulthood. The amount of people suffering from diseases will only rise in numbers.

According to a report by the National Institute on Aging, only 58% of Americans are engaged in a program of lifetime fitness. They only follow their fitness program on their spare time. Sadly, there are only a quarter of them that are habitual participants in the lifetime fitness program. Oftentimes, approximately three times every week.

A commitment to a lifetime of exercise is important. But far too often, many people neglect it. Often, people disregard the fact that it will really enhance their lives.

Perhaps you are already aware that the common local causes of deaths are heart disease, stroke, accidents caused by unintended injuries, cancer and chronic lower respiratory ailments. The Center for Disease Control reports these diseases are among the 5 most common causes of death each year.

Fatality from these five common diseases can be avoided easily. As mentioned, common causes of death may be easily avoided. This could only occur if people would focus on fitness exercise more so, to allow for a commitment into a lifetime fitness program. Accidental deaths are not included.

A lifetime fitness program does not only deal with physical exercise. This program includes following a diet.
It is likely that the commitment to physical fitness will offer a longer life as well as a happier one. You'll get a lot more out of life, including picking more daisies, if you keep your mind and body healthy.

It's your decision. What will you choose - work toward a lifetime of fitness or be lazy and face the consequences?
