Diet and Nutrition
A turducken is a chicken inside a duck inside a turkey. Someday maybe I’ll try this dish, whose name isn’t very appetizing. Since I live a healthy lifestyle, for the most part, I don’t overdo the meal or eat until I’m stuffed. This might be a topic on another blog.
With Thanksgiving among us, some people try to accomodate their vegetarian friends, guest or family. Tofurkey didn’t seem to catch on but is still around as are many meat substitutes.
So now an omnivore creates the Veggieducken. It’s a meatless dish of yams inside leeks inside a banana squash.
If it works for you, it should be something to give thanks for.
At my peak weight, I weighed over 280 pounds.Currently I am between 195-200 pounds. My overall weight plateau fluctuated between 245-260.
I finally saw a dramatic weight loss when I replaced “white” foods with whole wheat and grain foods. I completely cut sugar. I would use at least 4 teaspoons in my coffee, now I drink it black. I went from white enriched bread to whole wheat. White rice to brown rice. White potatoes to sweet and purple potatoes. White pasta to whole wheat pasta.
Unlike some, I don’t have gluten issues and the change was totally beneficial healthwise for me. ‘Whites’ have no nutrient value whereas the whole grains fiber and are more filling and loaded with nutrients.
These foods also give more energy and are more filling. Along with fruits and vegetables, greens, legumes, nuts, seeds, etc., I find my food actually helps me lose weight. Add exercise, and I am a powerhouse of calorie burning fat.
I workout at the gym about 3 days a week On my job, I do a lot of walking. I can easily get over 10000 steps a day according to my pedometer. I live on the 15th floor and often walk up a flight of 150 stairs, often doubling up on stair climbing.
I also take a good weight loss supplement, such as Instant Knockout. Do your research on which supplements work best. A good review website like the one I found will be a big help, it’s where I read an IKO review before I decided to try it.
I suggest joining local health fanatic groups in your area or on the internet. I found a way to socialize and exercise at my local Meetup.com. Fitocracy is a good internet resource.
Once you eat the proper foods, you will find that the energy to exercise will follow. The important thing is to go from a body at rest to a body in motion. Start moving and changing. The results will shock you as your lifestyle changes and your energy level will soar.
It is a known fact that if you are not taking care of your body, you are going to end up putting yourself at risk. If you are a man and you have your family to take care of, you should prioritize your health and change your unhealthy lifestyle. Nutrition is one aspect you should take a look at to keep yourself fit. It does not mean that if you eat only vegetables and fruits that you are assured to be healthy. A healthy man eats a balanced meal, keeps a healthy lifestyle by doing regular exercise and avoids vices and other unhealthy activities.
It is no longer a little known fact that men, just like women, have health problems that is alarmingly increasing. One is heart disease, especially for men between 45 years old to 54 years. One cause is excessive weight. Without regular exercise, you are bound to get weight increase. It can also be the cause of high blood pressure which is considered as the silent killer. It slowly damages the arteries in your body.
The food that you eat greatly contributes to your health and you should always be careful with what you put inside your body. Seeing a doctor is best for you to find out if you are prone to these types of ailments. You can also be provided with great suggestions which can improve your health. Another positive thing you can get in meeting with a professional is their ability to recommend reliable health supplements which can enhance your current state.
Should you be diagnosed with any of these ailments, you can be sure they can give you the right medication to resolve the problem. You should be open to lifestyle change because your treatment will not be of any help if you continue to poison your body with your old ways.
