People should never forget that regular physical activity is important for their overall health and well-being. Exercise

helps you build strength and fitness, decreases your risk of heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, and high blood

pressure, aids weight loss, improves sleep and reduces stress.


It’s not a secret that many people give up after they exercise for a few days. The reason is that they think they can lose large amounts of weight in a short period of time. And when they don’t, they feel disappointed. That’s why you shouldn’t set short term goals and have unrealistic expectations. If you want to lose 25 pounds, promise yourself that you will lose about a pound a week.


For some people it is especially difficult to start. Begin with a little exercise. Then add some more and more until it becomes a habit. Try to be active for 30-60 minutes on most days. Such activities as walking your dog, working in your garden, taking the stairs instead of the elevator, or riding you’re your bike are useful as well.


If you have an opportunity, hire a personal trainer. He will be able to help you design an exercise plan with the right combination of cardiovascular exercise and resistance training. And a good exercise plan will help you achieve better results and improve in strength and fitness. You can also ask your trainer to design a nutrition program that matches your activity level.


Exercise and proper food intake go hand in hand. The food choices you make every day affect your health as well as physical activity. You should choose healthy, balanced and well apportioned meals. Remember that the maintenance of a healthy diet is a habit which must be adopted for the whole of the life.


If you want to be healthy, eat more fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole grains, calcium-rich foods, lean meat, poultry fish, bins, peas. Avoid food that is rich in cholesterol, added sugars, salt, saturated fats and trans fats. Drink low-fat or fat-free milk. Choose foods packed with vitamins, minerals, fiber, but low in calories. Avoid alcohol, or at least be moderate.


Unfortunately today many people are overweight or obese. It is rather dangerous to their health because carrying extra weight puts them at risk for developing many diseases, including diabetes, heart disease and cancer. So lowering your weight is important to prevent these diseases.


If you want to lose your weight, you should take into account both the kinds and the amount of food you eat. The average intake calories depends on many factors: your sex, age, weight, height, activity level, etc. Count the calories you take in as food and the calories you expend every day. Eat a little less than what you can easily consume and avoid fast, fried and fatty food.

« What does a healthy way of life mean? How do you look after your health?

People nowadays are more health-conscious than they used to be. They understand that good health is above wealth.

To be healthy we should avoid different bad habits that can affect our health. In my opinion, smoking and drinking too much alcohol are the worst ones. It’s common knowledge that smoking and drinking can shorten our lives dramatically. Smoking, for example, causes a number of heart and lung diseases, such as pneumonia, emphysema and cancer. Besides, it makes your teeth yellow and skin unhealthy. Fortunately, in recent years smoking has received a lot of publicity, and fewer people smoke nowadays. Some companies don’t employ people who are smokers. Smoking has been banned in many public places because everyone agrees it does harm to our health. I don’t smoke, because I don’t want to have unhealthy skin and teeth and die young.

Smoking and drinking are joined by less dangerous habits, such as skipping meals, eating unhealthy food, or even overeating. Of course, they are not quite as deadly as smoking or drinking alcohol, but they also affect our health.

If we eat too much, we’ll become obese, and obesity leads to serious health problems. A lot of people like drinking cola and coffee, and enjoys pizzas and hamburgers. But what is tasty is not always healthy. Fast food makes you fat, that’s why Americans are the fattest people in the world.

In recent years eating habits have undergone a change. People are encouraged to eat less fat and more fibre. Fat is believed to be one of the major causes of obesity and heart disease. High fibre and low fat foods can now be found in all shops and supermarkets. Salads, beans, and fruit have taken the place of steak and ice-cream. The fashion for health food is growing all the time. Many people feel, they are too fat, even if their doctors disagree. And a lot of people try to improve their fitness. There are a lot of ways to lose weight and avoid gaining it. Perhaps, the most popular of them is following a diet. If you want to lose weight, you should cut out snacks and desserts, and cut down on fat. People have also become more aware of calories, the energy value of food. Some people count the number of calories they eat every day; so that they can try to take in fewer calories and lose weight. /this is called a calorie-controlled diet. Manufactures are increasingly producing special foods with fewer calories for slimmers.

But excessive dieting may be dangerous, too. Some people refuse to eat meat as they consider it harmful. They say a vegetarian diet reduces the risk of cancer and vegetarians live longer than others. I can’t agree with them, because meat is an excellent source of good nutrition. In my opinion, it’s wrong to put down a food simply because excessive amounts can cause health problems. Consumed in moderate amounts, meat is perfectly good for our health.

To my mind, the only way to stay healthy and to keep fit is going in for spots. Among the benefits of regular exercise are a healthier heart, stronger bones, quicker reaction times and more resistance to various illness. Besides, you can eat and drink as much as you want because you are burning it all off. To be healthy, it is also very important to spend a lot of time in the open air. It is useful to go for a walk before going to bed, or to the room.

I think it is very important to be fit and healthy, and it is necessary to take care of your health. Being fat, in fact, can cause real problems.It is harder for fat people to get a good job, or even to make friends. If you want to do well, you must be thin. That’s why I go in for sports on a regular basis. I have been doing aerobics for three years and I feel great. I’m not enthusiastic about strict dieting, but I try to eat only low-fat food,fruit and vegetables which are rich in vitamins. Personally I believe that regularity in life promotes our health. Sleeping eight or nine hours, getting up early, regular meals, a healthy diet, and going in for sports is really a good way to live.
