How many times have you planned to cut bad foods out of your life and thought about exercising but never actually done it? Or you started with great intention but fizzled out within a month?
In South Africa, almost half of the women are obese, and we have the highest obesity rate in sub-Saharan Africa. About 14% of the country’s men are obese, and this figure is climbing.
Why are so many of us overweight and struggling with weight-related health issues? Stress plays a huge role in our bad eating and sedentary lifestyles – convenient food (fast food) and sitting in front of our televisions and computers has become the not-so-healthy norm.
If we want to be healthy and live a long life, we must get real about our unhealthy habits. This means we need to start eating correctly and getting active to achieve real health. To get healthy and stay healthy, you need to be realistic about your lifestyle. So where do you start?
Get real about your weight
The first thing to tackle is your actual weight. Do you know how much you weigh? Most people don’t and especially people who are overweight because knowing their exact weight stresses them out.
Here’s the thing though, if you want to get healthy, you must:
- Get on that scale and confront your real weight.
- Work out your BMI (Body Mass Index) to find out if you are overweight or even obese.
- Get real about your lifestyle
- Get real about changing your bad habits
- Get real about your nutrition
- Get real and get off the couch, and
- Take real steps to good health
