Do This to Live Better!!

You need exercise and you need to eat better! Your wife says it, your kids say it and your co-workers are even worried about you, so why aren’t you worried?!

Today, accept it or not, we are so blessed living in the UK despite Covid-19 and worry for what Brexit could mean to your supply of foreign food. Whatever happens, you will still be able to get a KitKat and Lucozade Sport for your mid-morning snack attack – dead cert. The reality is that the world is a smaller place due to agricultural advancements and better transport systems that can ship you your favourite foods from around the world in no time. To the point that supermarkets have to send that same food to food wastage. What a world we live in?!

As a father, son, brother like yourself I know how important putting food on the table is to you. It’s a trick of Shaytaan though, for you to put any old food on the table and save the rest of the money for going out with the guy’s under the guise of networking. You need good food and so does the family!

Raw and Organic foods are in your area right now I’m sure. Investing the extra into a couple of meals each week that can reduce your risk of high blood pressure, diabetes and various other illnesses, its a no brainer, right?! 

I do understand that you’re low on time but if that’s the case I’m assuming you have no time of Xbox, Netflix, Satellite TV and never touch the radio except when in the car. If you have one or more of the above you can make time to eat around the table, with the family and you can find time to exercise. If you had a phone call from your doctor telling you ‘’you have 3 weeks to live unless you start eating X, Y, Z’’ you’d be in the supermarket before hitting the red button on your phone. That’s called motivation and a will to live, so why wait for the phone call?

Clean eating for one person is a bad day of eating for another but if you take the example shown in the EatWell Guide you’ll be off to a winning start. Reducing sugar, salt and trans fats are important because they are known to scupper fitness and health journeys but for greater detail get in touch with me.

Exercise is fun, easy and should take the shape that most pleases you and your lifestyle. What you lean towards doesn’t even have to be “exercise’’ but rather “physical activity’’. This activity has to get your heart pumping and a level of “muscular work’’. Examples you may enjoy include Football, Rugby, Martial Arts, Running, Swimming, Walking or Cycling. The gym environment is another option that could be accessible 24/7 in your area (outside Covid19). If you need a gym plan that fits your lifestyle and goals give me a shout.

Tomorrow, when you get into work and snack time comes around, pull out the fruit, water and have a good day knowing you are having the last laugh as you begin your new health, fitness and nutritional journey.
