How is it that some people seem to avoid sickness while you and your family are in and out of the doctor every other week? Is there something you don’t know? When generally healthy people are compared to those who get sick more often, several lifestyle differences clearly stand out.
So if you want to stay healthy, you may want to adopt the seven habits healthy people typically follow.
Everyone stores fat differently. Some people are heavy around the hips and lower body (often called pear-shaped), others around the waist and upper body (apple-shaped), and many people’s fat is spread evenly between their upper and lower body. What category do you fall in?
They’re called fad diets because they’re popular for a short while until people realize they don’t work and then they fade away into the past. Some diet trends last longer than others, but they all have this in common: they don’t provide safe, lasting weight loss. Yes, they may help you lose weight quickly, but it won’t be the safe, healthy way, and it won’t stick for long. As soon as the diet stops and you eat regular foods again, the weight comes back.
“I’ll just eat one bite.”
“This time won’t hurt me.”
“What’s one little indulgence?”
Can you hear these words in your head as you reach for the food you love? While enjoying small servings of sweets and high-calorie foods and drinks every once in a while isn’t a big deal, it’s those small servings every day or every meal that can quickly add up to extra pounds.
Sometimes it’s hard to estimate what kind of damage those calories are doing to your waistline. Food labels list the number of calories per serving, but what does that number really mean? If you knew how long you’d have to run to burn off that cookie, you may think twice before indulging.
