you eat. For rapid weight loss, you want to completely eliminate junk food from your diet, if only for
a short period of time. This means that if you want a snack, you must have an apple or an orange

Exercise is another way that you can go about achieving fast weight loss. We consider the use of sport

overweight, the more quickly you can see a decrease in body weight, which often happens quickly.

Life expectancy of Americans has increased dramatically over the last century. Now we can expect to live 77 years, who has 30 years longer than previously. Taking care of our bodies, we could easily live a long and healthy life.
People live longer
There are more people in the United States over 100 years than ever before, around about 50,000. Since these people are not related, they have different genes. Some thought it was an important factor in longevity, but it only plays a small role. Other factors that play an important role in our lives are the environment, employment, exercise, family relationships, social relationships and emotional health. Of course, living longer does not always mean being healthy and happy.
Make positive changes in life
There are no pills that make us live longer, or treatments that are guaranteed. For many people, how the body ages is their perogative. There are practical steps you can take to feel better and live longer. Aging with dignity is not a matter of luck - you must work to stay healthy! You should be motivated to take these steps and be consistent.
Many times people wait until they are past middle age and have a health crisis before any action is taken to ensure a healthier life. For some, this is too late. Others may benefit from a radical change, and give you the opportunity to enjoy the golden years. Alternative medicines are available to help fight against many common diseases.
Practical measures for all
Doctors have told us for years to get out and move. Overall we are not getting enough exercise because of the high technology and improvements in all aspects of work. For better health, it is recommended to have 30 minutes of exercise a day. This helps to many health problems such as keeping weight down and strengthening the heart and other muscles in the body. If you do not practice alone, ask a friend to walk or go to the gym with you.
Eating the right combination of food, fiber, low fat fruit and vegetables is a big factor in communities and areas in our world, where there are people who will live longer. Do not smoke or quit smoking if you want to prevent diseases caused by tobacco. Drink plenty of water and less soft drinks or alcohol.
The mental and emotional health contributes to overall health as well. People with large families or social contact do not have much time to feel lonely or desperate. Others spend their time volunteering somewhere or providing a service where they feel useful and productive. Someone who is always looking for new things to learn can be active and more likely to engage in life. People with a sense of accomplishment and purpose are generally healthier and happier.
Be in good health now
Watch for signs of health problems. If you have a problem, go to the doctor and get checked out. If you let go of something that will give you less chance of returning to good health. Have regular checkups so things can be treated as soon as possible. Begin to change your habits now - do not hesitate. If you are overweight, change your diet. If you do not get any exercise, you need to start now.
If you have a health problem, consult a doctor and get treatment. If you are alone and lonely, discover a new way to meet and help people. If you have bad habits begin to change them today. One day you may be able to join other 100 plus older folks as they enjoy a long and healthy life and fulfilling!

"The Way to Wellness" It's time to start a Healthy life: your 7 days program
How many times have you gone to sleep at night, swearing you'll go to the gym in the morning, and then changing your mind just eight hours later because when you get up, you don't feel like exercising?
While this can happen to the best of us, it doesn't mean you should drop the ball altogether when it comes to staying fit. What people need to realize is that staying active and eating right are critical for long-term health and wellness -- and that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. The more you know about how your body responds to your lifestyle choices, the better you can customize a nutrition and exercise plan that is right for you. When you eat well, increase your level of physical activity, and exercise at the proper intensity, you are informing your body that you want to burn a substantial amount of fuel. This translates to burning fat more efficiently for energy.
In other words, proper eating habits plus exercise equals fast metabolism, which, in turn gives you more energy throughout the day and allows you to do more physical work with less effort.
The true purpose of exercise is to send a repetitive message to the body asking for improvement in metabolism, strength, aerobic capacity and overall fitness and health. Each time you exercise, your body responds by upgrading its capabilities to burn fat throughout the day and night, Exercise doesn't have to be intense to work for you, but it does need to be consistent.
I recommend engaging in regular cardiovascular exercise four times per week for 20 to 30 minutes per session, and resistance training four times per week for 20 to 25 minutes per session. This balanced approach provides a one-two punch, incorporating aerobic exercise to burn fat and deliver more oxygen, and resistance training to increase lean body mass and burn more calories around the block.
Here's a sample exercise program that may work for you:
* Warm Up -- seven to eight minutes of light aerobic activity intended to increase blood flow and lubricate and warm-up your tendons and joints.
* Resistance Training -- Train all major muscle groups. One to two sets of each exercise. Rest 45 seconds between sets.
* Aerobic Exercise -- Pick two favorite activities, they could be jogging, rowing, biking or cross-country skiing, whatever fits your lifestyle. Perform 12 to 15 minutes of the first activity and continue with 10 minutes of the second activity. Cool down during the last five minutes.
* Stretching -- Wrap up your exercise session by stretching, breathing deeply, relaxing and meditating.
When starting an exercise program, it is important to have realistic expectations. Depending on your initial fitness level, you should expect the following changes early on.
* From one to eight weeks -- Feel better and have more energy.
* From two to six months -- Lose size and inches while becoming leaner. Clothes begin to fit more loosely. You are gaining muscle and losing fat.
* After six months -- Start losing weight quite rapidly.
Once you make the commitment to exercise several times a week, don't stop there. You should also change your diet and/or eating habits,' says Zwiefel. Counting calories or calculating grams and percentages for certain nutrients is impractical. Instead, I suggest these easy-to-follow guidelines:
* Eat several small meals (optimally four) and a couple of small snacks throughout the day
* Make sure every meal is balanced -- incorporate palm-sized proteins like lean meats, fish, egg whites and dairy products, fist-sized portions of complex carbohydrates like whole-wheat bread and pasta, wild rice, multigrain cereal and potatoes, and fist-sized portions of vegetable and fruits
* Limit your fat intake to only what's necessary for adequate flavor
* Drink at least eight 8-oz. glasses of water throughout the day
* I also recommend that you take a multi-vitamin each day to ensure you are getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
I suppose that's all I can think of for now. I should extend my thanks to a doctor friend of mine. Without him, I wouldn't be able to write this article, or keep my sanity.
Enjoy life, we all deserve it.
