Rule # 3-Move

Rule # 3-Move!

fat and happy kitty watching 'big bang' marathon while sitting:  
If this resembles your latest selfie, You Need to Read This.

 In an article last week I gave you The Only 4 Things You Need to Lose Weight. This is # 4 on that list.

Here’s something to think about:

A Swedish study, published this past summer, in the European Journal Of Preventive Cardiology followed nearly 800 subjects for almost 50 years.
Their conclusion: Only smokers died early at higher rates than couch potatoes.

As fat levels increase, so do blood pressure, low-density lipoprotein (LDL, or “bad”) cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, and inflammation. These changes translate into increased risk for coronary heart disease, stroke, and cardiovascular death: Obesity and Coronary Artery Disease, Diabetes and Cancer.
Reducing body weight by only 5% significantly reduces risk factors for heart disease and diabetes.

Think about that for a minute. ….
No, think about that while you’re watching TV for 37 hours a week (the average for Americans). Think about it when you look at your kids or grandkids or spouse.
Think about it when you order that Peppercorn Burger at Red Robin at 1970 calories.  
Read about #2 Pay Attention here.

 It doesn’t really matter what you do. I can tell you what works best and what works fastest. I can tell you how to work around old injuries or physical limitations. But anything is better than lying on the sofa eating chips and dip watching “Dancing with the Has-beens”.

Start out just walking if you need to and go from there. But do something!
