Frankly, This is the Truth about a Healthy Fit Life and Wellness
I guess that's life---you can do what you can but you often end up guessing what happens next.

But then, you also have to be exact. Accurate.

Truth is, you don't know what's coming to you, whether you'd still be in good health tomorrow or not. You may have the best of health today but you don't know about an hour or day after if that would still hold true.

Health condition can drastically change in a moment.

Of course, they tell us to keep positive about it all. And we have to. I believe that with all my heart.

Yet, at the same time, we have to lean on the Creator---the Author of life, health and healing---depending on Him entirely and not being too confident about ourselves and what we do, can do and achieve.

There are two extreme views on this---no, three:

1. Others eat all they want, do no exercises, abuse their health and then claim that their faith in God will save them from ailments---relying "entirely" on God and keeping positive about it all.

2. On the other hand, there are those who rely solely on their rigid workouts, sophisticated diets and fitness supplements, laughing at any hint of Divine intervention.

3. Third are those who imagine themselves neutral or in between. They eat a little of this and that, think that their travel to work is enough exercise for them (they don't want to over exert themselves), and they believe a bit of this and that about God.

So, where do you belong?

In my case, I do what fits my body and lifestyle, eat what's healthy for me, and then rely entirely on God, depending on his grace on a daily basis. It's both spiritual and scientific.

It's not a little of everything but complete ingredients of what you really need.

I have learned that in life, you have to do what is right. But remember---even doing the right things will go dead wrong if you leave out God from it. It's not how right you are but how faithful.

When done this way, God catches you when you fall. I mean, there may be important things or details you forget to do in life, but if you rely on God by faith, he still completes the picture for you.

By grace, everything becomes exact---becomes well. That's wellness.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…

Both Laziness and Busyness Make You Fat?

Well, it's a combination of laziness, busyness and technology. In your laziness you relegate all chores to technology in the guise of busyness. Instead of manually washing your clothes, for instance, you buy a washing machine because you say you are too busy to do it yourself.

When I was in high school and college, not only did I do manual laundry, I also used an old-fashioned water pump for it. Since we had the water pump in the backyard, my dad said using it instead of turning on the faucet would save us lots of money on our water bill. So I did that for years. No wonder I didn't get fat even if I ate a lot.

Metabolism? Well, it helped some, but I also got easily overweight when I ate too much. There was a time when I gained weight so that my face doubled in size (no, I think it tripled). It was the time when I did nothing but man our small retail store where I ate most of the food items being sold.

Here's another example. You use the elevator or escalator even if you&#…
