Life's Reality on a Healthy Fit Life: Why the Health Conscious Still Get Sick

inspirefellowship.org

LIFE. I've been a health and fitness buff for decades, in fact since I was in grade school. I have researched lots of things about it and observed life's reality about a healthy fit life.

You need to keep working out, eating right and living a healthy lifestyle.

But here's reality---these things aren't guarantees that you won't get sick.

You get a better chance to live healthy and ailment-free with a healthy fit life, but you shouldn't rely on it alone. You must cling to a higher health Source. A lot of wrong things can suddenly happen despite your efforts---things no one can explain (not even medical experts)---so we need all the help we can get from Someone who is over and above us all and controls all things.

Sometimes it's a wonder why some folks who are conscious of what they eat suddenly turn out positive for gall bladder stone or high in their cholesterol levels, and things like that.

Some non-smokers and non-alcoholic drinkers I know sometimes look sicker than those who wallow in their bad vices.

How do you explain, for instance, the fact that non-smokers who inhale secondhand cigarette smoke are apt to suffer more than smokers themselves?

At times it pisses me off how I easily get the cold and cough while smokers never seem to have any problems with them. I just thank God that these days I don't catch them even if people around me sneeze and cough at me. It's all by God's grace, not my healthy fit life efforts.

Although we need to continue with a healthy fit life, no doubt. I guess this, too, falls under faith with works.

Get healthy and fit. Benefit from wellness secrets. But understand that only God brings everything to fulfillment.

Here's a sample on God's Health Plan for us:

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…

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&#…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.
