Why Reduced Food Intake Makes You Fatter

The idea is never to limit your food intake. It's not a reduced meal that will solve your bulging tummy, weight gain or high LDL. I don't know why it cannot sink into the heads of thick-skulled folks that a balanced diet is always the remedy.

And balanced diet means you eat everything.

And I mean everything. Everything in right proportions. Don't be biased with certain foods but be democratic. Something like a pluralist perception of food. Just remember that the key phrase is "in right proportions."

Reducing your food intake either makes you too slim, malnourished and sluggish or eat more. If you're malnourished and sluggish, you move less and burn less fat and calories. Remaining sluggish a long time can develop the habit. And when you get too starved because you've been eating less a long time, you start eating with a vengeance. Now, imagine tripling your food intake while remaining sluggish.

That's why you get fatter.

I was surprised to see after researching on it that living a simple life has lots of health benefits. And I believe it is a must adjunct to regular workouts and healthy eating habits. If you want to be really healthy, you must start living a simple life.

One way of living simply is sleeping better. Trying to beat deadlines and accomplish too many tasks at a time can ruin healthy sleeping habits.

I can stop here---better sleep. You get this everyday and you're on your way to tiptop health. And it's all possible only if you simplify your life. Cut out too much exposure to the TV, PC, CP (cellphone) and DVD. Get rid of that gadget addiction. In fact, cut out everythi…

Middle Age? Here's How You Start Getting Really Fit

Most middle age folks (age 45 to 55 or 60) think they're past their fitness potential and simply resign to having soft, flabby, saggy or flaccid muscles. It's also mainly due to serious ailments like diabetes or heart problems that they end up like that.

But they should never give up. Middle age is still a right time to start all over again. You can still start keeping fit at this stage. You just need to work closely with your medical doctor, asking him what suits your physical condition.

I'd start shaping up if I were you.

Here's what I did to shape up effectively. Click here!

You can start with the very basic. It's better than nothing. I always tell people to start with leisurely walking. I started there when I started working out again after stopping for a long while. I started being a fitness buff when I was in grade 7. That went on until college when my workouts became irregular, though I still managed to go to a gym and develop a muscled body.

But some time a…
