Fit Or Fat
What are you looking at?
Have you had a night where you just couldn’t sleep? So you got up, went into the living room, turned on the TV, laid on the couch, and watched infomercials. Right? I mean; unless you have some premium movie channel (which we don’t because the description is an oxymoron) you won’t get much on TV at 2:00 a.m. Have you ever noticed how many of those infomercials talk about fit or fat products? It’s a gigantimongous industry.
Fit or fat isn’t just in the eyes of the beholder.
People want to look like models, never get sick, and live forever…or at least a really long time. And they want to look the same until they die. As a culture we’re overweight, overfed, undernourished, out of shape, lacking hope, and just plain burnt out. That’s a shame. But the worst part is…we think the solution must be complicated. We think it must be in the right combination of diet products, or vitamins, or exercise gurus.
(obnoxious buzzer sound inserted here) Wrong!
It’s none of those things. And it’s not complicated. Oh sure, you can make it complicated. And if you need to wrap your brain around some big words like phytonutrients or hyluronic or mass-spectrographic-isotonic-double-biothermal-diophonoscope, then let’s get to it. But if you prefer to keep it super simple (the K.I.S.S. formula) I’ve got good news for you. It really is simple.
Here’s what causes 99% of obesity and other overweight conditions. A couple of old-fashioned word describe it…gluttony and slothfulness. I know…I know…it sounds so harsh. But it’s true.
Now, those words just mean you’re putting too much in and you’re not burning enough off.
I’ve got a “super simple” acronym to help you keep your fit or fat dilemma in perspective. I’ll share it with you in just a minute.
But first, I want to also talk about a couple of the other related potential problems. For example, you might not realize how food is only one of the culprits in the battle of the bulges.
That’s right…much of the fluids you put into your body dramatically add to the weight problems. Right about now you’re thinking…OK, he’s gonna tell me to stop drinking colas. Well, actually I’m not. Sure; it would be a great idea for you to stop drinking them altogether, but even if you can reduce your intake, you can see excellent results. However; there’s a ton of evidence that shows how you ought to completely stop drinking diet drinks. Unless you enjoy ingesting the equivalent of rat poison anyway.
Wow…could that possibly be true?
Don’t take my word for it. I’m just a guy who reads about this stuff, and the evidence is startling and massive. Just “Google” the term “diet drinks” or “diet drinks” + health. It only stands to reason when you take something natural, like sugar, and replace it with “flavorings” like aspartame and others, something’s gotta give. And it’s usually the notches in your belt. It can also be lesions on your brain, though, and you really don’t want those.
Well, that’s enough to process right now. Believe me when I tell you, if you’re overweight, in almost every case…it’s your fault. And no “diet” is gonna help without you wrapping your mind around that. And taking responsibility for your own health. In fact, in almost all cases, you don’t need a diet. You need a healthy lifestyle. Of course, I’m not a doctor, and I don’t play one on TV. I’m just a guy who cares about my fellow human beings.
Let’s enjoy the music, art, and other beauty this world has to offer, and here’s how…stay well and live longer. One final point…don’t focus so much on your body that you forget your soul. The apostle Paul wrote, “for bodily exercise profits a little...” No matter how well you treat yourself in this life, you will come to an end. But your soul will go on forever. So “godliness” is more important.
Oh yeah, one more thing. I said I’d give you a simple acronym to help you with the fit or fat dilemma. It’s Y.E.S. M.A.M. And it stands for “you eat sensibly & move around more”
And never forget…there IS a rhyme and reason to life because God made you.
