BEEFITBOB WITH THE HAPPY HEALTHY TIP OF THE DAY

Start every meal and snack with a glass or two of water

Water sloshing in your stomach means less room for food

HAVE A HAPPY HEALTHY DAY


BUMPY ROAD AHEAD


BUMPY ROAD AHEAD

From the time I was in the eighth grade I was on some sort of diet. After college it was a game every new year to make a resolution that this was going to be the year to get lean, trim and healthy. I have tried most every diet to hit the market

. In 1977 I wrote a diet book titled “Give up the fat-The diet fat to fit kit.” For about six months I travelled around the country giving talks, appearing on TV and giving interviews to reporters. It was my 15 minutes of fame.

Then I hit a bump in the road. One customer said loudly and often that she read the book three times and gained weight. My logic had been so brilliant. If you eat less calories than your body burns you will lose weight. It never crossed my mind that if you kept this up for an extended amount of time you would starve to death.

Some of last year diets reappear, and new fantabulous ones hit the market every New year. Old actors,“has been football players” ,and talk show folks are new fish in the diet market waters. It is the economy big push to get the after Christmas market a boost. The bump in the road hits right about now. Getting seven meals a day in the US mail to lose hundreds of pounds and look like a…. well you know the drill. The odds for success are about the same as winning the lottery. Got your ticket? The drawing is big this week.

On June 12, 2016 I started walking every day. Then the routine of eating seven or more fresh and fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nut was becoming a habit. Drinking more water and less sugar drinks ended up with lots of water and no sugar drinks. I began watching what was good stuff to eat and what was not so good. There were less bumps in the road. Some weeks I lost a couple pounds, sometimes lost none, and even some weeks gained a pound. I felt better, my blood pressure was getting under control.

 When there is a bump in the road, I get directions from those who have been there. My top Doctor of 25 years runs two miles in the morning and evening on the treadmill. My sports Doctor has run seventeen Boston Marathons. I have had the opportunity to travel to eight Iron man and women events in the US, observe them and ask their advice.bob

Long ago I stopped asking advice from diet sellers and get my answers from those who walk their talk. Great athletes are consistent. They teach that is OK to fail but not OK to quit. They work at what they do, then do it better. 

When there is a bump in the road, Drink lots of water, eat good food, walk briskly, and get a good night’s sleep.

GENERATING ENERGY UPDATE

 

 

IMG_1251BEEFITBOB AND THE HAPPY HEALTHY TIP OF THE DAY

We don't have energy. We must provide the fuel to produce energy.in our body. Energy is not just physical, it is also mental  and emotional. We need  just two fuels, water and food.

Drugs , poor food and drinks ,bad advice, greed and lack of ethics. are  big proplems in the Health and Wellness industry. Using common sense  will go a long way to  generating energy.

 

Warning.

Lots of folks who hire workers now require drug tests. Nicotene is a drug and so they don't want to t hire smokers. Insurance companies can and will raise your rate if you start smoking. Obesity is getting out of control and the trend for the  obease in the working place is getting different. If you are obease you are probably starting to feel more pressure.

More data is indicating that medicine  is not  always the cure. The one in the mirror might be  the one who could solve the proplem in many, many cases. It is not too late to start.  Drink water an eat healty food.  You know that means fresh and fresh frozen fruits and veggies, and nuts. Start walking every day and work up to 40 to 60 minutes or more of brisk walking.. If you are in a wheel chair or bed ridden, whggle and waggle what ever you can. It is not too latee to start.

Have a Happy Healthy Day.


YOU GOT NO ENERGY

BEEFITBOB DECIDED TO GET LONG WINDED TODAY

 

IMG_1125Energy is not natural. It must be generated.  Energy   is generated in a Power Plant.  The power plant needs fuel to generate the energy that makes things go. This power plant could use coal, water, wind, sun, nuclear material or something else to generate the energy that makes things go.

I AM NOT SURE HOW MUCH OF THIS IS ACTUAL AND FACTUAL. You all know Willie Nelson the singer? He started a power plant here in Texas, and he used dirty grease that came from the food industry.  I remember when my kids were little, driving by a potato chip factory.  It stunk awful. That is the stinky stuff Willie was going to use as fuel for big 18-wheel truck fuel. It was cheaper to manufacture than diesel fuel. There was a fortune to be made. There was a problem. The stinky stuff was so bad it gunned up truck motors. That stinky stuff is called trans-fat. WILLIE IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE PEOPLE.

I tell this story because our body needs energy to run. It requires fuel to generate energy every day.  The two “must have” fuels are water and food.  There are only three kinds of food, protein, carbohydrates, and fats. There is great food, average food and horrible food.  There are other things we but in or body, some may be OK and some not OK. We can also put too much stuff or too little in our body. Me, I work hard to keep it simple, drinking lots of water and seven or more fresh or fresh frozen fruits and veggies and nuts every day.  I drink no sugar drinks and quit smoking 55 years ago.

It is very important that we take the steps to generate energy, not just physical, but mental alertness, and positive thinking. Being negative and unhappy is easy. Listen to Abe Lincoln when he said, “Most people are as happy as the make up their minds to be”.

The lower your energy, the lower your happiness, the lower your enthusiasm, the lower your confidence and the higher your chances of sickness, illness and chronic diseases. Your confidence sucks, you get fatter, you stress out frequently.

When you decide to generate energy, you change every one of those  factors. You begin every day Happy and Healthy.

And there is more. Energy is a positive force to increased learning, creativity, and taking positive steps to get more of the things you want to do done.

Generating energy converts stress into manageable action. Generating energy gets you up happy every day. Generating energy makes you want to drink lots of water, eat fresh and frozen fruits and veggies and nuts, walk 10000 steps and get seven or more hours of sleep every day.  Have a HAPPY HEALTHY DAY
