SHAPE UP FOR GOOD
IT’S PREACHING TIME!!! SHAPE UP AND BE BLESSED!!
Being in shape is not just about been “sexy”, looking trim & lean, fitting into the society or pleasing your partner/would be partner, its way more than that.
It’s about taking complete charge of your HEALTH, WEALTH and consequently your LIFE for good!!
That extra weight can cost you your health, your savings and of course your life. The bigger the number on the scale, the greater your health-care costs, according to a new Duke University study.
This results doesn’t surprise weight-loss experts. “We now know that fat cells produce noxious chemicals linked not only with heart disease but also with various cancers, diabetes, arthritis, and other illnesses.”
The biggest health risks tend to come with BELLY FAT, which builds up around internal organs, Dr. Cederquist says. To keep yours in check, look beyond the scale. Run a measuring tape around your waist just above your hipbone—if you get a number of 40 inches or higher for men & 35 inches or higher for women it’s time to get serious about shedding some pounds
If you are considered to be overweight, losing as little as 5 percent of your body weight may lower your risk for several diseases.
Slow and steady weight loss of 1/2 to 2 pounds per week, and not more than 3 pounds per week, is the safest way to lose weight.
