Transcript of Healthy Eating & Exercise

Physical exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness, overall health & wellness. It is performed for various reasons including strengthening muscles & the cardiovascular system, athletic skills, & weight loss or as well as for enjoyment. It also boosts the immune system, & helps prevent heart & cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes & obesity. Helps to augment an individual's sex appeal or body image. Health care providers often call exercise the "miracle" or "wonder" drug—alluding to the wide variety of proven benefits.
Running is good for your health & an excellent way to strengthen the heart & ensure the efficient flow of blood & oxygen throughout the body. Exercise, combined with a healthy weight, is one of the best ways to naturally reduce your blood pressure if it's above normal. It also helps keep high cholesterol, in check & increases bone density, which can fend off osteoporosis.
Physical activity plays a critical role in controlling your weight. You gain weight when the calories you burn, including those burned during physical activity, are less than the calories you eat or drink. When it comes to weight management, people vary greatly in how much physical activity they need. You may need to be more active than others to achieve or maintain a healthy weight.

Physical Exercise
Control Your Weight
Regular physical activity can help keep your thinking, learning, & judgment skills sharp as you age. It can also reduce your risk of depression & may help you sleep better. Research has shown that doing aerobic or a mix of aerobic & muscle-strengthening activities 3 to 5 times a week, can give you these mental health benefits.
Improve Mental Health & Mood
Chances of Living Longer
Science shows that physical activity can reduce your risk of dying early from the leading causes of death, like heart disease & some cancers.

It's Remarkable in two ways:

People who are physically active for about 7 hours a week have a 40%, lower risk of dying early than those who are active for less than 30 minutes a week.

You don't have to do high amounts of activity to reduce your risk of premature death. You can lower the risk by doing at least 150 minutes a week of moderate activity.

The End

The American Diabetic Association points out that eating healthy foods is not the same as eating healthy if you don't control your portions. Low calories still add up when you eat more than you should. To get an idea of proper serving amounts, the strategy is to divide your plate into 4 sections.

1st. Non-Starchy Vegetables
2nd. Starchy Foods
3rd. Protein
4th. Fruit.

The number of calories that you should eat daily, depends on several factors, including gender, current weight & activity level.
Healthy eating involves mealtimes rather than skipping breakfast or lunch & then overeating later. Because your body is always "on," it always needs nutrition. At night, your metabolism slows, in the morning, breakfast supplies the power to begin your day. It is advised to eat three balanced meals a day, plus a healthy snack.
Eat lots of vegetables & fruits.

Choose whole grain foods over processed products. Brown rice, & whole wheat pasta.

Include fish in your meals 2-3 times a week.

Choose lean meats like pork loin & sirloin. Remove the skin from chicken & turkey.

Choose non-fat dairy such as skim milk, non-fat yogurt & non-fat cheese.

Choose water, unsweetened tea, & calorie-free drinks.
Swimming is a good fitness choice for just about everyone, especially those who have arthritis, musculoskeletal & physical limitations or who find other forms of exercise painful. Water's buoyancy accommodates your body, cushions stiff joints or fragile bones that might be injured by the impact of land exercises. When immersed to the waist, your body bears 50% of its weight; immersed to the chest, it's 25-35%, & to the neck, 10%.

Some Physical Benefits of Swimming Are:

Works the heart, lungs, & muscles
Improves muscular flexibility & strength
Heart muscle becomes stronger

Tai Chi is a centuries-old Chinese practice designed to exercise the mind & body through a series of gentle, flowing postures that create a kind of synchronized dance. Deeply rooted in Chinese meditation, medicine, & martial arts. These movements help the mind to focus, challenge the body, & improve the flow of what the Chinese call ''chi'', the life energy thought to sustain health & quiet the mind. It can increase both balance & leg strength in older adults. The list of benefits that regular practice of Tai Chi can bring is long, according to advocates. It can improve strength, flexibility, balance, & coordination. Some research also suggests that it may help to improve heart function & decrease blood pressure. With regular practice, you will begin to burn calories & lose weight. Experts say, it may also help you deal with emotions that can trigger overeating.
