Managing Mind and Body

Dire warnings in the UK media continue to remind the general public that obesity is on the increase across all ages and demographics. It won’t be long before more than a third of the entire population is obese.

In order to help people manage their weight, I prefer to set a good example. Eat healthy. Don’t over eat. Don’t snack between meals. Yes, we all know this. I remain vigilant in this regard, but add one important ingredient: exercise. I ride a bike and usually cycle around 115 to 120 KM per week. The exercise isn’t a licence to eat as much or whatever I want, but my metabolism keeps burning off whatever I put in it. Healthy food, sensible portions and exercise. Keep these three principles in motion for a lifetime and obesity will always be kept at bay.
