Millions everyday face problems with obesity. Obesity is a very serious condition and should not be taken lightly. There is no doubt an obesity epidemic.
Can it be prevented? Can the epidemic be reversed?
If you are obese or at risk take these 5 traps into consideration and incorporate them into your life with your obesity battle.
Trap 1 – I have bad genetics
This is a very common excuse to defend being overweight and obese. No matter what type of genetics you got from your parents, whether good or bad can fix a bad diet and lack of activity or exercise.
Instead of blaming your gene pool take responsibility for what you do. Take responsibility for what you put in your mouth and how much activity you do. You can’t pass the buck forever; eventually you need to take responsibility for your actions.
Trap 2 – I have thyroid problems
In some instances this can be a legitimate reason for being obese. But for others this is another excuse or cop-out.
Even if you do have a slow or sluggish thyroid there are plenty of foods you can eat to speed up your metabolism. Eggs, salmon, broccoli, black beans, and citrus fruits are a few great examples.
Trap 3 – I don’t have time to exercise
Most people have super busy schedules and they don’t have time to do everything they want. But don’t let your busy schedule stop you from working out. Regular exercise at least 3 times a week can stop and prevent weight gain problems.
Question. Do you have 10 to 20 minutes a day to devote to exercising?
You can construct a quality workout that lasts 10 to 20 minutes around your schedule. The key is to get your heart rate up to burn calories.
Trap 4 – I’m too old
Whenever someone uses this excuse, I quickly ask them if they know who Tony Horton is (he is the creator of P90X). Then I bring it to their attention that he is in his mid 50’s.
He is in better shape than most of the population and he is in his 50’s. He is more ripped than most guys in their 20’s.
Trap 5 – I don’t have energy to exercise
This a funny excuse since you actually are more energized when you workout. If you are dragging butt, get a quick workout in to get your energy levels up.
A great question you should ask yourself is… Do I love myself enough to take care of my body? When you answer this question honestly you will face your problems with obesity head on and conquer them.
