Many people are concerned about their diets and getting enough exercise
today. Here is a little bit of health trivia that may help you.
Many herbal supplements claim to heal all types of ailments. But did you
know that those supplements are not tested by the Food and Drug Administration
to back up any of their claims? So closely consider all their claims before
taking health supplements.
Here is some exercise health trivia for you. Did you know that eating peppermint
might help you feel refreshed while exercising and give you more energy?
Even exercising as little as ten minutes a day can help be of benefit to
your health. However, the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends
thirty minutes of exercise each day. The good news is you do not have to
do all thirty minutes at once. In fact, if you start your morning with ten
minutes of vigorous exercise each day, you may be able to boost your metabolism.
If you add fun activities such as hikes or biking, you may start to look
forward to exercising.
Do you know how the AMA defines obesity? According to AMA standards, you
are obese if you are 30% over your ideal body weight. Of course, you will
need to get a body mass index to find out if you are over the 30%. Being
obese can lead to an increased chance of getting cancer, osteoarthritis,
sleep apnea and gall bladder disease, so it is important to keep your weight
down. To help do this, you should combine exercise and diet. A good diet
includes one where you count calories, watch your fat intake, and eat more
frequent, smaller meals instead of three large ones. One of the best health
trivia hits is to avoid fried foods. And remember that eating fast food
is almost always bad for you.
