Health is not just about the food we eat or exercise we do, it also intells of both the mental and physical, which includes your body being free of any type of illness.
If you really want to have good health, you have to start somewhere. Your are going to have to change your lifestyle. Don’t push your body with ridiculous exercises and staving yourself. Begin with light workouts while you gradually increase.
I recommend that you do not skip your meals. When you do that, your body will think that you are staving it and it will store as much fat as it could and all the exercise you’ll be doing will be in vine. You’ll not see any change.
The secret to a good health is consistancy. Whenever you make that decision to loss that weight, to eat healthy food or to begin working out, stick with it.
Don’t begin applying the changes one week and next week you go back to your old ways, it will not work. Be consistent and committed to your lifestyle change as you strive for a better health.
