Welcome to OETTL Health, Nutrition and Fitness, a website where you will find information on a variety of general health, diet and nutrition, fitness and lifestyle related topics. Why do we do this? Because your health is everything in your life, yet so few people pay full attention to maintaining it at a good level. It really is quite easy to make sure you eat a good, sensible diet, get enough daily exercise and lead a lifestyle that is conducive to maintaining a generally high level of health.
We have all heard about healthy living and that we must all work with our bodies and nature to promote the best in physical health. Many people like to hear about it but not do anything about it. This is a shame, because while you may enjoy health at this moment in your life, you may not be so lucky somewhere down the line if you don't make an effort to look after it.
Making that effort is the key to living a healthy, happy and long life. It really is not so difficult to live healthily and the benefits of doing so far outweight any small sacrifices you may need to make on your free time to achieve it (source: drharoldlong.com).
Leading a healthy life really just entails eating mostly good, wholesome and healthy food while avoiding modern processed foods with all their artificial additives, drinking lots of plain water in preference to additive laden soda and other flavored drinks and spending some time each day in relaxation as well as in exercising for as much as is comfortable to you. When you keep everything relatively simple, there is far less to complicate your life and your health!
Eating right to maintain the best level of health that you can is a priority,, especially in this day of fast food and processed meals that threaten to destabilize our civilized system of health care by overburdening it with so many obesity related illnesses. If we only watch what we eat more closely and be aware of what we are putting into our bodies, we can shift the balance back toward a healthier aspect in the population.
While people are searching for solutions to their weight problems, companies like Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig and Nutrisystem Select are leading the way in calorie restrictive dieting, but more needs to be done, certainly. It's down to the individual to take responsibility for what they are eating and drinking and to educated themselves as to the best ways to take that forward.
If that can happen, then we may begin to haul oursleves out of the obesity epidemic that has so many people running scared. We can look forward to future healthier, diet aware generations to come.
