Statistics show that obesity is rising very rapidly in the United States. What’s more alarming is that the percentage of obese children has also been increasing throughout the years. The obesity epidemic is brought about by unhealthy diets and lack of exercise. Particularly young kids, who no longer want to engage in recreations such as playing in the playground or participating in sports like basketball and baseball. Kids nowadays prefer staying at home to watch TV, play on their computers, PSP, PS3 and other game consoles. Combined with a diet mostly composed of sodas, burgers, and chips, it wouldn’t be a surprise that these children will be sick at a very young age and not live past 50.
Obesity happens when you consume too many calories but doesn’t burn them through exercise. Although the biggest factor that causes people to become overweight is the environment, with the proper will power, the condition can be prevented. Your risk of acquiring dangerous diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, stroke, arthritis, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease, and cancer, increases if you are or become overweight. That’s why as early as now, take care of your body by having a healthy diet and do regular exercises. On the other hand, if your child is obese or overweight, you can take a positive step and make your entire family practice eating healthy foods daily, and you can start an activity for the whole family that encourages movement of the body, and this can become your child and the whole family’s exercise routines.
The Asian diet is a diet that has become popular at present. People who are looking for an effective diet program discovers the Asian diet, finds out it works, and they tell their family and friends about it. Through word of mouth, many people have discovered the health benefits one can get by eating healthy Asian recipes daily, and practicing Asian Fitness and Exercise. Another way that people continue to find out about the Asian diet is through the internet. Several websites have been created to inform the public about the said diet and its benefits. A more comprehensive source of information about the diet can be found on e-books as well.
One website online that I have confirmed to be accurate is Dina’s Asian Diet, Nutrition and Fitness blog. Unlike other websites I came across with, the information that can be seen on the blog was from a person born and raised in the Asian region. You can learn on her blog a lot about the Asian diet, healthy and delicious Asian recipes, and some Asian health tips. It was on the said blog where I learned about the health benefits of bee products like honey and bee propolis.
