Your Health and Fitness

Updated: Mar 3

Do you know that the obesity rate in the United States is around 42.4%? That means we are getting close to one-half of American citizens being overweight. The U.S. is one of the most obese countries in proportion to its population. In addition, research indicates that heart disease takes over 655,000 lives in the U.S. each year. With unhealthy eating habits and minimal exercise gradually becoming the norm, Americans' overall health and quality of life are at significant risk.

At Embracing Healthy Aging, I want to equip you with the resources, tools, and insight you need to get on track. Whether you are entirely new to health and fitness or are struggling to regain your footing after a relapse, the information will help you start anew, put yourself first, and reach your goals.

While some people solely focus on diet or exercise, combining the two is essential. If you agree that you should start by getting up to speed on the basics, I suggest taking an in-depth course that walks you through the benefits of nutrition and fitness. You may be wondering why I would recommend that you take courses. The reason is they give you details on what you should do and why you should use certain things.

Here are some recommendations:

Workout Design Certification

Healthy Nutrition Through Juices Certification

Holistic Nutrition Certification

Sports Nutrition Certification

Depending on the specific areas you are interested in, choose the right certification course to get started. As you familiarize yourself with the ins and outs of nutrition and exercise, you can also set up a business and share your knowledge with clients. However, if you are strictly looking to work on your diet and fitness journey, this is a great place to begin.

Start slow. You will learn to create a meal plan based on your BMI (body mass index), BMR (basal metabolic rate), body type, health concerns, goals, and food preferences. To jump-start your journey, I recommend replacing foods with little nutrients like (white bread, potatoes, sugar, etc.) with nutrient-laden alternatives. These include whole grains (brown rice, quinoa, whole wheat, oats, etc.), fruit, vegetables, nuts and seeds, beans, and lean meat.

If you plan to lose weight, make sure your caloric intake (the number of calories consumed) is less than your caloric expenditure (the number of calories burned).

Let us discuss the exercise.

Creating a personalized workout plan that suits your lifestyle is imperative. Without regular exercise, you will struggle to maintain your health in the long run. A specialized workout course will help you grasp advanced training techniques, stamina-building strategies, cardio for weight loss, and more.

As you revitalize your health, you can become a professional fitness coach in the future. Whatever your plans maybe, I have got you covered!
