Extra pounds are now okay as long you live a healthy lifestyle. One that consists of food low in saturated fats and you must be well hydrated. Eating fruits and vegetables with a sensible intake of protein and good fats, along with some exercise, and you can weigh up to thirty pounds over the current BMI scale. This is what I heard tonight coming out of a new study. The new measure takes into consideration other factors not currently available on the BMI index, which is determined by just height and weight.
Yesterday we walked over four miles. While walking the beach, you are unaware of the miles. You can walk from one town to another without realizing the distance. I am not sure if all the walking caused anything but sore legs, but I certainly hope so. Every pound lost is reflective of much work. Working out consists of many different activities, such as gardening.
This is how Saturday turned out. Up early for our walk to breakfast, followed with our walk to the beach and back through the town for shopping, a total of four miles. Then to the pool where any exercise there is not felt but counts none the less. We walked to every eating establishment and every tavern for dinner. Then again, after dinner before bed.
It was not a time to saying no to little treats because that certainly will defeat the purpose. Instead, I have less. You'd be surprised how that will suffice. Never allow yourself to feel deprived.
By the end of the summer, we should all be a lot fitter and wiser for it. Good health does not necessarily mean weight according to just your height anymore, interesting!. Got to read more on that.
