Shocking News about Australian Obesity

I've just read a new article that truly shocked me. I know there are lots of people who are bigger than they'd like to be or should be. This article though, from ABC News is shocking!

I'm sure I'm not the only Australian who has comforted themselves by saying, at least we're not as bad as the Americans. Now, it seems, we are at least as bad as the good folk in the USA or even worse!

Are you shocked? Are you worried? What can you do about not being one of the Aussie fatties?

Well, it's not difficult, but it will take you time. If you're overweight or obese, it probably took you years to get there. You have to realise it may take you years to get down to the healthy weight you want to attain.

It doesn't require lots of money, it doesn't require hard work, it doesn't require starvation. Your lifestyle is probably the main reason why you've become overweight, and simple changes to your lifestyle can help you lose weight. Weight loss at its most simple, if you're overweight, comes from eating less food and doing more work than you currently do.

Our western culture is squarely aimed at turning us into couch potatoes. Sitting in front of the TV and mindlessly scoffing fatty food that is advertised on the screen in front of you can numb you to the damage you're doing.

If you want to get to the shape your body needs to be you have to become more mindful about what you do and what you eat. Learn about nutrition, learn about exercise and you will learn what you need to know. It certainly won't happen overnight, but the rubbish ads you see on TV won't actually make you healthy. They quite often lead people to greater weight, not less.

The health benefits that go with a lower weight will make it all worthwhile. And turning the TV off and doing things with your family can lead to an even better relationship for you all.

Fast Food? Fast Fat!

Do your kids hound you all the time, asking for fast food? McDonalds, Hungry Jacks and so on can play a healthy part in your child's diet, but take care.

The fast food chains don't really care about your kids, that's your job. The chains want your money, and they want it now!

If you read this article you'll have a few tools in your good parent kit.

Our children sometimes ask for things without understanding what they are asking for. And a lot of the time, just getting their parent's attention can be enough. If your kids are a little much of a handful when you give them a cuddle, it may be time to start parenting in a better way.

Cuddly can be a killer, it's time we all realised it and stop feeding our kids to death. Harsh words? Sure, but obesity shouldn't happen to children, they should be eating good healthy food and racing around the place, like we probably did when we were kids.

Do your kids a favour, make them realise fast food is a special occasion thing, not an every day thing. And follow the same rule yourself - it may not seem like it sometimes, but our kids do pay attention to the things their parents do, so do the right thing!

Your Body, Your Responsibility

We should all take responsibility for our own body. If you want to lose weight, don't relay on special potions and powders, rely on yourself. I did it that way, and you can too.

I found this article on the internet and it rang so true to me. There are so many stories, but most of them are about ordinary people stepping up and taking control of their own lives.

Read it and see if you think any of these methods might work for you. It's so simple consume less calories than you expend. If you overfill something, the excess has to go somewhere - you don't want it on your butt or tummy, do you?

Eat less, do more.
