Health Is Vital

Health is taken for granted, until you can't any more. In this blog I hope to put down on paper some of the articles I come across and want to remember, about health. I will be personalizing these articles to apply to me. I am diabetic, over weight, have high blood pressure and tinnitus, so these are the things you will find here. I will include nutrition, exercise, and holistic health, and many other ideas. I work in the health profession, particularly mental health, and have an interest in suicide prevention; so these topics will also be covered in this blog. Please, if you are suffering reach out.

Article: Eat to Reduce Belly Fat

This article is form the email stream "Living with Diabetes from Everyday Health.  I was looking for the easy fix for my belly fat, however this article basically says there is no easy fix.  However it does say that to lose one to two pounds a week then you should eat 500 to 1000 less calories per day.  Now that is a big goal.  Here is the exact quote, "To reduce weight in this area [the midsection], it's important to go on a diet that includes plenty of fruits and vegetables, lean protein, low-fat dairy, and whole grains, and to reduce portion sizes and therefore caloric intake.  It points out how belly fat can lead to problems such as heart disease and type II diabetes.  In terms of exercise, it suggest cardiovascular mixed with resistance training to build muscle.
